Lancashire Lightning have re-signed James Faulkner for the 2020 T20 Blast.

The Australian allrounder returns for his fourth season with the county, having previously appeared in 2015, 2018 and 2019.

He has played 40 T20 matches for Lancashire, taking 56 wickets at an average of 17.53 and hitting 461 runs.

"I am thrilled to be returning to Emirates Old Trafford for next season’s Vitality Blast. It feels like a home away from home for me and I cannot wait to get started again in May," he said, according to a Lancashire press release.

"We were unlucky not to progress past the quarter-finals last year and we are all determined to put that right in 2020. We will be going all out to repeat the success of 2015, which remains one of the proudest memories in my cricketing career.

"Emirates Old Trafford is an amazing place to play cricket and I can’t wait to reunite with the squad next summer. I’m determined to win the Vitality Blast trophy back for the club."
