BrianT

6:18pm

Ridgeley

Non member dogs couldnt really pay cash on the gate as they dont have pockets anyway

roker1973

Latest

Surrey 57-4 with five overs left this evening. They trail by 124 with Burns 25* and Davies 6*. Onions and Stokes are the current attack.

6:13pm

Ridgeley

I dont actually have a dog am just curious :)

Response to Ridgeley

Owners receive a pass for their dog, which they can keep in their own membership book.

6:12pm

Ridgeley

If dogs dont get a membership book how do the turnstile operators know which dog is a member and who has to pay on the gate then?

Response to Ridgeley

Ahead of this game Geoff Cook said that he was up for selction, but they wanted to keep the bowling balance. He was close to playing if Keaton wasn't.

6:10pm

CollingwoodFTM

He has potential to be the next Botham, but could end up as the next David Capel or even Ronnie Iranie. It'll be up to him, he has the talent. I know where I'd hope he ends up.

roker1973

whats gannin on lads we got the upper hand in this game bring it on and get oot this religation mess

Ridgeley

Whys it taken all day to reply to my dog request? Can we also have a vite on whether the club should be more transparant over the Blackwell situation?

stuartp

So open Q, do we regard Stokes as the new Botham or the new Hadlee?

Tynevalleyblackcat

Great stuff this. Can I be greedy and ask for another 2 tonight please??

Response to Ridgeley

We can take a vote and people find them offensive we can request they change them. Also, ddogs don't get a Membership book!

6:05pm

CollingwoodFTM

Well done lads. Keep it up. Ridg, my name is based on when Colly was an ODI player and stands for "For Test Matches.". It was from the BBC cricket forum in the early mid 00s.

BrianT

Roy didn't think he was out. Beautiful evening here. Memo to come via Fence Houses and risk the horse and carts. Picktree roundabout is a joke at 4.30.

Ridgeley

Very selective reply wise

Ian17

Woo hoo, come on!!!

Ed Syers

Stokes, you beast of a man!

Wicket!

And the answer is YES! Roy is out lbw to Stokes for 1. Surrey 49-4!

6:01pm

Ridgeley

???

brandonia

Put yer spoon away Ridge! Ha ha.

Ridgeley

Will you be asking people with football type monikers to change their names ie safc or ftm which frankly i find offensive?

Update

Latest: Surrey 48-3 with 9 overs remaining tonight. Current attack is Thorp/Stokes..can we get another wicket tonight?!

5:56pm

brandonia

Fair one Yvette - I'd rather talk about cricket anyway. Speaking of which - I think this is the most comfortable I've felt all season with regards to following Durham! Good times indeed.

Response to Brandonia

I'm in the process of deleting all the football comments!

5:52pm

Stan Drop

There's one of them for you Marchy. That's a good moment for me to gan on home to watch the Olympics. See you all tomorrer

brandonia

Nice one Dale! 3 run outs in the match now. Strange for a 4-dayer.

brandonia

Any idea why my Steven Fletcher comment got deleted?? It was merely a passing statement - certainly not offensive but admittedly nothing to do with Durham CCC.

Wicket!

Benkenstein runs out De Bruyn on 10. Surrey 47-3!

5:49pm

bryn

Ridgeley

Ed Syers

Stokes is proving himself to be a pretty handy bowler

Tynevalleyblackcat

Looking good. Lets keep them coming.

Wicket!

Wicket third ball for Stokes! Harinath is out lbw for 5. Surrey 27-2.

5:05pm

marchy22

chrissafc

@bryn - roy cropper on twitter is better ha ha

brandonia

marchy22

brandonia

Surrey 21-1 Peter. Trailing by 160.

peter_brent

any cricket going on ?

chrissafc

:)

Ridgeley

Aye and ask Sean if he fancies a mint baileys with Bryn ;)

brandonia

Ask Maria if she fancies a Sailor Jerry and Coke with me at Brandon CC, she'd be an idiot not to take me up on this offer!

chrissafc

contacts :)

Ridgeley

Chrissafc how come you know all these famous folks?

Ridgeley

'you lot' lol ;)

brandonia

Tell me about it. They have a cafe-cum-art gallery..... Weird. Any place where I can't get 3G must be a very depressing place to live.

chrissafc

as is maria

Ridgeley

Aye Brando ..Chrissafc announced that Kirk off Corrie is his relation!

Ridgeley

Some strange folk in Dipton Branders *shudders*

brandonia

Maximo Park on in the car and Surrey wickets falling - bliss. What's this about Corrie? Bored or summit like you lot?!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Hopefully no need for anybody to bat 4th in this game Brandonia :)

Tynevalleyblackcat

Great stuff. Lets have a few more tonight.

brandonia

Just finished work up at Dipton and crossed the border back into civilisation and a phone signal. So, to my delight I notice Benk, Colly, Mustard and Thorp all batted well to get us THREE batting points and a healthy lead! Still work to e done mind. They're capable of doing what we did and remember how tricky batting is fourth at CLS!

One down!

One down! Surrey 17-1 as Ansari is caught by Collingwood off onions for 6.

4:30pm

Ridgeley

Vernon Tomlin is a legend! was gutted when liz did the dirty on him!!

Latest

Surrey 9-0 in their second innings - our current attack is Rushworth and Onions.

4:26pm

bryn

theres danger at the bar flap you know i mean the tall chap dont you fall into the masons arms ~ vernon tomlin

bryn

theres danger at the bar flap you know i mean the tall chap dont you fall into the masons arms ~ vernon tomlin

Stan Drop

Surrey need 181 to avoid an innings defeat.

Ridgeley

Tina off of the Rovers Return is a hpoa!

chrissafc

:)

Ridgeley

Id love a tour of weatherfields cobbled streets chrissafc could you ask your relation if they still do them pls?

chrissafc

no, the person who works in the club shop

Ridgeley

Chrissafc is your relation kirk off of corrie?

Tynevalleyblackcat

Right, grab some bait lads and then some wickets please!!

chrissafc

that will be my relation ha ha

Ridgeley

Is Corries Kirk in the club shop like?

chrissafc

enjoy

BrianT

Off to the ground for last session. Apologies to anyone I've upset. Livens it up though.

bryn

im off to the club show to see if corries kirk is grafting today

Durham post 310

Durham all out for 310 with a lead of 181..now, over to the bowlers!

3:47pm

chrissafc

fair point that brian. will be interesting to take note.

Tynevalleyblackcat

178 run lead should be more than enough, but it would be nice to grab a few more. On the plus side, the match is progressing quickly and the weather looks ok, so the result looks on.

BrianT

Suggesting they may lose one point for minus 3. why did we lose 4 points v Lancs when Ash Prince was going for a stroll between each ball? Remind me of the rule someone please. Or are they different for Lancs?

bryn

discostew??

chrissafc

martin emmerson making a point of the bowling over rate.

Wicket...

Durham 306-9...Onions is caught by Linley. Last man in is Chris Rushworth.

3:41pm

chrissafc

let callum thorp just smash the ball all over now

chrissafc

wicket

Ridgeley

Whats happened to the framed england shirts etc in Austins? Has Harmy took them back....

chrissafc

-3 over rate.

Tynevalleyblackcat

I would rather let them have the extra bonus point and we get some more runs which could help us get the 16 points for the win.

BrianT

Don't think you can deny them a bowling point unless its a genuine declaration to assist in winning the match.

marchy22

It would ridgely

Ridgeley

Well played mussa

chrissafc

dont really want them getting max bowling points.

Ridgeley

Marchy it would be good to get Debauchy the french full back but its dragging on a bit

Wicket...

Durham 303-8 after Mustard is out lbw to Lewis on 46. Graham Onions joins Thorp (30*)

3:32pm

chrissafc

newcastle looked good last night

chrissafc

mustard out lbw

marchy22

It is looking good for Newcastle. Still need a couple more signings

chrissafc

i went to the game ridgeley

Ridgeley

Good 5-1 win for Newcastle last night. Our European preparations are coming along nicely.

marchy22

This is the real Durham we all know and love

chrissafc

Last 10 ovs 50/0 RR 5.00

Ridgeley

Dizzy my head is spinning

stuartp

Still a chance of 350 at this rate.

Durham 300!

We've reached the dizzy heights of 300 - that's another batting point! Durham 300-7, Mustard 46* and Thorp 27*.

3:25pm

Ridgeley

Aparantly Vic Pendleton is all ready engaged. :(

chrissafc

300 up.

Ridgeley

Wooop

chrissafc

get to 300 then stop them getting max bowling points.

BrianT

Yes that's right Fox.

bryn

get thorp opening!!! he the dawg

foxbat

Good work so far by Durham. Also would this be our first batting point of the season?

chrissafc

160 lead now. this is good

chrissafc

:)

Ridgeley

Shop lifting and twocing chris

chrissafc

aye he is,

chrissafc

aye east durham olympics :)

BrianT

Is that Gough ex Durham? Seems to be the right decision in the end.

Stan Drop

And all that without DRS!

BrianT

Given out lbw, square leg umpire said he heard it hit bat first. Unusual to see BMX riders going at that speed without a length of copper pipe under the rider's arm

Ridgeley

Arriving at yours chrissafc?

chrissafc

Australia arriving tonight *chrissafc olympic update*

Noz

To clarify he was given out lbw

Ridgeley

Team GB currently have 22 Golds 13 Silver and 13 Bronze *Ridgeys Olympic Update *

Noz

I thought he got an edge but bizarre!! Got given out, walked half way off, Bunny on his way in and then called back by the umpire!!

BrianT

Mustard given out, walked then called back.

chrissafc

what happened?

BrianT

Thought there had been an outbreak of sportsmanship there. Should have known better with Batty.

chrissafc

nice headache to have for the selectors.

chrissafc

it's harsh on him, but mustard doing well

bryn

a lead of 180 would now be bobbins

chrissafc

i just felt richardson deserved to keep his place in the team. he was excellent vs middlesex

Ridgeley

I heart pauls boutique

marchy22

richardson should have been in as keeper or a specialist batsmen, he deserved to keep a place in the team

Ridgeley

Remember Freddie the dolphin!?

Ridgeley

Chrissafc would you really have selected Richardson ahead of Colonel? Or do you mran just as batsman?

Tynevalleyblackcat

This is going very well so far. Closing in on the next bonus point and every run makes Surrey's task harder.

chrissafc

he was excellent vs middlesex in our 2nd innings. was good to watch

marchy22

thorp is a quality batter, should have scored more runs than he has

Stan Drop

Fifty p'ship in less than ten overs! Well batted lads

bryn

Cheers stan :)

marchy22

a lead of 200 would be even better

chrissafc

lead is over 150 now

marchy22

taylor out for 3 against somerset

chrissafc

i'll go along with that marchy, mustard doing the business and fair play to h im. its very tough on richardson mind

Stan Drop

Pure poetry Bryn!

bryn

swallows are the dolphins of the skies

marchy22

mustard justifying his selection, well in colonel, still feel sorry for richardson

Stan Drop

50 of last 10 overs!! There's a great photo of Colly on Cricinfo.

stuartp

Got to get our skates on if we want 5 batting points (tongue firmly in cheek)

chrissafc

thorp's SR 118.18

chrissafc

going for it here. runs flying off this over

marchy22

woakes has to be in the englands electors minds

chrissafc

93 overs gone. when did we last bat for that long?

Ridgeley

For me the greatest one day final innings of all time at lords eas philip mustards swashbuckling 49 in 07.Fetch!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Which is more than Surrey managed in their first innings!!

chrissafc

lead is up to 130 now

BrianT

Yes Boycott scored 146 v Surrey in the final. Just been reading about it in "The Magnificent Seven" Wouldn't have fancied being captain of that lot! Seven Championships though.

CollingwoodFTM

Tavare was brought into the Ashes side of 81 to be the stable batsman. His knocks at Old Trafford of 69 and 78 were as vital as botham's 118 as he added steel to the England batting line up. He was boring to watch, but his job was not ensure he did not chuck his wicket away.

Ridgeley

Would that have been Boycs epic man of match performance in 1965?

bryn

got binocular couple next to me....why?

BrianT

Sorry Gillette Cup.

BrianT

Boycott did the same in a John Player final, and he wasn't quick.

CollingwoodFTM

I saw Tavare at Folkstone playing for Kent in the John Player Sunday League. He hit a run a ball ton. He rained 6s down on the corrogated roof of the stand. It was like watching Botham bat. Keep it going lads, runs are the vital comodity here.

chrissafc

i think someone mentioned it was moved but not totally sure. this 2nd batting point was crucial. keep it going.

Ridgeley

Quite fancy a 20p Special with Monkeys Blood from Jeffs Ices

BrianT

Well done Phil. We seem to be enjoying a long overdue slice of luck and batting is becoming difficult again. Champion!

chrissafc

good stuff lads

Update

Durham 247-7 with Thorp 1* and Mustard 27* - our lead is 118. Make that 251-7 and a second batting point!

2:39pm

BrianT

With the wicket being Pavillion side of ground, the damaged area shouldn't affect the game. Thought they would have done that for MDSX game but I think the stage may have been moved at last minute because of weather.

chrissafc

money is the name of the game now. the concerts are worth a fortune to clubs now. just rugby at murrayfield, lovely stadium mind

marchy22

haway lads get 50 more

Ridgeley

Do they play cricket at murrayfield? And what was that cheating argentinian doing there?

BrianT

Bet Old Trafford is worst of the lot. Then SOL. Money talks.

chrissafc

aye it doesn't look good. i was at murrayfield (stadium tour) on monday and madonna done the same to their pitc a few weeks back. all looking good again now, hope it's the case for durham as well.

Stan Drop

231/7 Yvette, alwasy the optimist.

Stan Drop

I was at school with Chris Tavaré. You're showing your age stuart!

Wicket...

Durham 231-6 after Borthwick is caught by Burns off Linley for 1.

2:27pm

Ridgeley

Chrissafc i was sat in the county durham stand yesterday and i see what you mean about what tom jones has done!

stuartp

15/1 off the last 10 overs. It is either doing plenty or we traded in Mustard for Chris Tavare

chrissafc

possibly stuart. just as well we're 100 runs ahead :)

stuartp

Suggests that the New ball is still doing enough to give the bowlers a chance.

Ridgeley

Good knock from Colly. Take a bow lad.

chrissafc

lets make sure we get to 250

marchy22

great effort colly

chrissafc

well batted colly, good going

chrissafc

wicket

Wicket...

Collingwood is caught behind off Dernbach for 78. Durham 229-6 as Scott Borthwick joins Mustard (16*).

2:20pm

Ridgeley

Im thinking of proposing to Victoria Pendleton

Lead of 100!

The lead is now 100!

2:18pm

Latest

Durham 227-5 with a lead of 98, Colly 76* and Mustard 16*

2:17pm

marchy22

i think he had an offer from kent when the going was tough and must have jumped ship

stuartp

@ 13 tests per year Cook would do it in 9 years. End of 2021. But there is never any guarantee in life. He could be dropped, he could retire due to injuries, the Test match game may fall apart under the pressure of 20/20.

Ridgeley

Has Poolynorn been kidknapped?

marchy22

havent scored a run for a while, come on lads keep the scoreboard ticking

chrissafc

Durham lead by 97 runs with 5 wickets remaining in the 1st innings

marchy22

so cook will have to play ten more years to get to 200, no guarantees he will be playing for england in 8-10 years

stuartp

And that is 82 tests since 2006. 82 in 6 years (13-14 per year)

Ridgeley

How Yvette you dont seem with today if i may be so cheeky!

stuartp

But Alistair Cook already has 82 tests and he's only 27, so may not be the 1st.

marchy22

i bet you a fiver now he doesnt play 200 tests for england

stuartp

13-14 tests a year for 15 years marchy. They play that many now it is ONLY 2 series at home and 2 away each year and Taylor is young enough to play for 15+ years.

marchy22

i doubt any player will play 200 tests for england, you would have to start at 16 and not miss a game for 20+ years

Stan Drop

Aye aye! Colly and Colonel have cranked up the run rate.

stuartp

Whats the betting on Taylor being the first player to notch up 200 tests for England?

marchy22

i think he will be real class at international level

stuartp

10+ years, maybe 15 if he turns out to be as good as he has looked so far.

marchy22

have surrey took the new ball yvette?

marchy22

aye notts must be chuffed with signing taylor, have him for a half a season and realistically should be an england regular for the next ten years at least

marchy22

rankin coming on 2nd change for warks and he thinks he can force his way into englands test team

stuartp

I think Bell will move up to 4, Taylor at 5 and Bopara at 6.

marchy22

new ball due next over, you know what that means it going to fly to the boundry quicker

marchy22

so who does everyone think will replace kp at 4 in the england test side

Ridgeley

Im that pleased about how well this games going i may well email the club!!!

peter_brent

excellent session. Min 93 runs this one please.

marchy22

Keen to get on with it. I make only twenty to now

We're back!

Back from the break - Durham are 207-5 with Collingwood 62* and Mustard 10*.

1:39pm

Ridgeley

You missing yer home comforts bryn? ;)

bryn

If there was a hot tub here today id die a happy man!

marchy22

yes tough on blackwell

Ridgeley

Id still have selected Blackwell tho....

BrianT

Must be difficult to talk 6 hours a day about cricket, on the radio, without some rubbish coming out from time to time. Enjoying these two though.

Stan Drop

Good session.85 runs and only one wicket. Fine knock from benks. A bit more like the Durham of old. Same again next session please.

marchy22

borthwick is certainly not a tail ender

BrianT

Radio said that if they get one of these out they'll be right into the tail. Not sure if I would class Scotty as a tailender. Also the last three have improved their batting this season and can all get the odd 20 or so. Hope they were listening.

marchy22

another 100 from here would be great

chrissafc

aye, plenty left.

marchy22

and onions

chrissafc

borthwick and thorp also

marchy22

great session, if mustard can do what he is capable of surrey will be way out of the game

chrissafc

well done durham

Lunch

Just the session we needed! Durham 204-5 at lunch with Colly 61* and Mustard 8*.

1:01pm

CollingwoodFTM

Mystique Yvette.

marchy22

nice one stan very funny i like it

Stan Drop

Over optimistic there Yvette!

chrissafc

250? i wish :)

Stan Drop

" Daddy, what's a batting point?" "Well son, when I was your age we used to get them in every game ..."

marchy22

get in lads well played

Batting point

Batting point secured!

12:58pm

Ridgeley

Howay Mussa lad!

marchy22

haway mustard half century from you plz

Ridgeley

Am rustling up a stir fry for me tea the night! *just saying*

Tynevalleyblackcat

First target, lets get to that first bonus point without losing another wicket.

chrissafc

dig in lads, let's get a good lead

chrissafc

Durham lead by 61 runs with 5 wickets remaining in the 1st innings

Wicket...

Benkenstein is bowled by Dernbach on 69. Durham 190-5 with a lead of 61.

12:43pm

chrissafc

massive boost if we can win this game. in a good position at the moment

Ridgeley

I feel a win here would give the chaps the momentum and inspiration to stay up for sure

marchy22

worcs started well aginst warks

BrianT

So am I Chris. If progress continues we could be off the bottom by Friday with Worcs at home to look forward to. Supposed to have had problems yesterday with SMS so switched off.

Ridgeley

Any feedback on my dog membership enquiry?

chrissafc

Record 5th wicket stand for @DurhamCricket v @Surreyccc in champs 121, beats previous of 114 with Benks and Mustard.

chrissafc

i assume sms must be down as "via sms" has been quiet

chrissafc

chuffed with how this game is going, couldn't be happy.

chrissafc

i'm supporting the team as much as work allows me. if people dont like my opinion then tough.

BrianT

Yes, your comments are always uplifting.

Update

Durham 186-4 after 69.3 overs, Colly 55* and Benks 65*.

12:37pm

marchy22

you will see looking back me and chris have been supporting the lads as we always do but we are also allowed to discuss what the furure holds for durham

Ridgeley

Aapierre 'you lot' ????????

Ridgeley

Yvette re dog membership does that come with an actual members book like the human one?

aapierre

I tend to think BrianT is asking you lot to simply keep it positive and support their efforts as opposed to spending negative energy complaining that this one or that one isn't good enough. It seems a fair request to me

Ridgeley

What a beautiful day im defo feeling the love today dudes!!!

marchy22

does anyone know if jennings has a professional contract with the club?

chrissafc

aye as always

marchy22

i think thats what he is saying, we cant have an opinion

chrissafc

we are supporting the players having said well done/superb

chrissafc

give what a rest? having an opinion?

BrianT

Give it a rest lads. Just support the players that are on the pitch. Colly was a target not so long ago!

Ridgeley

A lead of 250 would do this cowboy very nicely

chrissafc

excellent colly

marchy22

so would i chris the lad has done brilliantly when in the team, cant see what mustard has done to get straight back in, well played colly

Ridgeley

Woop well done colly lad!!

Colly 50

Colly raises his bat as he reaches fifty! Durham 178-4 with a lead now of 49.

12:21pm

chrissafc

richardson i would have as first choice wicket keeper at present. not a popular opinion and many will disagree but fair do

marchy22

beat me to it chris lol

chrissafc

Durham 174/4

marchy22

wood looks good, coughlin seems quite a good prospect at 18 too, jennings has be in the team the rest of the season and from the start of the next and find a place for richardson or we will lose him

Ridgeley

Yvette whats the scores on the doors princess?

chrissafc

thats 1st innings marchy i think thats what emmo said on radio nufc yesterday

stuartp

It is a good mix of youth and experience at the moment. Could do with the next couple of Durham quick bowlers rolling off the production line though.

marchy22

average score at the riverside this year 122

chrissafc

only 4 batting points at the riverside this season and all those came in 1 game

chrissafc

agreed

Tynevalleyblackcat

Great start today so far. Now lets get some batting points on the board and bat them out of the game. Batting points have been as rare as rocking deposits stuff this season.

marchy22

durham are in need of a change but the change has to be built around these two quality pros

chrissafc

more proof that this puts the "age" excuse to bed

marchy22

100 partnership, fantastic colly and benks

marchy22

28 and he thinks he has serious ambition to play test cricket for england, does he not realise how many bowlers would be ahead of him, at least ten

marchy22

28 and he thinks he has serious ambition to play test cricket for england, does he not realise how many bowlers would be ahead of him, at least ten

CollingwoodFTM

How old will Rankine be in 2020?

marchy22

boyd ranking retiring from ireland after the 2020 world cup citing ambitions to play test cricket for england, is he being serious lol

marchy22

grind them down and let mustard borthwick and thorp go nuts when they come in

Durham 150

Fifty until the first batting point folks!

12:01pm

CollingwoodFTM

Keep on going lads.

Stan Drop

Oodles of time so bat all day if we can.

Update

Durham 149-4, leading by 20 with Benks 55* and Colly 32*

11:52am

stuartp

Any lead is good, batting points are a bonus, but the win in this game is essential for Durham.

peter_brent

250 minimum

marchy22

Well in benks. What should we be looking at for our first innings score

chrissafc

superb

Benkenstein 50!

That's fifty for Dale Benkenstein! Great stuff.

11:27am

Lead..

We're now establishing our lead! Durham 134-4, Colly 23* and Benks 49*

11:22am

Stan Drop

G'day all! 132/4. Moving slightly ahead now but still several more laps to go before we can claim gold.

peter_brent

big session this.

Play begins!

Day two begins, Durham 119-4, trailing by 10 with Collingwood and Benkenstein in the middle.

10:59am
