Anderson out to help Lancs
James Anderson wants to give something back to Lancashire with an extended run in the side this summer.
England's record Test wicket-taker will not be involved in the World Cup, so he will have an extended spell in the Lancashire side for the first time in a while.
He is also expected to play his part in their Royal London Cup campaign and is looking forward to doing his bit for the Red Rose.
"It's exciting to have a bit of a stint here and give a bit back," he told the Lancashire Telegraph. "I owe a lot to Lancashire for what they've helped me with over the years, how they've helped me get to where I am.
"So it will be nice to have a good stint and hopefully get us off to a good start in the Championship.
"Promotion is all it's about this year. It's not going to be easy because there's some strong teams in this division."
