Durham’s former England captain Paul Collingwood is to retire at the end of the season, 22 years after making his first-class debut.

The 42-year-old all-rounder became the first England skipper to win a global tournament when he led the team to victory at the ICC World T20 in 2010.

He played in 68 Tests, 197 one-day internationals and 36 Twenty20s.

Collingwood made his first-class debut in 1996, won the County Championship in 2013 and the One-Day Cup a year later.

His final game will be at home to Middlesex, starting on 24 September.
