Full Name: Mark Stoneman
Born: June 26 1987, Newcastle upon Tyne, Northumberland

Batting Style: Left-hand bat
A left-handed top-order batsman, Stoneman has established himself as a valuable member of Durham's squad. In 2011 he struck 418 LV= County Championship runs in five matches at an average of 52.25, including a career-best 128 against Sussex. That secured a regular place the following season and, while his returns in first-class cricket were poor, Stoneman was electrifying in the Clydesdale Bank 40, scoring 558 runs at an average just shy of 70 with the aid of an unbeaten 136 against Scotland.
