Mark

300-2 at tea tomorrow Haslam!

bryn

@ = spidermonkey....who knew?

roker1973

think this will be a close game catch yeer lads the morra

Haslam

Notts noses ahead, plus they get the fillip of an early wicket. If we're still in at tea it should be a good match though

Mark

Cheers for the updates!

Mark

Lol

Durham

Thanks for joining the LMC today, stay tuned tomorrow for more updates from me and Brandon.

6:20pm

Mark

Shame about the wicket but after the starts we've had it could have been a lot worse.

Haslam

Yeah we'll easily beat west ham, its totally in the bag as our recent form shows. Probably follow it up by stuffing qpr then ***nal too, what could possibly go wrong...

safcluke

Anyone heading down to the ICG for the seconds games this week v Scotland?

brandonia

Thats it. Close. 34-1. Notts probably slightly ahead with having the runs on the board. See you all tomorrow folks, stay sexy. Peace and love x x

Close of Play

Durham end day one 34-1 after 10 overs. Smith 3* and Rushworth 0*. They trail Notts by 286.

6:18pm

roker1973

brandon ray is a typical geordie nowt up a height

raydetmold

We will beat West ham on saturday , so we are safe anyway Bran

Haslam

Doesn't everyone hate villa? I thought that was just a safe assumption.

roker1973

eye grange villa

brandonia

One ball to go.

brandonia

You want Newcastle to go down like Ray?!

brandonia

Two balls.

raydetmold

COME ON VILLA

roker1973

im fishing in lancs but got internet sorted for the match the neet

One over left

One over left today.

6:16pm

raydetmold

evening Roker , bo. llox haha

brandonia

Rushy sees out the over. One to go.

Haslam

I reckon their score was par or over. Runs seem to fly off the wicket but there's the odd demon too. A fair wicket for a result after 4 days, see if it spins. If so we are in trouble ..

New Batsman

New man at the crease is Chris Rushworth.

6:13pm

safcluke

Haway Rushy, 100 for him tomorrow.

roker1973

ray did you watch the cricket score on saturday lol

brandonia

Rushworth.

brandonia

Chesney Hughes current unbeaten 169 is now his highest score.

safcluke

Wheez in now? Suspense is killing us..

roker1973

cheers marra

Haslam

Notts ao 320. Durham 35-1

roker1973

whats the state ov play lads just logged on as im doon lancashire and just sorted internet oot

bryn

always wanted to ask that...

brandonia

Rocky got a shooter by the sounds of things. Unlucky really.

marchy22

what a shame rocky, great start

Haslam

Did he not watch cowan at all? Ah well, better than the 7-2 we would all have accepted a fortnight ago

brandonia

1.5

bryn

how many overs left?

brandonia

Rushworth.

brandonia

Hope not.

raydetmold

nigh***chman ?

safcluke

Shame but not surprising. Night watchman in next? Breese?

Wicket!

Stoneman goes for 30 lbw to Shahzad. Durham 34-1.

6:10pm

stuartp

:( Oh no Rocky makes a bright 30 AGAIN

brandonia

34-1. Rocky lbw Shahzad 30.

brandonia

Crap.

Haslam

He tore through the Aussies at the oval in 2009 to win us the ashes and be likened to mcgrath. He hasn't kicked on though

marchy22

he hasnt the heart when conditions dont suit him

safcluke

This is true, but he's not overrated. Overrated is Steven Finn...

brandonia

Did nowt in India though Luke.

marchy22

ive never called braoad names

safcluke

Broad on his day is unplayable. Just ask Dravid/Laxman and Sachin about Trent Bridge, July 2011.

Haslam

I don't dislike broad, on his day he is as good as any in the world but he has got to an age where he shouldn't be as inconsistent really. I'd prefer onions bowling, and maybe even batting...

brandonia

Up at Leeds - WJ Durston c Bresnan b Plunkett 3. Derby 279-4. Hughes still unbeaten on 164.

stuartp

Most bowlers are over rated. Anything below 3 is generally quite tidy.

Re: Marchy22

Comments like that are fine Marchy, but don't resort to name calling.

6:06pm

stuartp

Better than we started the season when it was more like 34 for 7 gone

safcluke

Err, how?

marchy22

broad is over rated like

brandonia

7 gone. 34-0.

brandonia

Oooooooh matron.

Re: Brandonia

Behave!

6:04pm

brandonia

Sorry, typographical error. I blame Apple's 'AutoCorrect'.

Update

Can we just call Broad, Broad from now on please!

6:02pm

brandonia

Smudge single.

Six overs in

Durham are 33-0 after six with Rocky 30* and Smith 2. Trail by 287.

6:01pm

brandonia

Hope so stuartp.

safcluke

Some real dislike towards Broad on here.

brandonia

Shahzad into the attack to replace Brat.

stuartp

Just hoping that Rocky has put his tendency to get a bright 30 then get out firmly behind him. He's always had the talent, just needs not to lose concentration.

brandonia

Rocky with another four. Moves to 30*.

brandonia

Four more to Rocky.

raydetmold

would be a superb day if we get to the close wothout losing a wicket

Haslam

Lead under 300, chipping away. No wicket tonight and its our day.

christoff

Great stuff this advantage Durham

brandonia

Quarter century partnership.

brandonia

Single to Smudger.

brandonia

Woooooooah we're halfway there, wooooooooah.......... continue, ad nauseum.

Four!

Another boundary for Rocky as he crashes a Broad deliver to the fence. He moves to 22*.

5:55pm

brandonia

Rocky 22* with another four.

brandonia

Hope it stays that way until well past 3 pm tomorrow!!

Update

Rocky looking good so far, hitting the ball nicely.

5:54pm

brandonia

Is the ball/pitch doing much auldtimer or Simon??

brandonia

3 more to Rocky. 18 not out for him.

raydetmold

good solid start

raydetmold

good solid start

Haslam

Just listening on the radio but it sounds like a fast outfield. Decent connection is good runs

brandonia

16-0 from 4 overs.

After 3 overs

Durham are 13-0 after 3 overs. Stoneman 12* and Smith 0*. Durham trail by 307.

5:49pm

Mark

Agreed Haslam, the middle order should be able to capitalise if the top 3 can see off the new ball.

brandonia

Deffo mac. Leg bye.

mac6

As long as we are 0 down by close

brandonia

I'd be satisfied if we're 12-0 at Close to be fair.

Haslam

Don't mind if smith is 5* at close to be honest. He has started to look better but still struggling to impress. Just hang around and take the shine off, our middle order and tail are good if protected

brandonia

Maiden. Only 6 an over now the RR.

Haslam

See if sehwag stoneman can repeat his feats from a few days back

brandonia

Run rate slowing considerably this over :-(

brandonia

Dot ball.

Bowling

Luke Fletcher will share the new ball with Broad.

5:40pm

brandonia

Fletcher to Smith.

Four!

Four more for Rocky as he moves to 12*. Three boundaries off the opening over from Broad.

5:40pm

brandonia

Afternoon Ray.

raydetmold

superb positive start

brandonia

12-0 (1 over).

brandonia

Long may it continue Haslam!

chrissafc

go on lads

Haslam

Worth noting brand, brat wayward. 12 runs from 4 balls is it?

brandonia

Rocky 12 not out :-).

Fours!!

Rocky gets off the mark with back-to-back boundaries. He moves to 8*.

5:38pm

Bowling

Stuart Broad will open the bowling for Notts.

5:37pm

brandonia

Dot ball.

Haslam

And another. 2 balls, 8 runs

brandonia

8-0 off 2 balls.

Haslam

4 off the first ball come on rocky

brandonia

Rocky off the mark with a 4.

brandonia

Brat opening the bowling.

Durham

Mark Stoneman and Will Smith will open the innings for Durham.

5:36pm

Haslam

10 overs is enough to make a mark though, take some shine off the new ball and get a start. It's when you have 5 overs or less to face i think you've got nothing to gain really

brandonia

Stoneman and Smith opening.

brandonia

Chanderpaul out for 4 at Headingley. Derbyshire 275-3.

Haslam

Good effort, my concern is that its a 250-300 par wicket and i think we'll do well to get up to their score. They recovered well, if we had held chances i doubt they would have got 200

Durham

Durham will have 10 overs to bat this evening.

5:28pm

brandonia

Be positive I say, 30-0 at Close. Notts clearly were today. Nearly 4 an over in their innings and fortune perhaps favouring the brave.

Stan Drop

Gettin Rushy! Good effort to get them all out in the day. Hope for no more wickets tonight and a good start in the morning.

Update

Good effort by the lads to bowl Notts out for 320, after they won the toss and elected to bat.

5:27pm

auldtimer

Not sure what to make of this now, 10 overs to bat today doesn't fill me with confidence.

Wicket!

Rushworth strikes as he gets the wicket of Fletcher for 2 as he's caught by Wood. Notts all out for 320.

5:26pm

safcluke

Hope we are /0 at the close.

brandonia

10 overs to bat tonight. Wood caught Fletcher off the bowling of Rushworth for 2.

brandonia

All out.

Mark

Might be best if these 2 managed to survive without scoring many runs and then we take last wicket with no time to start batting tonight.

christoff

Still a decent effort this going on what auldtimer has said about fast outfield

brandonia

Derbyshire 268-2. Madsen out for 93. Hughes unbeaten on 160!

Stan Drop

Max bowling points. Hurrah!

brandonia

11 overs maximum for Durham tonight.

Change in Bowling

Graham Onions replaces Stokes.

5:19pm

New Batsman

New man at the crease is Luke Fletcher.

5:19pm

raydetmold

their last man has a highest first class score of 92

Wicket

Rushworth strikes as he removes Shahzad for 2, as he's caught behind by Mustard. Notts 316-9.

5:18pm

brandonia

Luke Fletcher averages 15. Not the worst number 11 in the world.

auldtimer

Rushworth deserves that for bowling against the wind all day.

brandonia

12 overs to bat if we get the wicket this over.

Haslam

But it often seems that the popular bowler just gets given the easier task really

brandonia

Shahzad c Mustard b Rushworth 2.

brandonia

Wicket!

Haslam

Makes sense that your wicket to wicket bowler has the wind behind him and you want your swing bowler bowling into the wind as it slows the ball down further up the track and helps late swing ( in my experience)

auldtimer

We keep throwing the ball at the stumps for no reason.

Change in Bowling

Rushworth replaces Breese in the attack.

5:14pm

brandonia

Rushworth shares the new ball. Another decision that surprises me to say the least......

81 overs bowled

Notts are 310-8 after 81 overs. Swann 2* and Shahzad 1*.

5:14pm

auldtimer

Onions has only bowled two overs from the pavilion end today, looks like Rushworth gets to run into the wind again. I've a good idea which end Broad will take.

marchy22

i predict our batters will make it look like a minefield

brandonia

I really hope the boundaries are as plentiful for us.......

Re: Brandonia

Don't apologise. You're keeping me on my toes.

5:10pm

brandonia

Sorry Simo, I've just got nowt better to do!

Re: Brandonia

Every time, Brandon lol.

5:09pm

New Ball Taken

Durham have taken the new ball.

5:08pm

brandonia

New ball taken.

New Batsman

New man at the crease is Ajmal Shahzad.

5:03pm

Stevos

Durham batting the last 15 overs brand? Terrifying!!!!!

brandonia

15 overs to bat if we get them this over.

Stevos

If we're not careful here we might have to bat.

Wicket!

Stokes gets the wicket of Broad for 46 caught at slip by Breese. Notts 307-8.

5:01pm

brandonia

Sorry, no, was end of the over. Third wicket for Stokes.

bryn

been on the raw meat brando?

brandonia

Breesey on a hat-trick!

brandonia

It isn't just you. Brat OUT!

Noz

Is it just me or is Mr Broad not very popular?? :-)

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Graeme Swann.

4:59pm

safcluke

Well done gareth, important break through.

brandonia

Spoilt Brat is going to get a 50 like. Here's the plastic geordie in now.

Update

Big wicket for Durham, but a good innings by Taylor who falls three short of a century. His innings lasted 189 balls.

4:59pm

Mark

Excellent

bryn

Cool

Wicket!

Breese gets Taylor for 97 caught behind by Mustard. Notts 305-7.

4:58pm

brandonia

Wicket

Stevos

Get in

Stevos

Really need to keep it tighter. It's already getting away from us this. Broad will open up if we don't get him out soon.

brandonia

Typical this from the spoilt brat. He can't do it for England. Most ovverrated cricketer of this generation.

Frankjw

Stokes has just bowled a maiden!

Update

19 overs left today.

4:55pm

Appeal!

Stokes goes up looking for lbw against Taylor, but the umpire says not out.

4:54pm

Mark

That's a ridiculous run rate!

brandonia

Last 10 overs - 68-0

Update

After 75 overs Notts are 303-6 with Taylor 95* and Broad 44*. Partnership 80*.

4:50pm

Noz

Keenasmustard - was the other way around. "The bowlers Holding the batsmen's Willey" - Funny as owt. I remember him commentating with Aggers, and Botham was out hit wicket. Aggers commented "He couldn't quite get his leg over (the stumps)!!" Brian Johnston was wetting himself

brandonia

Derbyshire 226-1.

300 up

Notts bring up their 300 in the 75th over.

4:48pm

brandonia

Yep. Here - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Cg3stiU9V_M

mac6

I have heard that one keenas again not sure it's true though

Re: keenasmustard

I think that's true!

4:45pm

brandonia

My word, Breese has had some tap. Why persist with him if he's getting no success?

keenasmustard

It's always believed Brian Johnstone once said "The batsman's Holding, the bowler's Willey". Not sure if it's true though.

raydetmold

no panic Mark , we´ve got Smith batting

Change in Bowling

Stokes replaces Wood in the attack.

4:42pm

Mark

Must be a flat pitch-until we bat on it !

brandonia

Lillee c Willey b Dilley (nearly in the gully) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oh4iF_Si_2E

keenasmustard

Hoped we could have kept them below 300.

brandonia

67 run partnership. Upsetting this.

Mark

Yep, they have a v strong batting lineup right down to 11

raydetmold

many thanks , need to break this partnership quickly before they take the game away from us

Change in Bowling

Breese replaces Rushworth in the attack.

4:37pm

RE: raydetmold

He did play for Leicestershire but I think he's been at Notts for the past couple of years.

4:36pm

Mark

He used to play for Leicester, think this his 2nd season with Notts

raydetmold

Afternoon everybody , is this the Taylor who played for Leicestershire last season ?

marchy22

i see onions is under used again, just keep him tje new ball when they will already be passed 300

keenasmustard

What's this? Durham releasing details about the 2nd XI? Is the Cold War finally over?

70 overs bowled

Notts are 276-6 after 70 overs. Taylor 87* and Broad 26*. Partnership 53*.

4:31pm

marchy22

braod being dropped is costing, so three drops have cost well over ahundred runs

bryn

...spidermonkey!

Stan Drop

There is a scorecad entry for one of the Ashes Tests in Australia which reads Lillee, ct Willey b Dilley

brandonia

50 partnership for the 7th wicket.

marchy22

id imagine he is unable to bowl thats why breese is playinh

Second XI team announcement

Our Second XI side take on Scotland in a 50 over, 40 over & 2xT20s starting tomorrow at home. See squad and fixtures here: http://www.durhamccc.co.uk/news/2nd-xi-take-on-scotland/

4:27pm

brandonia

41 run partnership.

brandonia

Surely Scotty is worth a twirl?? With the ball now 69 overs old.....

keenasmustard

I always think a captain should try the unexpected. So let Mustard have a few overs.

Update

Notts are 251-6 after 67 overs. Taylor 65* and Broad 24*. Partnership 28*.

4:19pm

brandonia

Runs galore here again..... Same as after Lunch.

Fours!

Broad hits a couple of boundaries off Wood to move to 16*.

4:15pm

mac6

A few lbw appeals turned down today

Bowling

Rushworth shares the ball after Tea with Wood.

4:12pm

Appeal!

Wood and the slips go up looking for lbw against Broad but the umpire says not out.

4:11pm

keenasmustard

Surprised that Colly & Benks don't bowl. Benks was bowling for the MCC in Dubai at the start of the season.

Bowling

Wood opens things up after Tea.

4:08pm

keenasmustard

Thought he was older than that.

Evening session

The players are back out for the evening session.

4:08pm

safcluke

41. Answered my own question.

safcluke

Christ, how old is Churchy now??

Mark

Ponting not playing in the IPL again and Gilchrist dropped. Not an IPL fan but ridiculous to drop captains after a few bad games especially in t20 where luck plays a big part.

bryn

Your welcome :)

safcluke

How interesting....

bryn

In germany they call the @ symbol the spider monkey apparantley

safcluke

Anyway, haway, couple more wickets.

keenasmustard

@safcluke it's the TMS of county cricket. Now where's that pigeon?

safcluke

Conversation on here can turn slightly random at times. ha

brandonia

Reckon PW gave Both the willeys??

safcluke

We should be looking to restrict them to 270ish imo.

brandonia

Aye, tend to agree with that. I think if we can skittle them for sub 300 on Day 1 - seeing how they opted to bat - we'd have to be reasonably content.

keenasmustard

According to Boycott, when Botham was in the England side he always used to wind other players up in the dressing room but the only one he left alone was Peter Willey. Think he was frightened of him.

christoff

If we can get the last 4 wickets for 60 that would be a great effort

safcluke

Peter Willeys boy is at Northants. Decent bowler by all accounts. (Peice of pointless, random info for you all)

keenasmustard

Aye could have been worse

chrissafc

*that

chrissafc

I don't think they has been a bad session for Durham

Tea

It's Tea at Trent Bridge. Notts are 232-6 after 64 overs. Taylor 64* and Broad 7*. Partnership is 9*.

3:48pm

brandonia

Legend is Peter Willey.

brandonia

Tea - 232-6. Notts' session.

auldtimer

If smith had caught broad it would have catch of the season, diving left and forward saved 4 runs.

chrissafc

that said peter willey the other umpire was born in sedgefield

brandonia

Derbyshire 179-1 (Hughes 110).

chrissafc

Umpire Garrett from Nottingham (copyright Brandonia)

safcluke

Swann and Fletcher can both bat.. Still hard work to be done.

Appeal

Onions and the slips are up looking for lbw against Taylor, but Umpire Garrett says not out.

3:45pm

chrissafc

stick at it lads

Update

Broad was on seven there. Notts 231-6.

3:44pm

Dropped!

Smith drops Broad in the gully of the bowling of Wood. Difficult chance.

3:43pm

brandonia

Broad dropped by Smith off Wood.

brandonia

Six from Broad.

Update

After 62 overs Notts are 224-6 with Taylor 62* and Broad 1*.

3:41pm

Maiden

Onions sends down a maiden in the 62nd over.

3:40pm

safcluke

I wonder if Cook will fancy the long drive up to Durham on Sunday for the YB 40 game.

little_smudge

Really really pleased to see Woody making the most of his chance, long may it continue!

Edge!

Broad edges the ball but it drops just short of Breese.

3:38pm

christoff

another one we could do with getting early, once he is can smash them all over

brandonia

Ha'way Bunny, break his fingers!!

Mackem_Dave

6 is definately my favourite number now. To think only a couple of weeks ago it was 3.

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Stuart Broad.

3:36pm

brandonia

Deffo back in the balance christoff. Another wicket before Tea would probably make it a very even session to be fair.

Mark

Fantastic to get him out quick, he's been a thorn in the side too many times.

chrissafc

well in woody lad

safcluke

Well done Mark.

christoff

I'd say even match again now, maybe even Durham ahaead from auldtimer has reported from the ground

auldtimer

Watching our lads bowl seems to suggest that this pitch has a good and bad end to be on. It's all happening from the Radcliffe road end and looks dead from the pavilion end.

keenasmustard

Now lets finish 'em off.

brandonia

2-1 to the Durham lads!!!

brandonia

Great work Stokes too, makes a good catch to redeem himself (slightly ;-))

Wicket!

Wood gets another one as he gets the wicket of Read caught at slip by Stokes for 2. Notts 223-6.

3:33pm

keenasmustard

YEEEEESSSSS Woody.

brandonia

Gerrin Woody!!

brandonia

WICKET!!

brandonia

Derbyshire going great guns at Headingley after being inserted - 155-1

brandonia

Probably to Notts' advantage to be fair.

safcluke

He's behind Bairstow now aswell.

safcluke

Compton is a different position. Root is simply just a better player down the order.

brandonia

Aye, he's not England class like. Be a very successful County cricketer I'd think.

keenasmustard

Taylor was supposed to be the next big thing for England. Now he's been overtaken by Root and Compton.

safcluke

Hes too small

brandonia

Not over his head, on his head!!

safcluke

Aye but they were probably wide. Get it straight at him over his head.

brandonia

Is that sarcasm luke?? He's just pulled two long hops for four......

safcluke

For the 20th time. BANG IT IN SHORT AT TAYLOR!!!

brandonia

Ha'way Bunny man, pitch it up!!

safcluke

Haway Bunny

Change in Bowling

Onions replaces Breese in the attack.

3:26pm

Mark

Exactly, everyone drops catches but no does it on purpose. I didn't mean you brandonia! Was referring to some over the top criticism fom someone else.

christoff

another good batsmen at the crease, a few more to come too, lets get them early before they get settled

chrissafc

nice to see mark wood get a wicket. nice lad who wants to do well

brandonia

I don't intend to criticise, I'm just stating facts. 110 runs those two drops cost us. Granted nobody drops them intentionally.

keenasmustard

Nearly had another one.

Appeal!

Wood and the slips go up looking for caught behind against Taylor, but the umpire says not out.

3:24pm

christoff

You can't catch them all Mark

Mark

Excellent, we need that wicket badly. Don't think people dropping catches can be criticised, it's just unfortunate

New Batsman

New man at the crease is Chris Read.

3:23pm

Update

Wood has deserved that wicket, bowled well all morning without reward. Well done Woody.

3:22pm

auldtimer

Wood deserved that wkt, he's bowled well.

christoff

Get in Woody lad, come on lads lets have a few quick ones!!!!

keenasmustard

Woody you beauty.

christoff

marchy most of what you say is rubbish but I think that last comment tops the lot

Wicket!

Wood strikes with his first ball as he removes Mullany for 80 as he's caught by Breese. Notts 209-5.

3:21pm

brandonia

Shoulda been 111-5. Now its 209-5 after a partnership of 111.

Change in Bowling

Mark Wood replaces Stokes in the attack.

3:20pm

safcluke

Whats this Peppa Pig craic?

brandonia

I called it :)

58 overs in

Notts are 209-4 after 58. Mullaney 80* and Taylor 50*. Partnership 111.

3:20pm

brandonia

WOODY!!!!!

chrissafc

anyone going to ladies night?

brandonia

Should get Peppa Pig on to bowl a few overs.

brandonia

Declaration bowling from Breese!!

brandonia

Surely Wood is due another spell.

auldtimer

The only negative I could say I've seen today is the two dropped catches, and the last ball Stoked just bowled.

brandonia

Notts well on top now. Stokes fires down 4 byes down the leg side.

200 up

Notts bring up their 200 in the 57th over.

3:14pm

keenasmustard

This is going well.

Update

Mullaney crashes two sixes off Breese as he and Taylor bring up their 100 partnership.

3:12pm

brandonia

100 partnership.

safcluke

Hope Stokes repays us by scoring a hundred...

brandonia

Two sixes in a row.

brandonia

Six to Mullaney. He's now scored 62 since being dropped. Thats 100 runs combined.

safcluke

I've got a ticket for Day 1 so far, might buy for day three. Not booking anything for the Sat incase we have a pre season game somewhere interesting....

chrissafc

Cheers Luke.

safcluke

Saturday 10th August Chris.

chrissafc

Good lad is Dave, always replies on twitter. does a lot of work for sky sports doing football commentary as well

brandonia

Yeah and Marty. These two nailed on for a ton partnership.

chrissafc

save me looking as i'm lazy. what is the date of day 2 for the ashes test at CLS?

marchy22

we rnt gonna get one though

safcluke

We need a wicket.

54 overs bowled

Notts are 183-4 after 54 overs. Mullaney 61* and Taylor 47*. Partnership is 85*.

3:07pm

chrissafc

is it dave bracegirlde who is commentating?

marchy22

this is depressing

brandonia

No, I'm going off the commentary and it sounds like we're bowling A LOT of wide, short fourballs. I trust the two lads employed by the BBC to be accurate in their description.

bryn

Theyre a couple of diggers these two :(

keenasmustard

I need to start panciking

safcluke

They could give Smith a bowl.

auldtimer

Re brandonia, "poor from Durham" Are you here watching?

safcluke

How many overs has Breese bowled?

chrissafc

we've just got to stick at it and try different things.

brandonia

Who's condemning them? I'm just upset at the dropped catches. 2 drops thus far have cost us 86 runs.

auldtimer

Durham are being positive and attacking the batsmen, they are playing a hard game. Colly was applauded for a positive declaration, yet when they play positive they get condemned.

50 for Mullaney

Mullaney brings up his 50 with a shot to the boundary.

2:56pm

brandonia

Dropped on 6.

brandonia

Mullaney was dropped on 6 and now he's punished us by getting his half century.

49 overs in

Notts are 170-4 after 49 overs. Mullaney 48* and Taylor 47*. Partnership 72*.

2:51pm

brandonia

72 runs in 70 minutes since Lunch. Poor from Durham that. Let them off the hook.

brandonia

Hants 142-5

brandonia

Derby 116-1.

bryn

It got out canny now,the shorts are on!

marchy22

i hope someone drops a catch off stokes bowling, cost us nearly a hundred runs so far with his drops

brandonia

This is getting away from us now. Both batsmen getting to 50's.

brandonia

Nine fours for Mullaney. 45 from 55

auldtimer

To be fair to our bowlers they haven't bowled all that badly, the slightest push is racing away for 4 and we're still attacking.

Maiden

Breese bowls a maiden with the 46th over.

2:42pm

Update

Notts are 155-4 after 45 overs. Taylor 40* and Mullaney 41*. Partnership 57*.

2:40pm

Maiden

Stokes bowls a maiden with the 45th over.

2:39pm

Change in Bowling

Stokes replaces Onions in the attack.

2:37pm

safcluke

Bowl short at him, that's his downfall. Put a man on the boundry.

Mark

At least if there's a decent score when Read comes in he might get confused not having to do his usual rescue mission!

Stan Drop

I remember that Taylor played for MCC against us in Abu Dhabi. He's a little tich but he sure can give the ball a whack. better gettim out soon.

brandonia

45-0 in the last 10 overs. Awful since bait.

Stan Drop

Run rate is now over four.

Mark

Fair enough Stan

50 partnership

50 partnership between Taylor and Mullaney. Notts 148-4.

2:33pm

brandonia

50 partnership. Poor since Lunch. Although if Stokes hadn't rubbed Lurpak on his hands instead of the lunchtime scone they might be more down.

Stan Drop

Colly reckoned that the Root r/o was too close to call , so benefit of doubt. Who are we to disagree?.

Change in Bowling

Breese replaces Rushworth in the Durham attack.

2:33pm

Mark

I remember Gough umpiring against Surrey last year and he overturned decision after other ump had given him out! Surrey players weren't amused. Think Mustard was the batsman?

chrissafc

@luke - Umpires DJ Millns and SJ O'Shaughnessy

auldtimer

The batsmen will get good value for their shots here, the ball is racing over the outfield now.

chrissafc

they are as it's harmy's benefit match

safcluke

Did we not have Michael Gough umpiring us against Somerset? ( Ex Durham, Hartlepool lad)

brandonia

Aye but thats not proper cricket!

Mark

Match

Mark

Indeed! Although I have a feeling they are showing the 40over math on Sunday.

brandonia

Too cold for Sky up our way Mark.

Mark

Pity Sky didn't televise our match, if that run out had been given the game would have turned

brandonia

Might aswell let me and Marchy umpire Durham.

brandonia

ECB are a joke. Bloke from Yorkshire umpiring Yorkshire and now a bloke from Nottingham umpiring Nottinghamshire.

42 overs in

Notts are 146-4 after 42 overs. Taylor 38* and Mullany 34*. Partnership is 48*.

2:27pm

chrissafc

the umpire from Yorkshire wasn't having it though

chrissafc

someone who was sat down near the old scoreboard suggested it was a run out.

keenasmustard

We'll win this game, we'll win every game after than, and we'll win the county championship in style. I'm drunk as a lord by the way and I'm getting some funny looks from my boss.

brandonia

50 partnership imminent.

brandonia

Disappointing after Lunch.

Mark

Let's hope that error isn't too costly

auldtimer

Even the Notts supporters thought Rushworth had Mulaney last over

brandonia

I was more annoyed he didn't walk after gloving one to Colly.

Mark

Some of the umpiring is suspect. Was Root run out on Saturday afternoon? Couldn't tell from where I was sitting but the fielders seemed sure it was out.

safcluke

Who's Mullaney playing ahead of?

brandonia

Mullaney dealing in boundaries. 32 (7x4's)

Mark

Lol

brandonia

Colonel's just asked why it wasn't given and Garrett said it would've got under the stumps.......

brandonia

Back leg it hit too.

brandonia

Steve Garrett (from Nottingham) says NO.

Appeal!

Rushworth goes up looking for lbw against Mullaney but the umpire says not out.

2:18pm

christoff

Agreed Mark, was typing a similar post but did not send

brandonia

Appeal. Not out.

brandonia

Mullaney has moved onto 28 from neewhere hear.

marchy22

haway man take wickets

Mark

Stokes often goes for runs but takes wickets so as long as bowling at other end is tight we'll be ok...hopefully!

After 39 overs

Notts are 130-4 after 39 overs. Mullaney 24* and Taylor 32*. Partnership 32*.

2:15pm

auldtimer

Apart from stokes the lads have bowled quite tight, we still have an stacking field and anything through the ring goes for 4.

Maiden

Onions sends down a maiden in the 39th over.

2:14pm

Mark

We've dropped quite a few catches this season. Catching not been as good since Diva retired.

brandonia

The two drops have so far cost us 52 runs.

safcluke

Two drops today from Stokes, get him out the slips man!

brandonia

Mullaney putting us to the sword.

After 36 overs

Notts are 120-4 after 36 overs. Taylor 31* and Mullaney 15*. Partnership is 22*.

2:02pm

brandonia

Mullaney always does well against us. Rushy wayward.

Noz

Afternoon all. Let's see how many this drop costs us :-/

Haslam

We're doing well but we should have them about 80-5 if we held our catches! Anything over 300 a good score on here usually

marchy22

haway srtokes pull ur finger out

Dropped!

Stokes puts down Mullaney off the bowling of Onions on 6.

1:58pm

brandonia

Mullaney dropped.

brandonia

Stokes drops another.

brandonia

Nelson.

chrissafc

noticed durham have put an article up about tom latham on the website. due to sign for south shields. ex durham academy player, what were the reasons for him not staying on at durham?

Change in Bowling

Onions replaces Wood in the Durham attack.

1:55pm

33 overs bowled

Notts are 107-4 after 32 overs. Taylor 31* and Mullaney 2*. Partnership 9*.

1:51pm

chrissafc

fair enough. got to disagree but all about opinions.

Change in Bowling

Rushworth replaces Stokes in the attack.

1:43pm

Maiden

Wood sends down a maiden in the 31st over.

1:43pm

Bowling

Mark Wood will continue after Lunch.

1:42pm

New Batsman

Steven Mullaney is the new man at the crease.

1:41pm

christoff

kept his place to give him a run of matches instead of pancicing and dropping everyone who fails like most on here would do, then 48 from 2 knocks not enough of an improvement to merit further matches is how I see it

Bowling

Ben Stokes will finish his over after Lunch.

1:41pm

Afternoon Session

The players are making their way back onto the field after Lunch so play should be underway shortly.

1:40pm

chrissafc

hold your hands up if you're not doing your job but he had a good game vs Yorkshire.

chrissafc

hardly a confidence booster for the lad

chrissafc

keep your place for not scoring, dropped for scoring runs and taking a wicket. seems a bit daft

chrissafc

his bowling on Saturday was an encouraging bonus, surprised he only got 2 overs though

chrissafc

yes that is correct but they scored in the last game so to drop one of them after doing his job is a bit strange given they were kept in for what some will call "failing"

Stan Drop

I didn't get all the whinging about the Yorks match. Sure it was a pity to lose, but a good entertaining advert for the 4-day game. We recovered well after a bad start (again) and bowled well to get a good 1st inns lead, batted well in 2nd inns to set up a pretty good declaration (I thought), only to be undone by a brilliant knock from a rising England star. What is there to whinge about really?

christoff

so were you marchy??

christoff

I thought you were one of the people crying out for the top 3 to be axed and when it happens you act all surprised??

marchy22

agreed chris, cant see why jennings has been dropped

chrissafc

Gets a bit confidence back and they drop him.

chrissafc

he batted very well on Friday and contributed to a very important opening partnership. he bowled 2 overs and looked accurate and solid as well as taking a wicket. Very harsh to drop him

christoff

why is that chrissafc?

chrissafc

just read what auldtimer has said that Jennings is carrying the drinks. Unbelievable that mind

Griddle

*discussing

Griddle

Or are we discuss NUFCs recent home form in the PL? Pointless.

Griddle

The entire country Luke or just this match?

safcluke

Scotland. Dear me. Pointless.

chrissafc

2x T20 games & a 40 over game I believe, over 2 days

chrissafc

probably see the likes of brath/claydon playing for the 2nd XI this week against scotland

safcluke

SB is way down the pecking order it would seem.

Mark

At least the Lions haven't taken Stokes and Borthwick.

chrissafc

on the subject of mitch from earlier, he's signed for sunderland so will be getting plenty of cricket. can only see him been used in the pro40 t20 though for durham

safcluke

We should tank New Zealand at home regardless who plays.

safcluke

They are. Lions games should be for uncapped players imho.

chrissafc

onions will take 6 wickets..... then what.... another England series sitting doing nothing?

Mark

Agreed, those Lions games are a waste of time.

chrissafc

Onions selected for England Lions, what a complete waste of time for the lad

chrissafc

personally though the declaration was very risky. our lass said Yorkshire would chase it down. these things happen, we move on. I was more disappointed with the bowling selections on saturday

brandonia

I also agree Mark.

morzee

me too. only joe root super innings beat us in one of the few games he will play for the yorkies this year.

stuartp

Mark I think the declaration was driven by a poor weather forecast for the following morning session. It was showing rain up to lunch time, so they were probably balancing the chances of losing overs against everything else. Still took a special innings and a couple of pieces of luck for Root to set up the Yorks victory.

safcluke

Typical of the lions to pick Onions when we know what he can do, unless of injury, he wont play any tests this summer and he will always be picked as 12th man.

christoff

Surrey have no players selected

christoff

I agree too, Lons starts on 9th May so Onions misses Surrey game Root is captain

Haslam

I agree mark, though many do not!

Mark

Great start. I know that declaration against Yorks was controversial, personally I thought it was the right move. It took a magnificent innings to beat us.

Update

Stick around, we'll be back in 40 minutes for the afternoon session.

1:00pm

Lunch

It's Lunch at Trent Bridge and Durham have had an excellent morning taking four wickets after Notts elected to bat. Stokes and Onions have shared the wickets grabbing two apiece.

12:59pm

brandonia

I'd agree, our morning following that scalp.

christoff

Get in, excellent morning!!

keenasmustard

Did he fall on his backside again. Patel could be the new Norman Wisdom.

stuartp

Makes it our session I'd say

Wicket!

Stokes strikes again as Patel hits the ball straight to Borthwick for 17. Notts 98-4.

12:58pm

brandonia

Patel c Borthwick b Stokes 17. That's Lunch. 98-4.

Stevos

Good morning this

brandonia

Patel OUT!!

brandonia

Cheeky over from Borthwick before Lunch?!

keenasmustard

Surrey game starts 10 May. When does the Lions game start?

Mark

Forgot about Surrey! Very annoying selection in that case.

Griddle

I admit I had no idea we had a game starting today, still in shock at the declaration from Colly on Friday.

brandonia

Probably just about honours even this morning but we've bowled far too many four-balls.

brandonia

Yeah, Surrey away.

Mark

Forget that we don't have a game then do we?

Mark

Just what we needed Griddle!

christoff

If he can stick a 1 on the end they will be excellent figures

Griddle

Afternoon all - not a bad start, surprised with the dropping of young Jennings, who are we expecting to open?

England Lions

Graham Onions has been selected in the England Lions team to play New Zealand next week.

12:51pm

brandonia

Decent spell from Woody thus far. 6-4-9-0.

27 overs in

Notts are 87-3 after 27. Patel 12* and Taylor 22*. Partnership 13*.

12:50pm

christoff

I think Stoneman,Smith,Breese assuming Breese has scored runs in seconds, don't know wether he has or not?

Maiden

Wood sends down a maiden with the 27th over of the day.

12:49pm

brandonia

Has Breese got any previous for batting up the order?? Always considered him to be more middle to lower order??

Mark

Benks said it was to provide stability at the top with the big hitters like Stokes coming in later. Presumably it'll be a flexible order so will change if the openers put on a big stand. Colly or Breese to bat 3 in this match? Or maybe Breese will open.

brandonia

Marty hinted this morning that it could be Stoneman, Smith, Borthwick..... Although I'm not sure if that was merely his own opinion.

christoff

what about the 4 day game, who will be 3 today/tomorrow?

safcluke

Stokes at 5? Rocky and Mustard open? Where will Muchall fit in?

Mark

Other thing Benks mentioned in his diary was that he will bat 4 in the one day games with Colly at 3.

brandonia

Think Clayds is more a OD player. No idea on Brath, I've always personally wanted to see him get a go but then I'm unsure how hes being performing in the 2's.

keenasmustard

Harmy's benefit match at the weekend. Everyone taking loads of cash to stick in the buckets?

safcluke

Or will they use Mitch in the one day formats?

safcluke

How far down must Claydon and Brathwaite be now then?

brandonia

Overrated.

Mark

Harmison still out of contention with hamstring injury. Benks mentioed it in his N Echo diary. Even if he was fit he's probably behind Wood & Harrison in the pecking order.

keenasmustard

Will Patel slip over like last time? He's a YouTube star now is young Samit.

Stevos

He took 8 wickets in the last match.

Fours!

A couple of fours from Patel off the bowling of Wood. He moves to 9*.

12:40pm

brandonia

They should be Stevos, he's dross.

Stevos

Can't imagine our openers are looking forward to facing Broad.

brandonia

Wishful thinking Simo.

24 overs in

Notts are 74-3 after 24 overs. Patel 1* and Taylor 21*.

12:39pm

auldtimer

Jennings carrying the drinks here, he doesn't look injured. Richardson isn't pushing anyone for their place yet, he's hardly scored a run in the 2s.

stuartp

So how far down the order is Steve Harmison for a bowling spot in the team?

Bonus Point

Durham have secured their first bonus point of the game. Get in lads!!

12:37pm

New batsman

New man at the crease is Samit Patel.

12:36pm

christoff

Get in Stokes lad, and well done skipa for sticking with hime, a few on here had started sniping

keenasmustard

Get in there.

brandonia

1-0 to the Durham boys, 1-0 to the Wearsiders!!

Wicket!

Stokes sends down a nice delivery and traps the left-hander on the crease. Well done Ben.

12:36pm

brandonia

Steve Garrett (of Nottingham) gave that out........

safcluke

Wood 4 overs for 1 run.

brandonia

Lumb lbw b Stokes 9. 74-3.

Wicket!

Stokes strikes as he gets Lumb lbw for 9. Notts 74-3.

12:34pm

brandonia

Lumb out!!

Play and Miss!!

Taylor has a dart at a ball from Wood and misses. That was close to the outside edge.

12:33pm

keenasmustard

I reckon at this rate Richo will be at a different county next season.

brandonia

Wood unlucky here, Taylor played and missed a couple of times that over.

Haslam

We all want to see richo in and doing well, especially given the fallibility of the top order at times but its up to him to make himself too good to refuse by performing consistently well for the seconds

Stevos

What's Steve Harrison doing with himself these days?

safcluke

Richardson was named in the squad for the Yorkshire game yet he was down at Essex playing for the seconds.

christoff

It mentions in the team news article that the only change from the Yorks squad is the addition of Breese. No mention that Richardson has been left out of squad?

brandonia

Unless his disgust was more at himself.

brandonia

Just seen the wickets on SSN, Hales was absolutely plumb. No idea how he could be 'unimpressed' with the decision.

Edge!!!!

Taylor edges the ball through the slips to the boundary. That could have gone anywhere.

12:27pm

Stevos

Ben as economical as ever!!!!

21 overs bowled

Notts are 69-2 after 21 overs. Taylor 16* and Lumb 9*. Partnership 25*.

12:26pm

brandonia

68-2 (20 OVERS).

marchy22

get stokes off ffs

Fours!

Taylor notches three fours off the bowling of Stokes. He moves to 14*.

12:21pm

brandonia

Make that three fours from Stokes' bowling.

brandonia

Back to back fours from Taylor off Stokes.

Ouch

Mustard gets one right on the end of the fingers when trying to take the ball from a Wood delivery.

12:17pm

Haslam

I don't know stu but Edward woodwood would.

stuartp

How about Edwoodwoodwood?

After 18 overs

Notts are 53-2 after 18 overs. Lumb 8* and Taylor 2*. Partnership 9*.

12:13pm

brandonia

Ronnie Wood?? Reckon he could bat 6/7.

stuartp

John Wood or Mark Wood don't mind as long as it's not Jedwood

auldtimer

Good start from Wood, Taylor didn't look entirely comfortable.

christoff

Morning all, good start here against a very good looking Notts line up, be interesting to see what our batting line up will be

Change in Bowling

Ben Stokes replaces Breese in the attack.

12:10pm

brandonia

Breese out of the attack after 3 overs. Stokes on.

brandonia

Maiden from MW.

brandonia

Get yourself to the Trent Bridge Inn at lunch auldy, nice few pints.

auldtimer

Overcast and cold here, looks like the seamers are getting some swing so should suit Wood.

brandonia

Who's better...... John Wood or Mark Wood?! ;-)

chrissafc

same as last year please woody

Change in Bowling

Mark Wood replaces Graham Onions in the attack.

12:06pm

brandonia

Wood on to bowl instead of Onions.

safcluke

Canny test for them.

safcluke

I'll be interested to see how we get on against their bowlers.

chrissafc

good start for us

chrissafc

:)

15 overs bowled

Notts are 47-2 after 15. Lumb 4* and Taylor 1*. Partnership 3*.

12:03pm

brandonia

I think Durham will be the happier up to now, bearing in mind Notts won the toss. 3 or 4 down at Lunch would be a very good mornings work from our lads.

daleslass

Chrissafc women don't have to win debates. We're always right !

brandonia

You're lucky chris, Steph seems to like the cricket as much as you do! Mind I did have our lass watching 'From the Ashes' last night, but I think she fancied the young Botham.......

safcluke

Might wanna head down soon Brandon, will be over by tea tomorrow. (I joke)

Haslam

Put in to field i think a good performance is 2 down by lunch, 5 down by tea and all out by close. Depends on wicket of course but a good start with both openers gone not even 50 on the board

chrissafc

never let a woman win a debate. put your foot down and go to the cricket :) (hoping stephsafc isn't reading this)

brandonia

Breese still bowling. Strange one.

Wicket Maiden!

Onions sends down a wicket maiden in the 13th over. He got nine wickets last year are we seeing an encore.

11:56am

brandonia

I'm working on persuading our lass to let me come down at some point over the four days but so far she's winning the debate.

RE: Brandonia

Good to hear.

11:53am

New batsman

The new man at the crease is James Taylor.

11:52am

Update

Smith takes the catch at gully to end Cowan's innings. He made 36 more runs after being dropped by Stokes on four.

11:52am

auldtimer

Great catch by smith, right off the end of his nose.

safcluke

Taylor in next? Get it short to him...

brandonia

I'm here all week Simo.

RE: Brandonia

You stole my thunder, brandon.

11:50am

brandonia

Cowan c Smith b Onions 40. The earlier drop cost 36! Lets get through them now!

Wicket!

Cowan goes for 40 caught by Smith at gully off the bowling of Onions. Notts 44-2.

11:50am

safcluke

Big wicket.

parky

get in

brandonia

Cowan out!!!!

safcluke

Quick start.

12 overs in

Notts are 44-1 after 12. Cowan 40* and Lumb 2* Partnership 11*.

11:49am

chrissafc

can't get my head around a lot of things at the moment with durham. very baffling

safcluke

When did breese last play a lvcc game? 2009?

brandonia

EH?! Spinner on after 11 overs?! Unless its just to swap Onions' end.

safcluke

Haway gareth.

chrissafc

looked like medium pace on saturday luke. certainly wasn't spin

Change in Bowling

Gareth Breese replaces Chris Rushworth in the attack.

11:46am

safcluke

Is Jennings a spinner??

chrissafc

likewise jennings. 2 overs for 5 runs and 1 wicket. took him off and let smith get clattered all over

brandonia

I agree with you chris, I was just giving you what I think is the reason behind his exclusion.

chrissafc

Thorp impressed me with his bowling on Saturday. It was neat and tidy which is what we needed ahead of the new ball. sadly he was massively under used

chrissafc

borthwick never on saturday yet colly persisted with him. stokes went for 99 runs (yes i know he got 2 wickets) but he got battered

brandonia

I think the feeling with Thorp is that he doesn't carry as much of a wicket taking threat anymore. Although only one rest day may have caught up with him and that might be the reasoning behind his exclusion.

safcluke

Although we know he doesn't play much 4 day cricket.

safcluke

Breese is a change mind, good idea aswell. Solid bowler, good slip catcher and good with the bat.

chrissafc

he was one of only a couple who bowled accurate on saturday

bryn

Jason isaacs is the double of kp mind!

chrissafc

dear me just noticed thorp dropped as well. economic bowler and scores runs with the bat.

safcluke

Key to get Lumb out, full straight early on

chrissafc

team news was only put on the website this morning yet the opening paragraph says "after yesterdays loss"

daleslass

That's more like it.

New batsman

The new man at the crease for Notts is Michael Lumb.

11:37am

Wicket!

Onions strikes with the last ball with his over. Hales doesn't look too happy with the decision.

11:36am

Haslam

Boom. Cowan wont be there at lunch but how much damage before then ..

brandonia

Cowan is on 31 from 32 balls. Nailed on for a 50.

Wicket!

Onions strikes and removes Hales lbw for 2. Notts 33-1.

11:35am

brandonia

Hales lbw Onions 2. Ha'way Durham!!

safcluke

Please say we've got Cowan.

brandonia

33-1

Haslam

Does seem odd to drop him after that given they stood by him after never getting to the second ball of the day (as they should!)

chrissafc

he looked fine on saturday. fair enough if it's injury related but given we never get any information on the website, we can only assume and guess

Haslam

They really do have a cracking lineup. What's our next match? Just kidding, lets roll them for under 300 lads.

RE: chrissafc

Might be injury related not sure.

11:33am

chrissafc

so a lad who hit 49 in a very useful opening partnership, bowled well in his 2 overs and took a wicket justifies getting dropped? ridiculous

bryn

loves a 'cheeky surprise'

marchy22

this is gonna be a painful match

chrissafc

jennings dropped?

Update

Cowan has 26* off 26 balls so far. Durham need to get him out, come on lads!

11:28am

safcluke

Cowan flying.

Fours!

A couple of fours and Cowan moves to 25 with a couple of great shots down the ground off Onions.

11:26am

brandonia

26-0. Cowan 25.

brandonia

22-0. Cowan is flying.

6 overs in

Notts are 18-0 after 6. Cowan 17* and Hales 1*.

11:23am

RE: Brandonia

Morning.

11:22am

brandonia

Simo, morning fella!

keenasmustard

It does seem an odd side, dropping a batsman and playing an extra bowler. We need as much time in the middle as possible.

Re: keenasmustard

I don't I'm afraid mate.

11:20am

keenasmustard

Simon do you know if Jennings is injured?

Update

It's still Simon at the minute.

11:19am

brandonia

Jetlag.

Frankjw

All we need now is for Benks to drop Hales!!

Update

Couple of fours from Cowan early on as he moves to 17* off just 19 balls.

11:18am

safcluke

Cowan is a good player, shame we put him down.

Frankjw

Thanks for update

Chance

One chance so far for Durham, as Stokes put down Cowan third slip of the bowling of Onions.

11:12am

Team News-Notts

Notts XI: Cowan, Hales, Lumb, Taylor, Patel, Read, Mullaney, Broad, Swann, Shazad, Fletcher
