764 runs at 35 in the Championship rounded off a consistent summer for Scott Borthwick in red ball cricket.
In his second season since returning to the club from Surrey, Scott continued to captain Durham in both the County Championship and One-Day Cup demonstrating his strong leadership skills on the field.
Scott went past 50 on 7 occasions coming close to scoring centuries on two occasions, his first being against Worcestershire.
Borthwick seemed destined to reach three figures against Worcestershire, but he fell agonisingly short when he was pinned lbw for 96 by Josh Baker attempting a sweep.
He played extremely well to reach 90 against Glamorgan and was on the verge of his first ton of the campaign, as Borthwick and Lees shared a solid partnership of 138.
89 (Worcestershire), 82 (Sussex), 60 (Middlesex) and 55 (Middlesex) were some of Borthwick’s key innings from the summer – as he looked to reach his second century since returning to Durham.
His top score in the Royal London Cup was against Somerset with 86, Borthwick’s fluent fifty occupied just 42 deliveries as Durham laid the foundation for a challenging score, reaching 124 for one at the halfway point of their innings.
Having now completed two summers back in the north east, Scott will now be hoping to build on a consistent 2022 campaign as Durham look for success in 2023.
