brandonia

I'm doing it keenas. They're paying me in scones.

keenasmustard

Where's the LMC person? Have the rats deserted the sinking ship?

brandonia

Rushworth shares the new ball.

brandonia

Cowan dropped at third slip by Stokes.

brandonia

4-0 (0.1 overs).

safcluke

No updates from Durham this morning?

Haslam

I make it up to 7 of their players to be involved in the ashes summer in one form or another. We'll just be supplying the best water carrier.

marchy22

durham to win by an innings ha ha

Haslam

Their lineup os sickeningly strong. How are we the only ones over the wage cap? Brave move in selection, looks a weaker batting lineup to me but options in attack. Long day ahead...

safcluke

Yes, indeed.

marchy22

what a strong team they have, gonna be a very tough match

safcluke

Alex Hales Edward Cowan Michael Lumb James Taylor Samit Patel Christopher Read (C, W) Steven Mullaney Stuart Broad Graeme Swann Ajmal Shahzad Luke Fletcher

safcluke

Not helping himself with poor scores in the 2nd team.

marchy22

wheres richardson again, he must be sick, promised things to make him sign a new contract and then just left out

brandonia

Very harsh on Jennings. He wouldn't have been the Top 5 member I'd have dropped - unless hes injured of course.......

brandonia

Nottinghamshire team AD Hales, EJM Cowan, MJ Lumb, JWA Taylor, SR Patel, CMW Read*†, SJ Mullaney, SCJ Broad, GP Swann, A Shahzad, LJ Fletcher

marchy22

is colly batting three?

safcluke

harsh on Jennings but maybe he's injured..

marchy22

what has jennings done to be dropped

daleslass

Nice to see Gareth included.

safcluke

Breese might bat at 3.

brandonia

Decent batting lineup like.

brandonia

Stoneman, Smith, Collingwood, Benkenstein, Stokes, Mustard, Breese, Wood, Borthwick, Onions, Rushworth.

safcluke

No Swann. Interesting...

brandonia

Surprised to see Jennings dropped following what looked like a vast improvement against Yorkshire.

brandonia

Thorp and @JetJennings replaced by Gareth Breese and @MAWood33 for @DurhamCricket Steven Mullaney replaces @gurneyhf for @TrentBridge

brandonia

Breese in the squad.

brandonia

Durham Cricket Club ‏@DurhamCricket 35m Squad vs @TrentBridge:Stoneman, Jennings,Smith,Benkenstein,Stokes Collingwood,Mustard,Borthwick,Thorp Rushworth,Onions, Breese, Wood

safcluke

And no, I'm not have a go at Borthwick, I just think he's a better batsman.

brandonia

Will Smith as our only spinner?? Worrying that.

marchy22

so we are going in with five seamers

safcluke

Will Smith will be the spin option, probably more use than SB.

safcluke

Borthwick injured I think.

brandonia

Not sure yet but Notts won the toss and will bat.

marchy22

instead of who?

brandonia

Wood is playing apparently.

brandonia

Good man Luke.

safcluke

I'll bat 3, expecting to be in the changing room until after tea.

brandonia

I'll go in as night-watchman at 5, it'll be about 6.23 when I'm needed with us on 341-3.

brandonia

Cheers marchy, Luke can go 3. Bryn 4.

Haslam

Hope not safc, bumped into some of their fans after last time they won. Most arrogant supporters I'd ever heard, for me its somertset

marchy22

ill open if you want brandonia, middlesex to win the championship for me

brandonia

What's that matter marchy? Haven't you seen our averages this season?!

safcluke

Notts are my favourites to win the Championship.

Haslam

Tough match but hopefully our top order are coming into come form. 250 is usually not a bad score on here so it would be grand to bat and still be in at close.

bryn

morning campers,its a good drying day to say the least! double pegged the lot

safcluke

Morning all. Any early team news?

marchy22

broad is over rated in my opinion, im not a batter brandonia

brandonia

I think we should open with Marchy and Daleslass this morning, should we decide to bat of course.

brandonia

Aye, I don't like him Dimitar what can I say?!

Berb

Pretty Poor Comment About Broad, Brandonia. Im sure he loves you too.

mac6

Morning all. Any squad or team news

daleslass

Morning all

brandonia

Is the lovely Michelle with us today?!

marchy22

if we r lucky

brandonia

I'm hoping Broad snaps his Achilles when running in to bowl his first ball.

marchy22

fingers crossed hes rusty and broad has a mtch of throwing down dross

brandonia

Aye true, with him we can only hope he's a bit rusty. Good chance for Scotty though (if fit) because no doubt the national media will be watching.

marchy22

swann back today though

brandonia

I'm just glad Andre Adams is injured.

marchy22

gonnna be a really hard match against a very strong notts team

poolynorm

Just heard on radio nufc that Marchy and Dagenham Dave's cousin have been left out today's squad due to mutiny actions.

brandonia

More interested in 'Ladies Night' keenas ;-)

keenasmustard

Yes where's the squad announcement?

brandonia

Notts TODAY!! Morning all, must say I'm a slight dissappointed at the lack of news coming from the club. Not to worry, Ha'way Durham!!

brandonia

Notts tomorrow. Ha'way Durham!!!

durham dave

Ah well Brian you and our great Captain can have a drink.together and laugh at the footie scores tonite with your mighty side you got at Sol. Never mind dont come back on if you wont speak up and think everything ok at club

BrianT

Don't think I'll bother with LMC after today. Bit of a disgraceful performance from some of you. A pity because I used to enjoy the comments. On the radio anyway. I did enjoy the footy tonight though.

Post match report and Collingwood interview

Head here for our post match report and some words from Captain Paul Collingwood: http://www.durhamccc.co.uk/news/durham-vs-yorkshire-day-4/

11:04pm

durham dave

Why does everyone keep saying we only.lost 3 points ????? End of day we are a shambles and been that way for 4 years. Everyone on here stop being scared and tell the truth about terrible displays we shown . Club has no overseas player no leadership and no chance of winning anything. All Durham CCC is worried about is their World class venue. Bit of advice then look after your members and team first. As long as Ashes is here though thats main thing. Absoulute disgrace performance on and off pitch

brandonia

Bit harsh that like Durham Dave. It's only one loss man, we played some good cricket over the first three days and just got beat on the last day by a remarkable innings from Joe Root. I still say Colly was right to declare. I love the bravery to try and win the game. It's only 3 points we've lost really. Already looking forward to Notts on Monday, off work as it happens but can't get down to watch it unfortunately. Keep the faith lads, Ha'way Durham!!!!!

durham dave

Leave club all first eleven.wont.be missed shambles and a joke to.call yourselves professional. You wont be missed

killyted

to be fair to colly 180+ is some score,no one expected that

Stevos

Anyway....... Hopefully Newcastle will get stuffed!!!!!

durham dave

Colly call it a day you should after this

Mark

Root won it, brilliant innings. He was close to being out last night on cpl of occasions. Just one of those things.

keenasmustard

I could have gone to the mother in laws funeral instead of watching this. shes not dead but thats a different story.

michael shaw

if you look it like 3pts lost,rather than 16 gained,it does,ent sound as bad,until you add yorkshire on the end!they never won this we lost it-sour grapes i no,but it makes me feel better.

Mark

It's only 3 points, Yorks won't be challenging for the title and we shouldn't be worried about relegation. A disappointing result obviously but hardly a disaster.

Stevos

Stokes doesn't deserve his usual Saturday night out on the drink after that display!!!!

chrissafc

Very questionnable.decisions with bowling selections

chrissafc

Batting paradise.

Mark

Far better to take a chance and risk dropping 3 points, it wasn't a reckless gamble.Flat pitch or not 300 plus was a very tough target.

michael shaw

i don,t blame the players who played as well as yorkshire are today,this is a case,of misjudgement,like i said earliar durham had scored 275 in 78.0 overs,they in no way had put the game beyond yorkshire,if they had gone nap last night in the last seven overs given to yorks we would not be having this debate,bad decision by the captain.sorry very bad decision by the captain,mind you had we bowled them out we would be saying good call,however the risk was always to great-watch this space

chrissafc

Game.over. Gutted

keenasmustard

Ok maybe not

brandonia

You wouldn't be saying that if we'd rolled them for 200 about an hour ago.

keenasmustard

We just need the four wickets now. Come on boys we can do this.

chrissafc

Colly hasnt been positive today. Clueless

Mark

It was wort the risk with only 3 pts for the draw. Just have to give credit to Roof

Game Over

That's game over here with Yorkshire coming away with the victory chasing down 336 runs.Next up we have Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge starting Monday.

5:49pm

brandonia

Stop being a fairy Chris. It's arnly 3 points man.

chrissafc

Right decision? Erm..... We have lost

Mark

Agree brandonia, definitely right decision to declare

brandonia

LOCK UP YOUR HORSES!!!

chrissafc

Thorp takes a wicket

brandonia

Root gone.

keenasmustard

Ha Root gone.

marchy22

we have lost three but gifted yorks 16

brandonia

16 for a win was ALWAYS worth going for and would be every time.

brandonia

If you concede 330 on the last day in 90 overs or so then you deserve to lose. Can't blame Colly for being positive. We've only lost 3 points man. Some proper fairies on here today.

poolynorm

Don't have a problem Marchy, just the same as when you had a sense of humour!!

chrissafc

Smith on now. Jennings and thorp have obv upset.someone at tea

marchy22

that makes it ok shame theyvshouldnt have been given the chance to

brandonia

*bowled

brandonia

Colly hasn't bowler dross all day.

marchy22

colly has to take the blame

chrissafc

Thorp 14,5 34 runs

brandonia

To chase down over 330 on the final day to win is a great achievement.

chrissafc

Well done yorkshire. Comfortable as it gets

brandonia

Who would you blame then? I can't understand why people can't appreciate how great Yorkshire have batted today.

marchy22

hes bowled for twenty overs at five an over. how maby has thorp bowled

marchy22

why barndonia, u cant blame the players for the declarition u loved

chrissafc

Colly needs to take blame for that

chrissafc

20.

marchy22

of how many overs chris

chrissafc

Stokes has gone for 99

brandonia

If I was the coach I'd have them travelling to Nottingham tonight.

Update

Yorkshire are not too far away here, just the 9 runs required. 327-5 and unfortunately we haven't been able to get the wicekts today.

5:41pm

keenasmustard

Stokes might have a few pints with Pudsey tonight (allegedly)

chrissafc

Dear me why oh why persist with stokes. Cost us the game this

brandonia

Stokes has had some tap lately mind.

marchy22

***

marchy22

whats ur problem pooly

brandonia

5-315? That's rather Australian. Is that you Shell?!!

chrissafc

Thorp on now. All too late

poolynorm

Just heard from SJP.Anyone prepared to keep Marchy company tonight?

chrissafc

They have bullied stokes all day

keenasmustard

This is like a slow death.

chrissafc

Collingwood.needs to question himself over his bowling selections today. Totally baffling

michael shaw

i stand corrected

keenasmustard

No we'd only win by 25 if that was the case.

michael shaw

or york the lot of em and win by 26 runs-erm!

keenasmustard

26 to win. Just bowl long hops then we can get it over with.

marchy22

i like colly, great cricketer and brilliant as captain so far but that declarition was ***ing absurd

chrissafc

Baffling why only.give jennings 2 overs

michael shaw

they,ve now just finished 96.0 overs if you include last night,colly must feel such a prat.

poolynorm

Mind you bryn I can remember when life was a minestrone.

chrissafc

Thorp.must have upset.someone at tea

chrissafc

Bringing stokes back on

michael shaw

the declaration last night will see us defeated,s**t we all new it,how come a seasoned pro,like colly did,ent,even if the game had,ent of finished last night,we should still not of declared our innings until this morning.maybe even batted one or two overs just too make sure!-gees i,m sick.

chrissafc

Straight home for me. Shattering this but also very baffling

bryn

as ronan keating once quipped 'life is a rollercoaster...'

brandonia

HA'WAY DURHAM!!!!!!

brandonia

I don't want to see anyone punching horses up CLS front street after this one mind! Just because we lost a derby doesn't make it ok to smash up any wheelie bins or phone boxes.

chrissafc

Devastating this

poolynorm

Dave have you got a brother in Dagenham?

durham dave

Durham you have been decimated hang your heads

morzee

not long to mope about the defeat as Nottinghamshire game starts Monday.

brandonia

I regularly use Heed when describing the football team. So perhaps that is why it thought I wanted to write heed....... Weird.

poolynorm

Agree Brando.Voted 3rd best cricketer to come from EW.

brandonia

I swear that was an iPhone Auto Correct!!

brandonia

Rash heed hooks a four off Bunny.

keenasmustard

Are there any Members Q & A sthis season or will the club bottle it.

chrissafc

Batting wicket. Very risky declaration. Those 7 overs would have killed them off

brandonia

Shouldn't have got rid of Karl Turner.

marchy22

it will be over in six thank god

brandonia

Great IMO. 336 to win on the last day - gotta hold your hands up to Yorkshire.

durham dave

Whole set up needs changing being rang like minor county. Cook , Colly to blame on this display dont deserve to be in any league

chrissafc

16 overs to.go

marchy22

*** just ***, we cant afford to be gifting teams like yorks victories

keenasmustard

Should never have got rid of Ben Raine.

Stevos

I thought Stokes was meant to be the next big thing. Every time I watch him he either gets out cheaply or goes for loads of runs.

raydetmold

at the end of the day they have Root and we´ve got Smith , not even a contest

chrissafc

It wasnt a great declaration. Batting paradise last 2 days

brandonia

Great IMO.

keenasmustard

We paid £2m to get an ashes test. Hope it's money well spent.

marchy22

it was a *** declartion bradonia

chrissafc

Potentially confidence.destroyer

brandonia

It was a great declaration. Our bowlers just haven't fired. That's it really, I suppose we can allow our bowlers one failure a season.

marchy22

im not looking forward to notts next week

300 up for Yorkshire

Yorkshire 300 comes up, 5 wickets down. 35 runs needed for them to win.

5:11pm

chrissafc

Sat at the ground gutted here. I thought the declaration was risky and some of the faith shown in expensive bowlers has cost us.massively. Thorp and jennings under.used

brandonia

Might hoy ten bob on a Durham win mind........

michael shaw

is it not to late for that.

keenasmustard

I don't mind losing. I don't even mind losing like this. What I do mind is losing to Yorkshire.

raydetmold

new ball due ?

durham dave

Doesnt take long to destroy a season does it . Absoulute disgrace honestly guys Club a joke

michael shaw

i remember the lancashire fan gloating this time last season,when they beat us,saying how he would miss coming to the riverside,guess he never planned it would be lancs in division 2 though,my point,yes its early to be beating ourselves up.however,we,ve maybe gifted yorks this win.

marchy22

the club cant afford ***, im reduced to newcastle to cheer me up now, god help me please

SixSixEight

I'm sure the club can't afford a tea lady?

poolynorm

What about the ice cream van as well musty?

Ed Syers

We can complain about our own team all we like, but it's Joe Root who's won this game for Yorks.

thirskdurham

Come on kam. We've got some good players and staff members.

keenasmustard

Sack them all. From Cook down to the tea lady.

michael shaw

lets face it,the game was lost last night,with hindsight,durham maybe wer,nt batting that great,this total was always gettable in 96.0 overs,thats why declaring last night made absolutly no sense,every member i spoke to,new that so how come two captains could,ent work it out,this is just a bad bad decision.and its looking like weve gifted yorkshire the win.if it had of been just today,we just might of held out for the draw,

SixSixEight

At work here too! Not really what I was hoping to see on my tea break....ho hum. Shame we didn't blast a few more runs as batting practice before declaring. Marchy you said 'division 2 here we come' last year too!

poolynorm

Surely no team has been relegated in April Marchy.

brandonia

No. It's gone.

marchy22

no thirsk

thirskdurham

Anybody still confident?

brandonia

I hate listening to that Cally when he's in gloat mode.

bryn

im at work just checked the score aw man mb needed :(

marchy22

we needed to beat yorks and derby, division two here we come

Ed Syers

Just over two runs an over needed for Yorkshire. Depressing.

marchy22

this game will shatter our confidence

michael shaw

not a chance unless the rain comes from the east.

Overs

There are 22 overs remaining. Yorkshire 287-5 needing 49. Good over by Onions.

4:55pm

Ed Syers

No chance of rain? I'm really clutching at straws here!

chrissafc

Cant for life understand why borthwick has bowled so.much today

Stevos

Too many!

Ed Syers

How many overs left lads?

Stevos

Borthwick has gone for over 5 an over so why has he bowled so many overs?

keenasmustard

Evening all. Not looking good is it?

marchy22

its not roots fault colly declared last night

Bowling Change

Onions comes on from the Finchale End.

4:51pm

brandonia

I blame Alex Wharf for cheating. Root's had 2 lives.

poolynorm

Where's your Tyneside Senior League loyalty Marchy?

marchy22

back to beeding the waether to saves us, colly should be well and truly ashamed

chrissafc

Very puzzled why persisted with stokes and.borthwick so long. Jennings and thorp were bowling well

poolynorm

Looking black over Stanley should reach CLS shortly.

marchy22

the games gone ed, its an utter ***ing joke, they wpnt pick themselves up from this

Ed Syers

Not a minute too soon. Onions at the other end I hope.

Change in Bowling

Rushworth is back into the attack from the Lumley End. Yorkshire 283-5 needing 53.

4:46pm

Stevos

Not Durhams finest day!!!! Looking like they've snatched defeat from the jaws of a victory forward slash draw.

marchy22

too ***ing late now, ***ing ***

marchy22

absolute garbish,

chrissafc

Here comes rushworth

chrissafc

Jennings and thorp were bowling accurate

chrissafc

Hes getting nothing

brandonia

Can't believe Borthwick is still on like. Is he getting any turn?

marchy22

get onions on whats the point in waiting for the new ball when the game will be gone, collys worst game as captain by a mile

chrissafc

Staggering to persist with these 2. Yorkshire whacking us all.over

brandonia

Need Onions and Rushworth on now to get warm for the new nut.

chrissafc

Stokes so expensive

thirskdurham

Come on. ,

poolynorm

Agree with Marchy.Bring back Nick Speak.

150 for Root

That's 150 for Root as Yorkshire 268-5 close in, only 68 runs away from a win. Quick wickets a must now.

4:40pm

marchy22

this defeat falls on collys shoulders, his crap decision

brandonia

Nah, sorry like but 3 points just isn't worth it to not want to win. Besides, you don't win trophies by playing for draws.

marchy22

i really wana swear

marchy22

yorks dont desrve to win, we have handed it to them

marchy22

crap declartion,

chrissafc

Disagree. Should have batted them out the game last night. They are cruising at the moment

poolynorm

Sorry Harry? Just playing catch up! On second thoughts probably not!

auldtimer

The declaration will speak for itself at the end of the game, Durham win and it was a good one, Durham lose and it's a bad one, simple as that regardless of the risks/rewards.

brandonia

It was risky but it's worth the risk EVERY time for me.

CollingwoodFTM

Get Root and we're in with a real chance.

brandonia

Yep. If a team wins on the last day chasing 300+ you've for to say fair play.

Yorkshire 250

250 up for Yorkshire. They are 254-5, Root 146* & Rashif 5* needing 82 with 27 overs remaining.

4:31pm

chrissafc

Still think that declaration was risky. Frustrating this

Haslam

Agree 100% brando. I'm sure the umpires just call it as they see, come on guys this isn't football! If yorks win they deserve it for batting well

brandonia

Scotty getting no joy here.

brandonia

Badly Norm. On both fronts. Might be retiring in the off season.

thirskdurham

So that's what's happened to our appeals.

chrissafc

1 of these umpires is from bradford

brandonia

Yorkshire still favourites for me. Must say mind I still love the declaration decision. Worth the risk everytime. Win 16 or lose 3? No contest.

poolynorm

How's the footy going Brando? Are you still on the dark side? Any new players at the Riggs?

christoff

In the balance now come on Durham

brandonia

Damn you predictive text!! That was meant to say - Balance falls! I've been told Alex Wharf has been rather favourable towards Yorkshire.

Haslam

Another wicket before the new ball and its evens. If its root we're ahead i reckon

Stokes gets his 2nd

Stokes with a big wicket just after Tea. Ballance dismissed caught behind. Looks set for a tense finish here... Yorkshire 235-5, 101 runs behind. We need the 5 wickets. Can we do it?

4:21pm

brandonia

Ballantine falls!! I've been to Alex Wharf has been rather favourable to Yorkshire on this match......

poolynorm

Are you watching Marchy?

poolynorm

Are you watching Marchy?

poolynorm

Are you watching Marchy?

auldtimer

Another quick wkt turns this match on its head.

Ed Syers

Root still in though

chrissafc

Ballance

Mark

Ballance

raydetmold

Balance for 21

CollingwoodFTM

Who's gone?

poolynorm

Don't shoot the messenger.

poolynorm

Don't shoot the messenger.

poolynorm

Don't shoot the messenger.

poolynorm

Don't shoot the messenger.

chrissafc

Ballance gone

chrissafc

Yes. Wicket

Mark

Wicket

marchy22

you have been gone awol too long to cone back and start dropping people

Mark

This is 73rd over

poolynorm

Marchy just been told to drop you from the side due to in match betting.Especially against your own side!!. Remember what happened to them 2 players from Towie?

Ed Syers

When's the new ball?

marchy22

durhams going down

chrissafc

Bit too easy this

Mark

Too stingy to pay for it!

marchy22

ive got alot of money on them now

Ed Syers

Do Yorks not have their own match chat?

chrissafc

Yorkshire trying to play some shots here.

Haslam

Marchy i like the fact you speak your mind even if i don't agree much of the time but if you could refrain from actually cheering on the opposition that would be grand chap. Up to you though.

marchy22

come on the tykes

chrissafc

Yorkshire look confident

marchy22

ive got my grand on yorks so im gonna profit from durham being so crap

Ed Syers

True, them going for the win could potentially give us an advantage. All depends on the bowlers.

Haslam

Agree Michael, i also don't fancy some of their players to come.

michael shaw

that depends on there mind set now ed,do they want a win,that they can almost touch,or blow the lot! intresting session we will soon no,i think yorkshire are now just favouritesas long as root is at the crease.

chrissafc

Here we go. Tense here

Haslam

If we don't get early wickets i can't see them not getting them to be honest ed but we're still in with a chance. Last session was all yorks and they are huge favourites now but I'm sure their fans are less confident than marchy

michael shaw

george osbourne,has just tipped yorkshire now there,s a jinx,if i,ve ever heard one.

Ed Syers

124 runs in one session is no walk in the park marchy

Haslam

*10 in 55 ( one ever 5.5 overs)

marchy22

im going on skybet and putting a grand on yorks at evens, it like printing ur own money

Haslam

6 wickets in 35 is unlikely at a wicket every 5.85 overs. We haven't done that well since erm last innings when we took 10 in 48.

BrianT

Welcher

Noz

Afternoon all. Sorry but I agree with marchy. We should have out the game out of reach before declaring. Their mindset would have been different batting to only save the game as opposed to batting trying to win. We could lose significant points to a team tipped for relegation. Interestingly Skybet still make Durham favourites 4/5 with Yorks evens

michael shaw

its all about the new ball now,has everyone forgot that its due in 5 overs,i,m pinning my hopes on onions and rushy,to get to the root of the problem.but still a terrible decision to declare,but i,m prepared to eat my cap.

marchy22

ha ha so funny, i require the pound in my hand before the final session starts if u wana back the odds

Mark

11

christoff

I so will I howay Durham could be a very exciting last session how many overs til the new ball

Mark

I thought it was right to declare last night and still do, worth risking 3 points for the draw.

BrianT

I'll leave it at the ticket office for you. Do you know where the ground is?

marchy22

give me the pound now then

BrianT

I'll have £1 on that Marchy. Hundreds of witnesses. That's £10,000 for a pound. Can I have your bank details or will you disappear? Good result either way.

Tea

At Tea Yorkshire are 212-4 needing 124 runs. We need the 6 wickets for victory, a couple of quick ones in succession could turn this match.

3:46pm

marchy22

six wickets in 35 overs isnt gonna happen, ill offer 10000/1 for the durham win

Haslam

I think if he had know for a fact we would have a full days play we would have batted on but if in doubt go for the win I say. Our bowlers are our strength, if we can't back them then whats the point. Next week lets just pick 11 batsmen and play for a draw from day 1 then

marchy22

yea h a draw for bith sides and not giving them 16 points for a win when they are relegation rivals

michael shaw

yes you do you end up looking stupid and losing,however we ain,t lost yet.

Overs

poolynorm: There are 35 overs remaining, 68.3 have been bowled so far.

3:42pm

BrianT

I think you're doing a good enough job with confidence without contemplating losing this game Marchy?

Ed Syers

For what? A three point draw? You don't get anywhere in sport if you don't try and win.

marchy22

exactly, no one was expecting the declartion, this defest os gonna shatter an already low on confidence side

michael shaw

come on ed,336,is a gettable score in one day,durham had got 275 in 78.0 0vers its not rocket science,if we had done it on that pitch why? should,ent they? we needed to bat out last night at least.

marchy22

no cos we cant afford to lose to teans like yorks cos we rnt gonna be fighting for the title

CollingwoodFTM

Haway lads, a couple of wickets and we're right back in this.

poolynorm

Just a matter of interest how many overs maximum are left?

Haslam

Average 4th innings here, let alone in April, yorks last few innings and the fact we rolled them over in the first innings. Throw in two days with time lost to weather and i think most pundits and fans support the dec. as do most stats. I'm sure if we batted on this morning then had them 8 down only to lose more time this evening colly would be getting more abuse.

marchy22

he didnt but batting for those seven pvers wpuld have meant we wpuld have got a drae at worst

Ed Syers

Hindsight! How could Colly have known we would be in this position yesterday?

marchy22

how can it be the right decision when we r gonna lose, pathetic

BrianT

Agreed Marchy. Which side are you on? Hmm. Thought not.

200 runs for Yorkshire

Yorkshire have brought up their 200, 4 wickets down. Root 113* & Balance 10*. Trail bu 135 runs. Few quick wickets will change this game- come on boys!

3:35pm

marchy22

theres positive and stupidity

michael shaw

why declare last night there was at least another 50 runs in the hutch,surley the object of the game is not to lose,if we,de declared even after 4 overs if this morning the least we would of got was a draw,a really bad decision to declare,you could see the pitch was improving so why give them a chance,i guess it was hero or zero,but they are looking the best bet now,mind you,there,s a new ball to come soon.

Haslam

I think we're going to just have to disagree over this marchy, irrespective of the result i still think it was the correct decision.

Ed Syers

Nothing wrong with being positive.

marchy22

we should have put the game out of their reach before worrying about trying to have a wicket last night

brandonia

Is there any turn for Scotty?

Ed Syers

And a couple of wickets last night would have done even more damage to them.

marchy22

no its not, seven overs at 7 an over would have put the game past these, its shocking

Ed Syers

Easy to say that now marchy.

raydetmold

the only shocking thing about Durham CCC is picking Smith every single game no matter what

marchy22

grasping at straws, it was a shocking declartion

Haslam

We got a wicket not long ago, though agree another wouldn't go amiss

raydetmold

Come on Durham , couple of quick wickets changes everything

raydetmold

Come on Durham , couple of quick wickets changes everything

marchy22

they are 160-2 since the first twenty minutes this morning, where is one let alone six wickets coming from

Haslam

Hope none of the players are thinking like that marchy. I reckon yorks marginally ahead but 1 wicket changes that. Any more and we're well ahead.

poolynorm

Just heard from the tearoom there's loads of humble pie.Freshly made from Winlaton.Should be ready at half 5.Anyone know if the green icy's at the ground?

marchy22

well done yorks on a victory they should never have been given a chance off, crap declartion

Century for Root

100 runs for Root off 180 balls, 14 boundaries. He is providing the resistance for Yorkshire who are 185-4, 151 runs behind as we look for 6 more wickets

3:10pm

Borthwick Back

Scott Borthwick has returned to the field after hurting his hand a couple of overs ago. He Comes back into the attack from the Finchale End.

3:08pm

stuartp

:( gotta go take my daughter to a kids party

stuartp

Your right christoff, only 3 points for a draw, so even more worth the risk.

Appeal

Big appeal off Smith but again the umpire shakes his head as we continue to hunt for the 5th wicket.

3:05pm

christoff

3 points for a draw isn't it?

stuartp

I would have said 60% Durham win, 25% draw, and 15% Yorks win last night. Still similar now, and don't forget rain was predicted for this morning overnight, so we were looking at a shortened day.

BrianT

Don't even think there was a chance of losing. Still don't. But Yorks have guts. Team I followed as a boy.

Bowling Change

Thorp into the attack from the Finchale End. Yorkshire 170-4, 166 runs behind.

3:00pm

stuartp

Risking 4 points for the draw for a better than even chance of 16 points for a win.

Frankjw

2 good overs from Stokes - more please

SonOfTheDesert

Nothing wrong with the declaration, even if we do go on to lose. Better to try and win than meekly accept a draw.

Run out chance

Almost another wicket but umpire says he was in safe in his crease. Looked close.

2:53pm

BrianT

StuartP. Funny but cruel.

stuartp

These are the last two specialist batsmen, after this it is all rounders and wanabes

Frankjw

Marchy - if you were a Yorks fan would you feel confident of winning?

christoff

Get in keep them coming marchy I bet you your wrong again

Stokes claims his first

Stokes claims his 1st wicket, Bairstow goes for 26 after pulling straight to Rushworth. Yorkshire 162-4 still requiriing 174 runs.

2:49pm

Ed Syers

If we can get Root out sharpish we'll be laughing.

Haslam

Whatever happens i think the dec. Was a good one. I can handle losing when going for a win.

stuartp

So this isn't you then Marchy? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=sQqeidrlDyw

marchy22

yorks r still gonna win

raydetmold

He said hes fine Norm , god we needed that wicket

chrissafc

Wicket. What a silly shot

stuartp

Gone, gotim.

marchy22

pathetic this from durham

poolynorm

Good afternoon Herr Ray.How's your mate Rokes doing?

chrissafc

Yorkshire are cruising.

Injury

Borthwick has been struck on the hand by a drive from Bairstow & has had to leave the field. Hopefully nothing serious. Yorkshire 158-3 trailing by 178.

2:44pm

marchy22

i have never said anything of the sort

stuartp

Marchy what is it you always used to say? "Life don't talk to me about life" wasn't it?

marchy22

crap decision to declare last night

poolynorm

Meant to say young George to come good this safta.Marchy take the next over until further notice.No over stepping and no picking the seam.Brando, if your handling's improved put on the big gloves.We'll have 3 slips and bryn at short leg.Keep positive.

marchy22

dross

150 Runs

150 up for Yorkshire, 3 wickets down. Root 75* & Bairstow 25*.

2:37pm

Bowling Change

Borthwick comes into the attack to replace Onions. Yorkshire 145-3, 191 runs to win.

2:33pm

christoff

Marchy your so negative 2 quick wickets totally change this and we are more than capable

CollingwoodFTM

Come on lads.

marchy22

we arent gonna win, gift wrapped yorks the win

BrianT

You here Marchy?

brandonia

They're in the NEPL D2 pacific, starts next week.

morzee

patience lads. add 2 wickets to the score and it's a very different game again.

marchy22

pathetic

chrissafc

Brave to persist with stokes

pacificpaul

hows Brandon doing in the new DCL ?

Bowling Change

Onions comes into the attack from the Finchale End. A repeat of Day 2 and a 5 wicket haul would be very nice right now! Yorkshire 134-3, trailing by 202.

2:17pm

marchy22

yorks still cruising

Looking for 4th wicket

Durham still trying for the 4th wicket here. Yorkshire 131-3 trailing by 205 runs. Root has moved to 68* & Bairstow 11*.

2:06pm

christoff

3 wickets needed this session still early no panic

christoff

3 wickets needed this session still early no panic

brandonia

Happy New Year Norm!! Can we not re-negotiate your contract to the longer format instead of the short stuff? Much prefer your captaincy in the proper cricket!

marchy22

we need one quick

raydetmold

Good Afternoon everything couple of wickets straight after lunch would put us in a good position

Session 2- Day 4

Players back out on the ground. Yorkshire resume at 114-3. 7 wickets for the Durham win.

1:43pm

bryn

aftas norm long time no hear! was a tad concerned you'd took your pc in for repair+had forgotten to delete the history

Ed Syers

Bairstow and Root are more than capable of scoring quick runs. Important partnership for Yorks.

chrissafc

65 overs to go. They need 222 to win 3.41 an over. Have a feeling it will be close

poolynorm

Season's greetings everyone.Thought I would check on how things are going.Nice to see Brando Darlow missing me.Due to the salary cap regulations my availibility is restricted to the odd 40/40 game.Slighty disappointed in the Blaydon Bomber's negativity but hopefully he will learn the virtue of patience.Young George to come this safta and Durhamto win by 50 just after 5.Anyone got a spare KT jumper or the recipe for the perfect MB.Enjoy the sun.

christoff

Another bonus of the early declaration is the second new ball will get a good few overs benefit

chrissafc

Yorkshire are playing to win. Credit to them

chrissafc

Fascinating game here. Both teams giving it everything. Root looks an outstanding talent.

Ed Syers

This one could go down to the wire. It'll be interesting to see whether Yorks go for the win.

7 more wickets required

After a good first half hour where Rushworth snared 2 wickets, Yorkshire clawed their way back in with Root 58* & Captain Gayle putting on 82 for 3rd wicket. Jennings with the other wicket just before the lunch break. Big afternoon coming up. Equation is 7 wickets for Durham to win, 222 runs for Yorkshire.

1:02pm

Stevos

Get in!!!!! Right, straight through Bairstow!!!!! He's gone right off the boil!!!!!

christoff

Get in still on target to win

marchy22

wicket?

christoff

Are they 3 down?

Jennings gets breakthrough!

WICKET! And Jennings gets the wicket! Collingwood takes the catch at first slip & Gale is gone. Just what we needed. Yorkshire 103-3

12:54pm

stuartp

And if we win it in the last half a dozen overs it will look like a really good decision.

christoff

It's brilliant cricket marchy if they knock off 300+ full credit to them still think we will win though

chrissafc

Gerrin

Stevos

Yeah that decision last night starting to look like a reckless gamble. Bit out of character for the captain.

chrissafc

Wicket

marchy22

pathetic this

Bowling Change

Jennings brought into the attack to mix things up before the lunch break. Can he get the much needed wicket?

12:50pm

marchy22

yorks shouldnt have been in the position to have a chance to win, we should hqve batted them out of the game last night

chrissafc

Jennings on now

100 up for Yorkshire & 50 for Root

Yorkshire are 102-2. Root has just hit 50* off 100 balls with 8 boundaries whilst Gale has moved to 39*. 10 minutes until lunch, we need to break this p/ship.

12:49pm

christoff

If we can get one before lunch another 3 in next session and 4 in the last

pacificpaul

pacific paul here, 7.46pm here listening online, come on guys 1 wkt will tilt this match

christoff

All 3 results still possible going to be exciting

christoff

No fielding restrictions either will help us

marchy22

they hardly need to go for it, just over 200 in two sessions isnt that much of an ask

stuartp

Yorks still need 240, even if they were to go for it they would have to chase hard on a wearing pitch against good bowlers.

Change of Bowling

Borthwick comes into the attack as Durham search for the breakthrough before lunch. Yorkshire 93-2, trailing by 243.

12:41pm

christoff

Thinking alike Stuart p

christoff

You wouldn't say that if we took a couple of wickets which we nearly did

stuartp

And if we had got the 2 wickets we picked up this morning in those 7 overs?

chrissafc

Here comes borthwick

marchy22

those seven overs last night were better spent putting the game out of their reach

Ed Syers

I just hope we can get it before lunch.

christoff

1 wicket changes everything keep the faith marchy

stuartp

Nah, long way to go yet Marchy, still a few chances flying around as well.

marchy22

looking a poor decision to declare last night, yorks r cruising

Stevos

Desperately need to find a way to get one of these two out. Do you reckon it's worth giving Borthwick a few overs and try something different? Durham haven't bowled any spin in the match so far. Could be an expensive gamble........

chrissafc

Comfortable these 2.

CollingwoodFTM

Haway lads. Let's get a few more before lunch.

marchy22

seeming easy for them now

marchy22

come on

50 p/ship

50 p/ship btwn Root 36* & Gale 24* as Yorkshire move to 75-2, trailing by 261. Searching for that wicket before lunch.

12:23pm

CollingwoodFTM

Haway lads. Let's get a few more before lunch.

marchy22

we need two more before lunch, haway

Stevos

Yeah Root looks like a tough nut despite having the body of a gangly 16 year old. I reckon England have found a good one there!!!!

christoff

Good start come on lads keep them coming

marchy22

defo barandonia, probably a century

brandonia

Yeah, Root looking good for 50 here like. Nailed on.

marchy22

haway lads

marchy22

lets have root out now

brandonia

I said ages ago I'd rather Root opened like. Compton perhaps 5/6.

Stevos

Root or Compton to open for England? Hyperthetical of course as I'd imagine they'll stick with Compton. I'd go with Root as he seems to have a lot more fight!!!!!

brandonia

A third wicket in this session would be great.

Berb

Come on lads

Yorkshire 50

50 runs for Yorkshire up. Root 28* & Gale 9*, Yorkshire 50-2.

11:57am

Appeal

Big appeal off Stokes but the umpire doesn't move. Boys thought they had the Yorkshire Captain then.

11:56am

Change of bowler

Thorp has come on at the Finchale end. Yorkshire 48-2 trailing by 288.

11:53am

marchy22

lets have another one plz

bryn

needs a hug :(

BrianT

That's what I thought two years ago and they lasted the day out. Nearly did it at Headingley too.

Stevos

Can't see Yorkshire putting up too much resistance here. Apart from Root perhaps.

BrianT

Apart from Scotty who did his bit in the last game.

BrianT

Could I point out that every member of the team has so far contributed with bat or ball in this game?

marchy22

great start, rushy doing the business again, i will admit to not being his biggest fan but he has proved hes worth

brandonia

Aye. Rushy only gets a game because he's Mustard's cousin...... (incredible amount of sarcasm intentionally added).

auldtimer

Mustard and Rushworth, where've I seen those two mentioned before?

brandonia

That declaration looking a very good decision (for the time being).

Another for Rushworth

Rushworth with his second of the morning dismisses Jaques for a duck who is caught behind. Yorkshire 23-2

11:21am

chrissafc

2 down

brandonia

Gerrin Rushy!! Pair for Jaques.

Rushworth Strikes

Rushworth dismisses Lyth. Yorkshire 23-1 trailing by 313

11:17am

Maidens

Good first 2 overs from Onions & Rushworth- 2 maidens to start the day.

11:08am

Play underway on the final day

Big final day here. We need the 10 wickets for victory whilst Yorkshire who will resume at 17-0 require 319 runs.

11:00am

Sun is Shining

Sun is shining here at Emirates Durham. Second home win of the season?

10:23am
