6:27pm

brandonia

Yvette, I seem to have somehow been put on the full website on my phone and can't find the mobile button...... Where is it?? *embarrassed* !

brandonia

No ball - we'll take that!

brandonia

50 partnership - just what the doctor ordered. Now see us through to the close gents.

Ha'way lads. See us through to the close!

Update

6:01pm

brandonia

Four down to Fine Leg for DB.

brandonia

I'd love to see these two survive until the Close. Ten overs left, even of they only score 10 more runs I'd be happy. One thing I must add is I do not want a night-watchman in!

bryn

Ridge in austins in the chair...place your orders

Durham 79-4, trailing Surrey's first innings score by 50. Twelve overs remain tonight.

5:47pm

brandonia

Colly just survived a massive lbw shout.

brandonia

Four for Benk, great shot off the back foot. 74-4.

brandonia

Edge through the slips for 4. Sounds very tricky out there.

brandonia

You really couldn't make up just how difficult batting has been at Durham this season. I'm still hopeful of us getting to 200 like but maybe I should be thankful of 150 looking at the current game situation.

marchy22

This is where we need Blackwell

raydetmold

right lets dig in now , lets occupy the crease for the next 10 overs , not even attempt to score any runs and then get out , brainless cricket in low scoring games

marchy22

The batters backing up the Bowlers good work again I see. Pathetic

Wicket...

Stokes is caught off Linley for 6. Durham 58-4 in the 26th over.

5:13pm

BrianT

Do runouts count towards the total wickets when the pitch inspector may be called?

raydetmold

just seen young Jennings is South african , captained there under 19 side in England last year

brandonia

Shhhhhhhh. I'll be happier when they're both on unbeaten 50's!

brandonia

Shhhhhhhh. I'll be happier when they're both on unbeaten 50's!

Direct hit

Durham 56-3 after a direct hit sees Jennings run out on 23.

5:01pm

safcluke

Add Singh into that aswell Stuart.

raydetmold

good lad young Jennings , 2 4s in one over , keep it going

stuartp

2 young lads 20 and 21 years old respectively. The future of the Durham batting line up is looking good.

Durham 50

Fifty up for Durham! Stokes is 4* and Jennings 19*...

4:54pm

Stan Drop

Durham's bright hopes for the future at the crease. Dig in lads.

raydetmold

come on Durham this would be a massive win

safcluke

Just need to dig in and try and get to the close no more than 4 down. Still loads of time left.

Latest

Durham 41-2 after 16 overs, Stokes 2* and Jennings 12*. Lewis and de Bruyn are the bowlers.

4:40pm

brandonia

Looks like yet another low scoring game. Any lead could be crucial but we must still strive for batting bonus points! Can anyone at the game give me hope that it's a flat track and we just bowled like Trojans?!!

raydetmold

just a matter of time , jesus christ

Wicket...

Durham 37-2 after Smith is caught by Roy off de Bruyn for 15. Ben Stokes joins Jennings (12*).

4:29pm

We're back!

We're back after the break - - Jennings up to double figures. Durham 37-1.

4:24pm

raydetmold

11 runs off the last 10 overs pressure building all the time , lets stay positive for god sake

Stan Drop

That's better!

bryn

happy bday dean x

Tea Time

Tea time here - Durham 32-1, Smith 15* and Jennings

4:02pm

Stan Drop

three and a half consecutive maidens. Run rate slowing, but better that than losing wickets. What is the sign for Yvette?

Stan Drop

BBC weather reckons fine and dry for the whole match! That's a first this season! Let's make the most of it.

chrissafc

heavy rain down here in boro, hope it's not moving towards cls

Latest

Durham 30-1 after 9 overs, Smith 14* and Jennings 9*. Dernbach and Linley are the current attack.

3:44pm

BrianT

If you discount the Oval match where nobody bowled a ball, we have maximum bowling points. An area where the rules might be looked at!

raydetmold

takes me back to Gower at edgebaston on his debut for England , off the mark first ball with a 4

Four!

Jennings is off the mark with a four!

3:18pm

safcluke

Hope Jennings scores some runs.

Wicket...

Durham 10-1, Stoneman is caught by Ansari off Dernbach for 6. Keaton Jennings joins Smith (4*).

3:17pm

Stan Drop

What did I do?

chrissafc

really hope jennings gets a big score

Ridgeley

Bugger

Stan Drop

Come on Durham, no more groundhog day please. max batting points to go with our max bowling points would be great. BTW, despite propping up the table, only one county (Warks) has more bowling points than us. A tribute to our attack given the rubbish weather we've had.

Ridgeley

Liquid cricket!

chrissafc

he'd be one of the first names on my team sheet at present

BrianT

Of course he did well in that game, and in every other game I've seen him play.

chrissafc

30 runs and 6 catches.

chrissafc

the circumstances we find ourselves in is down to the regular players. richardson performed very well in a game we won vs middlesex

BrianT

I don't think he should be in the team before Mustard, in the circumstances we find ourselves in. And why just praise the bowlers, there were catches and a run out.

marchy22

So u think Richardson shouldn't be in the team Brian. Andc its been a brilliant display by the Bowlers AGAIN

Durham innings

The Durham innings begins! Will Smith and Mark Stoneman are out there...Dernbach to bowl.

3:08pm

BrianT

On a day when the team have done better than on any other opening day this season it surprises me that players not in the team are being mentioned so frequently instead of players that are in the team.

chrissafc

agree. he'll be off

marchy22

I can't see us hanging on to him. I don't see what mustard has done this season to earn an instant recall

chrissafc

agreed marchy, treatment of that lad is shocking

marchy22

I have to say Richardson being dropped is a disgrace

chrissafc

It was excellent to have Rory Hamilton-Brown back in the team for our most recent CB40 game but he is not quite ready yet for Championship cricket. He will play for the Second XI and continue to train this week ahead of our next CB40 game against Durham on Saturday.â

peter_brent

Think RHB is playing in a 2nd XI game.

safcluke

Where's RHB? I thought he was back in the picture now?

chrissafc

good effort by the bowlers. crazy decision to bat first

raydetmold

fantastic , come on the batsman dont let us down again , play positive from the start

marchy22

Let's be 150-3 at the close

BrianT

Can't believe they decided to bat. Do they never read the papers? Brilliant performance.

All out!

Surrey all out for 129 as Stokes dismisses Linley for 4.

2:58pm

CollingwoodFTM

Polish 'em off lads.

Wicket!

That's nine down! Thorp gets in on the act now, Lewis is caught by Borthwick for 23. Surrey 117-9.

2:51pm

chrissafc

he'd replace broad if you believe some on here the other day who were saying broad isnt good enough

marchy22

Nine down

safcluke

Swann will be back in so you would think Finn will sit it out. Absolutely no point of Onions going down to Lords when we have a big game.

peter_brent

That is the issue he won't be in the test team but he will be in the squad. Playing neither for Durham or England next week.

safcluke

Shouldn't be in the test team at the moment should I say before I get slammed.

safcluke

Onions shouldn't be in the test team. As much as he's a cracking bowler, who does he replace?

Eight down!

Ben Stokes calims his third wicket! Batty is caught by Thorp on 11. Surrey 117-8.

2:41pm

Bowling change

An immediate change at the Finchale End too, Ben Stokes returns.

2:38pm

BrianT

I would like the tail to score a moderate number of runs because it might inducate that the pitch is getting easier for us to bat on. Wouldn't that be a nice change?

marchy22

Letting the tail wag. Come on

Bowling change

A return for Callum Thorp for the 44th over. Surrey 109-7

2:35pm

Surrey 100

Hundred up for Surrey, Lewis 12* and Batty 6*.

2:29pm

peter_brent

KP says it's not about money. Reckon that's right it's about his ego.

chrissafc

he's a joke KP

Stan Drop

He'll be needed to bat imstead of KP ;-)))

peter_brent

I would like to thank the ECB for selecting the Lions team without any Durham players and whilst I am on he subject don't pick Onions in the next test squad if you have no intentions of playing him.

CollingwoodFTM

Keep going lads.

marchy22

Let's hope our batsmen shine and we may only need to bat once in this match

chrissafc

what a strange decision to bat first on that wicket

Response to marchy22

Yes, I do - sorry!

2:07pm

marchy22

You mean 7 yvette?

Wicket!

Surrey 80-6! Davies is caught by Borthwick off Rushworth for 12.

2:06pm

Wicket!

That's a wicket for Onions! Spriegel is caught behind on 1. Surrey 80-6!

2:00pm

Stan Drop

Gold and bronze for the Brownlee brothers in Olympic triathlon. I wonder if they can bat as well?

Stan Drop

Wooo Hooo! Shows the morale boost that beating Aussies can give!

Surrey 65/5

Spriegel the new man in, 67/5. Chris Rushworth continues.

1:43pm

Bowled him!

Rushworth strikes! bowling Harinaths off stump for 28! Great start after lunch!

1:42pm

Bowling change

1:01pm

raydetmold

12:41pm

chrissafc

dalesgirl

Ridgley pop and say hello

Ridgeley

Great start stokes is on fire. Chrissafc u still in edinburgh fleshpots?

chrissafc

great start by the way, good luck to jennings, finally glad to see a long overdue change at number 3

chrissafc

have we signed myburgh just to play in the pointless pro 40 games?

BrianT

Well done to the players who are out there. Support the team.

Ridgeley

Daleslass i kna everything lol

longers

Real Ale Tent :)

longers

CollingwoodFTM

CollingwoodFTM

Real Ale Tent:-) Measure twice, cut once.

raydetmold

fantastic start

Wicket!

Stokes again! De Bruyn is out lbw. Surrey 45-3.

12:29pm

bryn

No,just fake ones :-)

CollingwoodFTM

Keep going lads. A quick question, is there a real tent at the Riverside these days? I might pop along in a fortnight when I am back up. But it'll probably rain, as usual.

dalesgirl

Ridgely how do you know what my t shirt says ?

raydetmold

A very good morning everybody from a sunny Germany

Wicket!

Surrey 41-2 after Stokes bowls Burns on 14!

12:21pm

chrissafc

it's a disgrace richardson has been dropped. disgusting

Latest

Surrey 35-1 after 18 overs, Burns 10* and Harinath 15*

12:12pm

Tom87

I find it absolutely astounding that Blackie isnât playing, we need our best players playing the position we are in. What does everyone think of the latest Pietersen fiasco?

Ridgeley

Id of played blacky.

Stan Drop

Bryn, given our relative disarray at the moment I would say that it is as important to "blood" some of the talent from 2nd XI and see what they can do with a view to the medium term future. Good luck to Jennings. James taylor had a good Test dayboo.

Ridgeley

Cans of stella not a lass called stella obv

Ridgeley

In the words of dalesgirls tshirt cricket is life :) just arrived at the ground with me stella!

Bowling update

Ben Stokes replaces Onions the following over - Surrey 28-1.

11:46am

Mackem_Dave

Good luck to the young lad Keaton Jennings on his debut. I dont watch the 2nd's so I don't know what his style is or what his stats are. Can anyone help out?

bryn

id have played him instead of jennings and moved everyone up a notch we need his experience at this point of season imo

safcluke

Surprised Ansari opened the batting but no complaints. Harinath is a sound player too.

Response to Stan Drop

Apologies, we have an issue with the SMS feature so had to leave it off so the technical people coudl investigate. SMS has been disabled for the time being to allow for LMC to open

11:25am

Stan Drop

Cool typing too!

Stan Drop

Great start. Perhaps bryn, he had a very good game against the Aussies but who would you have left out for him? He perhapos has a bit more grounfd tocatch up before he becomes an automatic choice again.

Wicket!

Rushworth gets the first wicket! Ansari is caught behind on 1. Surrey 6-1 after 5.3 overs.

11:20am

Stan Drop

Hi Yvette. A bit unfair to open LMC early then disable it so us early birds (and time travellers, but I think that raydetmold and I are the only ones) cant post early.

Update

Surrey 6-0 after 4.3 overs, two maidens for Onions and one for Rushworth.

11:16am

bryn

got to feel for blackie :-(

After 2 overs
