Batting wicket-keeper Chris Benjamin has joined Durham for the remaining two fixtures of the LV= Insurance County Championship campaign.

The 23-year-old has played 10 first-class matches to date, scoring 419 runs with one century.

Paul Farbrace, Director of Cricket said: “Chris’ move to Durham will allow him to get valuable game time as the season comes to a close. He is highly thought of at Warwickshire and the experience he’ll gain as a wicket-keeper will stand him in good stead ahead for next year.”
