Brief Bio

Twitter - @MAWood33
Date of birth - 11 January 1990 Ashington, Northumberland.
Durham First Class Debut - April 2011 v Durham MCCU (h)

2015 was the year Mark Wood fulfilled every cricketer's dream - delivering the winning ball of an Ashes series.

Durham unfortunately only saw Wood once during the season - he scored 66 and took six wickets against Nottinghamshire - but all at the club were delighted to watch him make an impact for England.

The famous moment came at Trent Bridge during the Fourth Test when his delivery clattered into Nathan Lyon's stumps and secured the famous urn, placing him among England folklore.

But Wood's infectious personality saw him become a favourite with many around the country, the type of character that has epitomised England's new era of cricket under Trevor Bayliss, and he remains a dressing room favourite whenever back at the Emirates Riverside.

He performed well on tough pitches against Pakistan in Dubai and Abu Dhabi, but injury ruled him out of the South Africa tour and the subsequent ICC World T20.

A former Minor Counties cricketer with Northumberland, Wood is a positive, lively character who possesses enormous potential.

Better luck with injuries could see him become one of Durham's - and England's - finest fast bowlers in the coming years.
