Durham Jets star Gareth Breese answers 20 quick questions in our brand new feature

With the new Natwest T20 Blast competition starting in less than a month, we decided to fire 20 quick questions at each member of the Durham Jets squad.

The topics include T20 cricket, their teammates, football and more!

Long-serving allrounder Gareth Breese bravely stepped up to be the first man under the spotlight. The Jamaican-born star has a fantastic T20 bowling record, with 81 wickets at an average of just 22 runs apiece.

So Gareth...

T20 debut?
Against Notts back in 2004!

Best T20 innings?
I'd have to say winning the game against Notts last year with Stokesy (Ben Stokes). I only got 32 but it was about the context of the game.

Highest T20 score?

Best T20 bowling figures?


Favourite T20 moment?

Getting to finals day in 2008.

Worst T20 moment?

I think every game we lose!

Best thing about T20 cricket?

It's the crowds - it brings quite a bit of atmosphere to it and that's very nice to play with.

Favourite song to walk out to?

'Don't Worry' by Bob Marley.

Best T20 player in World Cricket?

There's quite a few but I'd have to go with Chris Gayle.

Who will win this year's Natwest T20 Blast?

I'd love it to be Durham!

Best dressed Durham player?

I'd have to say Captain Paul Collingwood.

Worst dressed Durham player?
Max Morley - for his skin tight jeans!

Favourite holiday destination?

Favourite away ground?
I'll have to say probably Lords.

Best friend in cricket?
Callum Thorp.


None really.

Favourite sport apart from cricket?

I haven't really got one - I'm one of those boring ones, I just stick to the sport I know!

Do you support a football team?
No I don't.

Best footballer in the Durham squad?

The worst is Scott Borthwick!

Messiest roommate?
I've been lucky, I haven't had many - I had Callum Thorp for quite a few years and then Gordon Muchall and they're pretty good!
