Close of play

Sussex are 100-3 at the close of play on day two. Back tomorrow!

6:10pm

roker1973

catch lads taras

brandonia

KP out, stupid shot.

Noz

Pietersen out for 42 - 251/3 - new ball due in 2 balls time

Mark

Come on Colly, let's have a wicket

Bowling change

Colly will bowl the last two overs from the press tent end. Sussex 96-3.

5:59pm

brandonia

Ha'way Colly!

Mark

He's shirking his responsibilities!

safcluke

Not been on all day, looks like we've bowled canny.

brandonia

I should be captain, seeing as Norm is still AWOL!

Bowling change

Ask and you shall receive..on comes Scott Borthwick - he'll get two overs tonight.

5:56pm

Mark

Yeah, bring Scotty on

brandonia

Fully agree Mark, you'd think they don't want to play! Need a wicket like, I'd give Scotty a go at Mitch's end.

Mark

Some of the rules in this game baffle me, it;s ridiculous not to be able to 'make up' some overs.

Latest

Sussex 90-3 in the 36th over...five overs remain this evening

5:49pm

brandonia

Looks like the weather will intervene tomorrow now too.

brandonia

ECB should look at that rule. I agree Noz.

Noz

Seems bizarre/ridiculous but thanks Yvette

Response to Noz

No, we could catch up of we had lost any over today but it doesn't carry on from yesterday.

5:42pm

roker1973

10 mins lads just gannin to get DE liced

roker1973

thats what i thowt annal noz

brandonia

Nee idea what time marra, the commentator just said there were 10 overs remaining on the scoreboard.

Noz

Can we not play later to catch up what we lost yesterday?

roker1973

thanks might get a couple oot

Update

We play until 6pm this evening. Sussex 80-3 after 32 overs. Rushworth and Claydon continue

5:37pm

Mark

I agree. Get him on with fielders around the bat-when it gets near the close the batsmen might just be thinking of survival.

roker1973

brandon wat time we playing too ?

brandonia

10 overs left, I'd give Scotty a go. One things for sure, we MUST get atleast one more wicket before Close.

2XI update

2XI: Durham 174-5 after Myburgh is out lbw for 55. Another good knock!

5:28pm

BrianT

Colly obviously doesn't listen cos he's put Mitch back on. I'm off then till tomorrow.

Mark

Depends on the pitch, if the ball is nibbling around then Colly could be very effective. You're probably right though, Borthwick the better option.

roker1973

allreet lads just got in from graft are we still playing doon there or is ther rain ?

BrianT

Who would you rather face?

Mark

Might be worth Colly giving himself a few overs either that or Borthwick.

BrianT

Ben Stokes likely to get wickets but he's leaking runs here. Expect Scott Borthwick to open after this over. Or am I thinking rubbish? 9 more to avoid follow on.

Bowling change

Rushworth returns for the 29th over - Sussex 72-3.

5:20pm

Mark

Yes, he seems to be an excellent player

Noz

Been impressed with Myburgh since he signed

2XI update

2XI: Johann Myburgh reaches fifty against Warks - great stuff!

5:16pm

BrianT

I switched the commentary off yesterday. Rather listen to Mick Martin! Nah, that's a lie.

Scotland game

There are discussions taking place - as soon as we have news then we'll post here and on the main news section of the website.

5:07pm

via SMS

Brandonia: Aye Brian, I think they were more imagining they'd only need to bat once...... Idiots. What's BBC Radio Newcarrrstle aswell btw??

Noz

Keep going Cal lad :)

IAIN6W

Re Scotland game,not been a dry up here for a while.Must be a slim chance of game going ahead. On a selfish note,would rather the game be played in Glasgow,would be right on my door step!!

via SMS

Brandonia: GET IN THERE CAL! I'm owa the moon, sick to death of them commentators gushing over Wells.

bobstersafc

well done cal

Wicket!

Thorp bowls Wells! Sussex 59-3!

5:05pm

via SMS

Excellent from Thorpy,

bobstersafc

wells bowled

BrianT

Unless we ask them to follow on!

via SMS

Brandonia: Comms are counting their chickens a bit. On about Monty spinning it at us on Day 4! I'd be more worried about Scotty bowling at them on Day 4!!

2XI update

2XI: Pringle is dismissed and Durham are 140-4

4:57pm

Noz

Nice one Cal - lets get another

Mark

Colly's plan seems to be working-run rate around 2 an over so Sussex are going nowhere fast.

via SMS

Brandonia: Gerrin there Cal!

Wicket!

Gatting is out lbw to Thorp for 11! Sussex 42-2 after 20 overs

4:49pm

BrianT

He's stating the obvious there old pal, and playing mind games.

auldtimer

The Sussex coach reckons Durham have had the worst of the batting conditions and expects the pitch to get better today and tomorrow, that's the problem with losing the toss.

Latest

Sussex 32-1 after 17 overs...Ben Stokes comes on for the 18th over.

4:38pm

BrianT

Now there is a bore.

Stan Drop

Trottski ct behind for 71.

BrianT

Maybe they too are finding the conditions difficult.

keenasmustard

Sussex are trying to bore us out of the game.

Stan Drop

Rushy getting tired. Time for a change.

tomb

Probably need to bowl them out for around 150-180 to have time to win this.

BrianT

Wells played a match winning innings to win it for them. I just said it was boring. Compton got a double hundred. Lot of use it did them.

marchy22

We need wickets

tomb

He gota double 100 did her or was that Compton for Somerset? He got a least 150, first home match of the season

BrianT

Wells played a very patient innings (boring) last year at the EIS. Can't remember Gatting, don't think he was in long enough. Nowt like his uncle though.

2XI latest

2XI: Tea time at Rugby School, Durham 129-3, Myburgh 33*.

4:20pm

via SMS

Brandonia: Thanks for that, appreciate it.

Response to Brandonia

Yes, 7.

4:19pm

via SMS

Brandonia: Anyone know what Live Event we're on?

Mark

Don't know about tomorrow but according to Tim Wellock the forecast for Saturday is good.

tomb

Forecast for next two days?(weather)

Stan Drop

At current scoring rate it will take them 163 overs to catch up our 1st innings score. Let's have some wickets to put themout of their misery!

2XI latest

2XI: Durham 122-3 with Blackwell the third wicket to fall.

4:10pm

Play resumes

Play resumes here at Arundel after a brief shower - Sussex 13-1. Claydon to bowl.

4:05pm

Mark

Lol good one!

BrianT

gerroff.

keenasmustard

I thought we had already batted? Sorry, couldn't resist that joke.

Rain....

We're experiencing a bit of a shower here...

3:56pm

chrissafc

rushy deserves his game, took his chance very well

Tea

In the middle of tea at the moment - Sussex 13-1 after 9 overs.

3:52pm

keenasmustard

Did they take tea during the innings break?

aapierre

now rushy is at it trueman would be having a fit

keenasmustard

Yeah drop him. He's shedding runs.

aapierre

bloody heck thorpe expensive or what

via SMS

How does Rushy get a game, he's not the captains cousin anymore?

BrianT

Ta.

Update

Callum Thorp is the other bowler, and Rushworth continues

3:37pm

BrianT

Tight bowling that Colly asked for. Who's at the other end?

Durham 2XI

2XI: Durham 95-2 as Jennings is dismissed on 34.

3:35pm

Latest

Rushworth is currently four overs into his spell, four maidens and a wicket!

3:21pm

Wicket...

Nash is out lbw to Chris Rushworth! Sussex 4-1 in the fourth over.

3:20pm

auldtimer

Danger man Nash out, good start from Rushworth

keenasmustard

Nice start.

tomb

Lancs avoid follow on, wicket already?

via SMS

Get in rushy

aapierre

passed what ?

tomb

I take it the rain has passed?

tomb

Think people are getting carried away with Jennings here, he's had a good run but not expecting him to feature for a while yet. Myburgh for Muchall

via SMS

Muchall, Jennings isn't eligible to play in the CC.

dalesgirl

Muchall

keenasmustard

Who would you have for the next CC game - Muchall or Jennings?

tomb

Cook reckons Jennings is a good prospect but a fair way off from being ready for the first team. (from the members forum) (Cue his selection for the Middlesex game)

BrianT

Singh has 13 more. Is he a prospect?

chrissafc

got high hopes for this lad, seems an excellent prospect

chrissafc

jennings scoring runs again

2XI

2XI: Durham 69-0 with Singh 41* and Jennings 28*

3:00pm

keenasmustard

Cricinfo says we have 231

Rain...

And...it is now raining.

2:59pm

Durham 230 all out

The last man is dismissed and Durham post a first innings total of 230.

2:58pm

chrissafc

well done scotty

keenasmustard

Vital partnership that one.

via SMS

Brandonia: Excellent work Scotty. Hopefully this will be demoralising the hosts.

BrianT

Was just typing in well done and then he's out. Still well done. We'll get 249 now.

tomb

Great effort that

Durham nine down

Durham 230-9 after Borthwick is out lbw to Nash for 50. Rushworth joins Claydon (15*)

2:56pm

dalesgirl

Well done Scotty

chrissafc

Lancashire v Worcestershire at Manchester - Jul 18-21, 2012 Worcestershire 291; Lancashire 119/9

Borthwick 50

Fifty for Scott Borthwick! Good work. (67 balls, 8 fours). Durham 230-8.

2:52pm

keenasmustard

50 for Scotty.

Four!

Four...thanks to a mis-field in the slips..and that ended up right at my feet! Durham 229-8

2:51pm

keenasmustard

50 partnership. Wonder if the pitch is getting easier to bat on.

tomb

Lancs might well be following on

Partnership 50

Fifty partnership for Borthwick and Claydon...Durham 225-8

2:50pm

Stan Drop

Looking at BBC Weather it could be showers all afternoon tomorrow and most of Saturday morning, so a result looks unlikely. Dig in lads for that second bonus point.

Response to keenasmustard

It was a mis-field and think it went over

2:49pm

keenasmustard

Has Borthwick just hit a six? It's confusing on Cricinfo.

chrissafc

Worcestershire 291; Lancashire 118/8

tomb

Borthwicks best score this season?

Update

Durham 221-8 with Borthwick 43* and Claydon 13*

2:47pm

chrissafc

good effort by some here

Mark

I agree Brian, when we lost the toss I'd have taken 200 so anything more is a bonus. That's assuming conditions don't improve when Sussex bat.

marchy22

How's the seconds going

BrianT

Very pleased with the score so far. May be a turning point if it's as difficult as we are being told by radio etc.

al666

If you could put news of the scotland game on the website then that'll help

Response to chrissafc

We will certainyl post something on the website. I do think that it is the putting up of the stands that is causing the problem. I reckon they may wait and see what the weather brings in the next week or so to see if they can salvage anything. But, we will check.

2:40pm

via SMS

Brandonia: Tell you what we won't get though - 250.

chrissafc

Yvette could you let us know when you hear back from the ecb about the scotland game?

via SMS

Brandonia: Good old reverse psychology works again. I'm claiming that as a victory for Brandonia.

stemc

Decent partnership to get us to 200..

Update

Durham 200-8 with Borthwick 27* and Claydon 8*.

2:36pm

Durham 200

Durham reach 200 - bonus point!

2:36pm

chrissafc

Durham 195/8

chrissafc

Lancashire v Worcestershire at Manchester - Jul 18-21, 2012 Worcestershire 291; Lancashire 105/6

keenasmustard

Lets see what Sussex get before we can judge how well/badly we are doing in this game. One thing is certain though - if we look like winning it will rain, and will stay dry if we are about to lose.

tomb

We might get 200 Brandonia

BrianT

Don't think Sussex will get 200. Durham seem to have grafted hard but what was Benks doing getting out like that? That's what pressure does.

marchy22

Worcs looking good at the minute. We need to pull a win from the bag

via SMS

Brandonia: Another game without batting bonus points. This is looking grim.

tomb

Hard to tell what a competitive score might be

BrianT

As long as he's not watching the test!

marchy22

Not going well for us here.

Four!

Four to Claydon first ball!

2:17pm

tomb

Worcester doing well, Lancs 5 down and still a long way behind.

Durham 175-8

Callum Thorp is dismissed for 4. Durham 175-8 with Borthwick 12*, he is joined by Mitchell Claydon.

2:16pm

Response to Brian T

I know the man next to me in the press tent is!!

2:14pm

BrianT

Not much action on here today. Is everyone watching the golf?

chrissafc

plenty time to get the ground sorted as well

chrissafc

still plenty to do up in edinburgh though. just hope the cricket is on.

al666

yeah I'll be gutted if its off. Have to go to the fringe instead . . . .

Wicket...

Benkenstein is caught off Magoffin for 43. Durham 170-7 as Callum Thorp joins Borthwick (11*)

2:00pm

chrissafc

fingers crossed.

aapierre

The durham game may survive because the Eng game was called off mainly for lack of being able to put up the temp stands. Scot v Durham may not need it

chrissafc

cheers, a few of us have booked rail tickets and also hotels. i know the travel club have also booked up for this game.

Response to chrissafc

We are lookng into it but we await instruction from ECB.

1:56pm

2XI update

2XI: Ryan Pringle cleared up the tail and Warks were all out for 73. At lunch we were 5-0 after 1 over.

1:55pm

chrissafc

can someone at the club try and find out the craic?

chrissafc

oh dear we are booked up in edinburgh for that game as well.

We're back!

We're back on here at Arundel - Durham now 165-6 with Benkenstein 42* and Borthwick 7*.

1:50pm

aapierre

the scot v eng game on 12th in Edinburgh is off http://www.ecb.co.uk/news/england/sco-eng-odi,318814,EN.html

al666

Hi all. does anyone know what is happening with the scotland v durham game in edinburgh on the 5th? I've bought train tickets already but it sounds like the venue will be unplayable.

stemc

Yep, anywhere near 250 might not be a bad 1st innings score..

dalesgirl

Afternoon all

Noz

Let's hope we can add a few more runs this afternoon and then knock a few over before the close.

stemc

Aye considering previous sessions. Pity the colonel couldn't have seen it through to lunch, he'd dug in well.

tomb

Not a bad morning for us

Lunch

That's lunch at Arundel - Durham 158-6, Benkenstein 42* and Borthwick 1*. Back shortly!

12:59pm

2XI update

2XI: Warks 61-8 as Ryan Pringle comes on and strikes!

Durham 157-6

Mustard is caught by Nash off Panesar for 27. Durham 157-6 after 57 overs. Borthwick joins Benks (42*)

12:53pm

Weather watch

There is quite an ominous black cloud heading towards us...fingers crossed it misses the ground!

12:43pm

Update

Durham 156-5 in the 54th over, Benkenstein 41* and Mustard 27*.

12:41pm

stemc

Very good. Keep it up. Amazing but this is Benks top score of the season so far.

tomb

Good stuff lads

2XI

2XI: Coughlin strikes again as Ryan Pringle hold onto the catch! Warks now 44-6.

12:30pm

Durham 150!

Durham pass the 150 mark - it's been a huge effort from these two!

12:27pm

auldtimer

Tim Wellock is helping out with the BBC live commentary today, hope it brings us some luck.

2XI

Plenty action at Rugby school - Warks 43-5! Brathwaite gets a wicket, caught behind, Raine has an lbw decision go in his favour and then Coughlin comes on and gets a wicket in his first over!

12:22pm

Update

Temperature has dropped and the the wind has picked up...more jumpers please...that could just be in our tent...everyone else seems to be in t-shirt and shades! Durham 135-5 (over 47)

12:19pm

Update

Durham 123-5 in the 44th over, Benkenstein 20* and Mustard 16*

12:04pm

BrianT

I was trying to make the point yesterday that even Notts were struggling to score and keep wickets in hand. Unfortunately this was taken to assume I was comparing our form with their's. Nice to see Harmy taking wickets again. Is there a way back for him?

tomb

Rain at Notts and Lancs, just glad we're out playing at the moment

BrianT

Are you there Marchy? Does it look easy to you?

Response to marchy22

It's pretty difficult out there - they've got to play carefully, the ground is still very, very wet. It's pretty muddy on the way round the ground too...almost fallen over myself!

11:55am

marchy22

20 runs in 50 mins. Painful going this

tomb

Colly seems to escape criticism on here but he has struggled as much as anybody, one 50 this season.

Durham 100

Hundred up for Durham - Benks 15* and Mustard yet to score

11:20am

Response to marchy22

2XI: Jennings, Blackwell (c), Myburgh, Singh, Pringle, G Clark, Raine, Coughlin, Weighll, Pearce (wk), Brathwaite

Here we go!

Durham resume on 92-4 as play resumes on day two...stick with us for updates!
