Durham First Class Debut - May 2002 v Sri Lanka (home)
Phil Mustard has entertained supporters and teammates alike with his explosive batting style and positive personality since his first class debut 12 years ago.
Nicknamed "Colonel", the former England wicketkeeper made an important contribution to Durham's remarkable 2013 campaign.
Six half-centuries, 64 catches and even a first Championship wicket further underlined his value to the county, as Durham lifted the four day title for the third time in six years.
Earlier in his career, the Sunderland-born star made 12 appearances for England before Matt Prior made a return from injury in 2008. The highlight of those games was a quick fire 83 against New Zealand in Napier.
Since then, Mustard has gone on to become the county's leading appearance maker in both first class and T20 cricket.
A talented sportsman and popular character, Mustard is a name firmly engrained in Durham's highly successful recent history.
