David Bedingham

David Bedingham joined Durham for the summer of 2020 and instantly proved to be a valuable member of the Durham Cricket squad, in both formats.

Having initially joined the club on a one-year deal, his form through the 2020 season saw him sign a new deal keeping him at the club until at least the end of the 2022 season.

Although the South African was known for his hard-hitting white ball performances back home for the Titans, it was in the Bob Willis Trophy where Bedingham really shone through.

The 26-year-old scored 253 runs in Durham’s red ball campaign at an average of 31.62, with a highest score of 96, as he fell just short of his maiden First-Class Durham century against Leicestershire.

He found an important batting partner in Alex Lees and the pair continued to produce partnerships throughout the season, this included a 136 third wicket partnership against Yorkshire in the opening game of the season.

Bedingham found it harder to score consistently in the T20 Blast competition compared to his red ball game. Three games into the tournament he was handed the gloves and pulled off an unbelievable run out against Leicestershire to dismiss Colin Ackermann.

The South African will now be looking forward to another season in the north east when Durham members can hopefully see him in action for the first time in all three formats.
