5:45pm

Ridgeley

roker1973

Ridgeley

Brando whats sailor jerry and where can i get me mits on some?

bryn

whats that all about i asks you?

bryn

whats that all about i asks you?

via SMS

Brandonia: All the cool kids are drinking Sailor Jerry at the minute bryn!

Mark

It might be for the best if there's no more play today-not enough time to score a lot of runs but plenty of time to lose a few wickets. Be better if we can start again in the morning.

dalesgirl

I love pear cider. In fact I love any cider

Response to safcluke

Yes, eight of them.

5:29pm

bryn

...and i dont actually like it!

bryn

the worcester badge must have been sending me subliminal messages as im hankering after a pear cider!

safcluke

Yvette - did Richardson manage to face a ball?

Latest

It's raining again at New Road so the re-start has been delayed.

5:23pm

safcluke

Absolute fantastic batsman. Awesome to watch

dalesgirl

Thats so sad Boucher retiring. What a way to have to go. It looked a horrific injury

Update

Providing the weather hold we're trying to get a 5.30pm re-start. There will be 19 overs remaining today.

5:14pm

roker1973

mark boutcher retires from cricket great cricketer

tomb

What a nightmare we've had with the weather, including the back end of last season we can hardly get a proper game in. Almost every match I book off work is washed out including three wet ones at the end of last season. Sure England don't have this much bad luck with the weather in their test series, otherwise there wouldnt be any whitewashes, perhaps there should be an option of a 5th day for lost days due to rain.

roker1973

just got in lads, so no cricket again, we might get a draw out ov this game lol

Latest

And the next inspection will be at 5.10pm...

4:51pm

keenasmustard

Looks like that might be it for the day.

Update

More rain and it's now pretty dark...

4:30pm

via SMS

Brandonia: Is it raining?

keenasmustard

Well I enjoyed my day on Saturday. Ordered tickets the week before and was surprised to get in the Don Robson which had sold out weeks ago. £60 is a bit much in the recession but if you want it you're going to pay for it.

chrissafc

£60 in temp seats seems a bit odd when i got front row upper county durham for £55

salmon

Just got home,catching up on chat.I paid £60.00 last Sat.in temporary seats,awful, plus still waiting for my car parking ticket (£7 ) to arrive

Latest

There will be another inspection at New Road at 4.30pm.

4:08pm

Ridgeley

Am going to have a chippy tea from esh winning chippy get in

No news

No further news at the minute...still light rain falling..

3:50pm

IAIN6W

Is that it for the day??

via SMS

into the Sauce men tomorrow afternoon-ish.

via SMS

Brandonia: Afternoon all. Must say I'm over the moon the proper cricket is back. Had my feet up today whilst the batsmen do their bit. Hope to get stuck

Update

And the heavens open...well, that didn't last long!

3:28pm

2XI update

2XI: The same can't be said for the seconds whose match at Weetwood has been abandoned.

3:27pm

We're back!

I'm not sure what announcement I was listening to earlier, but, you'll be happpy hear that we're back on!

3:26pm

BrianT

I thought the Chuckle Brothers were brilliant last year. Fair reporting as we outplayed them. Comparing Adrian Shankar (remember him?) with George Weah's cousin. I don't know what you lad's want,

News

Hoping to get back on at 4pm - we'll have lost 7 overs.

3:10pm

tomb

Just staring at the keyboard to work out how i typed that, LOL.

Ridgeley

Haha classic Tomb :D

tomb

Her ends! I meant our hands!

Rain...

The rain arrives...and we're off...

2:54pm

tomb

The forecast is fairly poor, just like it is here. I wouldnt say must win as the weather is out of her ends but we cant afford to lose, a draw with bonus points would be a reasonable return if we can't win it.

IAIN6W

Good luck to Richardson.

safcluke

Richardson 100!! haway bonny lad

chrissafc

http://www.bbc.co.uk/weather/2633563

Ridgeley

Howay Durham we need to raise our game here..must win game anyone know the weather forecast down there for next few days?

chrissafc

Didnt realise they were £65 mind.

Durham 125-4

Durham 125-4 after Stokes is bowled by Shantry for 22. Michael Richardson joins Benkenstein (14*).

2:45pm

Mackem_Dave

Exactly mid wicket, block 38 in the red seats.

chrissafc

BrianT mentioned these 2 earlier. Ice cream and pigeons were a topic of conversation last season

safcluke

Worcester lads were talking about clouds and goats last season. About as exciting as a tin of rice pudding.

IAIN6W

Where is Martin Emerson today!! Is it just me,but I feel I'm listening to the Chuckle Brothers.Slowly giving up the will to live!

chrissafc

where were you sat for £65 on saturday?

chrissafc

likewise, was hot on saturday.

tomb

My neck is still brunt Luke

safcluke

burnt

safcluke

still sunbrunt!

Durham 100

Hundred up for Durham...think the scoreboard I'm looking at is stuck...thought we'd been on 94 a while!

2:25pm

tomb

50 for us in front of the new scoreboard, canny seats,gorgeous weather. 4 pounds a pint like....

Update

Durham 94-3 in the 33rd over, Stokes 5* and Benkenstein 0*

2:24pm

safcluke

£55 for us on sat, upper county durham stand front row.

tomb

All these grounds paying for developments costing a fortune and yet the prediction is that Test Cricket is falling in importance, ashes aside. I hope we're not going to see counties going bankrupt chasing the dream ,one ashes match every 8 years and a few one dayers. Hampshire and Cardiff vying for tests also these days.

Mackem_Dave

safcluke

I'd rather pay £400 a day than sit in them crap seats.

tomb

Sitting in temporry seats isnt great, usually no leg room and hard to get in and out of seats plus further from the main facilities. I think the money has ran out or things have cost more than we expected sp there has been a problem with the development.

chrissafc

our ground has just finished some development in between the media centre and don robson stand

chrissafc

£65 on saturday? assuming you mean the ODI ticket prices, i paid £55 which i thought was the highest price ticket? apologies if you mean for next year

Mackem_Dave

All of the other test grounds are being developed. I heard rumours that it is only 50:50 that the ashes test will go ahead at Durham due to the lack of capacity.

safcluke

Is it only £65 in the crap seats for Ashes?

chrissafc

the ashes is a year away

2XI

The 2XI have been braving the rain all morning but it's finally got too heavy! They are 150-4 as they leave the field.

2:17pm

Mackem_Dave

tomb

We've had grey, grey and more grey, with a healthy dose of rain.

Response to tomb

There's a bit of blue Sky here - some grey clouds, but we're Ok at the minute. Apparently there were forecasts of rain for 3pm but they've been so wrong the last few weeks I'm ignoring them!

2:14pm

tomb

Sounds like he's been lucky to survive thst long? Hows the weather looking Yvette or anyone down there, its been grim all day near Durham.

Durham 94-3

Muchall is caught by Mitchell off Shantry for 25. Durham 94-3 after 31 overs.

2:10pm

tomb

It sounds like a horrible injury

safcluke

You lot really need to see the video of Boucher sledging one of the Zimbabwe batsman, its absolutely great,

chrissafc

he's just announced his retirement Brian. and yes i remember those commentators from last season. they were on about ice cream and pigeons on the last day

safcluke

AD De Villiers will probably keep wicket for the tour then.

BrianT

Boucher has retired from tour after being hit in the eye by a bail. He hasn't retired from cricket as far as I am aware. Nice to hear the radio pair again. By far the most entertaining in my opinion.

Durham 89-2

Durham 89-2 after Stoneman is caught by Solanki off Richardson for 38. Stokes joins Muchall (25*)

1:58pm

chrissafc

keep this going durham

chrissafc

boucher had 555 test dismissals. some going that

chrissafc

(rubbish that blackwell lad, kick him out the 2nds) - joking by the way

2XI update

2XI: To clarify this is a red ball friendly over two days. Durham 119-4 after Blackwell is out.

1:50pm

tomb

This was one of the main discussion points at the last forum. Along with the hotel being delayed or not happening at all.

chrissafc

just having the option to be able to host them would be nice for the club, especially the international ones

safcluke

Sky pick cb40 day nighters, so Durham cant control that. We last played one of them in August 2009 v Somerset.

chrissafc

*attended

chrissafc

day/night games would be better attender = more money, more visitors to the area = win win

chrissafc

potential to bring a lot more income into the area.

chrissafc

it's a shame about the floodlights, but i guess you can't argue with the residents near the ground.

safcluke

Huge coup for England.

safcluke

Boucher retired? Wow.

chrissafc

this jennings is some player mind.

We're back!

Back on after lunch - Durham 72-1...2XI: Durham 115-3 after Jennings (41*) and Singh (58*) are retired to give the others a go!

1:43pm

tomb

No chance of floodlights, the residents have refused (according to David Harker)as chrissafc says

chrissafc

i think the floodlights is a residents issue (i think)

Ed Syers

I think we could do a lot worse than get a new stand up before he ashes, but for now the temporary ones do the job. Top of my to-do list would be floodlights though.

tomb

I think he might mean the temporary stands there instead of that part being completed, I dont know, but the ground generally looks excellent. Very sad for Boucher, sounds serious.

chrissafc

South Africa wicketkeeper Mark Boucher retires from international cricket after sustaining an eye injury during the tour of England

chrissafc

just readone on of mackem dave's comments from earlier "Don't get me started on the standard of the Riverside a year before the Ashes" - just me who thought the ground looked in great nick on saturday?

tomb

Its a shame, that there couldnt have ben a farewell match for Diva (like there was for Killer)so the fans could show their appreciation for him, or will he play in the PRO 40?

IAIN6W

Great to see the return of the 4 day stuff.Good start. Agree with all the comments about Divo. Wish him and his family well.Hope Harmy comes back firing on all cylinders,would be sad to see his career finish with a whimper.

chrissafc

delighted for richardson, long overdue call up. just hope he does himself a big favour and has a good game

tomb

Safcluke, I meant a month for other teams, 2nds, not first team, sorry

tomb

He's been playing cricket for weeks man, maybe a month! These things happen, lets hope we can keep the good start going, rain is forecast though!

safcluke

But can we just back Richardson instead of the players who aren't here?

safcluke

Plenty rumours why Blackwell isn't playing.

tomb

Its not Chris's fault if he has to read stuff that is blatantly wrong on here (Blackwells fitness etc). The players will talk to you at the games, its like when people assumed Plunkett was injured on here, everytime he wasnt picked for the 4 dayers, again, Wrong! And no I dont know everything, but stuff thats obvious to everyone... Chris was right to correct!

chrissafc

well done lads

Lunch

Durham 72-1 at lunch - back shortly!

1:05pm

chrissafc

mitchell johnson was sound. predictable it was, doherty was the first one out and on the bus

chrissafc

ridgeley - i just think it's rude to put something out in the public domain. you may beg to differ but never mind. i'd love to see blackwell back in the team

safcluke

Mitchell Johnson was great. Absolutely brilliant. As was Matthew Wade.

chrissafc

. aye he ignored everyone on saturday. brett lee was very good despite struggling to walk.

keenasmustard

I must admit I was annoyed with Michael Clarke. All the Aussies signed autographs except him.

Ridgeley

Gawd give it a rest msn chrissafc weve gathered your the most important man at DCCC

chrissafc

same cant be said for michael clarke on saturday.

chrissafc

by the way, what a great advert for cricketers herschelle gibbs has been at the home games. time for everyone.

tomb

Message Understood

auldtimer

How can you tell.

chrissafc

not fair i post exactl details of conversations etc. the players know who i am, it's not rocket science, me and steph at the cricket is it? - don't fancy getting on the wrong side of them for posting stuff they have told us onto match chat.

tomb

Theres always something there to remind me......

chrissafc

:)

tomb

He's doesnt look in much pain when he's on the beer!

Response to tomb

Yes, lets. Mystic Yvette has a nice ring to it!

12:45pm

tomb

Maybe you've predicted the future, lets hope so

Response to tomb

Dear me...should be 15*...by Shift button stuck!

12:44pm

chrissafc

I'd rather not go into details what blackwell told me. I just keep rubbishing the rumours he's injured

dalesgirl

Hearsay

Ridgeley

So what exactly is the prob re blackwell? Do any of you actually know or is it pure gossip?

tomb

Muchall 158, that was a quick knock!

dalesgirl

I've known for ages there was a problem. Its amazing what you can pick up listening to folks

Latest

Durham 61-1 after 18 overs, Stoneman 22* and Muchall 158.

12:41pm

tomb

Ridgeley, everyone at the ground knew there was a problem, its just some people were claiming on here that he is only in the seconds until he recovers from injury.

Ridgeley

Chrissafc why dont you just tell us the crack with blackwell rather than dropping hints????

tomb

When Blackwell and Cook were in Austins recently, they kept their distance, and didnt look or speak to each other. Somethings gone on, but would rather have Blackie in the team than out of it.

safcluke

Dont fancy wasting a tenner to watch adam reed and the likes. Anyway, back to the cricket.....

chrissafc

I will keep an eye on it, will be plenty time to decide.

safcluke

It will depend whos managing the team, O'Neil or Ball...

chrissafc

cheers luke, i'm off that day for middlesex day 1, if its down as an XI game i might just stay back after the game for the members Q&A

chrissafc

i just hope muchall can push on and get a massive score.

safcluke

ow Chris, that hartlepool game is down as an XI game. Might not bother now like.

chrissafc

blackwell is out of favour. ask him and he'll tell you the craic. i've dropped hints on here for a month now.

dalesgirl

chrissafc - no you're right

Durham 50

Durham reach fifty in the 16th over..keep up the good work boys!

12:29pm

keenasmustard

50 up.

chrissafc

muchall is usually out by now in fairness dalesgirl

safcluke

Or am I not allowed to ask that?

tomb

Are some people seriously saying he's out th team cos of fitness? He's never been fit! He's been playing cricket for weeks and left out of the T20's, out of favour, lets hope he and Cook can make up if thers a problem.

safcluke

Why is he still in the team?

dalesgirl

Muchall always starts off like that. Here's hoping it doesn't cost him his wicket

safcluke

Nothing on the seconds page.

auldtimer

According to the Worcs commentary team Muchall has used 5 of his nine lives up and if he's still there at lunch he'll get a hundred, here's wishing.

chrissafc

yorkshire

safcluke

Who are the seconds playing?

chrissafc

are the 2nd xi at home or away?

chrissafc

keep it going lads

2XI update

2XI: Durham 29-1 after Ben Raine is caught behind.

12:26pm

Update

Let's try that again! Durham 44-1, Stoneman 15* and Muchall 8*.

12:24pm

via SMS

Muchy is riding his luck a bit here.

Frankjw

not a bad start, considering we lost toss. Lot of Extras

chrissafc

44-1

chrissafc

his lack of batting practice has cost us. he should have been playing in the 2nds instead of carrying the drinks in the T20

Durham 26-1

Durham 26-1 after Smith is caught off Richardson for 11. Gordon Muchall joins Stoneman 9*.

12:02pm

Tristan

smith gone :(

Tristan

d'oh

We're back!

Durham resume on 26 without loss as Stoneman and Smith return to the middle.

11:59am

Latest

The covers are coming off...we are resuming here at 12 noon.

11:47am

keenasmustard

If they get back on.

chrissafc

he's out of favour. anyway back to today's game

auldtimer

I think there's a big difference between being fit for the seconds and being fit for the first team.

chrissafc

he's obviously fit enough to play, just not selected. i've mentioned this a few times over the last month or so. clearly out of favour

dalesgirl

I was thinking that as well

Tristan

... that could take a while.... dammit!

Tristan

-must resist saying it-

dalesgirl

Must be working his way back to fitness

chrissafc

he was in the 2nds recently at brandon also

dalesgirl

Nice to see Blackie in the seconds

Rain...

The rain falls...and the players come off...hopefully it won't be for long! Durham 26-0 after 8 overs.

11:34am

chrissafc

diva won't be sticking around, he's heading home soon

Tristan

cheers auldtimer

auldtimer

Here's the radio link if anyone's interested. http://www.bbc.co.uk/sport/0/cricket/18768614

tomb

If he can score some big runs in the 2nd half of the season, that will be very timely for us. I would expect him to bat higher than 6 and take some responsiblity of some of the other batsman. I don't doubt Colly has been a good player, I just feel there was a bit of a myth about the extent of his success for Durham. Anyway, he's not playing today so will turn my attention to the team out there today.

Tristan

blackwell playing for the seconds! along with breesy, harmison, plunkett, brathwaite, smith & muchall this year, you could confuse our firsts with seconds a bit this year

chrissafc

myburgh also living down in london, he may have stuff to sort out now he's staying here.

Tristan

southwood, reading that just had my hairs stand on end a little bit, very well put

2XI update

The 2XI are looking at an 11.15am start v Yorkshire. We won the toss and will bat first. The team is Raine, Jennings, Singh, Blackwell, Breese (c), Pringle, Clark, Wood, Coughlin, Pearce, Brathwaite, Buckley.

11:29am

southwood

A matter of timimg

southwood

Collly has played for Durham since 1996 playing 125 matches to date mostly prior to 2005 when he became more permanent on the England team. His 7000 runs and 108 wickets are only bettered by Benks, Diva and John Lewis. His contribution to Durham is very substantial and occured in the lean years.Possibly not a legend in the same way that Benks ,diva and Ottis are in recent years but he carried the Durham flag on the international stage at that time along with Harmy . Tristan has summed it up well

Ed Syers

Considering the position we're in, I think it's pretty sensible taking it steady.

Tristan

its alright yvette, just remember the run rate can be as low as you like as long as you keep a 0 after the runs scored

Update

Takes a bit of getting used to being back doing four day stuff...Durham 10-0 after 5 overs.

11:20am

Myburgh

Myburgh had a prior commitment this week, which the club has honoured. He is available for four day and one day cricket.

11:18am

Tristan

he is signed for teh cc too, just a matter of registration, or pehaps we've given him a few days off to get his bags packed

Tristan

@tomb - another factor there is colly player for us more through the bad years than the good years by which time he was entrenched in the england side, just a matter of timing really

tomb

I thought he was sined for 4 dayers as well, obviously if he's selected like everyone else

keenasmustard

Is Myburgh not being available till Sunday down to registration or is he just going to play CB40 games?

safcluke

Also good to see Cal Thorp again.

tomb

He did spend his best years with England, thats a fair point. However as a Durham fan rather than an England fan I think of our legends as players who have made significant contributions to Durhams success, particularly in the Championship winnig years, such as Diva, Benks, Onions, even Harmy though he has disapointed lately, and Phil Mustard for his all round contributions. I dont remember Colly making significant contributions to this success,if we survive through his captaincyandruns,yes!

Latest

Durham 8-0 in the third over...

11:08am

via SMS

Brathwaite playing for Sunderland and having problems with his radar, 28 wides in two games.

via SMS

Harrison's shin splint problem has flared up again, nothing serious but needs attention.

Response to tomb

Harrison has had shin trouble so hasn't been playing. I'm sure he'll be back in contention soon!

11:05am

Tristan

oh aye forgot all about harrison! strange to see him dropped after such a promising start to his durham career

tomb

Is Harrison, injured, dropped or rested / rotated do we know? No sign of Brathwaite again, no Claydon and Plunkett well down the pecking order plus Mark Wood, can see why we let Harmy go

Tristan

@tomb the prime years of colly's career have been spent with england, of course we havent seen the best of him but that is true of ever county player who represents england in every form of the game. couldnt be more proud of colly.

tomb

Shame we lost the toss. Interested to see if Rushworth can carry on with his recent good form

dalesgirl

Pleased to get back to proper cricket

Frankjw

And some of us not so patiently!

Day one begins

Mark Stoneman and Will Smith open for Durham...here we go!

10:56am

LV=CC resumes!

A lot of you have been waiting patiently for this...the resumption of the County Championship!

10:56am

tomb

Tristan, you are absolutley right in the sense that he has won the ashes and represented England while being associated with Durham. I just think we havent had the same sort of form from him playing for us.

tomb

Richardson batted well at Colwyn Bay, our best batsman on the day.

Tristan

The fact that collingwood has represented durham ccc worldwide with england makes him a durham legend in my eyes

tomb

I tend to agree with Mackem Dave, I think the resentment actually is to do with the ocntracts players such as Harmy, Colly and Blackwell are on without contributing much, I would say Colly is more of an England legend than a Durham legend, (I know hes a Durham lad)he has been only been an average player for us (fielding aside).All the hype on Look North i think it was last night was about how Colly was ready to lead us out against Worcester, including interviews with Colly confirming this!

dalesgirl

Pleased for Richardson. I've been saying he should be given a chance for a while now

Tristan

Thanks yvette

safcluke

Absolutely delighted for M.Richardson. Hope he goes well.

Response to Tristan

As far as I'm aware, I don't think Diva will be involved with the club following his retirement. I'm not the oracle though!

10:47am

Tristan

I wont get you started if you promise not to start yourself dave ;)

Tristan

Yvette is Diva still gonig to be involved in dccc somehow are all ties cut? possibly coaching or anything like that? I read quotes from him that he still feels he has a lot to offer in one day cricket, not sure if he was volunteering to play limited for us or if he was just saying he would like to or what...?

Mackem_Dave

Sorry for saying it as it is, I must have missed something, perhaps we are top of the CC or qualified for the T20 Q finals..... Don't get me started on the standard of the Riverside a year before the Ashes

Frankjw

Nobody can get everything right all of the time, not even Mackem_Dave

Tristan

Personally i'd say no. It is unfortunate that colly should fail to recover from his hand/wrist injury in time to captain this match but i'm excited about the future under a true durham legend, just as one departs, it is gutting that diva has retired but time waits for no man

Tristan

Does anyone else think Mackem_Dave is in an unusually good mood today?

Mackem_Dave

Does anyone else think the club is in utter chaos? Harmison goes on loan and the comments from Colly are very cryptic. MDV retires the day before a CC game after not playing for a month? Colly is named as captain and is in the squad yesterday yet doesnt play today and Benks is captain. The organisation and communication is a complete shambles.

Tristan

depends how many runs we score ;)

Toss result

Just had confirmation that Worcester won the toss - so they have put us in.

10:40am

marchy22

Who actually won the toss

Worcester team

Worcs: Mitchell (c), Highes, Solanki, Ali, Cameron, Pardoe, Andrew, Scott (wk), Shantry, Richardson, Jones

10:39am

Tristan

best of luck to all the lads today, lets get our season started!

Tristan

morning

dalesgirl

Morning all

Tristan

great to see richardson being given a chance. hope stokes can make that 3 spot his, not sure moving up has been the best thing for him so far, wonder if myburg will take it and stokes back to 4? runs runs runs please lads

Durham team

Durham: Stoneman, Smith, Stokes, Benkenstein (c), Muchall, Richardson, Mustard (wk), Borthwick, Thorp, Onions, Rushworth

10:36am

Tristan

sorry benks i ment not diva. sob sob

Tristan

is diva captaining the side today then?

Toss result

Durham are batting first...

10:35am

Toss

The toss is taking place - Dale Benkenstein is doing the honours today as Colly's hand isn't quite up to playing yet.

10:31am

Frankjw

Which 2 from the travelling 13 will not get a game? Richardson & Claydon?

Response to Ed Syers

Myburgh has been given an extension until the end of the season - he will be available for selection for Sunday's game.

10:27am

Ed Syers

Any news on whether Myburgh will be given a contract?

Noz

He was injured pre T20 though wasn't he??

marchy22

If he isn't injured does it mean that its likely we will never see him in durhams team agaon

via SMS

Chrissafc he isn't injured.

Noz

Here's hoping for plenty of play and a great result. Is Blackwell still injured?

via SMS

Chrissafc every faith in them. Slight concern that smith hasn't had much batting lately but he's a good player and expect all to do well

Frankjw

Chris - Remaining batsmen need to raise their game, I think they probably will.

chrissafc

& best wishes to mdv. top man both on and off the pitch. he'll be a massive miss. wasn't shocked when it was announced yesterday as it was rumoured a week back, was hoping it wasnt true but never mind

chrissafc

frank - yvette told me on here on sunday, groundstaff finished 1.30am saturday and back in at 4.30am saturday. great effort. they got a mention on sunday on the tannoy system

Frankjw

Thats great Yvette, and may the good news continue for the four days! Just home from Saturdays game at Riverside. Brilliant effort by groundstaff and great organisation by Durham. Sad to see Diva retire from 4 day game but great players know when to go. Hope Harmy gets loads of wickets for Yorks and comes back to us a new man.

chrissafc

good luck lads

Day one

We're at New Road, the sun is trying to come out and best of all we're scheduled to start on time at 11am!
