Bio

Mark Stoneman is an elegant opening batsman who started his county career with Durham after being selected in England's underage teams.

Stoneman made a half-century in his second first-class match in 2007, before making a composed 101 to help his side beat Sussex later that year.

His second first-class century was four years later but the left-hander hasn't looked back since.

He was eventually rewarded with an England Lions call-up in 2017 after his decision to move from Durham to Surrey.

Since arriving at Surrey he has made over 1000 first-class runs at an average of more than 57 with three centuries.

Stoneman is the twelfth opening batting partner for Alastair Cook since the retirement of Andrew Strauss.
