raydetmold

Afternoon everybody , superb effort again today , really fancy us to win this one

auldtimer

I can't see us taking wickets at the moment, it's a case of hoping they give us wickets for now.

brandonia

I think we'll be struggling to get one wicket this session, nevermind 3.

Stan Drop

Three wickets this session, before they get even and we're in with a sniff of a win tomorrow.

auldtimer

It's all looking a bit slow paced for the bowlers now, maybe time to give Breese a go.

christoff

Just a shame marchy is missing all the fun!

Change in Bowling

Mullaney replaces Broad in the attack.

2:14pm

Update

Breese isn't happy with that decision. He played a good innings though and scored 44 valuable runs.

2:12pm

brandonia

Questionable decision from the Nottingham based umpire.......

New Batsman

New man at the crease is Graham Onions.

2:12pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Lets try and eek out another 19 and get a 100 lead.

Griddle

Shame Breese is gone, but this must be demoralising for Notts, can we scramble a 100+ lead?

Wicket!

Breese goes for 44 lbw to Broad. Durham 401-9.

2:11pm

chrissafc

401/9

chrissafc

cric info has gareth breese out

chrissafc

can't beat the county stuff though. love it

safcluke

International cricket is 50 0vers, so naturally the ECB would want up coming cricketers playing 40 overs.

tomb

Superb batting,so much for us not passing 280 all season as some predicted.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Keep going lads. All valuable runs now.

tomb

I love the County Stuff, the other formats dont interest me so much.

400 up

With that boundary Breese brings up Durham's 400. Well played lads!!! Durham 400-8.

2:07pm

Four!

Breese gets another boundary and moves to 43*.

2:07pm

brandonia

400 up!!

chrissafc

I just like a sunday of cricket. would prefer 50 overs mind

tomb

If you want to see singles nurdled around for the middle 20 overs, followed by some late slogs caught in the deep, PRO 40 fits the bill.

Six!

Bigger hit from Wood this time as he clatters Patel over the rope for a huge six!

2:03pm

brandonia

Six to Woody!!

stuartp

So all 10 batsmen so far into double figures.

Four!

Lovely shot by Wood as he clatters another Patel delivery to the boundary. He moves to 10*.

2:02pm

tomb

Real shame they got rid of the cup soon as we won it as well. Remember watching Breeze hit the winning runs in the QF knockout v Notts. Great celebrations.

safcluke

Even worse for Scotland who wont be loaded.

brandonia

Another four to Woody. Seems like the lads are trying to press on a bit after lunch.

safcluke

Then back to EDICG and then two days later Kent away.

safcluke

It's too long winded. Long trips down to Hampshire when you cant qualify. Pointless

safcluke

No seedings, nee crap. Straight out of a hat.

safcluke

Agreed Tomb.

tomb

Pro 40 is boring, as is the whole Harmison benefit thing. Bring back the old 50 over cup knockout.

safcluke

Bob Willis wont mention it.

chrissafc

leave that for sky to go on about.

safcluke

No mention of Harmys big day. http://durhamccc.co.uk/news/yorkshire-bank-game-1/

chrissafc

4 news articles on the website in the space of around 12 hours. good work :)

chrissafc

Good stuff this

142 overs

Durham are 384-8 after 142 overs. Breese 37* and Wood 6*. Durham lead by 64.

1:56pm

1:55pm

Off the mark

Wood is off the mark with a couple.

1:55pm

Four!

Another boundary to Breese off the bowling of Patel. Nice shot, Breese moves to 36*.

1:53pm

1:51pm

Griddle

YB40 Essex

Some information for you all about our YB40 clash with Essex on Sunday. Get down if you can. http://www.durhamccc.co.uk/news/yorkshire-bank-game-1/

1:49pm

Bowling

Samit Patel continues after lunch.

1:46pm

Bowling

Ajmal Shahzad will open things up after Lunch.

1:41pm

Afternoon session

The players are back out after Lunch, play should be back underway shortly.

1:39pm

chrissafc

Luke Edwards (sports journalist) banned by NUFC.

Griddle

Declaration is never in question here, I was thinking more the approach: hit out and try and get a few quick runs or just keep on in the same fashion and grind out some more runs.

chrissafc

I still think we have every chance of winning this game

Stan Drop

Keep batting. As s/o said, little chance of a result, short of one side or the other imploding in 2nd inns. So make it unloseable. No declaration.

chrissafc

I said a lead of 50 would be great, we seem on course for that. Personally I'd just keep batting. Plenty time left in this game

stuartp

Long time to got today,even if we bat slowly we will have a session or more to bowl today.

christoff

steady away up to lead of 100. They have spent a long time in the field so could blas t a few quick ones out

Griddle

True enough, 44 ahead now, if we could get that to 80, there's a good chance of knocking a couple over before parity is reached.

brandonia

I'd personally like to see us get a bit of a spurt on. Even a quick 30 would give us a chance to have them 2/3 down in negative equity - so to speak!

Griddle

Root 130* at lunch, Yorks 251/3, is he peaking too early?

chrissafc

good effort gareth breese

chrissafc

keep on batting

Griddle

So should we be looking to crack on after lunch, or just carry on in the fashion grinding out whatever lead we can get? I say the latter, Notts must be itching to get off the field, so every over we keep them out there is a bonus at this stage.

Lunch

Good session for Durham as they surpass Notts' first innings total and Will Smith carried on his good from yesterday making 150 before he was out. Work still to be done hopefully the lads can build a solid lead. Come on Durham!!

12:42pm

Haslam

Haslam

After lunch we need to start throwing the bat at it, 100 run lead and 5 sessions left its hard to see them getting into a winning position so we may as well press and see what we can make happen

12:41pm

brandonia

Smudge gone.

Haslam

Before the Yorkshire game i said on lmc i thought smith would get a 150, wrong match... I wasn't being entirely serious but its still great. I wouldn't say its entirely out of the blue as he has threatened to go on with a couple of recent knocks

Morning all. Steady start, but need to bat on as long as possible - lead of 100+. Hawaay the lads!

1st innings lead, but looks like a flat pitch. Could be difficult to get a result out of this.

christoff

totally diffent situation Luke, we still have second inns to come it was 2nd inns declaration last week

safcluke

Quite impossible for us to win this game as even if we lead by 300 at the close tonight, they wouldn't declare after last week.

110 overs

Durham have earned three batting points while Notts have earned two bowling points in this innings. Match situation is Durham 6 Notts 5.

11:18am

christoff

morning all, enjoying this. howay lads keep going, I reckon we could get up close to 100 lead

keenasmustard

We can only get 3 batting points but Notts have also missed out on a bowling point.

After 109 overs

Durham are 306-6 after 109. Smith 123* and Mustard 20*. Partnership 43*. Trail by 14.

11:13am

safcluke

Looks like Swann struggled yesterday, anyone see his ball to Smith? 5ft in the air, 2ft down the leg side...

marchy22

if mustard gets going we can look to a 100 lead minimum, well batged smith, well desrved century

Four!

Mustard crashes a boundary to the fence off Shahzad. He moves to 20*.

11:11am

chrissafc

we got that bonus point with 2 overs to spare.

Bowling

Stuart Broad is sharing the ball with Shahzad this morning.

11:08am

little_smudge

Massively happy for Will yesterday, hoping he can push on for 150, maybe even 200. In other news, 100 days til the Ashes test at the EDICG.

Re: keenasmustard

I can't edit them once I've posted.

11:06am

keenasmustard

Spoilsport Simon. Now my last post looks odd now you've amended yours.

keenasmustard

We must have 900 ;)

Ed Syers

I reckon we can push on towards 400 to be honest.

chrissafc

a very welcomed bonus point that. well done durham

chrissafc

personally i think a lead of 50 would be excellent

Mark

Would be handy, don't want to have to chase too many batting last especially with Swann bowling.

300 up and Bonus Point!

That boundary from Smith brings up Durham's 300 and the third batting bonus point. Come on Durham!!

11:04am

Four!

Smith gets the first runs of the day off his legs to the boundary. He moves to 123*.

11:03am

safcluke

60/70 lead?

Mark

What's the most we can realistically hope for in terms of a lead? These 2 then Breese and Wood so plenty of batting. Onions can be vey useful too.

Bowling

Ajmal Shahzad will open the bowling on day three.

10:59am

brandonia

Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way Ha'way!!!!!!

I think Jessie J will sell out. She's not my type of music but she's popular with those teenage types.

Durham

The players are making their way onto the field for the start of play.

10:57am

auldtimer

Glorious sunshine here at Trent bridge, here's hoping we bat till lunch at least.

Griddle

Morning folks - confident of a decent 1st innings lead this morning?

safcluke

Why didnt Durham apply for a New Zealand ODI. Sold out last time.

safcluke

Not with tragic music though.

chrissafc

plus the club need to explore all possible ways to generate money

chrissafc

our groundstaff are excellent, i'm sure they will have been consulted about it

chrissafc

didn't think of that. had to be said the outfield near the old scoreboard was chewed up last season after tom jones concert

safcluke

@brandonia - Agreed.

safcluke

Morning all. Hundred for Mustard & a double hundred for Smith please.

brandonia

Ridiculous. Just a month before the Ashes Test and we'll have loads of charvas spilling drink and their guts all over the outfield.......

Update

Durham start the day 297-6 with Will Smith 119* and Phil Mustard 15*. Durham trail Nott's first innings by just 23 runs.

10:44am

chrissafc

she's our T20 signing

keenasmustard

So we're getting Jessie J in July, eh?

brandonia

Morning all. Ha'way Durham!! Here's to 500-8 declared.

Morning

Welcome to day three of our LV= County Championship clash with Nottinghamshire at Trent Bridge.
