Griffiths joins Hampshire on loan
Lancashire County Cricket Club can announce that fast bowler Gavin Griffiths has joined Hampshire on a short-term loan deal.
Griffiths made his breakthrough into the Lancashire First Team last year and impressed in the NatWest T20 Blast Finals Day against Hampshire and Northamptonshire respectively.
He became just the sixth bowler to bowl a maiden at Finals Day, in his opening over on his T20 debut against Hampshire before taking 2/23 in the final as Lancashire Lightning lifted the trophy for the first time in the Club’s history.
This year, Griffiths, aged 22, has made just one appearance for the Red Rose, in Lancashire’s opening NatWest T20 Blast game of the season against Derbyshire Falcons at Emirates Old Trafford where he sustained a hand injury after being struck by Hamish Rutherford.
Griffiths made his Second XI debut for Hampshire against Surrey on Thursday and he’s in the side to face the same opposition in the Second XI Championship at the Ageas Bowl this week.
