Latham to lead Durham in county one-day­ers

The Timaru Herald - - FASHION&BEAUTY -

Black Caps bats­man Tom Latham will get an­other taste of cap­taincy when lead­ing Durham in Eng­land’s do­mes­tic 50-over com­pe­ti­tion this year.

Latham skip­pered New Zealand dur­ing their one-day in­ter­na­tional tri-se­ries against Ire­land and Bangladesh last year in Ire­land and was act­ing ODI cap­tain against the West Indies in De­cem­ber when Kane Wil­liamson and Tim Southee were be­ing rested.

Durham con­firmed yes­ter­day that Latham would re-join them dur­ing their 2018 sea­son while also an­nounc­ing the sign­ing of South African opener Ai­den Markram.

The 25-year-old Cantabrian left­hander re­turns to Durham af­ter scor­ing 382 runs at an av­er­age of 63.67 in the County Cham­pi­onship last year. He will cap­tain the side in Eng­land’s One-Day Cup.

Latham, who is also New Zealand’s wick­et­keeper in ODIs, found form with the bat again with his knock of 79 dur­ing the thrilling three-wicket win over Eng­land in Sun­day’s ODI in Hamil­ton.
