Stan Drop

" There's a breathless hush in the close tonight ..."

christoff

This is agonising

Bowling change

Ben Stokes replaces Rushworth - Sussex 83-8, 11 required to steal the win

2:37pm

Stan Drop

Tail enders (incl me ) would prefer to face spin than seam.

Response to Stan Drop

Nope! Usual composure went out the winter when the 7th wicket went down!

2:36pm

chrissafc

4 runs to anyon

marchy22

These two will bowl out

christoff

2:25pm

chrissafc

"amazing piece of wicketkeeping"

chrissafc

yes come on

chrissafc

caugh wicket

Lancsfan

I hope Durham win - most of their official forum posters were predicting a comfortable win against Durham and a late title bid.

Update

Appeal turned down...Sussex 67-7...keep the faith!

2:19pm

marchy22

Highest partnership of the innings this

marchy22

Letting this slip now

via SMS

Tomb sms this is a fantastic effort. Just seen the score. Thorp ideal in these conditions.

BrianT

Round the wicket not working for Thorp

christoff

Durham need 3 wickets - 1 now please

chrissafc

sussex need 32 to win

marchy22

Come on don't let the tail win this for them

BrianT

Off to cut the grass. Do you want the clippings to spread around Old Trafford?

Latest

So, Sussex 55-7 - cracking effort from Chris Rushworth and Callum Thorp - they continue...

2:08pm

Mark

Good point Brian

BrianT

A couple of rain interruptions might help as long as they aren't prolonged. Just enough to rest bowlers and disrupt batters.

chrissafc

"beautiful blue skies in the distance and the light has improved" - wish they would make their mind up

Update

There was black cloud looming but it's broken up a bit. Sussex 53-7 after 27 overs. What an effort!

2:03pm

Mark

So there's a chance of rain?!

chrissafc

"anything is possible here including a washout" - tim wellock

brandonia

This is mad. Even if they end up winning by 3 wickets, what a day it's been.

chrissafc

ha ha

Tynevalleyblackcat

In spain and just came up to room to have some lunch. My paid internet connectipn has 5 mins left and wife is expecting me back down at poolside. Hat trick please!!

Mark

That bowler who caused the problems-Magoffin? I htink he can bat so still lots of work to do but this has been a stunning effort

marchy22

Is join yous on the streak if I had the energy

BrianT

Well done bowlers and fielders too.

Mark

Wow, we can do this!

christoff

Yeeeehhaaa, down to my y fronts in anticipation here

Thorp gets Goodwin out lbw! Sussex 50-7!!

1:58pm

I am in bed with a ear and throat infection. This performance is making me feel better. Come on Durham

christoff

chrissafc

bryn

If we pull this off im gonna streak!!!

chrissafc

the commentary sounded a bit misleading for a split second

marchy22

Don't get our hopes up like that

Mark

Brilliant stuff come on lads!

chrissafc

yes. he doesnt seem happy but big wicket for us

christoff

Yeeeessss!!!! Come on Durham

Blaydon defended 94 last Saturday so can Durham today

christoff

Afternoon all, Come on Durham get these wickets!!!!!

chrissafc

all the best durham

Latest

Just one off that over...and the umps are having a chat about the light - we're Ok at the minute though.

1:44pm

Mark

Good start

Update

Maiden over from Rushy - Sussex 41-5...Thorpy to take the ball at the opposite end.

1:40pm

Mark

Come on Durham!

Here we go!

Great anticipation here at Arundel as play resumes - I demand everyone's positive thoughts!

1:37pm

chrissafc

bait time

Lunch

That's lunch here at Arundel on the final day. Sussex 41-5. Interesting next session ahead!

12:58pm

marchy22

Let's hope we don't get victory snatched away from us when it looked like we had no chance

chrissafc

can't fault the bowlers

Mark

Thanks, it certainly is a fanntastic effort and it also puts our batting into perspective. Clearly a v tough pitch to bat on.

Update

Lunch is at 1pm regardless of overs bowled. Sussex 39-5 at the minute - this is a great effort!

12:55pm

Stan Drop

Never mind that, get stuck in lads. If we pull this off there will have been nothing seen like it since Houdini! Hawaay the lads!

Mark

How many overs before lunch?

Stan Drop

Clearly not a CC1 standard pitch. Isn't it usually the Duke of Norfolk's XI that plays there?

Mark

Afternoon all, looks like we have a real chance here. Surely though there must be something seriously wrong with the pitch?

Bowling change

A return for Callum Thorp for the 19th over, replacing Stokes. Sussex 36-5

12:47pm

Lancsfan

Durham have to be favourites now - even more so if they get rid of Goodwin.

Wicket!

Wicket! Wright is bowled by Rushworth. Sussex 35-5! We're half way there!

Somerset 2-2 chasing 270 to win against Warwicks!!!!!

Latest

Sussex 35-4, fielding our socks off out there! Stokes and Rushworth continue.

12:41pm

Lancsfan

I don't think OT compares very well with either Arundel or Tonbridge Wells in the beauty stakes.

Lancsfan

Thanks SixSixEight - I must have got my rhododendron bushes mixed up.

chrissafc

just got back, run out!! how careless and needless but their loss, our gain :)

Latest

Sussex 33-4 as Rushworth has a change of ends

12:35pm

SixSixEight

Lancsfan - no rhododendron bushes at Arundel - that is Tonbridge Wells. Lots of big trees and a view of the valley.

BrianT

How do you get run out chasing 67 from 67 overs in good weather?

dalesgirl

Thanks

Maths

Or something like that...it is Saturday!

12:29pm

Lancsfan

No...they only need 67 more.

Latest

Sussex currently 27-4...they need 70 more.

12:28pm

Lancsfan

I'd say it is 50-50 now - a Durham win would throw the relegation wide open.

dalesgirl

How many are Sussex needing ?

Sussex four down!

Woo hoo - a run out! Yardy is gone! Sussex 27-4!

12:25pm

keenasmustard

27/4

Lancsfan

If Durham somehow manage to pull a win out of the bag here it would drag Sussex back into relegation trouble.

BrianT

That would be a first.

Lancsfan

Lancashire play Surrey in the last game of the season at Old Trafford - I hope they prepare a decent wicket.

Bowling change

Ben Stokes replaces Chris Rushworth at the press tent end. Sussex 26-3 after 10 overs. Come on boys!

12:15pm

brandonia

I'd probably agree with that Brian. However the stupid London based journos would have you believe Surrey were favourites for the title!

chrissafc

tim wellock not scared to say what he thinks

BrianT

At the start of the season I would have expected Worcs and Surrey along with Middles'ex and Suss'ex to be involved, but not Lancs and Durham. Two teams who suffered from weather most and got off to bad starts.

Lancsfan

I wonder if they still have those rhododendron bushes around the Arundel ground?

chrissafc

he's doesn't mix his words

via SMS

Brandonia: The excellent Tim Wellock on the commentary now.

Lancsfan

Looks like the Notts v Surrey game is meandering towards a draw so relegation is 2 from 4 - Lancs, Durham, Surrey and Worcs.

BrianT

Maybe Arundel should be reserved for ShowBiz Eleven and Duke of Norfolk games as being unsuitable. I know it's beautiful and I don't expect you to comment Yvette as that would be ungracious.

chinesecut

Good bowling so far. Unfortunately for us Claydon is on next and the runs will flow. Claydon and muchall should be dropped for myburgh and Onions

chrissafc

haway durham, lets have them

BrianT

And maybe the wicket is difficult. Four home games left to get out of bottom two.

chrissafc

Callum Thorp making a point to the selectors here mind

chrissafc

full credit to the bowlers here mind

Sussex three down!

Sussex 22-3 after Thorp bowls Nash on 13! Keep going Durham!

12:04pm

keenasmustard

Three down. Still in it.

chrissafc

any sunderland season ticket holders can go to the hamps cb40 game for a fiver according to safc rewards

BrianT

Happened last year for T20 QF. Lancs. I like Muchall, he is a fine stroke player having a rough time. Whether he would stay and put up with the abuse, or move on is questionable.

Update

Sussex 19-2 in the 7th over - Rushworth and Thorp continue.

11:59am

chrissafc

fair point brian, blame the ecb for that. crazy scheduling

BrianT

That's another sore point. Arundel scheduled finish 6pm, drive through holiday traffic to start next day in Taunton. Not good.

Lancsfan

Hi fellow relegation strugglers I am a Lancs fan and I was horrified by our performance against Worcestershire - humiliating to be destoyed by a part-time spinner to say the least.

chrissafc

time and time again they are giving us a bit of hope when really we have no right

chrissafc

got to give credit to our bowlers mind

marchy22

We need a hat trick from someone

Wicket!

Sussex 13-2 as Borthwick catches Gatting off Thorp for 6! Come on Durham!

11:54am

keenasmustard

Two down. It's not over yet. COME ON DURHAM!

raydetmold

what time do we get underway at taunton tomorrow ?

BrianT

How do you explain it?

chrissafc

can't imagine they are delighted to be getting stuffed at home to worcester

chrissafc

probably won't be happy brian

BrianT

Wonder what Lancs fans make of their last performance?

chrissafc

i hardly commented on here yesterday

Latest

Sussex 10-1 after four over...Rushworth and Thorp continue.

11:49am

chrissafc

rushworth taking his chance very well

chrissafc

muchall does well in the pro 40 as i have said 100s of times on here. unfortunately cb40 isn't the lvcc cricket which is what we are talking about at the moment.

LMC

I think it is fair to say that this service is to offer match updates and general comment on the matches. Comments of a personal nature towards players won't be tolerated. I think we are fair and allow you to posts negative comments as well as positve ones but you should remember no one likes losing, and it isn't taken lightly.

11:46am

raydetmold

i dont come on here to slate the team , its because im so passionate about my home county if it didnt bother me losing everyweek then i wouldnt comment but it does

BrianT

Thorpe and Ruchworth bowl economically and build pressure. We are lacking a killer bowler to take advantage, eg Onions re Harmy of old. Ray: no they aren't always the same.

marchy22

Well said ray

raydetmold

THE BOWLERS HAVE PERFORMED MIRACLES ALL SEASON , JUST THE SPINELESS NEGATIVE BATSMAN WHO LET US DOWN EVERY GAME , OH AND BEFORE ANYBODY MENTIONS THE CONDITIONS THIS SUMMER , ITS THE SAME FOR THE OPPOSITION

nd over again. We've won championships with the same squad of players so they have to come good

marchy22

Rushworth is very improved and has taken his chance well

keenasmustard

Here we go. Rushy strikes - only nine more to get.

safcluke

That's one bloke who never ever lets anyone down and always takes wickets. Well done Rushy.

BrianT

Sorry Yvette the zeds were for the post before yours.

Sussex 0-1

Wicket in the first over! Rushworth dismisses Wells. Sussex 0-1. Keep the faith!

11:36am

marchy22

Durham could make the oval look like a mine field

keenasmustard

Cone on folks, it looks inevitable we'll lose this but you never know. The pitch is tricky so a couple of early wickets and panic might set in. It's not over until the fat lady sings.

BrianT

zzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Response to Brian T

The conditions have been incredibly changeable - I'd say we've had the worst of it, lots fo rain breaks in our innings, which doesn't help.

11:35am

safcluke

Who cares if he's scored runs in P40. No one is questioning his place in that team.

BrianT

I wasn't following this yesterday but I was shocked when I saw the score. Is it a minefield?

Sussex innings begins

Right all - the Sussex innings is about to begin - support is required...a few early wickets and we're in this!

11:32am

BrianT

Well said but who are you?

via SMS

n his last pro40. To start going on about not renewing his contract etc, is below the mark. I think you should change the record

via SMS

ure that u want him dropped, but what about the rest of the team. Nobody is getting runs so surely that's why we aren't winning games. Muchall got 96no i

via SMS

Think Chrissafc would blame Muchall for World War 3 if broke out! Talk about harping on, anyone would think it's personal. I think everyone gets the pict

BrianT

Last night's match showed why Footy should not be an Olympic sport. Shocking behaviour, feigning injury. Plus, GB were crap and Pearce is out of his depth. Almost forgot Arundel for a moment.

safcluke

Anyone watching the test? Joy to watch these two. making our bowlers look average

chrissafc

non cricket here, but it was a joy to be at the game last night, brazil outstanding, what a team

Durham post 93

Durham all out for 93 after Claydon's middle stump is removed by Magoffin.

11:23am

raydetmold

they should all be left in Arundel , as far away from Chester-le-st as possible

marchy22

120 is not enough

marchy22

Muchall has to be dropped

chrissafc

i thought 120 might be enough, crazy thought last night

Update

Durham 92-9, another 30 and I think we could still be in with a chance here!

11:20am

chrissafc

would many have any complaints with that?

dalesgirl

Chrissafc If you're going on runs then the whole top order should be dropped

chrissafc

that's fair enough all about opinion. 1 thing i think the majority now agree on, is muchall needs dropping for all concerned. 94 runs in 9 innings. jus not good enough

raydetmold

sorry Chris , he is not positive enough , never ever gets off to a good start , hangs about , scores no runs then gets out , its even starting to effect young stokes now

chrissafc

i don't mind smith, i think it was crazy having him carrying the drinks for the t20 whilst some were playing 2nd xi cricket (stoneman).

raydetmold

The sad thing is the likes of Smith and Muchall will keep their place next friday against middlesex because nobody at the club has got a spine to drop them

via SMS

Chrissafc new day, same outcome. Gutted

dalesgirl

Oh no

Durham 84-9

Durham 84-9 after Thorp is out lbw to Magoffin for 12. Last man in is Chris Rushworth.

11:06am

via SMS

Chrissafc oh dear

Durham 80-8

Durham 80-8 as Collingwood is out lbw to Wernars for 29. Mitchell Claydon joins Callum Thorp (8*).

11:01am

We begin!

The fourth and final day begins at Arundel - Durham resume on 80-7

10:55am

Day four

More sunshine and blue skies again in Arundel this morning! Join us for an 11am start.
