CollingwoodFTM

Well batted lads. A great day.

safcluke

Well done lads, cya tomorrow.

RE: Safcluke

Martin will speak I think. A report will be on the website tomorrow though.

6:10pm

safcluke

Interview with him tonight Simon? Or will Marty be doing it?

Durham

An excellent day for Durham and especially Will Smith who scored a brilliant hundred against his former county. Hopefully the lads can push on tomorrow and rack up a high total to put Notts under pressure.

6:09pm

brandonia

Wonderful effort from Smith, it's no secret I've been quite critical of him in recent weeks but he deserves a lot of credit today so WELL DONE SMUDGE!! One knock doesn't make a season though so I'm hoping he can carry this form on for much much longer. Tomorrow I'd like to see us bat on until Lunch atleast - building a lead hopefully in excess of 50.

Close of Play

Durham close day two on 297-6 after 106 overs. Smith 119* and Mustard 15*. Current Partnership is 34 and they trail by just 23 runs.

manurule175

Yea, would rather have the lead, 65 of 48 ?

Change in Bowling

Mullany replaces Shahzad in the attack.

5:56pm

brandonia

I'll settle for the 3 batting points Manu!

Four

Reverse sweep from Mustard off the bowling of Swann and it goes all the way to the fence.

5:53pm

brandonia

Lovely reverse paddle from the Colonel!

manurule175

Will they go for the 69 in 9 overs for extra bp?

101 overs bowled

Durham are 281-6 after 101, Smith 108* and Mustard 10*. We trail by 39*.

5:51pm

raydetmold

raydetmold

5:40pm

5:32pm

Seconds

The Seconds have been bowled out for 154 chasing 245 in their clash with Scotland.

5:31pm

tomb

Does Smith do a dart?

brandonia

By dart I mean a quick 40 from 10 overs!

brandonia

I wonder, with a couple of aggressive lads to come. Whether its worth having a bit of a dart....?!

tomb

Breeze and Wood also can bat, in theory we could add a fair few more here. lots of all rounders in the Durham side.

New batsman

The new man at the crease is Phil Mustard.

5:21pm

tomb

Should have kept me mouth shut about Broad. Lost track is it mustard or breeze now?

Wicket!

Colly goes for 64 caught behind by Read off the bowling of Broad. Durham 263-6.

5:19pm

stuartp

8UM

brandonia

Colly gone.

tomb

When Smith was out 2nd innings against Yorkshire a bloke near me seriously demanded a recall for Muchall at 3. Leave him for the 40 over stuff.

tomb

Most of our batsman are capable on proper surfaces. Batting at the Riverside can be tough even for the very best, especially against the new ball. Wouldnt be suprised if he follows up with low scores in the home games, thats the nature of it.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Edit that should be 37 at 2.13

Stan Drop

17 overs to get 37 runs for that extra batting point.2 and a bit p/o. Over 5 p/o for the next one.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Would be nice to get a lead tonight. 57 needed off 17.2 overs at 3.28 to get another bonus point.

raydetmold

credit where its due , well batted Will , lets hope this can be the start of some big consistent scores

92 overs in

Durham are 263-5 after 92 overs. Colly 64* and Smith 101*. Partnership is 115* and Durham trail by 57.

5:11pm

Mark

Brilliant, well done Will.

christoff

Well done smithy lad keep it going

100 for Smith!!!!!!

Will Smith brings his century with a three. Well played Will. That's come off 270 balls and has included 13 boundaries.

5:09pm

Stan Drop

Gerrin that lad. Fine knock! Now keep up the concentration and keep going for a big 'un!

stuartp

Now make it a chesney...

brandonia

WELL BATTED SMUDGE!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Well done Smithy.

Update

Sorry as Standrop says Colly is on 64*. Getting ahead of myself.

5:07pm

RE: raydetmold

15 I think.

5:06pm

brandonia

14 after this one.

raydetmold

How many overs left today please ?

Stan Drop

64 surely?

Four!

Another four to Colly as he powers a shot of Shahzad to the fence. He moves to 68*.

5:04pm

tomb

Thought Broad would have ripped through us being a world class bowler (sarcasm)

brandonia

Shot Colly.

Stan Drop

Forecast looks good. Should get the full four days in!

Appeal

Shahzad goes up looking for lbw against Colly, but it's not out.

5:03pm

tomb

Excellent effort up to now, dont kknow what the forecast is for the next few days, batting last, would still take a high point draw.

Change in Bowling

Shahzad replaces Fletcher at the Radcliffe Road End.

5:02pm

brandonia

Well played Peter Willey :-)

Seconds

The seconds are 116-7 after 27 overs chasing 245 against Scotland.

5:02pm

mac6

2nds update pringle goes lbw for 28 115/ 7 off 27 127 to win off 137

stuartp

Staying quiet here, don't want to curse it.

Four to Smith!!

Smith gets another boundary off the bowling of Broad. He moves to 98*, come on Will!!!

5:00pm

christoff

Might stop them getting full bowling points

raydetmold

Spot on Mark , anothr 2 full days , loads of time

brandonia

Smith up to 98*.

Griddle

We've lost fewer wickets so far of course......

Tynevalleyblackcat

Smith on 98. Come on.

Tynevalleyblackcat

I agree Brandonia, the match position is more important, so just bat sensibly and hopefully secure a decent first innings lead.

brandonia

That was kind of the observation I was making Stan!

Mark

Just need to keep batting and not worry too much about the bonus points

Stan Drop

Yes, but for 70 fewer runs Brando!

brandonia

I'd settle for 3 batting points aslong as we have a lead.

brandonia

We've batted for longer than Notts did anyway.

Stan Drop

All singing the samew song. Touching really!

chrissafc

110 overs

Stan Drop

No, 110. run rate just below 3 so should be able to get to 300, but 350 would be a helluva chase.

Tynevalleyblackcat

No its 110 now.

89 overs in

Durham are 252-5 after 89. Smith 94 and Colly 60*. Durham trail by 68.

4:56pm

Griddle

my mistake

Griddle

I thought it was first 120 overs?

keenasmustard

2nd batting point.

250 up

Another Colly boundary as he pulls Fletcher to the fence. It brings up the 250 for Durham. Get in!!!

4:55pm

Stan Drop

Way to go lads!

brandonia

Just what the doctor ordered by these two. Dig in lads. See it through until Stumps!!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Need 98 off 21 overs, at 4.67 per over. Possible but that's a far better run rate than we have seen thus far.

brandonia

250 up!

100 Partnership

Colly hits a four to the boundary off the bowling of Fletcher and brings up the 100 partnership between him and Smith. Well played lads!!!!

4:54pm

raydetmold

100 partnership , magnificent

Griddle

outside chance of getting the 4th bp surely?

chrissafc

Durham 243/5 (88.1 ov)

Tynevalleyblackcat

The 4th and 5th batting bonus points look beyond us due to the run rate. We will hopefully get the 2nd and 3rd though.

Griddle

That's twice Colly has come into a grim situation and turned it round with a positive partnership.

marchy22

great effort lads, keep it going

keenasmustard

Samit Patel will be crying in his cheeseburgers tonight.

Two more for Smith

Smith gets a couple and moves to 94*. Come on Will!

4:47pm

mac6

2nds update Harrison goes stumped for 1 104/6 off 23.3

brandonia

Well batted Colly, now for Smudge's ton!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

That's more than half of that 160 deficit I mentioned earlier knocked off by these two. Good stuff.

chrissafc

it's a fantastic effort Ray as the game was looking dodgy for us when colly was brought in

mac6

2nds update arshad goes ct for 7 104/5 off 23 pringle 26 not out

keenasmustard

Well done Colly. He's got some much needed time in the middle too.

raydetmold

91 partnership so far , superb effort

50 for Colly

Collingwood brings up his 50 in 119 balls as he hits a ball from Broad to the boundary.

4:43pm

tomb

Also batting at 3 is maybe the hardest batting position, batting at one of the most bowler friendly wickets around 1st innings at DCCC doesnt help a players confidence. He also got a 100 against Durham Uni, first class game

85 overs bowled

Durham are 235-5 after 85. Smith 92* and Colly 46*. Trail by 85.

4:42pm

chrissafc

50 for colly

tomb

He generally does score runs in away games, just seeing him live at home he never does it.

Re: keenasmustard

Heard something earlier saying Smith hs at Trent Bridge including time at Notts was 87.

4:40pm

chrissafc

Got to give Smith a lot of credit here.

keenasmustard

Marty Emmerson says this is Smudge's highest score @ Trent Bridge. Does that also mean when he was a Notts player as well?

Griddle

so this man walks into a bar..........

manurule175

4th game of season

Four!

Smith cracks another boundary as he dispatches a delivery from Broad to the fence. He moves 92*. Come on Will.

4:37pm

Re: keenasmustard

I like it.

4:36pm

raydetmold

manurule175 So happy for smith, proving most of the people on here wrong. Too quick to judge. TOO QUICK TO JUDGE ?

brandonia

True. One swallow doesn't make a summer. Good on Smudge here though. Hopefully he scores 1000 runs this season.

keenasmustard

Ok here's a joke - my 13 yo son has started looking up women's skirts. My firend sai that it was natural for 13 yo boys to do this. I told him he was on ebay at the time.

keenasmustard

*Have

keenasmustard

I'm a critic of Smith and I'm afraid he needs more than just one good innings to prove us all wrong. Heve enough innings, you're bound to get it right once in a while.

Update

New rule if you're going to make jokes they have to be good.

4:32pm

Griddle

I'm a big critic of Mr Smith too, but to be fair he was excellent in Ali.

Appeal

Fletcher and the slips are looking for lbw against Colly, but the umpire says not out.

4:30pm

chrissafc

11th august

Maiden

Broad sends down a maiden in the 82nd over.

4:29pm

raydetmold

Good afternoon everybody , over the moon that Will Smith has finally put a score together , im his biggest critic by a mile , he hasnt produced anything for months and months , gets a decent score and all of a sudden hes proved everybody wrong ? , you couldnt make it up

mac6

2nds update pearce goes lbw for 4 88/4 off 17.3

safcluke

Funny how we always get Scotland as the "minnows" and not either the Netherlands or the Unicorns.

Bowling

Stuart Broad will share the new ball with Fletcher.

4:25pm

81 overs bowled

Durham are 228-5 after 81 overs. Smith 88* and Colly 43*. Partnership is 80*. Durham trail by 92.

4:24pm

safcluke

Whats the date of that Chris?

Appeal

Fletcher and the slips are up looking for lbw against Smith but it's not out. Inside edge onto his pad.

4:22pm

chrissafc

scotland away game in glasgow in august. bang goes that plan

Change in Bowling

Fletcher returns from the Radcliffe Road End.

4:21pm

keenasmustard

The Rudolph rumour seems to have been just that - a rumour.

New Ball

Notts have taken the new ball.

4:20pm

marchy22

i think he would have been signed by now if we were gonna get him

keenasmustard

Still seems odd though that Smith was sacked as captain.

safcluke

I think everyone would agree that Smith is a number 3. Any more strength in the Rudolph rumour?

marchy22

smith is quite aggressive on cricket captain lol

manurule175

So happy for smith, proving most of the people on here wrong. Too quick to judge.

mac6

Rammy Singh 3rd wicket to go for 28

Four!

Smith crashes a shot to the boundary off the bowling of Mullaney. He moves to 86*.

4:14pm

safcluke

He's naturally a slow scoring player anyhow.

safcluke

Not at all Marchy, just sharing my opinion.....

brandonia

Shot Smudge!!! Deficit down to double figures.

marchy22

would you rather he was out luke, come on be positive

safcluke

Why are they playing a 50 and 40 over game? Seems abit daft.

Seconds

The seconds are 78-3 after 14 overs in their clash with Scotland. They need 187 to win.

4:13pm

safcluke

Just a bit part player at Notts isnt he?

bryn

<3 the new look marchster

brandonia

Don't like the look of that Mullaney. His eyes are too close together.

safcluke

Probably take Smith about 90 minutes to score these 18 the rate he's going at.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Deficit down to 100.

After 77 overs

Durham are 220-5 after 78 overs. Smith 82* and Colly 41*. Partnership 72*. They now trail by 100.

4:11pm

marchy22

just thought id keep yous happy by being positive

brandonia

SHOT SMUDGE!!

Bowling

Mullaney continues after Tea.

4:06pm

safcluke

Marchy has turned positive :O

brandonia

Marchy's found your stash I think Keenas!

Maiden

The first over after Tea is a maiden from Patel.

4:04pm

keenasmustard

Who are you? And what have you done with the real marchy?

Afternoon session

The players are out for the afternoon session. Patel will open up things after Tea.

4:04pm

marchy22

we will take a lead without losing another wicket

brandonia

Not me keenas. Just one wicket away from a collapse.

safcluke

We've done really well to keep Swann quiet.

safcluke

Hopefully.

keenasmustard

Anyone think we might get a 1st innings lead?

stuartp

7 players all made it into double figures so far. Good start and still a couple of decent batsmen to come.

keenasmustard

Not worried about the run rate. Plenty of time left.

brandonia

Definitely our session that one. Another session up next like that and we're back in command!

Stan Drop

Yes, not a bad session, save for losing Stokes so cheaply. Run rate (2.82 0verall) a bit of a concern too with only six overs to the new ball, and 36 to get to 400;-).

safcluke

Muchall and Richardson hardly staking a claim are they?

mac6

Richardson goes lbw for 6 45/2 after 7.3

Stan Drop

Nelson, kinda sorta.

keenasmustard

Much better session for us.

Tea

Durham are 209-5 at Tea after 74 overs. Smith 73* and Colly 39*. Partnership is 61*. Durham trail by 111.

3:43pm

mac6

2nds update muchall out lbw 17 38/1 off 6.4

Four!

Colly hits the last ball before Tea to the boundary on the leg side. He moves to 39*.

3:42pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good session for us that.

safcluke

How many overs left today?

keenasmustard

Oh and lemsip as well

stuartp

Nah far stronger keenas and I are sharing all the positive energy that has been sucked out of marchy

keenasmustard

Uppers, downers, mushrooms, coke, crack, herion, ecstacy, meow meow, GBH and lager.

One over till Tea

One over left till Tea which will be bowled by Mullaney.

3:39pm

Stan Drop

What are you on keenas?

keenasmustard

Let's press on now. We could still win this. Boy those drugs are good.

50 partnership

Smith and Colly bring up their 50 partnership as well. Smith 72* and Colly 34*. Durham 203-5.

3:36pm

safcluke

Griddle - He was used as a bit part one day player, went away over the winter and obviously came back into the Derby 4 day team.

Stan Drop

Fifty p'ship. Press on lads!

keenasmustard

First batting point.

200 up

Durham bring up their 200 with a two to fine leg. Securing our first batting bonus point.

3:35pm

Four!

Smith hits another boundary as he dispatches the ball to the boundary off Patel. He moves to 72*.

3:32pm

Seconds

The seconds are currently 22-0 after 4 overs chasing 245.

3:31pm

Griddle

Will this Chesney be a one hit wonder like his namesake?

keenasmustard

Five runs short of Derbyshire's all time batting record.

RE: stuartp

Since he's been mentioned I've been waiting for someone to make that joke. Well done!

3:30pm

stuartp

Indeed he is indeed "the one and only"

Change in Bowling

Mullany replaces Swann in the Notts attack.

3:27pm

safcluke

Chesney Hughes carried his bat. 270 not out for Derby. Great effort that.

Four!

Colly hits Patel down the ground and doesn't quite get the contact he would like, but the ball goes to the boundary.

3:25pm

Griddle

Is that a batting bonus point I see before me?

marchy22

they are doing well, no rush

safcluke

Hope these two can push up towards 100 & 50.

After 67 overs

Durham are 185-5 after 67 overs. Smith 67* and Colly 22*. Partnership 38*. Trail by 134.

3:19pm

Stan Drop

I'm all in favour of a bit of consolidation and taking a long view, but do we really have to crawl along at 1.6 p/o?

keenasmustard

It's gone quiet on here.

Updates

Smith has moved to 65* with Collingwood 13*. Durham 178-5. Our Seconds are chasing 245 for victory at Chester-le-Street.

3:04pm

tomb

Great,shame we have to bat last on it. Good that the BBC is covering plenty of county cricket on the radio again.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Follow on avoided

tomb

You might see her on Sunday as she is involved

keenasmustard

I miss Yvette.

tomb

Yvette is organising it.

tomb

Is that the bloke who used to play cricket in days of yore?

safcluke

He hasn't played 40 over cricket since August 2010. Notably a Sky game at Hampshire.

keenasmustard

By coincidence it's his benefit game.

safcluke

Harmy limbering up for the YB 40 game v ESSEX on Sunday?

bryn

Aftas all,thats me another day closer to retirement

tomb

Can anyone confirm if pixie Lott was at Fram/Pity me social club on Friday?

keenasmustard

This is the Durham version of TMS. We talk about all sorts during play. Like pigeons and double decker buses.

tomb

Normally in Will Smiths recent scores, its, William it was really nothing. (Sorry)

tomb

Both as bad as each other, lets hope Durham can cheer us up this week.

chrissafc

some of the durham players were at the sunderland match last night

tomb

Surely allowed if relevant to Durham players lapping it up? Fair enough.

Griddle

let's not talk football please, other than to say PDC didn't need new trousers after last night's game.........

tomb

In Jennings case regarding his spot, you just havent earned it yet baby....

tomb

As the newcastle score was coming through on Saturday it was certainly cheering up Colly and Martin Emmerson in Austins.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Surely the most apt Smiths song re our batsmen's innings is 'I started something I couldn't finish'??

mac6

2nds update Burnett b harmison 22 Scotland end innings on 244/9 harmy finishes with 8 overs 3/41

brandonia

Good post that tomb - regarding the Smiths! Please please please, let me get maximum batting points.

tomb

Behind the hatred there lies, a murderous desire for....durham wins

tomb

What does snyone think about 'canteengate'this season.

brandonia

Marchy is definitely the Boy with a Thorn in his Side!!

tomb

Fair play to Smith but he tends to get a few knocks in away games, just does nowt in the home games

tomb

Or that joke isnt funny anymore in the case of our top order

chrissafc

fair play mac for the 2ndxi updates

auldtimer

Or in Durham's case, 'You have to fight for your right to Parity' the Beastie Boys.

keenasmustard

Watching us bat is like the Smiths - Heaven Knows Im Miserable Now

auldtimer

How about Elvis, Lets have a Parity?

mac6

Farrar lbw harmison 4 227/8 off 48

keenasmustard

Halfway to parity? Wasn't that a Billy Fury song?

Griddle

160/5, halfway to parity with half our wickets intact.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Halfway to Notts total with 5 down. We really could do with these two putting a big hole in the other half.

auldtimer

Looked a lazy shot that got stokes out.

mac6

2nds update iqbal ct pringle b claydon 70 217/7 off 46.2

marchy22

me too chris

keenasmustard

Shame Chesney Hughes wasn't playing for us.

marchy22

we will do well to get close to their score now

chrissafc

dissapointed with stokes mind

Griddle

Yes, Luke, I had him replaced by Richardson in my line-up......

safcluke

Smith proving quite a few of us wrong.

Griddle

Need Smith to just drop anchor and try and stay out there, otherwise can see us conceding a 100 run 1st innings deficit here.

christoff

Thats a blow, come on Colly!! Keep going Smithy!!

Griddle

Chesney doing his batting average the world of good. Stokes gorn to Broad. Nichts gut.

WICKET

Stokes goes for 11 after he hits it back to Broad. 148-5. Next man in is the skipper Collingwood.

2:02pm

brandonia

Well batted Smudge!! Now dig in and double it!

christoff

Well done Smithy lad!!!! and welcome back Simon

safcluke

Chesney Hughes - 250 not out. Some effort that.

Smith reaches half century

That's 50 for Smith. His half century Came off 130 balls with 6 boundaries. Durham 147-4.

2:00pm

auldtimer

Pitch looks flat now and Swann not getting much if any turn, he's getting a bit stick from one two Notts supporters.

mac6

2nds update leask ct off the bowling of claydon 58 177/5 off 41

brandonia

@auldtimer - Is Swann getting much turn mate? Already bowled 9 overs. Pitch doing nowt for the quicks or what??

brandonia

Broad is bowling after Lunch. Stokes underway with a four.

brandonia

I've nipped out too mate!! Someone else will have to do it. However I'm assuming the players are now back out.....

Griddle

Next passage of play pretty crucial, if they take any more wickets you'd have to say 1st innings lead would be unlikely.

christoff

Brando I put you in charge for the next 2 hours keep them updates coming

mac6

2nds update mommsen ct Richardson b bousfield 3 pringle replaced brath 89/4 off 29

Lunch

That's lunch at Trent Bridge. Durham are 130-4 with Smith 43* and Stokes 1*. They trail by 190.

1:02pm

brandonia

Nottinghamshire's session. Just.

christoff

darn, still confident of a first inns lead which would be good going, match still pretty even

One over till Lunch

One over to go till Lunch which will be bowled by Mullaney.

12:59pm

keenasmustard

Everyone get ready to panic when the afternoon session begins.

brandonia

Oh crumbs....

CollingwoodFTM

Oh Christoff, keep your mouth shut. ;-)

New batsman

Ben Stokes is the new man at the crease for Durham.

12:55pm

brandonia

You could say the same about Turner.

Wicket!

Benkenstein goes lbw to Mullaney for 27. Durham 124-4. The trail by 196.

12:55pm

keenasmustard

Can't understand why we let Ben Raine go. Looked a good prospect.

christoff

Stoneman, Smith and Benks finding some four here, top four lookin fixed!

brandonia

Under 200 deficit now.

Four!

Benks finds the boundary again, as he crashes a ball from Swann to the fence. He moves to 27*.

12:50pm

chrissafc

aye the journal said ben raine was spending the first month playing for surrey. he's signed for Newcastle along with de toit (ex Leicester)

auldtimer

The outfield is getting faster and faster as it warms up here.

brandonia

Oh aye christoff. Owa the knot. In other news - Ben Raine and Karl Turner are trailing for Surrey 2nds today against Sussex.

Change in Bowling

Steven Mullaney replaces Fletcher at the Radcliffe Road End.

12:46pm

chrissafc

chrissafc

he needs to dig in and get more runs.

archietino

Not many comments today about smithy I note

12:30pm

auldtimer

I don't think Jennings was dropped because of performances, I think it was more of a tactical change to get a spinner into side to replace Scotty's bowling.

Tristan

time for work, keep the runs flowing please!

Four!

Benkenstein gets off the mark with a boundary off Fletcher.

12:28pm

Tristan

yesterdays left over chinese was my lunch

brandonia

Fire alarm!!!

brandonia

What about everyone else?? Not sure what I'm going to have but I'm open to suggestions!!

Tristan

really surprising that our move to try and sure up the batting was dropp jennings and bring in wood

brandonia

Shot Benk!

RE: Brandonia

Don't know.

12:27pm

brandonia

What's on the Lunch menu for today then Simo??

chrissafc

1 wicket, 2 overs for 5 runs on saturday

Tristan

about jennings sure is harsh, even took a wicket or two so far hasnt he? his 48 is one of our highest scores so far...

Four!

Smith crashes a full toss from Swann to the boundary. He moves to 31*.

12:25pm

keenasmustard

That's harsh then. Not as if he was the only batsman out of form.

Haslam

One or two batsmen need to go on with their scores. Benks, stokes and colly is a strong middle now the ball is older and the conditions are nice but at least one century or a couple of 50's required

chrissafc

dropped, he was doing the drinks yesterday

keenasmustard

Did we find out if Jennings is injured or has he just been dropped?

brandonia

Need these two to see us through til Lunch atleast.

Tristan

need a decent partnership to cement our place in this game...

New batsman

The new man at the crease is Dale Benkenstein.

12:21pm

Tristan

fow has been nearly indectical between us so far. may work in our favour as we are batting deep due to nigh***chmen...

keenasmustard

Dammit!

Wicket!

12:07pm

brandonia

Appeal for LBW against Smudge - NOT OUT. Behave yourself Broad.

brandonia

76-2, partnership of 30. Be great if these two can last another hour until Lunch. Just quietly rebuilding here.

brandonia

SHOT SCOTTY!!!

brandonia

Aye and we won't give you about 700 repeats throughout the day!

11:56am

brandonia

SHOT SCOTTY!!!!

christoff

deffo brando, ball deteriating, bowlers tireing, the runs will start to flow soon enough

brandonia

I'd settle for 120-2 at Lunch in fairness, no real rush.

chrissafc

just got to keep ticking away nicely here.

brandonia

Deffo chris.

chrissafc

christoff

Agreed, that his style slow and steady

brandonia

SHOT SMUDGE!!!!

brandonia

Of course I'd rather he makes 20 from 100 than 0.

brandonia

I know, only thing is if he lasts 100 balls for 20, he could've had 50!

christoff

no rush brandonia

brandonia

Slightly worried about Smith's slow strike rate.

mac6

Quick head count 35 at most 16/1 after 6.1

brandonia

Cook on for carrying his bat at Chelmsford.

brandonia

Aye, I've never been a fan of night-watchmen Stan. Ever.

Stan Drop

Luke Fletcher will share the ball this morning.

marchy22

century from rushy

safcluke

Morning folks, haway lads.

keenasmustard

The sun is shining, the birds are singing, and I've just been acquitted of all charges. It's a great day today.

daleslass

Morning all

auldtimer

Lovely day here to score 400. Must conserve battery today as it went dead just as we started our innings yesterday. If Rushy can frustrate the bowlers for ten overs that's a bonus.

brandonia

The commentator says Hales will feel unlucky - he obviously didn't see the footage from Sky, he was plumb.

brandonia

Morning folks. Highlights of Day 1 here - http://www.ecbtv.co.uk/video/20130429/nottinghamshire-v-durham-day-1-taylor-stakes-his-claim_2276246_3161685
