Borthwick still on.

brandonia

61 needed off 9 overs.

CollingwoodFTM

Come on lads.

Tristan

oh aye he could but it wont turn as much. more bounce though. i would take the new ball and get bunny & borthwick bowling. i was just saying...

BrianT

Borthwick could bowl with the new ball. However, Collingwood is a conservative captain.

brandonia

Wood bowling still. No word on the new nut.

foxbat

I hate yet love the games that are tense like this one is turning out to be. Come on Durham!

Tristan

tricky now, new ball but the old ball is working for borthwick

The details

Right, we need 3 wickets in 10.1 overs for the win. Notts need 63 runs. Come on Durham!

5:38pm

brandonia

New ball due but I'd keep Scotty on for maybe 1 more.

Mark

Come on Durham!!

Wicket!

Notss 303-7! White is caught by Stoneman off Borthwick for 8. Notts 303-6, they still need 63 runs.

brandonia

69 needed off 12, 4 wickets left.

brandonia

73 needed off 13, 4 wickets left.

Tristan

@brandy drop the anchor? wishful thinking imo and would hurt our chances too, we still hunt the win!

marchy22

170 for the first wicket then 120-6, the first wicket taking so long to get killed any chances we had

brandonia

Dave Bracegirdle is always good crack, just a shame Marty isn't with him!

BrianT

You can question the radio comms objectivity but their enthusiasm and optimism can't be questioned. Enjoyed them.

brandonia

I think Notts may drop the anchor now.....

The stats

Here's the stats...Notts 286-6, they need 78 in 14.3 overs...we're hunting for 4 wickets. Come on Durham!

5:22pm

raydetmold

Afternoon everybody , come on Durham

Mark

Well done Scotty!

Wicket!

Wicket! Notts six down! Franks os caught by Thorp off Borthwick for 13. Come on Durham!

5:20pm

Tristan

great news!

Tristan

don't think there is no chance marchy, agree its going to be tight but it always was - i thought it was going to be a low scoring match that ended close, but it looks more like a high scoring game that goes to the wire. still in it, come on durham!

brandonia

GET IN!! Franks gone!

marchy22

notts just setting themselves up for a 6 over slog at the end

Latest

Notts 287-5, requiring 79 runs from 16 overs. Wood continues.

5:15pm

brandonia

Broad bowling right arm dross in the Test.

marchy22

that will go to the fence faster

brandonia

New ball due in 9 overs.

Bowling change

Mark Wood returns, this time from the Media Centre End. Notts need 89 from 19.4 overs. Their run rate is lowering gradually though.

5:01pm

marchy22

somehow got to salvage a draw

marchy22

we have no chance now

Double Bowling Change

Scott Borthwick comes back into play. Notts 271-5, trailing by 95.

4:49pm

Bowling change

A change in the attack, a return for Graham Onions.

4:45pm

Latest

One hundred runs required in 24.1 overs - we are going for the 5 wickets!

4:43pm

marchy22

kallis 3 matches 5 innings at lords and has scored 23 runs

Mark

Yes, I thought the two captains might have tried to set something up but I suppose neither one was prepared to lose to relegation rival.

BrianT

Same applies at the Oval today. On the other hand, what a waste of time at Worcester after all of the time lost to rain.

Mark

scores not scored*

Mark

I agree Brian, if any team scored over 350 in the last innings then they deserve to win. It's in the balance now but whatever happens all credit to the players for not getting downhearted after that massive opening stand.

BrianT

If I was a team with Franks and Mullaney as the last two recognised batsmen, 100 still to win, I wouldn't be as smug as the commentators. However, you have to admire the effort today from both teams, proper cricket!

marchy22

get onions on man

marchy22

if we get 2 more cheaply before 5 i might start believing

Mark

Agreed Yvette, it's obviously a good pitch for batting but the bowlers have stuck to their task. Franks showed how dangerous he can be the other day but he is an attacking player so with a bit of luck will offer early chance. Come on Durham!

harmy

mullaney is the key get him out and we should do it

marchy22

franks next we all remember what he did in the first innings

auldtimer

This games not lost yet, the Notts fans r starting to panick.

foxbat

That's a very important wicket. Read can do quite a bit of damage if he hangs around for long enough.

marchy22

lol brandinia

brandonia

Read c Marchy b Brandonia 8. Good stuff Marchy.

marchy22

smith out in the test

Update

Tremendous effort here today, the wickets haven't come as quickly as we would have liked...but they are coming! Keep the faith!

4:28pm

Mark

Yes!

Wicket!

Wicket! Notts 258-5 after Wood bowls Read for 8.

4:28pm

marchy22

you couldnt be more right brandonia, right back in the relegation mire now

brandonia

This day has been a disaster.

marchy22

onions needs to bowl non stop from one end now

harmy

116 from 31 overs

marchy22

we lost this game by taking so long to take the 1st wicket

auldtimer

Disgusting from Hales the way he showed his displeasure at being out.

marchy22

less than 4 an over, they dont even need to take risks

Update

So, here's how things stand. Notts need 118 in 32.1 overs. Mullaney 26* and Read 0* are at the crease. We need 6 wickets...come on Durham!

4:11pm

Mark

Come on Durham!

CollingwoodFTM

Could get tense here.

marchy22

read next man in, he will score more than a run a ball

BrianT

cruising

Wicket!

Hales is out lbw to Wood for 101! Notts four down.

4:10pm

BrianT

gerrin

marchy22

in total cruise control

harmy

245-3

marchy22

we need a hat trick before it gets less than 100

harmy

we need to get 1 before it gets less than 100

marchy22

8 runs in the first 4 mins

harmy

238-3

Bowling update

Chris Rushworth returns at the Media Centre end.

4:03pm

Mark

That's unfortunate

harmy

surrey win

Mark

Well played now let's get rid of him!

marchy22

read next in, he wont fail twice

Hales 100

Hales gets his hundred - Notts 233-3...

4:02pm

harmy

hales is the key player we need to get him out

We're back!

The final session begins...Mark Wood to open the bowling at the Pavilion End. Notts 230-3, 136 behind.

3:59pm

Mark

Definitely still in it, obviously a very flat pitch but they still need a lot of runs.

harmy

notts will win probably off the last over of the day!

foxbat

Steady people, this obviously isn't the situation we expected but I'm still confident that we'll draw the game.

auldtimer

A couple of quick wkts after tea and we're back in this.

marchy22

i wasnt gonna mention that, dont wanna jinx it

BrianT

Thriller at the Oval

Tea

Tea time here - Notts 230-3, trailing by 136. Big session to come!

3:43pm

marchy22

we have to take 7 wickets in one session for less than 136 runs, never gonna happen

marchy22

giving people false hope with that wicket icon

Mark

These 2 will have to play themselves in again after tea so always a fair chance we'll get an early wicket.

marchy22

4.18 more than enough

Mark

What's the run rate now? Can't get cricinfo working.

marchy22

notts playing it safe till tea then will finish it off in the last session

Mark

Come on Woody, let's have another wicket quickly

Bowling change

Mark Wood replaces Borthwick for the 52nd over. Notts 212-3, 154 behind.

3:26pm

Mark

Brilliant well done Bunny!

Three down!

Voges is caught behind off Onions for 2. Notts 212-3! Come on Durham!

3:21pm

marchy22

rr 4.21

marchy22

voges, read, franks, they wont be getting jittery

Jakespin

If any team can do this we can - best bowling side in the division! Enough negativity - come on Durham!!

Mark

Just 8 wicket taking balls needed now. If Hales gets out they might start to get jittery.

Bowling change

Onions returns..Notts 200-2 requiring 166. We CAN do this!

3:12pm

Mark

Come on Durham!

Wicket!

Lumb had been looking twitchy facing Borthwick..and he's caught by Wood for 16. Notts 2 down!

3:09pm

Bowling change

Scott Borthwick returns at the Pavilion End for the 48th over. 43 overs remain today. It's worth noting we bowled them all out in 42.3 overs in the first innings!

3:07pm

Appeal

LBW appeal against Lumb off Rushworth but its not given. Notts 198-1, trailing by 168.

3:06pm

marchy22

get thorp off

marchy22

rr 4.17

marchy22

hat trick required now

marchy22

current rr 4.12 more than good enough

marchy22

not that they are lumb on 9 from 11, that wickets changed nothing

marchy22

they can afford to go along at 2.5 3 runs an over till tea

Mark

If we could just get Hales out and have 2 new batsmen in.

marchy22

they have too many wickets in the bank

Mark

If we can somehow build some pressure and slow the scoring they will have to start taking chances. Easier said than done though is there's nothing in pitch for bowlers. First thing is to somehow get another wicket very quickly.

marchy22

we need 9 wickets in 2 hours and 50 mins play, that many wickets dont fall that fast very often, we needed at least 5 wickets at this stage

Mark

Often when a wicket goes after a big partnership another goes quickly. That's what we need here.

marchy22

i will give you 10/1 on the durham win

manurule175

Durham win.

marchy22

woo hoo, too little too late

Mark

There you go marchy!

Wicket!

Hooray! Notts 168-1 after Wessels is caught by Thorp off Rushworth on 98.

2:43pm

marchy22

give us 1 wicket something to cheer about at least

Mark

True, I wasn't entirely serious-we should beat them but any team can beat any other in this division. Weather could also play a big part in the last few matches.

marchy22

they are nearly half way there and we havent took 1 wicket

Latest

Notts 168 without loss...198 to the target for them. We're after the wickets....and quickly!

2:40pm

marchy22

u cant guarantee us a win next week

Mark

We'll beat them next week, don't worry. Lancs have us to play as well as Surrey on that dodgy pitch at Liverpool so anything could happen in those two matches-might as well toss a coin to decide who wins.

marchy22

worcs have a game in hand

Mark

Lancs & Worcester heading for draw.

BrianT

Commentators are being very partisan.

marchy22

thorp isnt bowling well

marchy22

colly give urself a bowl or benks

marchy22

surrey have pretty much won

Tristan

england all out. now for a massive wicket taking spree!! haway teh lads!

Mark

True, just need a bit of luck or a brilliant ball/piece of fielding to get the first one. Still lots of runs needed.

marchy22

you should be 1 brings 2 etc

Mark

Not as confident as I was but still hopeful!

marchy22

45 mins gone after lunch mark, still feeling confident

Bowling change

Callum Thorp returns for the 38th over, at the Pavilion End. Let's start the spell with a wicket please!

2:23pm

marchy22

no sweat we have the new cherry to take in 44 overs

150 partnership

The Notts opening partnership reaches 150- they still need 216 from 53.1 overs. Rushworth and Borthwick are the current attack.

2:22pm

BrianT

Hang on, I'm confused.

marchy22

maybe but they will all be skittled after that

Tristan

hales & wessels both set for big hundreds here

Tristan

can't agree marchy, notts will walk this

marchy22

they will be skittled for 250

BrianT

That's the spirit

marchy22

dont sweat all it takes isn 10 balls to take the 10 wickets, we are still in charge here

CollingwoodFTM

Haway Rushy.

marchy22

definitely still win this like

Hales 50

Fifty up for Alex Hales - Notts 134-0, 232 required. Chris Rushworth returns.

2:11pm

marchy22

we lose this and we are right back in the mire, worcs win their game in hand and we are back in the bottom 2

marchy22

their bowlers took wickets even its flat so should ours be seeing we having the better bowling line up

Mark

Obviously I didn't mean we'd bowl them out in 10 consecutive deliveries! We just need 10 wicket taking balls before they reach the target. Even if Notts win there can't be any complaints-if the pitch is flat there's nothing the bowlers can do.

Tristan

dont take it to heart mark. -whispers- marchy is just going for the commentators curse

marchy22

yeah cos we will bowl them out in 10 balls, they have set the platform for victory

CollingwoodFTM

Good luck lads.

Mark

Still in the balance-just takes 10 balls to bowl them out!

marchy22

ur joking arent you mark, we have no chance of winning, they are cruising and taking the mick

Mark

Definitely time for a wicket!

Latest

Notts 114-0, trailing by 252, Hales 39* and Wessels 76*

1:51pm

Bowling update

Scott Borthwick resumes at the Pavilion End - Notts 94-0.

1:39pm

Second session

The second session begins...come on Durham!

1:37pm

BrianT

Sparkly pink sweater, blonde highlights, earing....... International superstar. Somebody should have a word!

Tristan

runs on the board are worth more... yesterday morning a lead of 272 looked enough to win with and thats what we still have. game on!

Mark

I'd still rather be in our position-just takes 10 balls to bowl them out! If we don't get a wicket in first 45 mins after lunch I'll start to worry!

harmy

we need a minimum 4 wickets before tea to have a small chance. 3 days of top class stuff and in the space of 2 hours the pendulum has swung

BrianT

Yours inspirational posts keep me going.

marchy22

136 a session or 5 wickets a session i know which one i would rather be trying to get and it wouldnt be the wickets

Tristan

i dont think the draw is possible. neither team want it, either team could win but i doubt it will be a draw

Lunch

Lunch at Trent Bridge, Notts 94-0, Wessels 66* and Hales 28*. They trail by 272.

1:01pm

Appeal

Big lbw appeal from Onions against Wessels...denied. Keep going guys!

1:00pm

marchy22

how wont they get near, they are up with the rate and have all ten wickets remaining

marchy22

notts victory

BrianT

Notts going well which confirms the sense of limiting the number of overs available to them to reach target. Don't think they'll get near. 50:50 win or draw.

harmy

the draw is out the equation.

Tristan

good time for a wicket. seemed to be a fair amount of turn yesterday when scotty was got out. guess they had a roller out on it but lets hope we can get the ball doing something

Response to Tristan

Well, that's very nice of them. There was a little bit but couldn't see lots...I'm not directly behind the bowlers arm though. Onions returns for a spell before lunch.

12:52pm

Tristan

did scotty get much turn from his over yvette? you've just been called 'the lovely yvette' by notts comms team

Tristan

dont know i can't see from here

marchy22

have we even looked like taking a wicket yet?

Tristan

shame on you marchy, ye of little faith

harmy

wish I had your optimism

Update

Lunch is at 1pm. Keep the faith folks...this is still do-able!

12:46pm

marchy22

we arent going to win this now

harmy

is lunch at 1?

Tristan

good good, hope for some turn

Bowling change

Scott Borthwick comes on at the Pavilion End for the 20th over. Notts 75-0.

12:41pm

marchy22

bairstow out on 95

marchy22

thorp going for nearly 6 an over, we have no control

marchy22

rr 4.03

Wessels 50

Fifty for Wessels - Notts 71-0, trailing by 295. Wood and Thorp continue. Come on Durham!

12:34pm

Tristan

time to get superscotty on!

harmy

not looking good

marchy22

notts rr 3.94

brandonia

Disastrous this!

marchy22

another four

BrianT

Calm down.

marchy22

we havent bowled a single maiden, we need to slow their scoring down

Latest

Notts 57-0, Hales 21* and Wessels 36*...a wicket must be in the pipeline!

12:26pm

marchy22

notts are cruising now

Tynevalleyblackcat

Middlesex 7 down. So that's a big hual of points heading Surrey's way.

harmy

if onions had stayed at lords this match would of been over yesterday

marchy22

i bet if notts were only chasing 150ish we would have them 3 or 4 down by now

Tynevalleyblackcat

Middlesex 6 down.

CollingwoodFTM

Come on lads.

Update

Notts 40-0 after 12.3 overs

12:16pm

marchy22

plenty wickets falling around the country, we need them to start falling here

harmy

are notts still 13/2?

marchy22

cant let these two set up read lumb and voges

Tristan

*ive

keenasmustard

Notts are keeping up with the rate here. Could do with a quick wicket or two.

Tristan

if just switched volume to mute this game and listen to lords. hopefully that will swing momentum in our favour

harmy

wicket at lords

marchy22

we need a wicket NOW

Tristan

spin spin spin spin spin spin spin spin

Bowling change

A change at the Pavilion End too - Callum Thorp takes the ball. Notts 38-0.

12:11pm

Tristan

if they lose they will finish mid table. if they win they might win the title - what is the point in not risking it?

Tristan

they will be going for the win until theyre all out imo

harmy

if hales and wessels are still there at lunch they will go for the win

Tristan

bit worried all that time with england has caused collingwood to forget about leg spin ;)

marchy22

notts started well

Tristan

aye we really need to win this won - no way of kknowing how the match at liverpool will go

Bowling change

Mark Wood comes into the attack for the 11th over. Notts 36-0.

12:07pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Middlesex 5 down. Looks like Surrey are going to win.

harmy

so 338 from 81 overs

Update

After 8.5 overs, Notts 27-0

12:01pm

Tristan

would like borthwick to be given a go before lunch

Tristan

wessels bat exploded nearly stumping him apparently

marchy22

have we had any near chances

Tristan

hard to say how many we need but a few would be nice. we dont need any - we could get all 10 in the evening session - but 2-3 would remove alot of their confidence going into the break

keenasmustard

I'd say we need 3 at lunch.

marchy22

more than 1 before lunch

harmy

we need at least one wicket before lunch!!

Update

Notts 18-0 after 6.2 overs

11:50am

brandonia

18-0

brandonia

18-0

harmy

what's the score?

marchy22

lets get this wicket icon going yvette please

chinesecut

His confidence will be through the roof at the minute. Cisse 20-1 to be pl top scorer

brandonia

Tall order to take 6 wickets in the second innings.

marchy22

ill have a 10er on it

chinesecut

I will take that. Put me a tenner on.

brandonia

I'll give you 25-1.

chinesecut

I wonder what the odds are for onions getting 15 wickets in the match?

Tristan

if you say so franrk

Frankjw

Tristran- as soon as they lose a wicket or 2 they will defend

Update

Notts 12-0 after 4 overs...Onions and Rushworth continue

11:40am

marchy22

lets have a wicket lads

Tristan

@frankjw - why? 4 an over easily winnable and they are fighting for a championship!

marchy22

prior out 1st ball with the new ball

brandonia

Prior out to the first ball with the new nut.

Bowling update

Chris Rushworth takes the ball at the Pavilion End. Notts 3-0.

11:29am

Frankjw

I suspect Notts will TRY to bat for a draw

marchy22

aye lol

keenasmustard

Marchy would that be Pavarotti?

Notts second session

And so the Notts second session begins! Graham Onions will bowl the first over.

11:24am

marchy22

might have a tenor on notts, at least if we somehow lose i will make some money

Tynevalleyblackcat

Middlesex now need 193 with 7 wickets left.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Current Betfair odds are Durham win 1/4 on, Draw 4/7 on, Notts win 13/2

Tynevalleyblackcat

Neither of them dare lose to the other one Marchy and Lancs will just spend today trying to get some batting points.

marchy22

lancs and worcs dont look like they are going to contrive a result

marchy22

if they chase it down fair play to them

Tynevalleyblackcat

Run Rate required is 4.07

BrianT

365 in 90 overs. No chance Notts.

Declaration!

There it is - the declaration! Our lead is 365. Come on Durham!

11:16am

brandonia

90 overs to bowl.

brandonia

Lead of 365.

Tristan

declaration now?

brandonia

Declared.

marchy22

declare in a few overs

Tynevalleyblackcat

Notts will now be chasing over 4 an over.

Update

Durham 320-8, leading by 360, Onions 6* and Thorp 4*.

11:13am

brandonia

360 lead.

brandonia

Onions FOUR.

marchy22

must be turning alot there

brandonia

I'm not sure I buy into this 'Notts need a win'..... They don't, they play Warwickshire twice in their last 3 games so a draw is fine for them.

Tristan

sooner we get at them the better. notts commentators seem to be planning for the draw 'every dot is a victory'

Tynevalleyblackcat

Make that 3 Marchy

marchy22

middlesex 2 down now

brandonia

2 leg-side balls from Franks.

brandonia

Bunny off the mark.

Wicket...

Durham 314-8, Colly is bowled by White for 59.

Thorp off the mark.

brandonia

Started early!!! 10.59am

Response to Tynevalleyblackcat

Yes, that would be right.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Need to be straight at them here. No point blocking. Haway lads.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Playing a few overs also takes two out of the game for the change of innings I assume?

Noz

Good luck lads!!!

brandonia

The bell has rung but still no sign of Bracegirdle! HA'WAY DURHAM!!

bryn

Good luck lads,we can pull this off!

Update

Play is about to get underway here - we'll resume on 301-7 to extend our current lead of 341.

Agreed tvbc. Personally I would have swung the bat for 5 overs or so. Maybe get another 30 or do. Would keep them guessing as well although the declaration is inevitable and would use up overs. The flip side is that declaring now sends the message that we think we already have enough!!

BrianT

If they're still batting after 85 overs they'll be near the target. Collingwood is not an adventurous captain. He is sensible. 80 overs to get them out. 16 overs for each of the main bowlers.

Tynevalleyblackcat

If we declare now they will need 3.55 per over. If we bat for say 10 more overs and score say 40 more runs, they would need 4.54 per over. Big difference there.

Noz

Morning all. The benefit of declaring now/overnight is that should we need it we'll get a good few overs with a second new ball

Tristan

should be a very good day, durham, sunderland & england, today is a good day for sport!

Tristan

i think borthwick will play a role too with the ball starting to turn

southwood

So would I .I think another 20/30 runs to set a chase in about 88 overs be reasonable bearing in mind Notts still have the batsmen who can score quickly.A current ask of 3.5 an over is only just above the rate of the previos innings. a rate nearer 4 an over is gettable but challenging and Notts need the win as much as Durham. Cloud around today so Bunny may well be the key but the other bowlers need to contribute

daleslass

Morning all

marchy22

I would have to say I would be very surprised if we had

salmon

Daily Mail seems to think so as well

marchy22

Oh right thanks. Just sky sports seem to think we have and notts will be chasing 342

Response to marchy22

I've not had confirmation one way or another - we'll know at 11am!

10:05am

marchy22

Have we declared over night yvette?

Day four

It's the fourth and final day here at Trent Bridge - we'll be getting underway at 11am!
