Faulkner fires up


AUSTRALIAN allrounder James Faulkner helped Lancashire to a 13-run win over Northampto­nshire in the final of British domestic cricket’s Twenty20 Blast tournament at Edgbaston yesterday. He dismissed both openers, finishing with 2-25.

Faulkner, man of the match in Australia’s World Cup final win over New Zealand at the MCG in March, was fined £UK10,000 ($A21,500) and banned from driving for two years by an English court on August 5 after being found to be nearly three times over the legal alcohol limit when his car was involved in a minor collision with the back of another vehicle in Manchester.
