Scott Borthwick is that rarest of commodities - an English legspinner.

A product of the local league system in Durham, Borthwick was thrown rudely into the limelight when, live on TV, he was carted for five successive sixes by Essex's James Foster to lose a Pro40 game at the back end of the 2009 season.

However, surrounded by a battery of paceman at Durham he enjoyed a good outing with the pink ball against MCC taking eight wickets in the game to set up his 2010 season.

He claimed 35 wickets and a call up for England's one-day international with Ireland during the 2011 season. He gained further recognition in a T20 against West Indies in August and on tour to India in October of that year.

Though sparingly used in the Championship in 2012, he continued to perform effectively in one-day cricket and was named in England's provisional squad for the World Twenty20. He toured Australia with England Lions in early 2013. 

Scott brough his successful stint at Durham to an end when he signed a three-year contract with Surrey in September 2016.
