Tom Lungley, the Derbyshire bowler, will join Lancashire on a four-week loan to cover their growing injury list.
Lungley, 30, has been drafted into the Lancashire attack to stand in for a string of injured players, including Glen Chapple, Sajid Mahmood, Tom Smith and Steven Cheetham. Also, Andrew Flintoff and James Anderson are away on England duty.
"Injuries are a part of sport, but to have the majority of our bowlers in the treatment room at the one time is extremely unlucky," said Mike Watkinson, Lancashire's cricket director. "We've had no option but to look outside our ranks for personnel" he added.
Lungley's immediate availability could mean he could debut for Lancashire in their Championship match against Durham tomorrow at Old Trafford.
