roker1973

im off lads catch yeers at our next hammering sick ov this shower, taras

keenasmustard

I know. He's always at the Riverside when Lancs play.

chrissafc

he was up for the 4 dayer the other week

via SMS

Rushy bowled one double figure over in two games and gets dropped, what do these bowlers have to go for to lose their place?

keenasmustard

I've seen the Lancs fan tonight who wears that hat covered in red roses.

via SMS

Roker you are dead right too much dead wood i am worried about status in lvcc do not know how club will pull this season around someone give me hope

chrissafc

aye luke i know who you mean, he likes his random photos, proper durham diehard that bloke

roker1973

think we have 11 liz hurleys oot there

keenasmustard

Dont want Shane Warne at the club. Wouldnt mind Liz Hurley though.

Lancs 100

Lancashire pass the hundred mark - 104-1 after 11.2 overs.

9:22pm

safcluke

just spotted a durham regular on the tele. Always seems to get his photo taken with the umpires or the video umpire at international games.

chrissafc

we dont have shane warne at the club, i doubt we ever will

roker1973

hardley shane warne though chris. anyway we need a clean out from top too bottom

chrissafc

maybe so but i think he's one of the better ones at the club for this level of the game.

via SMS

I think my prediction of 15overs was out by a bit re think now 13overs

Tynevalleyblackcat

It has to be said, but this is a massacre. We are not competitive at all and that's the worst part.

roker1973

still been here too long like other has beens at club,

Croft 50

Fifty for Croft as Lancashire reach 94-1 after 10.3 overs.

9:19pm

chrissafc

hes also been injured this season, first game back last week in the first team

safcluke

Dom Cork is desperate for us to get beat.

chrissafc

because he's on a 1 day contract. i believe he plays for consett (someone correct me if i'm wrong). he's useful at this level of the game.

Latest

Mid way through the Lancashire innings and they are 88-1...

9:17pm

roker1973

he has hardley bowled this year though

chrissafc

His economy rate last season was 7.44 in the t20

Response to keenasmustard

Nope, not at all, first I've heard of it - trying to keep these pages about the games - I use the link to send to fans that want to follow the action.

9:15pm

via SMS

Frank- i hope your correct. But i think your wrong the club is in turmoil.

chrissafc

also took 9 catches in the 2011 T20

roker1973

leg spinners are known too give runs away in tipperly runs cricket, we just have no other spinner

Bowling change

Gareth Breese comes on for the 10th over - Lancs 79-1...

9:13pm

chrissafc

breese took 13 wickets last season in the t20 and averaged 21 with the bat. that's very useful in my opinion

roker1973

skipper should be shot bowling borthwick now

via SMS

They will destroy borthwick why bother bowling him

mak

roker you only win with good team spirit too

Frankjw

Anon/sms - we can manage without you, and we will get back where we belong with a bit of support and encouragement

chrissafc

we don't have any class t20 players though. maybe gibbs but he's only here for a few games

Update

Lancs 62-1 after 8 overs...Croft 45* and Smith 7*. On comes Scott Borthwick!

9:07pm

chrissafc

gareth breese is a useful 1 day cricketer.

Mark

I just think we have not had a great deal of luck-especially in the CC, we should have beaten Lancs and almost certainly would have beaten Warwickshire in the last CC home game had it not rained.

chrissafc

yes i know i said spinner, hence why i suggested breese

safcluke

Just give the ball to Mustard or Gibbs.

via SMS

Agree do nor destroy borthwick do not bowl him we've lost any way

roker1973

chris you said spinner,

Mark

Absolutely not chris, no one is happy right now.

chrissafc

breese?

chrissafc

but.... you cant expect everyone to be happy at the moment.

roker1973

we have only got borthwick and the total we got wasnt enough, for him too bowl

chrissafc

i'll support as much as i can. going to a big effort to get up to edinburgh for the cb40 game. also hoping to get down to lancs for the lvcc game which i believe will be a crucial game.

via SMS

Who is running this club i cannot believe what i am watching

Tynevalleyblackcat

Does not look any better than it sounds Chris

chrissafc

have we not thought about giving a spin bowler a go, seems keedy got wickets?

Mark

One thing I would say and I hope it doesn't sound self-righteous! is we need to support the players, criticism fully justified but I'm sure they are doing their best.

via SMS

The faster we bowl the harder they hit it.

chrissafc

doesnt sound good tonight, not watching on sky, so just going by comments. got itv on

roker1973

turd cricket chris

Bowling change

A bowling change for the Dynamos, on comes Ben Stokes - Lancs 53-1 after 6 overs.

9:00pm

chrissafc

absolute turd weather forecast for wednesday

via SMS

Someone hoy the towel in please its a shambles

chrissafc

thanks :)

Response to chrissafc

Never!

8:57pm

roker1973

peter reid cant bowl he got injured last night playing for england

Stan Drop

They couldn't possibly manage without you Yvette!

chrissafc

yvette - just give us lot the password, we'll look after lmc :)

t20 v Leics - 6 July

Just to give you advance notice - there will be no LMC service on 6 July for the Dynamos match against Leicestershire Foxes at Grace Road. Our ODI between England and Australia is on 7 July and I am required at Emirates Durham ICG.

8:56pm

keenasmustard

Get Peter Reid on to bowl.

chrissafc

strictly kosher is back. no pork chops on this show

via SMS

Onions has just chucked the game away

Stan Drop

Oh dear! 23 off Bunnys over.

Tynevalleyblackcat

13% of the total runs needed in 3 balls!!

roker1973

if blackie scores runs he does a job

Frankjw

Not a good over this one

Latest

Sorry that last post was ambitous! Lancs 39-1 after 4.4 overs.

8:54pm

via SMS

Start the car

keenasmustard

If we could hypnotize Blackie into thinking the ball is a pork pie we'd see some athletic fielding from him.

chrissafc

@ Mark - you're warm with your impression

Mark

Or Northern Echo. He didn't explicitly say Blackie wasn't playing for fitness reasons so I may be wrong but that's the impression I got.

chrissafc

31-4?

Mark

If Blackie was playing who would we leave out? When the CB40 games started Geoff hinted that Blackie wasn't playing because we wanted an athletic fielding side. His comments were in either The Journal.

keenasmustard

Don't know but we bent over backwards to keep him when last season he looked like he was going to leave.

via SMS

Blackwell hasn't played any club cricket yet, he was due to make his debut for Washington on Sunday but the weather intervened

safcluke

could be, could be. But wasn't he playing club cricket when he was supposedly injured?

chrissafc

@keenasmustard - he wasnt injured at the start of the season

keenasmustard

Easing his way back after injury?

safcluke

Chris - what cricketing reasons could there be for Blackwell to be playing second XI cricket when he's arguably our BEST OD player?

via SMS

Alluding- nice word that

chrissafc

from what i am told it's purely cricketing reasons. anyway back to the game......

via SMS

Brath is fit and well and just wants to play cricket, apart from this weeks two's there's not much else.

Update

Dynamos 17-1 after 2.5 overs, Croft 4* and Smith 4*.

8:46pm

chrissafc

likewise mark, he's a nice lad.

Mark

I saw Brathwaite at the ground a few weeks ago during a CC game-he looked fine and seemed happy.

chrissafc

can't see that been the case.

chrissafc

in other news, strictly kosher is on after corra

via SMS

Brath played for Sunderland on Saturday, bowled 3 overs, ten wides and two wkts.

safcluke

"45's"

chrissafc

he's brilliant bumble

safcluke

Bumble is great.

via SMS

Yvete supporters are worried at what is happening we look kippered in all format of the game

safcluke

Is Brathwaite still here? He doesn't even seem to be playing second xi cricket.

Lancs one down!

And the first wicket goes! Myburgh catches Moore off Claydon for 8. Lancs 13-1 after 1.2 overs.

8:41pm

chrissafc

well done mitch

chrissafc

you dont rest a player for the county championship then play him in a 1 dayer the same day as a first team T20 game.

safcluke

well done Mitch

roker1973

there are kiss ar-ses and non kiss ar-ses in all work places ?

Update

Lancashire 7-0 after the first over - Mitchell Claydon takes the ball at the opposite end.

8:39pm

chrissafc

as i said last week, the players are honest and approachable. gutted i cant be at the next Q&A though.

Latest

Questions/observations outside this game are best saved for our Members Q and A sessions - the next one is Friday 27 July.

8:38pm

keenasmustard

Isn't he just coming back from injury though?

chrissafc

he's wasted playing at brandon for the 2ndxi.

safcluke

yet he's better of wasting his time playing against northants second xi. hmm.....

roker1973

blackie is a class limited overs player and has too play in this team

chrissafc

blackwell played 1 day cricket today yet is "rested" for the first team. doesn't take a genius to work it out...

via SMS

Sorry to say this but i think poor ben stoles needs dropped he looks like the confidence has gone and his hands are kippered

safcluke

If they are rested, why are they playing second xi cricket?

chrissafc

he's one of our better 1 day performers, he should be in the team. nobody will disagree with that.

Lancashire innings begins

The Lancashire innings begins...Graham Onions will bowl the first over.

8:36pm

chrissafc

maybe so but I know that isn't the case with blackwell.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Brandonia says 'Shambolic' and if we are honest, that pretty much sums up our whole season so far. I know this is where the money is, but I am only really interested in retaining our position in Div One of the proper stuff.

t20 squad

There are a number of players that have been excluded from the t20 squad and rested for Championship cricket - we have a lot of work to do there when it resumes!

8:35pm

roker1973

too many hplayers past there sell by date in our squat from batting too bowling, we need sum young blood .

mak

i hope im proved wrong i always want us to win but been let down to much recently

chrissafc

hope we win but people at the club need to swallow their pride/opinion about blackwell and get him back in the 1 day cricket. shocking it really is.

via SMS

Come on yvete what do you expect that performance was* ** poor i feel sorry for the bowlers

brandonia

I hope they do but this should be a cake walk for Lancs.

chrissafc

haway durham

Come on LMC!

Dear me...I really hope they prove you all wrong LMC'ers..So much negativity!

8:28pm

via SMS

Keenasmustard you are telling the truth coach and management must take a long look at themselves

roker1973

our lass is happy shes from lanks best say nowt too me

keenasmustard

It's really bright sunshine yet the floodlights are on. Npower must be rubbing their hands.

chrissafc

they need to swallow their pride/differences and get blackwell back in this 1 day stuff

via SMS

15 overs if we are lucky

keenasmustard

Sack the entire playing and coaching staff.

brandonia

Shambolic.

Dynamos post 121

Onions caught by Horton off Procter for 7. Dynamos post 121...back shortly!

8:22pm

chrissafc

brandonia

Were you at Brandon today chris?

One over remains

Dynamos 120-9 with an over left...

8:21pm

chrissafc

yeah he was as i said earlier it sums up what i've been saying. i've said time and time on here i will be amazed if we see him in 1 day stuff for the 1st team. he's wasted playing 1 day stuff for the 2nd xi

mak

if its that easy for onions the lancs batsmen will get these in 12

Six!

Six for Onions!

8:20pm

keenasmustard

Blackie was in the 2nds today.

brandonia

Could dee with five more of them!

via SMS

Total and utter embarrassment they should all be embarrassed by this performance and on television

chrissafc

it's an absolute disgrace blackwell isn't in this team mind.

Mark

6 from Bunny!

keenasmustard

Village. Totally Village.

chrissafc

dear me

brandonia

Absolute pastie.

Nine down..

Keedy is on a hat-trick here after catching Claydon off his own delivery. Dynamos 113-9. Graham Onions is the last man in.

8:16pm

mak

another impossible target to defend

keenasmustard

Sky should have put an 18 certificate on this programme.

brandonia

Always look on the bright side of life...... How apt.

Wicket...

Plunkett is bowled by Keedy - The Dynamos are 113-8 after 17.4 overs.

8:15pm

brandonia

What part of Lancashire is Horton from?!

brandonia

Aye, thats reet. I remember now. What game is he expected back?

After 17 overs...

Three overs left, we're 110-7...Bothwick and Plunkett at the crease...go for it!

8:13pm

Response to Brandonia

In the last championship game he fractured his second metacarpel - he was due to miss 4-5 weeks.

8:12pm

brandonia

Whats up with Colly?

Dynamos seven down

Breese is caught by Croft off Arafat for 33 off 18 balls. Dynamos 109-7 after 16.3 overs. Borthwick is next in.

brandonia

Don't mind that though. Some hitters to come.

8:08pm

Dynamos 100

Hundred up for the Dynamos as Muchy (17*) and Breesy (29*) up the momentum!

8:07pm

safcluke

"shameless"

brandonia

Nice bit of craft gets us up to that 150 like... Breese is just the lad to work it around n arl.

Mark

Gareth!

brandonia

150 wins it for us. I'd use stronger words than boring like. It's like chalk and cheese with him an Bumble.

safcluke

Yvette - can you nip into the commentary box and tell Charles Colville he is very boring.

keenasmustard

Here's Proctor with that strange action.

via SMS

Bet he never bought the ticket

brandonia

Great tekkers that Muchy. Just what the doctor ordered.

via SMS

Chrissafc the 100 for Di Venuto - 61 balls 13x4 and four sixes. He ended on 156 not out off 77 balls

After 15 overs

keenasmustard

Diva got a massive score for the 2nd XI today.

Four!

Four to Breese! Dynamos 81-5, Breese 13* and Muchall 9*.

7:58pm

Mark

These t20 games are always a bit of a lottery, luck plays a big part. If we get a decent total there's no reason why we can't defend it.

via SMS

Chrissafc mdv hit over 150 runs in 77 balls today. Great to see him back

via SMS

Chrissafc I agree but I'm just commenting on the blackwell situation. Criminal he isn't playing 1 day stuff. Can't see it changing. He's a great 1 day player

LMC'ers

Positivity doesn't cost anything...we still have the Lancashire innings to come and we've skittled them before!

7:56pm

roker1973

have faith breese and muchall will win this for us they are quality

via SMS

There needs to be a serious long look at what is going on at durham i am worried we will disapear without a trace

brandonia

Could've done with Diva!!

Frankjw

Lancs are capable of worse batting than us

keenasmustard

Lets all start talking about how we should never have let Mark Davies go.

mak

to chris think the problem is more than blackwell

via SMS

Chrissafc hope we win but I think the blackwell situation is shocking. Dig in lads

brandonia

Start the car.

even bumble has given up on us

Mid way

Mid way through our innings now, Dynamos 57-4, Myburgh 19* and Muchall 1*.

7:47pm

Come on LMC!

Lets save any doom and gloom until at least 10 overs into Lancs innings - you never know how its going to go!

7:46pm

Mark

Great ball from Keedy, not a lot Benks could have done.

via SMS

But were bad in all forms of the game this is embarrassing

Will we even last the 20 overs?

Dynamos four down...

Benks is bowled by Keedy for 2. Dynamos 53-4 after 9.2 overs. Muchall joins Myburgh (17*)

7:45pm

good players that seem to have no confidence smells of too much dressing room unrest

brandonia

In fairness we've never been THAT good at T20 anyroad.

via SMS

Can someone please explain how this team that was so good has become this bad it is painful to watch

roker1973

Ten minutes to the start here at Old Trafford!

6:59pm

Mark

Procter caused all sorts of problems in the CC game. Hopefully that was just a fluke.

safcluke

2 spinners and a "mystery" action in Procter.

Lancashire

Lancs: Smith, Moore, Horton, Brown, Croft, Arafat, Procter, Cross, Chapple, Parry, Keedy

6:43pm

raydetmold

Good evening everybody , we need a big total tonight Lancs chased down 180 to beat Leics last week

safcluke

Apart from GO of course.

Dynamos

Dynamos: Mustard, Gibbs, Stokes, Myburgh, Benkenstein, Muchall, Borthwick, Breese, Plunkett, Claydon, Onions

6:41pm

safcluke

Yvette - noticed Harrison wasn't playing for the seconds? Not injured is he? He's been our best bowler this season in lvcc. imo.

via SMS

Brandonia: Nice one, are you down there tomorrow Yvette?

Toss result

Durham Dynamos win the toss and will bat first!

6:39pm

Response to Brandonia

I would imagine the squad will be similar - we'll confirm the team at the toss tomorrow.

6:38pm

brandonia

Aye, I thought it was canny like. Was positive he got two wickets but I was too busy cracking on with the scorer Richie. Cracking lad. Has anyone off here been to Bradon today? Or plan to go to any of the 3 Day game? Will the same squad be used for that Yvette? Strong lineup like. Theres been some big names played there this week. Andrew Pratt, Steve Chapman and ME on Saturday!! Now this lot from Durham (Harmy, Diva, Rocky, Blackie, Brathwaite). Niall O'Brien for Northants too!

Mark

He's probably being careful not to push too hard too early, would be disastrous if he got injured before 2nd half of CC season. Great that he's helping the younger bowlers.

2XI update

2XI: Northants post 128-7 handing Durham the win! Three wickets for Coughlin and one each for Wood, Thorp, Harmison and Blackwell.

6:29pm

via SMS

lers though and looked as if he was giving some advice which I thought was great.

via SMS

Brandonia: He took a couple of wickets with the new ball but didn't look as if he was putting too much into it. He was talking to some of the younger bow

Mark

Did Harmy bowl well?

via SMS

g forward to the 3 Day game tomorrow!

via SMS

Brandonia: Just finished at Brandon. Comfortable win for Durham. Wood looked impressive bowling and Rocky took a great diving catch in the covers. Lookin

Mark

Not a bad comeback innings by Diva. Great man.

2XI update

2XI update: A delayed start to the one day v Northants at Brandon but we still scored pretty high thanks to 156* from Di Venuto..Durham posted 238-4 off their 25 overs. Northants currently 70-7.

5:46pm

Mark

Sun, what's that?! Looks to have been a special innings from Diva in the second X1 game today!

Lightning v Dynamos

The sun is shining at Old Trafford as we arrive! Play is set to start at 7.10pm.
