“It’s all pretty much sorted,” explained Croft. “Lancashire are going through the contract, and Auckland are going through theirs. Going away to play first-class cricket means it will be something extra special.
“I have never been to New Zealand, but I have been to Australia twice. I have certainly never been away to play first-class cricket.”
Croft will become the fourth Lancashire player to play for Auckland in recent times, joining Mal Loye, Lou Vincent and James Anderson.
Bradley Scott is now at ND.
