Brief bio

Date of birth - 26 May 1976, Shotley Bridge, County Durham
Durham First Class Debut - May 1996 v Northamptonshire (h)

Paul Collingwood carries on breaking records as he enters his 22nd year as a professional cricketer, becoming the club’s record century-maker during the 2016 season.

The three figures in the away match at Surrey were his 22nd in first-class cricket for Durham, moving him away from a tie of 21 with Dale Benkenstein – and the memorable Finals Day catch against the Yorkshire Vikings at Edgbaston proved there’s plenty yet for Collingwood to offer.

It was in the NatWest T20 Blast where Collingwood enjoyed a starring role last season, averaging 69.50 even though he nursed a thumb injury for much of the campaign, with a best of 44 not out in the opening game against the Nottinghamshire Outlaws.

The all-rounder has committed to play until at least the end of this season after signing a one-year extension last year and has been granted a testimonial for his service to the club.

A three-times Ashes winner and still the only Englishman to lift a global trophy in cricket, Collingwood has again used his expertise to coach the national side during the winter and has combined this with punditry work.
