WICKET Anderson goes - Lancashire all out

Lancashire 337 & 247, Durham 281

Jimmy Anderson's appearance as last man batting with a runner takes up 17 minutes - and helps to add 11 runs - before he is last out.

Recalled Australian Nathan Rimmington, coming in round the wicket, bowls the left-hander with an inswinger that removed Anderson's off stump to finish with 4-42, for career-best match figures of 8-116, after his 4-74 in the first innings.

Lancashire have a lead of 303, with no Anderson to help them defend it, following his pre-Ashes calf strain scare on Tuesday. But could those 11 runs come in handy later?

Anderson got four of them, while helping Saqib Mahmood move on to 31 not out.

Well, even in the short history of first-class cricket at Sedbergh School, that was a pretty dramatic day.

A calf injury to Jimmy Anderson that took him out of the attack.

Then a Durham collapse as their last five wickets went down for just 18 runs in 10 overs, followed by an extraordinary start to the Lancashire innings as they were reduced to 10-2 inside the first four balls of Chris Rushworth's first over.

At 59-5, fuelled by a daft run-out, Lancs led by only 115. But, by the end of the day, Lancs skipper Dane Vilas had made 74 to steer his side into a 260-run lead.

That ought to be a matchwinning lead already. But, don't forget, Lancashire will not have use of Anderson tomorrow. He will be having treatment on his calf strain as he begins his battle to be fit to face the Aussies at Edgbaston on 1 August.
