County - Surrey & England
Date of Birth - 19 April 1990
Scott Borthwick’s talent was honed on the cricket fields of the North East Premier League. His professional career began as a leg spin bowler for Durham in 2009.
Building on his Durham performances, Scott made his England debut in the final Ashes test of the 2013-14 series against Australia in Sydney.
On his return, Scott’s batting potential was realised, when he scored 1000 runs in three straight seasons (2014-2016) for Durham.
For the start of the 2017 season, Scott signed for Surrey. Batting at the top of the order, he also brought the added dimension of leg-spin bowling to the team.
In 2018, Scott’s move to the Kia Oval was vindicated, when helping Surrey lift their first county championship since 2002.
