Scott Borthwick

Durham Cricket were delighted to announce Scott Borthwick had agreed to return back to his home town club in October 2020, signing a long-term deal in the north-east.

 Borthwick started his career as a leg spin bowler and good lower order batsman but has developed into one of the County Championship’s most consistent top order performers.

 A regular scorer of more than 1,000 first-class runs in each season at Durham, Borthwick regularly bats at 3, provides an extra option with the ball and has the safest pair of hands in the game in the slips.

Borthwick made history at the club in 2016 when he became the first Englishman to pass 200 for the club in a championship match at Emirates Riverside.

After progressing through the Durham Academy, Scott was a member of the Durham squad that achieved unprecedented success, winning three County Championships and the one-day trophy. He has also represented England on four occasions across all three formats of the game.

Scott left the club in 2017 to join Surrey and was a key member of their line up in winning the County Championship in 2018, however a wrist injury saw him miss the back end of the season despite being in exceptional form up to that point.

The 2019 season saw Borthwick feature throughout at the Oval, notching two red-ball centuries from anywhere within the top three.

On his return Scott said: “This is a really exciting opportunity. I feel it’s the right time in my life and career to move back home, back to my boyhood club.”
