Date of birth - 9 January 1993 Bradford, Yorkshire
Durham First Class Debut - August 2013 v Surrey (home)

Usman Arshad’s opportunities in the First XI continue to come in the limited-overs formats but he has shown he is more than capable when handed a chance in the first-class arena.

The 24-year-old was trusted with the ‘death’ overs in T20 cricket but still managed 12 wickets as the Jets reached the showpiece final at Edgbaston.

He also displayed his prowess with the bat by hitting 43 against the Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley, but perhaps saved his biggest hits for the reverse County Championship match.

A career-best knock of 85 came in a match-saving partnership alongside Keaton Jennings but the pressure did not stop Arshad from launching a number of huge sixes into the stands at Emirates Riverside.

But that came in one of only two first-class appearances during 2016, something the all-rounder will be looking to improve upon in the upcoming season after featuring as a key member of the 2013 title-winning side.
