Durham First Class Debut - April 2011 v Durham MCCU (h)
Mark Wood's explosive pace accounted for 27 batsmen last season as the young seamer helped secure the 2013 LV=County Championship title.
The Ashington-born bowler also chipped in with some useful contributions down the order. The highlight of those was an unbeaten half-century in an early season win over Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.
England Lions came calling in the winter, and Wood bowled superbly on a flat track in Sri Lanka to take 5-32. Unfortunately, a side strain forced an early departure from the tour, but he remains on the National team's radar.
A former Minor Counties cricketer with Northumberland, Wood made his first class debut in 2011 against Durham MCCU.
He is a positive, lively character who posesses the enormous potential to become one of Durham's finest fast bowlers.
