Rushworth earns Durham stay
Chris Rushworth has been rewarded for his breakthrough season at Durham with a two-year contract extension.
The Sunderland-born seamer made a big impression this summer, claiming 38 LV= County Championship wickets at an average of 16 together with 15 Clydesdale Bank 40 scalps in just seven appearances.
Rushworth said: “2012 was a tough season for the club but on a personal level I was delighted to take 38 championship wickets, and felt for the first time that I’d really established myself in the first team.
“I’m hoping to push on to the next level in 2013, a huge year for the club. Hopefully, we can perform to the levels we know we can and bring some silverware back to the Emirates Durham ICG.”
