Profile

James Weighell's initial Championship forays in 2015 could hardly have been more innocuous, and spoke of an early career hampered by back trouble, but the following year he took his maiden five-for against Warwickshire at Edgbaston, returning match figures of 9 for 130, to add to Durham's ranks of promising academy seam bowlers. Weighell's reliance on bowling brisk left-arm predominantly from around the wicket raised a few eyebrows. He hails from Middlesbrough, border country where Durham's raids have become considerably more successful than Yorkshire's.
