One of the best ever

Warwickshire recruited one of county cricket’s best and most respected seamers at the end of the 2022 season with the signing of Chris Rushworth from Durham, for whom is he the all-time leading wicket-taker.

Rushworth took his 600th first-class wicket in 2022 and is determined to add plenty more as he embraces the new challenge of a two-year contract at Edgbaston.

“My body still feels strong, I still want to take wickets and win games of cricket and ultimately, I want to win trophies and that’s one of the reasons I joined the Bears. Hopefully I can help bring some success to Edgbaston.”

Bears Head Coach Mark Robinson is excited to add such proven quality to his bowling armoury. “Rushy is hungry to succeed and will give us some real quality and experience,” he said.

“He’s a wicket taker, make no mistake. He has over 600 first-class wickets to his name and he has told me he wants to come because he wants to win another County Championship before he retires which is exactly the language you want to hear.”

Rushworth has been described by Durham Cricket Chairman Sir Ian Botham as “one of the best seam bowlers” English cricket has ever seen.
