Lancashire have signed Australia all-rounder James Faulkner on a two-year Twenty20 contract.

The 27-year-old had a spell with the Red Rose in 2015 and helped the team to the 2015 T20 Blast title.

Faulkner was due to rejoin the county for 2017, but the move was blocked by Australia because of a knee injury.

The pace bowler has taken 170 wickets in 149 T20 matches, including 24 international games, and scored 1,098 runs at a strike rate of 125.
