James Tredwell had never even met Simon Kerrigan before they joined the England Lions squad last weekend but the Kent off-spinner is already impressed by the young slow left-armer who took six wickets in Australia A’s first innings.

Tredwell was full of praise for his teammate as the home side finished the third day at Old Trafford with a lead of 196 runs.

Kerrigan’s six for 59 helped the Lions restrict the tourists to 277 in reply to 315 and the home side closed the day on 158 for three, with Joe Root scoring 70 and Jonny Bairstow unbeaten on 73.
