Callum Thorp is a right-arm seamer who was born in Perth but established his professional career in England. After two fruitful seasons with Western Australia, he signed with Durham in 2004, but not as an overseas player - both his parents are British.
Thorp played age-group cricket for his state, being picked for a Western Australia side against an England XI on their 2002-03 tour there and taking 4 for 58 before spending time at the Commonwealth Bank Cricket Academy in 2003, honing his skills as a fast-medium bowler.
He has provided valuable options for Durham when they've needed to cover for the absence of Steve Harmison and later Liam Plunkett with England, but has also emerged as a quality performer in his own right. He produced the bowling performance of his career to help Durham clinch their first ever County Championship title in 2008, taking 7 for 88 to seal a thumping innings-and-71-run victory over Kent at Canterbury.
Thorp enjoyed another solid season in 2009. He was largely sidelined the following year but established himself as consistent member of the Durham attack in 2011 aand 2012, taking more than forty wickets in each season.

The new stand-in captain has the makings of a long-term leader, given his ability to stay ahead of the game
Turning your back on a system that the whole cricketing world wants a discussion on, refusing to discuss it because it is not 100%, is not good enough
The failed gamble of handing Karn Sharma a Test debut despite him having a moderate first-class record means India have to rethink who their spinner will be
After a long time we have seen an Indian team and captain enjoy the challenge of trying to overcome stronger opposition in an overseas Test
