  Last winter Durham travelled to Dubai for a training camp which included pre-season matches of various formats. However, they then failed to win a County Championship match until 27 July, losing five of their first 10 games.After a difficult start last season, Durham ended their Championship campaign strongly by winning five of their last six games.We haven't had a great deal of outside practice but pre-season is far from an exact science," he continued.The bowlers are a settled unit and although we lack a little experience at the top of the batting order we have plenty further down.Success abroad doesn't necessarily translate to success at home - last year we were in sunny Dubai and it was pouring it down here.Paul Collingwood is fit and available after his hand injury which is a huge boost of confidence for the group. With a little luck we'll be very competitive in every game we play.This last week the ground has dried out and we've managed to train well outdoors. All in all, we're just about ready to go.
