Lancashire cricket captain Keaton Jennings believes his county can take inspiration from the explosive playing style of England captain Ben Stokes and head coach Brendon McCullum have introduced to the national side.

Speaking to Merseysportlive, the batter said: “The way Stokesy and Baz (McCullum) have got the guys playing is (becoming) more of an influence.

“The belief that that you can win from any point, and it’s about making sure that you (Lancashire) go about playing, not necessarily in a similar way, but to sort of find ways to try and win.

“Obviously they’ve (England) got different restrictions around, sort of, there’s no relegation, you can pick the players you want to fit the mould.

“We want guys to be the best cricketers that they can, to try and influence the game as best they can.

“It’s not about me going out and getting runs, or that Bellsy (George Bell) and Wellsy (Luke Wells) get wickets.

“It’s about whoever’s got the ball in their hand or whoever’s got the bat in their hand, that they influence the game as best they can.”

Lancashire drew their first game of the County Championship season with Surrey after no play was possible on either the first or final day in Manchester due to rain.

Jennings and co travel to Hampshire on Friday, and will be striving for their first victory of the season at the second time of asking.
