Parkinson will be available for Durham’s next fixture, against Sussex at Chester-le-Street, as the Division Two leaders look to secure their return to the Championship top flight.
It will be Parkinson’s second stint with Durham this season, having claimed 11 wickets at 41.00 in five appearances earlier this summer, including a best of 3 for 59 against Gloucestershire in July.
He also played one match for Lancashire in the opening round of the Championship in April, when he claimed 5 for 120 in the second innings against Surrey, his sixth five-wicket haul in first-class cricket.
To date, his solitary Test appearance came as a concussion substitute against New Zealand at Lord’s in June 2022. After replacing Jack Leach midway through the opening day of the game, Parkinson claimed his only Test wicket, that of Tim Southee, with his final ball of the match.
He has also played in 11 white-ball matches for England, between 2019 and 2022, five ODIs and six T20Is.
