Durham Cricket, Director of Cricket, Marcus North said: "This is a big signing for us and it shows our intent to take this club forward. Scott brings with him a wealth of experience across all three formats and provides us with options at the top of the batting order and as a spinner, which are both areas we need to strengthen."
Borthwick will finish the 2020 season with Surrey before joining Durham ahead of pre-season training this winter. (ANI)
