Mark Stoneman will captain Durham for the first time in their three-day match against the touring Australia A side.

It will be Australia A’s second match in England after they were held to a draw by Derbyshire last week.

The tourists will then take on England Lions in four-day matches at Old Trafford and Edgbaston.
