5:07pm

SpickandSpan

Surrey looking good against Notts though, not good

marchy22

lancs held up by rain and worcs struggling against sussex, all good for us

tomb

Why not use the proceeds from the Tom Jones concert to fund it?

marchy22

if i win the euros this friday i may just make an offer to buy the club lol

Update

Aus 'A' 32-1 in the ninth over, 21 remain tonight, Claydon and Brathwaite continue. Davis 17* and Klinger 7*.

4:57pm

brandonia

Thanks for that Yvette and good work too! I can imagine it wouldn't be cheap in fairness. If I win the Euromillions I too can offer sponsorship!

tomb

Forget that, Yvette can do the commentary herself. Or how about Sir Gareth (Peter)from this chat, he knows how to talk about cricket

marchy22

very flattered chris, when i win the euros this friday i will sponsor the radio for durham indefinitely and invest in a couple of players for the club

chrissafc

radio marchy has a ring to it

Response to Brandonia

This is something we did look into last season and I have spent some time with the people at Somerset who organise it. We would need to secure sponsorship to be able to deliver this service. I'll keep pushing it though!

4:50pm

bryn

The mb show (marty n brands)

brandonia

Serious question Yvette - could the club not look into doing their own?? I'd even be happy to chip in if Marty is given the job! I'd be his summariser for nowt aswell!

brandonia

Serious question Yvette - could the club not look into doing their own?? I'd even be happy to chip in if Marty is given the job! I'd be his summariser for nowt aswell!

Wicket!

Cowan is trapped lbw by Brathwaite for 4! Aus 'A' 21-1. Klinger joins Davis (15*)

4:48pm

tomb

Will miss Martin if he has to leave

brandonia

BBC NUFC's coverage is pretty limited anyway, with them only doing home CC's, whereas some of the other counties cover it so e tens overly that they even have FM frequencies covered. Marty does a cracking job too. Can we not do our own Yvette?!! Like Somerset do?!!

tomb

Ok, good, I didnt want to say in case got somebody in trouble but its straight from the horses mouth really. It is pathetic, ok not many listeners but surely its the BBc's responsibility to keep British institutions like County Cricket covered.

brandonia

That's a massive shame. It's a great service. Plus when you think of some of the rubbish they do spend money on its terrible they can't find the funding (which I imagine it is) for county cricket.

keenasmustard

It's definite tomb. It must be official now becuase I heard about it the other day.

SpickandSpan

There's an article on don't chase the wide ones backing up Tomb. We're world number one in test cricket and the bbc will spend the money on darts, disgraceful

tomb

How many overs are left today?

tomb

Its been rumoured for a while now, I was suprised that it lasted this season. I don't want to say as its not official yet, let just say from a very reliable source...I think may well be across the board

brandonia

Where have you heard that Tomb? Massive shame if so, is that across the board or just on BBC NUFC?

tomb

Sounds like the BBC county cricket radio coverage will be axed at the end of the season, shame.

Update

Aus 'A' 19-0 after 4 overs, Cowan 3* and Davis 15*

4:35pm

Response to Brandonia

No radio commentary for this match.

4:33pm

brandonia

Is there any commentary on today?

Ridgeley

bryn speling was never my strong point

marchy22

yes i did behave myself, darts was brilliant and had a bet on 18-15 for taylor to win at 10/1

bryn

Cheers marchy,hope you behaved your self in blackpool

Bowling update

Ruel Brathwaite will bowl the second over from the Lumley End. Aus A 1-0

4:23pm

We're back!

The Australia A innings begins, Cowan and Davis open. Mitchell Claydon bowls the first over.

4:21pm

marchy22

womens rowing was our 1st gold

bryn

What did we win the other gold for? Have we fast tracked whinging into the games and makam dave smashed the world record?

chrissafc

olympic update - is boris still stuck on the zip wire?

brandonia

Olympic Update - Men's Hockey. GOAL FOR GB, Dan Fox from a penalty corner. GB 1-0 Saffers.

brandonia

Wiggo GOLD, Froome BRONZE, I'm off to play a bit of The Jam in honour of the lads!

bryn

Tomb,hario tangfastics mixed with mb,ridge last time i looked tecnical had a h in it minor point

keenasmustard

I see Craig McDermott's son got 4 in this innings.

chrissafc

also bronze for chris froome

Ridgeley

howay durham lets do some good bowling! (tecnical term)

keenasmustard

Bradley Wiggins wins our second gold medal.

chrissafc

these lower order lads could show some of our top order lads how to bat. good effort

tomb

Bryn, what are you spaced out on and is that allowed in the ground?

tomb

Good recovery from the lower order again

keenasmustard

Damn, didn't even get a batting point (Ha Ha).

Durham post 197

Durham post a first innings total of 197 - Brathwaite is the final wicket to fall, trapped lbw on 16. Coughlin 29*.

4:00pm

bryn

*quite literally ;-!

safcluke

Surprised not to see Lyon play.

keenasmustard

There would probably have been a big crowd there this morning hoping to see Jennings bat.

bryn

Hard to tell how many are here when we are all spaced out

tomb

If theres applause there must be at least 5 people there

Response to keenasmustard

It may have been - I just heard the applause - If I've done him out of 2 runs I apologise!

3:36pm

keenasmustard

Cricinfo wrong again. They're saying it was a six.

Four!

Cracking four from Coughlin! He's 19* with the Durham total 169-9.

3:33pm

bryn

Bit more rain

marchy22

Brathwaite a bit of a forgotten man. Hope he takes a few wickets

bryn

Haway Brat5hwaite swing that bat!

Nine down...

Claydon is caught by Klinger off McDermott for 5. Durham 151-9 in the 51st over as Ruel Brathwaite joins Coughlin (6*)

3:20pm

Durham 150

Durham 151-8 in the 50th over, Holland (13-3-32-3) and McDermott (14-5-36-3) are the current attack

3:19pm

tomb

Thats right Bryn, it makes it a little more exciting for me.

chrissafc

Myburgh scoring 34 on a "difficult batting wicket" will send out a message to the selectors

chrissafc

but yes i agree richardson would miss out if mustard was to be available. i asked a question about richardson at the q&a. wasn't that convinced with the answer as i think the lad has earned a play in both the cb40 and the lvcc format. he played a big part in our win vs middlesex

chrissafc

the way cook spoke about mustard, the injury "not brilliant news" - they drained fluid but its swollen again.

bryn

So it was tom b,but you prefer tomb? Gotcha :-)

marchy22

If mustards back next week whats the betting they both miss out to Muchall

chrissafc

myburgh and richardson hit most of those runs

tomb

Its confused me as well, I prefer Tomb without the space

marchy22

61-1 then the next 77 runs for 7 wickets

Update

Bowling change as McDermott returns...Wood was the batsman that was dismissed.

3:06pm

marchy22

New day same old batting problems

keenasmustard

Hang on is it Coughlin or Wood that's gone? Cricinfo says Coughlin.

keenasmustard

Welcome to first class cricket Paul.

Wicket...

Wood is bowled by Holland. Durham 136-8 after 45.1 overs. Mitchell Claydon is the next man in.

3:02pm

We're back!

Covers are off and the players are heading back out there - Durham resume on 136-7, Coughlin and Wood at the crease.

3:00pm

bryn

Tomb,this has puzzled me for a while are you tomb or tom b?

tomb

Cant stand Twitter meself, probly cos I've got no friends to tweet to.....

Latest

Still drizzling here - the groundstaff are poised and ready to remove the covers as and when we can!

2:49pm

bryn

Joey blackwell!

chrissafc

can't imagine cook been amused with players tweeting/retweeting so soon after been dismissed with the bat

tomb

Its a Durham select team vs amother select team, but thanks Chris I forgot we had a game at home. Anonomous comments being removed again re Blackie

keenasmustard

They;ll still be Glamorgan to me.

chrissafc

next sunday? durham play welsh dragons at home

tomb

I see Blackie describes himself as full time rainwatcher and not even part time cricketer. Theres a match on next Sunday at Washington cricket club, anyone know if its a decent ground?

chrissafc

good knock by myburgh as well.

Rain....

We're off for rain...Durham 136-7.

2:42pm

bryn

Few spots of rain in the air

Wicket...

Myburgh is caught by Davis off Coulter-Nile for 34. Durham 136-7.

2:40pm

chrissafc

decent knock by richardson

Durham six down...

Durham 132-6 after Richardson is out lbw to Holland for 21. Mark Wood joins Myburgh (30*)

2:33pm

Response to keenasmustard

Brian is off for the next few weeks for health reasons so Richie has stepped in for us in the meantime.

2:31pm

keenasmustard

Yvette I meant to ask this at the Middlesex game and apologies if someone already has asked this, but why wasn't Brian Hunt scoring in that game?

Bowling change

Coulter-Nile returns for Australia A - Durham 109-5, Myburgh 17* and Richardson 11*

2:03pm

Durham 100

Hundred up for Durham, Myburgh 17* and Richardson 7*. Starc and Holland continue.

1:57pm

We're back!

Play resumes after lunch - Starc continues at the Finchale End, Durham 91-5 with Myburgh and Richardson at the crease.

1:41pm

bryn

Im heading on down,i take it it wouldnt be advisable to wear my tom jones facemask?

BrianT

The damage is fairly near the boundary. With forethought the Mdsx game could have been played on a wicket nearer the pavilion and the damaged area would have been outside of the ropes. We would not then be talking about it now. Just wish we'd had it 30 year ago and I could have gone to see Del Shannon and Roy Orbison.

chrissafc

i'm also not at the game. just passing on comments that the recent concert has left parts of the pitch a mess. shame given the good work the groundstaff put in but keeping the pitch in good condition. money talks though and the club need to host these events to make money

tomb

I think someone will come in for Muchall, maybe Myburgh or Blackwell? Though I've been saying that for a while now.

BrianT

Don't care what the groundstaff think. They are paid to do a job, and do it very well. If more people turned up to watch the cricket then maybe the shows wouldn't be needed. In answer to your next question, no I'm not there at present. Will be along at 4.

Ridgeley

why the humour by pass?

BrianT

There's only a couple of weeks between a good and a bad haircut. Mid August it will be hardly visible. If ground hadn't been so wet it would be barely visible now. Lucky we don't play at Old Trafford every week. Now that is a disgrace.

chrissafc

anyone at the middlesex game will have seen it. spoke to 1 of the groundstaff and they aren't amused with it.

chrissafc

why the raised eyebrow?

Ridgeley

*raises eyebrow*

chrissafc

no. it's clearly visible where the walk out boards were placed on the pitch, it's left a right mess.

Ridgeley

chrissafc did you actually witness tom with a spade messing up the pitch?

chrissafc

agree peter, it will be the same

peter_brent

The fact that he hasn't be registered all seasons suggests that to be a fact. I think we can all work out Cook's top 6 for the next CC game.

Mark

Thanks Yvette

Lunch

Lunch here - Durham 91-5, Myburgh 9* and Richardson 5*. Back shortly!

1:03pm

chrissafc

he was 12th man last friday

tomb

I dont think Jennings was a shoe in for the county team anyway from what Geoff Cook has been saying this season.

chrissafc

the pitch near the county durham stand is a mess thanks to tom jones

Response to Mark

We haven't been given a timescale as of yet.

12:55pm

Latest

Durham 86-5 with Muburgh 9* and Richardson yet to score - Holland and Starc are the current attack.

12:54pm

Mark

How long will it take for Jennings' registration to get sorted out?

peter_brent

Unfortunately we are learning nothing new here and for all those who want Blackwell back in the CC, he has not got any form to suggest he should be. Shame Jennings couldn't play.

Ridgeley

i blame tom jones...

Response to tomb

I'd say there are a few hundred..I think numbers will increase as the day goes on and people leave work early!

12:50pm

Stan Drop

Uh Oh. Looks likes business as usual for this season.

Wicket...

Blackwell is caught behind off Holland's first ball. Durham 75-5. Michael Richardson is the next man in.

12:46pm

tomb

Is anyone there today? Would be meself if it wasnt sandwiched between two county games

Bowling change

Bowling change for Australia A - Jon Holland comes on at the Lumley End. Durham 75-4, Myburgh 4* and Blackwell 0*

12:44pm

tomb

Same story, wicket doesnt do the batsmen any favours. I said on the forum that it might help us stay up as there will be results on it and few draws but got shot down by other forum members.

Wicket...

Durham 75-4 as Stokes is caught by Starc off McDermott for 8. Ian Blackwell joins Myburgh (4*)

12:36pm

Wicket...

Stoneman is caught by Bailey off McDermott for 25. Durham 66-3. The next man in is Johann Myburgh.

12:26pm

tomb

Yet he plunders runs for the second team. My solution, move him to 6 if we keep playing him

chrissafc

average of 9.58

marchy22

Disappointing from Muchall again

tomb

Shame, needed a score.

Wicket...

Coulter-Nile has Muchall caught behind on 11. Durham 61--2 after 18.1 overs. Ben Stokes joins Stoneman (25*)

12:18pm

tomb

Is it the same wicket as last week?

Durham 50

Durham 55-1 in the 16th over, Stoneman 20* and Muchall 10* - McDermott and Coulter-Nile continue.

12:08pm

tomb

Thanks Mark

Mark

Father and son

tomb

Any relation to Craig McDermott, aussie bowler from 80s, 90s?

Mark

He's injured-side strain

marchy22

Harmy not in yorks team today

Wicket...

Singh is out lbw to McDermott for 22. Durham 38-1 as Gordon Muchall joins Stoneman (15*)

11:56am

marchy22

Singh out

After 11 overs

Singh 22* and Stoneman 13 after 11 overs - Durham 37-0. McDermott (5.1-1-17-0) and Coulter-nile (2-1-4-0) continue

11:46am

chrissafc

yeah cook spoke highly of stoneman in the Q&A last week

Bowling change

Durham 29-0 after 8 overs, bowling change for Aus A - Coulter-Nile replaces Starc.

11:35am

tomb

A lot of us just wanted middlesex to wrap the inngs up and knock off the 40 or so runs so we could go home (or to the pub). How wrong we were in the end. Was buzzing, popped over to Ropery lane to watch some of the cricket there as well. Cook said he thinks Stoneman has a great future.

marchy22

I wonder if Durham see stoneman as a future captain of the first team

After 6 overs

Six overs gone, Durham 21-0, Singh 10* and Stoneman 9*

11:25am

Update

Durham 11-0 after 4 overs, Stoneman 5* and Singh 4*. Current Aus A attack is McDermott and Starc

11:17am

chrissafc

amazing turn around in the space of about 7 overs

chrissafc

we were something like 35/7 effectively during the rain

chrissafc

we were sat in the members lounge during the rain and the general feeling was "sooner the better we're put out of our misery". it was tough to watch us struggling. thorp and borthwick then went crazy and got us a decent lead for that wicket. middlesex fans quickly shut up at 0/2

Four!

Rammy Singh off the mark with a boundary! Durham 6-0 after 1.4 overs.

11:07am

tomb

What a contrast to the feeling the previous day just before the rain came

Here we go!

Captain Mark Stoneman and Rammy Singh open the batting for Durham - Starc will bowl the first over

11:00am

marchy22

Proves four day cricket is.still the best

chrissafc

tell you what the atmosphere/support/tension etc at the ground on sunday was great. county cricket at it's very best

marchy22

It was Chris

chrissafc

was that against CLS?

tomb

Thanks for that, shame, was hoping to see Jennings make a claim for a first team place, I think Geoff Cook said that might be the case with him having played first class cricket. What is Coughlins role, bowler?

marchy22

Brilliant result for.Blaydon on Saturday title.is there for the taking

Ridgeley

morning campers!

chrissafc

gutted i cant make any of the 3 days, heres hoping for some good scores

chrissafc

didnt expect this to be on today

marchy22

Is that our batting line up too?

Jennings and Borthwick

Keaton Jennings is absent after a delay to his registration. An interpretation of his status, as he played first class cricket in South Africa last winter, means an interview process is required. Scott Borthwick is rested due to a knee problem.

10:40am

Durham Debutants

Durham CCC's three first class debutants are Paul Coughlin, Johann Myburgh and Rammy Singh - big congratulations to them!

10:37am

Australia A

Australia A: Cowan, Davis, Klinger, Forrest, Bailey, Cooper, Paine, Coulter-Nile, Starc, Holland, McDermott

10:36am

Durham team

Durham: Stoneman (c), Muchall, Singh, Stokes, Myburgh, Richardson, Blackwell, Coughlin, Brat5hwaite, Claydon, Wood

10:35am

tomb

Is it a 96 overs a day match. Just wondering whether its worth popping over after work tomorrow for an hour or two.

Toss result

Durham won the toss and will bat first

10:33am

tomb

Wish I was there today, not a bad side we've put out. Hope Muchall gets a good knock today, he really needs one. Interested to see how Mark Wood does if selected.

via SMS

Good luck to keaton jennings and paul coughlin today, on their first class debuts .

Durham v Australia A
