Stuart Law has taken over from Mark Chilton as Lancashire's captain for the 2008 season.

Law, 39, played one Test for Australia, but is now a British citizen. "It's a role that would excite me at this stage in my career," he said a few weeks ago. "I never came into county cricket aspiring to lead a side, but now all the reasons I said no to back then are not an issue."

Since joining from Essex in 2002, Law has become one of the Lancashire's most prolific run-scorers, amassing over 10,000 runs in all competitions - with a first-class career average of 51.33.

He remains the most successful captain in Australian domestic cricket, captaining Queensland to four Pura Cup titles and two one-day trophies - he is still Queensland's all-time leading run-scorer in first-class cricket.

Law recently signed a new 12-month contract with Lancashire, which will keep him at the club until at least the end of the 2008 season. Paul Horton is being tipped to be Law's vice captain.
