BBC Lancashire's Scott Read on Matthew Parkinson

BBC Lancashire's Scott Read on Matthew Parkinson

"He was the highlight of the T20 campaign."

BBC Lancashire commentator Scott Read believes that the emergence of leg spinner Matthew Parkinson in last year's T20 Blast campaign was the highlight of the Club's campaign.

Lancashire Lightning were knocked out of last year's competition in the group stages, but Parkinson impressed, taking 14 wickets in nine games. His average in those games was less than 14 and his economy rate was 6 runs an over. 

He particularly impressed during Lancashire Lightning's Roses clash against Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley, taking 4-23.
