Arshad handed Durham deal


Durham have rewarded all-rounder Usman Arshad for a fine start to his first-class career with a two-year contract.

The 20-year-old took 16 wickets in five LV= County Championship matches towards the end of the season to help Durham win their third Division One title in six years.

He also showed his batting potential with an innings of 83 off 88 balls in a losing cause against Sussex.

Born in Bradford, Arshad is a former captain of Durham's second XI.
