6:03pm

bryn

I bet 'yous' were gonna streak as well,gutting :-(

marchy22

give borthwick an over before the close and get everyone round the bat

marchy22

they want shot for blowing it last game of the season and of all teams to lose to tynemouth, very poor

bryn

You must have got too carried away and actually said 'yer kna what? We gonna win this! :-(

marchy22

this is exactly the same as the first innings, get them 5 down in the 60s then they have a 6th wicket recovery, come on lads get a wicket

marchy22

lost their first game of the season and with it the title to south north

bryn

How'd blaydon do at the weekend?

marchy22

we need to break this partnership tonight

chrissafc

they play tomorrow

safcluke

how did the seconds get on?

We're back!

We're back on...six overs left tonight.

5:40pm

Update

We're off for bad light here...

5:33pm

CollingwoodFTM

Is that a wicket and bad light?

marchy22

gonna be another 6th wicket partnership of 100+ like they had in the 1st innings

chrissafc

2 "local" away games

safcluke

Looks like Derby & Yorkshire will be getting promoted. Good to see Derby in LVCC 1. Karl Krikken has done a good job with them.

marchy22

get onions he will make the break through

marchy22

like i said he will punish the drop

brandonia

Wells onto 41*.

Update

Sussex 82-5 after 28 overs, Brown 6* and Wells 37*

5:11pm

marchy22

he will punish that drop and score a century

marchy22

he will punish that drop and score a century

Stan Drop

Let's get Wells out tonight and give Yvette a victorious send-off tomorrow. I'm off to the pub now, then home to watch Engerlund. See you all tomorrow

brandonia

Wells dropped by Stokes.

Stan Drop

What did we put in their tea?

bryn

oh for a power monkey! :-(

brandonia

Yeah, he batted well first innings and was not out. Wells is their best batsmen too so this partnership could hurt us.

marchy22

ben brown to score an other half century here ;)

marchy22

kent looking like they have blown their chances of promotion

brandonia

Yesssssss Cal!! 53-5 in effect.

Wicket!

Sussex 69-5! Wernars is out lbw to Thorp for 1.

4:53pm

marchy22

5 down?

keenasmustard

Wicket

brandonia

Get in Stokesy! Just chipping away nicely here.

Stokes again!

Stokes strikes again! Machan is caught behind on 6. Sussex 68-4 after 22.2 overs.

4:49pm

Tea

Tea time here...Sussex 51-3, Machan 0* and Wells 20*.

4:13pm

tomb

It makes for exciting games though I think we are lucky not to have points deducted for it, low scores shouldnt be the case for every innings in every game, particularly the top 3 of teams seem to find batting against the new ball impossible.

Tynevalleyblackcat

31 for 3 effectively. Regardless of the weather, games at the Riverside continue to develop at break neck speed.

Wicket!

Wicket for Stokes! Gatting is caught behind. Sussex 47-3!

4:06pm

chrissafc

Nottinghamshire duo Scott Elstone and Karl Turner have been told that they will not be offered new deals next season

BrianT

Just before I go, well done Thorpe. Stokes had four runs and a no ball off the over. Plus one mi*** skywards. Not a bad over from a wicket-taker. Bye for now Marchy.

Wicket!

Sussex 46-2 as Callum Thorp has Yardy trapped lbw on 29.

3:53pm

marchy22

stokes getting pasted straight off

BrianT

On my way down now despite Marty's forebodings on weather. There's always the bar I suppose.

Bowling change

Ben Stokes comes on for the 13th over. Sussex 38-1.

3:46pm

tomb

Me neither

keenasmustard

I don't understand why we signed Myburgh beyond the T20 then just played him in one match.

tomb

I usually get along for two days ish of every game, sometimes more. Think David Harker is still the bean counter, not really an error, just miscalculating which players might have bben on an ECB contract, Onions will be on aincrememntal contract from now on. LMC might be vital but whos gonna be employed to do it if finances are tight, would need somebody doing it as a hobby at the games probably.

marchy22

bowlers havent bowled very tightly this match

exiledgeordie

Have Durham hired a new bean-counter?

Stan Drop

LMC is a vital link for those of us (even if itb is only raydetmold and me) who live abroad and can't get over to CLS very often.

keenasmustard

I go to at least one day of every CC game but work commitments prevent me going more often.

marchy22

haway lads lets have another wicket

marchy22

haway lads lets have another wicket

marchy22

id love to go watch durham every day but other priorities in life means i cant

Latest

Sussex 30-1 after 8.3 overs, Yardy 20* and Wells 10*.

3:32pm

tomb

Need someone else to do it, and if its anything like where I work, if someone leaves, they dont get replaced anymore. Hope I'm wrong and it continues.

BrianT

We might actually have to go and watch Durham.

keenasmustard

It would be a shame if there was no LMC. Remember next year we wont have radio commentary so losing this would be a double blow. I don't think any other county website has anything like this.

marchy22

good luck for everything you do in the future yvette, you will be sorley missed if live chat continues

marchy22

i dont think they will have live match chat next year so tomorrow might be the last day we get to chat to one another

exiledgeordie

No Yvette. No forum. No commentary. Will they carry on with cricket next year?

tomb

Not convincved there will be a replacement, hope there is as its been a good service for supporters.

tomb

Not convincved there will be a replacement, hope there is as its been a good service for supporters.

keenasmustard

Lancs v Surrey no play for the second consecutive day.

aapierre

shame you will be leaving -

chrissafc

very good, i wish you well with all of that

Response

I have some freelance projects lined up!

3:09pm

aapierre

yeah yvette , I missed that snippet too ?

chrissafc

where you off to yvette?

Stan Drop

Thanks Yvette. I am sorry that you are leaving us and wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

tomb

Disagree Stan Drop, its too in favour of bowlers, every one has struggled on it this season

Wicket!

Chris Rushworth strikes third ball! Nash is the man out. Sussex 6-1.

3:03pm

Response to Stan Drop

Women's cricket is run by the Durham Cricket Board, which has a link on this website. All departments are encouraged to send us content for the website, which, if we receive, we do post.

3:01pm

Sussex second innings

Sussex 2-0, Nash and Wells at the crease. Graham Onions is bowling the first over.

3:00pm

Stan Drop

Yvette, could you answer my question from yesterday: "Why does Durham Women's cricket not have a page on the website? Although I see that there is a Women's Cricket Development Officer. England would be even better with a few Durham lasses to call upon!

Stan Drop

Pitch OK. Batters need to improve!

tomb

Another huge score at the Riverside, is the pitch ever going to improve?

Durham post 227

Durham post 227 - a lead of 16.

2:53pm

Stan Drop

Bunny out from Monty's first after the break

bryn

A dance off with blackie! Id pay to see that!

chrissafc

KP probably would have asked to be put into the final straight away

keenasmustard

Surprised KP isn't doing Strictly. It's not as if he has anything on at present.

Tynevalleyblackcat

All out and lead is 16

tomb

Harmys doing it to get some excercise in

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good little session that!!!!!!

Were back on

Were back on at Emirates Durham, Graham Onions and Chris Rushworth return to the crease.

2:48pm

Stan Drop

I agree with keenas. It would be good value for money. They had a hover cover at Old Trafford too, but it didn't stop the game from being rained off with only five balls to go to get a result;)

bryn

Blackies appearing after the final on sat,he'll probably win given the last few weeks hes had!

tomb

Who else is on Strictly Bryn, Mike Gatting, Sir Geoffrey Boycott?

keenasmustard

@aapierre -It is fast and reliable, carries the side sheets and bowlers' run-up covers, and is a great sponsorship opportunity to boot. It is lightweight and easy to manoeuvre

bryn

Bit rain starting

aapierre

why is a hover cover better than a traditional one ?

bryn

:-@

bryn

...thats on strictly of course,not some weird thing him and i have going on!

keenasmustard

I'd prefer to see Vaughan on a skewer.

peter_brent

afternoon all, I don't believe the Oval have a hover cover. Not sure how many have got them Lords does possibly Edgbaston.

tomb

Surely we can afford a sliding roof like at Wimbledon!

bryn

Im looking forward to seeing michael vaughan in sequins on sat!

keenasmustard

The hover covers are better though. I think all of the test grounds have one.

aapierre

@ keenasmustard would the ECB not have a minimum standard cover and thus Durham must comply with that?

Mackem_Dave

Still persistantly coming down in Seaton.

chrissafc

which part of teesside you at?

Its drying up!

The sun is shining over Emirates Durham and we are aiming for a 2.45 start.

2:22pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Seems we spend most of our money on players salaries Keenas!!

keenasmustard

I was looking at our covers yesterday and felt they were sub-standard for a test ground. Surely we can afford on of those hover-covers.

auldtimer

The sheets are coming off.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Much brighter now here in Sunny Sunderland!!

keenasmustard

Sun is out in Teeside.

Mark

I'm a couple of miles from the ground and it's getting brighter here as well so hopefully play will be able to resume soon.

tomb

Just brightened up and rain easing in Durham

auldtimer

It's getting brighter but the rains getting heavier at the ground.

BrianT

I know. I think they referred to that problem in the summary. However, if there are any other clubs who've innocently breached it and not owned up They won't get away so lightly.

tomb

Its a tricky one for clubs if you have to factor in who might or might not be on a ECB paid central contract.

BrianT

I know we're minus 2.5 for next season for breaching the salary cap but reading the ECB comment on it, the club came out of it with a great deal of credit. I just wonder what penalties might be in store for other clubs who have been less forthcoming. They did say that Durham were the only ones to come forward.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Forecast is for this to blow over soon, but it does not look like it here at Doxford Park.

Lunch

Durham 227-9 at the lunch break

12:49pm

CollingwoodFTM

200 - 6 when I left the PC.

tomb

its quite heavy here so might be off for a while now

keenasmustard

*meant the scheduled lunch time, not after lunch

keenasmustard

Tomb, they go on for up to half an hour after lunch when 9 wickets are down - a new rule. the rain has made it academic anyway now.

Rain..

And the rain returns...I think that'll be lunch!

12:39pm

tomb

Late lunch?

Update

That's a lead of 6! Bunny 7* and Rushy 6*.

12:35pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

We lead :)

Tynevalleyblackcat

Level now.

tomb

Whats happened lads? Its pouring doon in Durham now, amazed you're still playing.

keenasmustard

It will be spooky if we get all out for the same score as them. That's exactly what happened in the same fixture a few weeks ago at Arundel.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Lets just get level.

Wicket...

Wernars bowls Thorp for 1. Durham 203-9, Rushworth and Onions at the crease.

12:23pm

bryn

Who said that?? :-)

BrianT

9 for 2 in the last 10 overs. We really are useless at batting in the dark!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Come on lads, dig in and at least get parity!!

Wicket...

Borthwick is caught off Wernars for 35. Durham 202-8.

12:16pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Shame we could not get past their score before losing that wicket, but that stand has at least got us back on track. Hopefully dig in now and get a useful little lead.

Wicket...

Durham 202-7 after Mustard is out lbw to Nash on 45. Callum Thorp joins Borthwick (35*).

12:12pm

chrissafc

would love to know what his batting average is since the t20 finished. he's been as good as anyone

chrissafc

yeah borthwick is best at durham, dont think he's england class as of yet. just think the lad has taken a lot of unjustified stick off some people. delighted at how well he's playing at the moment. he's been excellent

Durham 200

Durham reach 200 - Borthwick 33* and Mustard 45*

12:04pm

tomb

Raining in Durham for the last hour or so

tomb

Mustard I meant for England, not Borthwick, yet

tomb

Magoffin looked handy yesterday

tomb

Certainly would do a job in the 50 over team, cant do much worse than Bopara. We lost points for slow over rate, seemed a bit harsh but there you go. We're -2.5 for next season already.

BrianT

I think over rate only kicks in after 4 hours of an innings. Still fuming at 4 points deducted against Lancs. What was all that about?

chrissafc

sussex bowled well yesterday but once again borthwick digging in and mustard doing very well

tomb

So much for Sussxe being in charge, not yet anyway

chrissafc

199/6 - batting point soon. p/ship 80

Latest

Durham 194-6 after 62 overs, Borthwick 33* and Mustard 40*

11:53am

chrissafc

scott borthwick doesnt get the credit he deserves

chrissafc

why is marty mentioning -3 over rate? we ended on -1

chrissafc

193/6

aapierre

so mustard has stickability deserved more england chances really

keenasmustard

147

tomb

Congrats to Phil, how many appearances is that?

tomb

I found that report a bit biased towards Sussex as well, they were hardly in charge at that point, plus ourl ower order and Phil are well capapble of adding runs.

Latest

Durham 180-6, Mustard 40* and Borthwick 20*.

11:24am

chrissafc

they are clearing it out, what's out is basically it.

keenasmustard

Disapponted there were no Durham baseball caps in the shop yesterday. Only shirts & tops.

chrissafc

family stick together :)

bryn

:-)

chrissafc

i'll pass on the "kirk" comments :)

chrissafc

he's in tomorrow

bryn

is kirk working in the shop today?

chrissafc

borthwick once again proving his worth.

BrianT

Club shop is class but could be bigger. Keep going in to buy a cushion and get offered an umbrella instead.

chrissafc

club shop sale yesterday. cotton traders contract up.

BrianT

He only gets picked because his cousin's a fast bowler. Have I got that right?

chrissafc

Phil Mustard now Durham's appearance record holder.

parttimeanalyst

Perhaps they're trying the Marchy tactics?

BrianT

Well there is one Match of the day who should go along with Lawrenson and Hansen. Garth Crooks would get my vote. Quite like Piers Morgan though. I think they should all be replaced by Matt Baker and Marty.

CollingwoodFTM

I thought the BBC website match report was slightly misleading stating Sussex were in charge. We are not out of this by a long way.

tomb

Grrr, I cant stand the man, is he not on ITV though? No time for smug and self centred people, luckily not many like that in the North East.

Update

Durham 165-6, Mustard 26* and Borthwick 19*

11:09am

keenasmustard

As we're getting rid of people I'd like to nominate Piers Morgan. Nothing to do with cricket, I just can't stand him.

tomb

I've just got a DCCC logo tattoed on me bicep, thanks Brian. Aye, Wossey gets paid for too much to take the P out of his guests, Ih ate chat shows anyways....

chrissafc

also get rid of alan hansen on MOTD.

parttimeanalyst

Make it "Cricket in Need"?

chrissafc

stop paying terry wogan for CIN night

BrianT

Get rid of Jonathan Woss and share his wages around local wadio stations.

We're back!

Play resumes, Durham 151-6, Mustard 21* and Borthwick 10*.

10:57am

chrissafc

all part of the BBC cuts I guess. those at the top probably still be driving around in flash cars, having nice holidays, whilst important services to the public are cut. the way of the world sadly.

Rain....

A pretty heavy shower stops play...

10:53am

Response to keenasmustard

William has covered some games. He is doing analysis for us.

10:49am

BrianT

I agree Chris. Going on a bit about the clouds though, might stop people coming down.

keenasmustard

Who is the mysterious W Dobson on the scorecard then?

Response to keenasmustard

Richie Hilton is scoring for us this game.

10:47am

chrissafc

obviously havent listened to the commentary often this season, but just heard marty mentioning it appears to be the end of the radio comms which is a massive shame for a lot of fans

keenasmustard

Yvette I see we have another scorer in the box for this game. Who is he?

We're on!

So, play has begun here - Durham 131-6, Mustard 7* and Borthwick 4*.

10:33am

bryn

Gonna have a mooch down in a bit tho ive scrapped my plans to go in fancy dress as a baywatch lifeguard!

BrianT

To all young LMC followers, I was only joking. Tatoos are stupid and you can't be a blood donor for a while after you've had one.

tomb

I'll be there tomorrow, probably the last day (or session)of the season. I wish I had some tattoos to show off. Wonder if we'l ever see a four day match at the Riverside again, without rain interruptions 2 and a half days max seems the norm now.

BrianT

We were warned it would be cold. It's not just the lateness in the year. The coldest I've been at the EICG was the match during that royal wedding which was June I think. Dress appropriately, cover your tatoos and shelter behind a golf umbrella, or rather, in front of one.

brandonia

Winter is on the way for sure. 300 all out today and Sussex will be 61-5 at Close!

chrissafc

yeah was sat in county durham stand for the 1st session yesterday, felt like -20. moved into the members lounge after that.

chrissafc

i'll be down tomorrow providing the game lasts that long

tomb

Thanks to Yvette for the service on the Live Chat over the years.

tomb

Cold, it was effing freezing! Hoping to come along later on.

chrissafc

not normally one to feel the cold, but yesterday was a cold day down at the ground

Day two

It's a bit chilly but dry at Emirates Durham - we should be starting on time at 10.30am!

9:08am

Have your say
