Cricinfo staff

Matt Prior and James Anderson have been made available by England for the Twenty20 Finals Day at Edgbaston on Saturday.

Anderson, if selected by Lancashire, will take part in the first semi-final, against Gloucestershire, then Prior will line-up for Sussex against Kent in the second match. Prior hasn't played domestic Twenty20 this season with Andrew Hodd proving an able deputy with the bat and behind the stumps.

Lancashire may also include Andrew Flintoff in their line-up after he was named in the current County Championship match against Sussex where he is playing as a batsman following ankle surgery.

Kent and Gloucestershire did not have any players on international duty.
