Brief bio

Date of birth - 19 April 1990 Sunderland, County Durham
Durham First Class Debut - September 2009 v Hampshire (away)

Scott Borthwick further enhanced his burgeoning reputation as a batsman with another great first-class season at number three, becoming Durham's top run-scorer in the format for a second season running.

He was a figure of consistency at the top of the order, registering 11 half-centuries and averaging over 40 in red ball cricket, the only Durham player to do so in 2015.

His challenge is to go bigger and better during 2016 by scoring the weight of runs which will make England's selectors sit up and take note.

Borthwick has already starred for his country at Test level in the Ashes, taking 3/33 with his leg spin against a dominant Australia side.

And despite being more noted for his runs in recent years, he again spent the winter away - this time in New Zealand - working on his spin bowling under the guidance of Jeetan Patel.

Also a mainstay in the slip cordon, Borthwick is a huge asset in all three facets of cricket and was an ever-present in each of the three formats during 2015.
