After being relegated last season, Lancashire have signed Australia pace bowler Peter Siddle in order to boost their chances of getting promoted back up to Division One of the County Championship.
Siddle will be available from the beginning of the season until the end of July and is expected to primarily feature in the County Championship.
Siddle enjoyed a successful stint with Nottinghamshire last season as he took 37 wickets at an average of 31.48.
“I enjoyed my time in England last season with Nottinghamshire and when I heard of Lancashire’s interest I had no hesitation in speaking with Ashley,” Siddle said. “I am looking forward to playing my cricket at Old Trafford, which is such a fantastic international cricket ground.”
Lancashire head coach Ashley Giles added: “Peter is a world class bowler with a tremendous pedigree and having him available for such an extended period will give our County Championship campaign a real boost. He has previous experience of playing in English conditions and I am looking forward to him adding some additional quality to our squad.”
