Profile

Chris Rushworth was released by Durham in 2006, after which he took a series of jobs, selling satellite dishes and answering phones in a call centre. Yet he never lost the belief that he could play first-class cricket. Seven years later, that belief helped Durham win the Championship in 2013 and, if most attention centred upon the tenacious talent of Graham Onions, Rushworth was an excellent foil, missing only one Championship game and taking 54 wickets at 22.25 runs apiece with his bustling fast-medium.
