Lancashire County Cricket Club awards bowler James Anderson a benefit year.

England fast-bowler James Anderson has been awarded a benefit year in 2012 by Lancashire.

The 29-year-old made his Lancs debut in 2002 before being fast-tracked into the England set-up.

Anderson has taken 209 first-class wickets for the Red Rose county, although his appearances in recent seasons have been limited due to his international commitments.

"To be awarded a benefit by your county is an immense honour and I am naturally delighted. It is a privilege to represent Lancashire County Cricket Club and I am grateful that they have awarded me a benefit," said Anderson.

Anderson is currently ranked at number two in the ICC Test bowling rankings.
