Durham 71-2 after 23.5 overs, Stokes 37* and Jennings 23*

3:57pm

peter_brent

Thanks.

Response to peter_brent

He's not overseas. His mum is from Sunderland.

3:53pm

peter_brent

what is Jennings status, is he an overseas player ? I read somewhere his Dad was from Sunderland. Anyone know ?

keenasmustard

Would cut a fair chunk out of the wage bill too.

keenasmustard

I wouldn't be sorry if those three weren't here next season. They've been good to the club but now the time has come to move on.

Durham 50

Durham reach fifty, Jennings 19* and Stokes 23*

3:37pm

peter_brent

It's difficult to see Harmison,Plunkett & Blackie at Durham next season. Possibly Plunkett may be kept as a one day player. But time to move on players who have hardly featured in the CC for two years.

Noz

Blackie 9-1-30-2

keenasmustard

A few of the Worcs players should have changed their bats.

Latest

The ball is being changed after Worcs have a few discussions with the umpires.

3:31pm

Noz

They've moaned long enough to get the ball changed now. It was only 17 overs old and they've been seeking a new one for the last half an hour or so

Update

Durham 42-2 after 17 overs....

3:27pm

Latest

Durham 27-2 after 12.4 overs, Jennings and Stokes both 9*

3:06pm

Noz

Blackie 4-0-16-1

gilly92

blackwell has just taken a wicket for Warks. I still reckon he's too good a player to let go on loan

keenasmustard

128/12 so far today.

Noz

Awful shot!!

Two down...

Durham 8-2 after Smith is caught off Russell for 3. Stokes joins Jennings.

2:45pm

IAIN6W

Plunkett had an achilles problem.

safcluke

Does anyone know who is out of contract at the end of the season?

peter_brent

Plunkett was quoted as recovering from an injury in the recent report on his court case. .."Plunkett is recovering from an Achilles injury which prevents him from playing"

keenasmustard

Went on loan after being left out of the side v Surrey. Plunkett is not injured to my knowledge.

Update

Durham 7-1 after 6 overs, Jennings 5* and Smith 2*

2:37pm

christoff

Have we loaned him out to Warwickshire? Also is Plunkett injured not in 2nds?

keenasmustard

Blackie's currently bowling in the Warwickshire game.

safcluke

Haway Jennings. hundred..

Wicket...

Stoneman is out lbw to Richardson. Durham 0-1.

2:15pm

safcluke

Who is Ingram? Not noticed his name before

Durham innings

The Durham innings begins - Mark Stoneman and Will Smith at the crease

2:12pm

brandonia

Excellent work by the bowlers, looks like its going to be hard work for our batsmen though. I'd snap your hand off for 250 now.

2XI

2XI: Durham lost the toss and will bat first. Team is Raine, Singh, Muchall, Richardson, Myburgh, Breese, Clark, Ingram, Coughlin, Claydon, Brathwaite. The latest is that Durham 100-4

safcluke

safcluke

All out 120 is my gues. Durham 156-0 at the close.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Haway lads, let get them out asap, no annoying little stands please.

Wicket!

Worcs 92-8, Andrew is the man out.

1:50pm

peter_brent

Wicket ? BBC have them eight down now.

safcluke

do we vote for "young" player of the year? if so give that to Stoneman then.

christoff

Onions for me too. Stoneman and Rushworth should als both be congratulated for making big improvements in what has been a difficult season.

safcluke

Pitch inspector been on the wicket during lunch, ok with it for now but monitoring it.

brandonia

Can't see past Onions IMO.

safcluke

Must be time of the year for play of the season votes. Mine goes to Stoneman.

Lunch

Lunch here - Worcester 85-7, Scott 1* and Andrew 16*.

1:00pm

CollingwoodFTM

Why all the stress?

Noz

Liking the reverse psychology Brando!! :-)

Wicket!

Pardoe is out lbw to Stokes for 36! Worcs 74-7.

12:49pm

brandonia

Pardoe is nailed on for a fifty.

Tristan

CollingwoodFTM

Good luck lads. Just off into the movies to watch Brave. I hope we are batting when I come out. Of the cinema that is ;-)

Noz

What's the weather like there? Raining, well spitting, in Newcastle.

Tristan

in the context of the game, this could be a winning contribution already :/

brandonia

This partnership is killing us. I can see Pardoe making big runs.

Tristan

this partnership is beginning to be a thorn in our side

Bowling change

Callum Thorp comes onto bowl the 16th over and then Ben Stokes enters into the acrion for the 17th over.

12:10pm

parky

Found it event 12 last on the list

brandonia

Anyone know the Live Event Number on TuneIn?

Mark

They'll be all out before I get there at this rate. Must be another very tricky pitch to bat on, if it is a score of around 130 might be competitive! So let's finish them off quickly.

Tristan

haha cheers brent. called the first wicket taker and predicted the over... just didnt realise there would be 4 more wickets before it!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

This is getting stupid now.

Five down!

Worcs five down! Pinner is bowled by Rushworth.

11:44am

brandonia

Cheers Tristy, it's that bacon and egg I had man. Got me fired right up.

peter_brent

Tristan you got your wicket in the 10th over.

Tynevalleyblackcat

They could be out by lunch at this rate!!

Tristan

brandy you are on fire today!

Four down!

Solanki is bowled by Rushworth. Worcs 26-4 after 9.4 overs!

11:41am

Tristan

and another

parky

Sports Extra are from Taunton today

brandonia

Solanki always scores runs against us. Are we on 5Live Sports Extra today??

Tynevalleyblackcat

Fantastic. Bonus point inside 36 minutes!!

Wicket!

Ali out lbw to Onions for 4. Worcs 25-3!

11:36am

Tristan

25-3

parky

Anyone know the BBC Live event number for smart phone streaming?

Tristan

i think mitch may end up being more of a one day player

Tristan

claydon & brathwaite will be in teh reckoning anarl

safcluke

Where does Mitch fit in then?

Tristan

looks likely dave, though don't forget harrison.

safcluke

Yvette - completely random question but do you know who the Worcester 12th man is today?

Mackem_Dave

Difficult decision on team selection. Hard on Wood but Onions is a no brainer, Thorp has 33 FC wkts at 19.58 and Rushy 26 at 16. Probably the right choice. Wood in for Thorp next season?

Mark

Big wicket, good start. On my way down shortly, be nice to have another couple before I set off!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Well there's the two early wickets I asked for. Lets have some more though.

Two down!

Hughes is caught by Stokes off Onions for 4. Worcs 19-2 after 6.1 overs!

11:24am

Tristan

Good work brandy, that one was for you :)

Tynevalleyblackcat

Great start. They cannot be confident, so get among them early and put them on the back foot from the off.

safcluke

Ali also.

brandonia

Need to get Hughes, he's the danger man. I can see him making big runs.

Tristan

gutted. well at least i got the bowler right!!

safcluke

great start.

keenasmustard

YAAAY!!!

Wicket!

Mitchell caught by Borthwick off Rushworth's third delivery. Worcs 9-1!

11:05am

Play begins!

Play begins - Onions opens the Durham attack.

11:02am

safcluke

Worcester top four is one of the best in the country imo. Cant believe they've left Lucas out.

Tristan

enjoy the day mbh. whilst i agree re: woody they have obviously decided experience over exuberance. thorp is still a quality player. i think we will see a lot more of woody & harrison next year, hopefully easing them in will prove to be the right method

myboyharry

Yet again Durham invite criticism by leaving Wood out. Its a shocking decision when we should be starting to see more not less of the younger lads. Worcestershire look to have named a reasonable batting lineup but other than Richardson there doesnt look to me to be much to be frightened of for our batsmen. Going down shortly.

Tristan

sweetstake on first wicket? im going rushyworth in the 10th over

safcluke

On a more random note, its a disgrace that Northants have left Luke Evans out the team this week.

safcluke

very poor that

Tristan

flying? thorp is taking wickets at the pedestrian average of 23 ;)

Tristan

top of our batting average as well as wicket taking match winner in his last outing

safcluke

Harsh on Woody but the other three quicks are flying at the moment.

Tynevalleyblackcat

A couple of early wickets to calm the nerves and then just continue the form we have shown in the last 4 longer matches.

brandonia

Got to feel sorry for Woody. What's he supposed to do to keep his place?!!

safcluke

Pleased we've stuck with Jennings.

Worcs

Worcs: Mitchell, Hughes, Ali, Solanki, Andrew, Pardoe, Scott, Pinner, Leach, Russell, Richardson

10:44am

Noz

He scored a few runs too!!

Noz

Poor that like!

Tristan

can't be many players dropped after a match winning five fer

Tristan

wood dropped for thorp? controversial decision that like

Noz

Morning all. Let's hope our good firm continues and we have a great day! If we win this match it should just about guarantee safety!?

Tristan

collingwood's first win of the toss!

Durham

Durham: Smith, Stoneman, Jennings, Stokes, Benkenstein, Collingwood, Mustard, Borthwick, Thorp, Onions, Rushworth

10:42am

Tristan

No need to argue you two.Lose the toss be put in, bowled out cheaply, take wickets, enforce follow on, win before stumps on day one. sorted

Toss result

Durham won the toss and will bowl first

10:41am

peter_brent

win the toss and bowl and then be 75-0 at the close 75 behind.

brandonia

Beautiful day. Win the toss, bat and be 350-3 at Close. Ideal! Bacon, Sausage and Egg on Brown Granary with HP Sauce for Brunch.

chrissafc

on my way, good luck durham

Tristan

Haway the lads and lasses of DCCC & LMC!!
