Graham Gooch, the Test selector and former England and Essex captain, has joined Durham as a consultant and batting coach for next season. Gooch will join the county for pre-season training in early April.

"Helping Durham to develop its team and local talent to be more successful fits in with the aim of improving the England team," Gooch said. "The success achieved at Essex was based on good youth development policies and I am sure that is the way forward for Durham."
