Team news for Championship opener v Hampshire

Durham CCC begin their 2011 LV= County Championship campaign with a trip to The Rose Bowl to face Hampshire. 

Phil Mustard returns to captain the side having recovered from injury (foot) and is included in the squad named by Head Coach Geoff Cook. 

Mark Stoneman, Ian Blackwell and Ben Stokes will each be looking to repeat their batting performances from Durham’s game against the University last week, while Stephen Harmison is set to lead the bowling attack.

Scott Borthwick’s pre season form with the ball has been effective and he’ll be looking to feature should Durham opt to play two spinners.

Durham CCC supporters can follow the action live, as it happens, and post their comments on the game through our Live Match Chat ( from 9.00am each morning.  Highlights of every day’s play will be available the following day at
