raydetmold

If Smith or Muchall play against Surrey i will put my foot straight through this computor screen

Chrissafc some of our top order couldn't bat aggressive. Having smith carry the drinks during the t20 hasn't helped him when some played at brandon for 2nds

Durham 150

Durham 151-7 as Thorp reaches 20* and Borthwick 17* - our lead is 78.

bryn

Aftas all im on my way down,parachuting in dressed as the queen!

via SMS

Chrissafc is denly allow to walk over the wicket so deliberate? Right in front of the stumps where colly is facing

via SMS

Tomb its not like a test match at the oval where its easier to stay in than get out

via SMS

here will a ball with your name on it. Scores of 300 plus are unrealistic

via SMS

Wicket is shockin to bat on again, think only 2 batting points here all season for all teams combined. The only way to score is to play aggressively as t

brandonia

Bit of rational thinking now, the ball did next to nowt in their innings as it got older, so if these two can take a few overs off the ball and occupy the crease we can build a lead.

And now for the lead...

Durham 87-4 and now time to build a lead, Benkenstein 31* and Collingwood 2*

2:21pm

brandonia

Few whoops now as we're in the lead! 1-4.

2:12pm

brandonia

I'll be amazed if there's any cricket to play tomorrow...... Unless it rains?!

Chrissafc I said 2 month ago blackwell wouldn't be playing any 1 day stuff. Cook confirmed that last nite & hinted blackwell may play vs aus a nxt wk.

goonernortheast

Admission to the Australia A game is free.

12:52pm

via SMS

Chrissafc richardson I doubt will play seems mustards injury "not brilliant". Jennings and blackwell should play. We are 25/2 here

safcluke

Anyone know how Paul Muchall is doing down at Gloucester?

via SMS

Chrissafc we are petrified of finn. Its so sad watching us struggle like this. If cook is true to his word about having to earn a 1st team place.... Hmmm

dalesgirl

Can't get down today. I'm hoping the game will last three days

safcluke

Looking forward to that Aus A game. Hope to see Richardson/Jennings/Wood/Harrison etc

foxbat

Thinking of coming along to the Australia A game next week, will there be a charge to get in or will it be free? Also when's the start of play?

Durham second innings

Durham's second inning begins - Mark Stoneman and Will Smith are the men at the crease.

12:22pm

dalesgirl

Odd that Onions was brought on so late

brandonia

Oh, I see my mate has gone?! Well done Bunny. Not as good a morning as we'd have liked but we're still in the game. What is more, this is the time to stand up and be counted. A centurion or a couple of 50's could be good enough. A lead of 270 could be massive. COME ON DURHAM. I BELIEVE!!

Middlesex post 185

Middlesex are dismissed for 185 with a lead of 83. Onions picks up the last wicket!

12:12pm

via SMS

Chrissafc bunny with another. All out. 83 lead

brandonia

All out.

Nine down!

Chrissafc bunny with a wicket. Lead is 83

About time.

Bowling change

Graham Onions comes on at the Finchale End for the 65th over - Middlesex 177-8.

11:55am

Thorp strikes!

Berg is caught off Thorp for 37! Middlesex 177-8, leading by 75

11:52am

brandonia

Lead is now beyond us, poor bowling this morning. Wicket now for Thorpedo but too late.

via SMS

Chrissafc berg out

via SMS

Chrissafc lead is 75 now

brandonia

GET ONIONS ON.

brandonia

This is pathetic, we had them on the ropes last night and woeful bowling to the tail this morning has let it slip away. No chance we'll score 350 in second innings. Flipping Tim Murtagh is been made to look like Ricky Ponting.

Bowling change

Callum Thorp joins in with the attack now..

11:43am

brandonia

Any idea why our best bowler by a country mile hasn't been used yet?? Absolutely baffling.

Latest

Middlesex 160-7 with Rushworth and Stokes the current attack.

11:34am

via SMS

Chrissafc the earn your place comment I didn't agree with as I don't think some have earned their place. Lead here is 54

via SMS

Chrissafc 6ther than that it was a decent talk in

brandonia

Get Bunny on.

Mark

I thought Colly, Geoff and David Harker did well in the q&a. Hard to disagree with anything they said.

Highlights

Highlights of day one are currently being uploaded so should be available shortly.

11:24am

ouch

Tim Murtagh takes a Stokes bouncer on the helmut, physios been on, but he seems ok to carry on

11:20am

via SMS

Chrissafc cook also praised mark stoneman last night. Fair to assume he's part of the future plans

brandonia

So any news on the video?

BrianT

On my way through now after work. Was shocked and disappointed when I got there yesterday at 24 for 3. Got more depressed as our innings went on. However, it did look difficult with batsmen out of form and low on confidence. Left the ground at close feeling happier with fightback. Doesn't seem to be anything wrong with the spirit. We need some of the good fortune that fell to Rogers who played aggressively. See how it goes today. Good luck lads. I won't mention the car park ticket machines.

Day two

Day two begins - Middlesex are 144-7, Berg 39* and Murtagh 0*. Borthwick completes his unfinished over from last night.

11:01am

dalesgirl

Wish I could have stayed for the Q&A.

via SMS

Chrissafc well done for hosting it. Great chance for the fans to have a chat with those at the top

via SMS

Chrissafc hint that jennings and myburgh should play nxt wk. Mustard injury "not brilliant"

via SMS

Chrissafc q&a interesting last nite. The "you have to earn your place" comment was interesting given the way some with the bat have done

brandonia

Is the video available of yesterday yet Yvette?

brandonia

Our season starts NOW.

Day two

We'll be starting on time this morning at Emirates Durham on day two of our game v Middlesex.

9:18am
