BBC Radio Lancashire's Scott Read:

"A special day for Lancashire's Andrea Agathangelou, who scored his maiden century for the Red Rose.

"The 23-year-old South African-born batting all-rounder only came into the side at the 11th hour due to a freak injury to Simon Katich.

"Katich was hit on the temple with a ball during net practice on day one and was taken to hospital but later given the all-clear and discharged.

"That opened the way for Agathangelou, who has been on the books at Old Trafford since 2010, and he's certainly taken his chance."
