India all-rounder Washington Sundar could make his debut in English county cricket this season, for Lancashire.Sundar’s move, however, will be subject to fitness, according to ESPNcricinfo. Sundar could become the second Indian to feature in the country season after Cheteshwar Pujara, who has already played for Sussex in division two.

The 22-year-old Chennai player, who has nearly recovered from his hand injury, and and is currently doing his rehabilitation at the National Cricket Academy (NCA), could play in three County Championship games from July, and the entire 50-over Royal London Cup.
