Brief bio

Date of birth - 8 October 1982 Sunderland, County Durham
Durham First Class Debut - May 2002 v Sri Lanka (home)

Although Ben Stokes grabbed the headlines with a sensational 164, a vital 89 from Phil Mustard ensured that Durham reached the final of the Royal London One-Day Cup.

Mustard's innings against Nottinghamshire Outlaws was one of seven occasions that the left-hander passed fifty during the summer of 2014.

His highest score arrived during the opening game of the campaign. The Sunderland-born star accumulated a patient 91 against Northamptonshire and showed similar grit and determination with another half-century during a low-scoring 50 over clash at Cardiff later in the season.

Those knocks belied Mustard's reputation as an explosive, attacking batsman, although he showed he has lost none of those traits with a 27-ball 54 in a T20 match against Derbyshire.

Mustard has entertained supporters and teammates alike since his first class debut 13 years ago.

The former England wicketkeeper made an important contribution to Durham's remarkable 2013 campaign with six half-centuries, 64 catches and even a first Championship wicket.

Mustard has gone on to become the county's leading appearance maker in both first class and T20 cricket, which has ensured that his name is firmly engrained in Durham's highly successful recent history.
