Durham Squad Announced

Durham travel to Derbyshire for a floodlit Friends Provident Trophy match on Friday 2nd May, which starts at the earlier time of 1.30pm to allow for additional playing time should sun stop play.

Paul Collingwood rejoins the Durham squad after being released to play by the ECB for these three one day matches and for Durham’s LV County Championship match against Lancashire (7 – 10 May).  Bowler Liam Plunkett is missing from the squad due to a side injury which could see him unavailable for selection for up to six weeks.
