Arron Lilley is an off-spinning allrounder used by Lancashire primarily as a T20 specialist. He played a key role as Lancashire ended a 16-year wait without a limited-overs trophy by winning the NatWest Blast at Edgbaston in 2015. Lilley and his fellow spinner Stephen Parry had strangled opponents all season, both conceding less than seven runs an over, and their combination was a decisive factor on a slow surface.
Lilley, who fires in his offspin at a pace that would even have made an illustrious predecessor "Flat Jack" Simmons blush, joined Lancashire's Academy in 2011 after making his Second XI debut in 2010. He was a key member of the Lancashire side that won the Second XI Trophy in 2012, taking 19 wickets. He made his senior debut in a Clydesdale Bank 40 match against Worcestershire in the same season but the match was abandoned before he had chance to bat or bowl.
His standing grew the following season, where his bowling impressed in the limited-overs game to add to Lancashire's plentiful spin options. There was progress in the Championship, too, nothing better than a career-best 5 for 23 against Derbyshire at Southport in Lancashire's promotion year in 2015.
