Lancashire’s Australian ace Glenn Maxwell has expressed his admiration towards his good friend and team-mate, Josh Bohannon, who sensationally produced a 174-run haul during the Red Rose’s impressive victory over Derbyshire to secure promotion to the first division.

For Bolton’s Bohannon, it was his maiden first-team century. Both Maxwell and Bohannon have formed a close friendship, and following Maxwell’s return to Australia, the pair have lots to reminisce on.

“My heart was pumping the whole time, and it was the most joy I’ve ever had for someone getting their first hundred,” Maxwell said.

“I turned up at the first training session at Loughborough (in April) and thought, ’This kid can bat’.

“He hasn’t spent a lot of time at the crease, so to get the opportunity at number three and play the way he did (was great).

“I’ll be staying in contact with him for as long as I can. We are very close friends.”

Head Coach Glen Chapple hailed the achievement of his side today saying: “We have achieved our main aim but obviously we want to win the division and that remains the target.

“We spoke before this game about making sure we were fully committed and we didn’t want to take our foot off the gas because we’ve played so well for so long despite suffering disappointments in the knock out competitions. It was important we reinforced how well the lads have played this year by finishing well.

“The cricket we’ve played in our opinion has been of a high standard and the commitment the lads have shown throughout the season has been great – it is something we are looking to build on season after season and this performance was full of character.

And Chapple was full of praise for the innings by Josh Bohannon that helped set up the win.

“Everyone likes a scrappy hundred,” he grinned. “But Josh’s wasn’t one of those – it was brilliant. His timing, the way he went about scoring runs, his running between the wickets was aggressive and the way he put the pressure in the opposition – for a young lad to be challenged with batting at number three it has really paid off and everyone is delighted for him.”
