Durham are county champions! Not just that, but the manner in which they won is compelling:
Durham's route to the title has been due to their excellent team
spirit, with various people stepping forward to take responsibility and
few stand-out performers. Only Michael di Venuto, and he only just,
passed 1,000 runs in the Championship and only three batsmen who played
more than half the fixtures finished with an average above 22. In
bowling, they relied on Mark Davies, Callum Thorp and especially
Stephen Harmison for most of their wickets but their rotation system
brought forth other wicket-takers. They claimed fewer batting points
than four of the eight teams below them and fewer bowling points than
five others. But most importantly they won more games than anyone else.
