Marchy said he was on way to Sunderland

ashleys army

The miserable sod has gone missing

tomb

Derren Brown has Marchy

SonOfTheDesert

I've forgiven the Yorkshire debacle now! Speaking of which, what happened to Marchy?

tomb

Best side in league remains to be seen but we have some exciting players

ashleys army

Best side in league! Biggest heart's that's for sure

parky

We certainly brayed the opposition

stuartp

I will look forward to the post match interview for this one.

tomb

Wickets I meant

tomb

Headlines: Swann takes wicket in lead up to Ashes. Broad makes 46. Incidentally Durham won, but who cares

SuperBenks

I love cricket! I love Durham!

tomb

Can we campaign for a printed scorecard of that innings to go in the members lounge? Remarkable

Tynevalleyblackcat

Considering we all thought it was too many to chase in 25 and we did it in 20.2

Durham win!!

Breese cracks the ball to the boundary to secure a famous win for Durham!!!! Get in Lads!!!!

5:49pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Run rate was 9.04 for that innings. Brilliant effort.

tomb

Sky news will probably just cover Swann and Broads wickets as they usually do.

Stan Drop

Heroic, magnificent, Heroes all! 11 men of the match. Bodes well for the t20 season too!

Noz

nice one pingu

Ed Syers

I wont forget this game in a hurry. Every player deserves a shed load of credit for that.

brandonia

Headline tomorrow will still probably be Swann related........

thirskdurham

Lol pingu

brandonia

Noz

Fantastic result especially given the dramas during the night

brandonia

Correction 21 balls.

brandonia

5:45pm

brandonia

Captain Colly to finish it off.

tomb

What a fantastic game cricket is, so many twists and turns

Noz

4 needed

Wicket!!

Mustard goes for 70 caught by Hales off the bowling of Swann. Durham still need six to win.

5:44pm

raydetmold

Start the car

tomb

If we hadnt bowled for ever today, this climax would never have happened, would just have been a routine victory, this is the exciting way to do it

Ed Syers

Imagine the meltdown if we lost it from here!

brandonia

I'm making a curry too as it happens!

Stan Drop

No silly risks now. Fat lady not singing yet.

tomb

Curry and beer to celebrate for me

Noz

Swann has another wicket

Tynevalleyblackcat

Run rate now 1.5 per over!!

thirskdurham

Caught

darlostu

Team effort all round, this batting performance has been incredible

brandonia

I think I'll have a few cans of Red Stripe tonight to celebrate. I'm sure Breesey would approve!!

christoff

got to ba e a 6 to finish

tomb

Thanks Broady

Four!

Breese cracks another boundary off the bowling of Broad. Durham need six now!!!!

5:42pm

tomb

Broad is a decent player, but way overated and seems to get preferential treatment which annoys people.

stuartp

In all seriousness has to be Smith, but so many good performances.

Noz

Breese 4

thirskdurham

4

Mark

Smith man of the match for me

SonOfTheDesert

Without Wood, the situation wouldn't have arisen either.

10 needed to win!!

Durham need 10 to win off 4.3 overs.

5:40pm

brandonia

They've given up - Broad is on!!

pingu

i think woods efforts are worthy of a motm, but it has to be smith for his marathon effort

tomb

Without Smith this situation wouldnt have arisen to begin with

Tynevalleyblackcat

This game should gave all the lads a lot of confidence for the rest of the season. They have had to work really hard for this one.

parky

Smith as he was the foundation and he steadied the ship

darlostu

Smith kept the innings together

Noz

Ironically Ed, I think if it had been a T20 game we would have lost!!

stuartp

Stokes, if he hadn't dropped all those catches on the 1st day this could have got boring

brandonia

Yeah, Smith for me.

Noz

Woody i reckon - scored runs and took wickets

morzee

fantastic effort and let this be a lesson to all the doubters. .WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE SAY WE ARE TOP OF THE LEAGUE.

tomb

Broad

Ed Syers

Had to double take when I saw the score there. Unbelievable effort. We don't score this well in the t20s!

marchy22

smith it is then

Stan Drop

Smith and Woody jointly. Smith if that is not allowed.

christoff

tomb

No he's probly bricking it

Noz

Breese 6

thirskdurham

So do you reckon Colly is sat in the dressing room with his feet up saying "And that is why I was the world cup winning 20/20 captain."

tomb

But what a fielder!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Run Rate down to 3.46. We can get this in singles now.

5:32pm

Noz

tomb

Cricket is boring as everyone at work keeps telling me. Not like the X Factor or TOWIE.

brandonia

BUZZERS!!!!!

Noz

thirskdurham

Overthrow

thirskdurham

Lol. If we have a boring game, later in the season I might :)

Noz

Another drop - great stop by Swann though - benks

tomb

Re-assuring to see our England heroes doing so well leading up to the Ashes.

5:25pm

Noz

ashleys army

tomb

Lets bat 20 20 style for every innings from now on, lol

15 overs in

Durham are 143-1 after 15. Durham need 40 runs off eight overs.

5:23pm

tomb

I stayed clear of criticising our bolwers, however I did think the total was out of reach.

Noz

40 from 8 needed

thirskdurham

What do you mean brandonia?

thirskdurham

Oh, soz brandonia and noz

brandonia

You get sorted then Thirsky??

Dropped!

Stokes is dropped by Mullaney mid-off off the bowling of Patel.

5:21pm

thirskdurham

Stokes dropped

brandonia

Stokes dropped.

Noz

Stokes dropped

stuartp

Stunned, here. This would/will more than make up for losing out vs Yorks

14 overs in

Durham are 139-1 and need 44 runs to win off nine overs. Mustard 64* and Stokes 5*.

5:21pm

christoff

brandonia

Rotating the strike nicely now. 5 from that one.

Noz

139-1 44 needed from 9 overs

marchy22

im here just on my way to sunderland for derren brown

ashleys army

I hope all u doubters feel a bit embarrassed now

Noz

chris, let's hope he stays away then lol - only kidding marchy :)

christoff

Where's marchy he always goes awol when we are doing well

tomb

Must be a cracking batting wicket, hence why we couldnt get them out

Tynevalleyblackcat

run rate now 4.9. We are going at 10.36. Haway lads, just one more good over and we are nearly home.

christoff

Its a real roller coaster supporting durham great cricket so far this season!!

Chance!!

Stokes goes for a quick single and is almost run out. A good dive sees him home.

5:17pm

brandonia

49 needed off 10 overs.

brandonia

Stokes just makes his ground.

Noz

Stokes almost run out by Mullaney - just in

safcluke

Well, Rocky has just guaranteed his YB 40 place this weekend ha.

Tynevalleyblackcat

That's a whole over and bit worth of runs in one shot!!

brandonia

Mustard 6!!!

Noz

Mustard 6

Tynevalleyblackcat

58 needed off 11 at 5.27. We are going at 10.41.

chrissafc

this is mad

tomb

? Bit late with that one.

WICKET

WICKET. Stone gone caught at leg side for 69. 125-1 in 11th over. Stoneman's inns off 38balls 8x4 2x6

5:15pm

brandonia

Still just a tick above 5 an over.

Tynevalleyblackcat

The run rate is down below 6 and should be do-able without going silly. We can afford to take a few more risks though and a few more double figure overs wins us the game.

Noz

12 overs gone, 11 left 125-1 58 needed

brandonia

Stokes 3.

Noz

69 runs - 46 minutes - 38 balls - 8x4 and 2x6 - Stokes in next

tomb

Bring a night watchman in.

thirskdurham

Oh dear. Still hopefully stokes can support Mustard

brandonia

Need to be careful not to lose the momentum here.

tomb

Stokes next?

Noz

Swann gets Stoneman for 69

safcluke

Out.

tomb

Superb though embarassing for Notts.

Tynevalleyblackcat

A run a ball now and the run rate moves in our favour.

Tynevalleyblackcat

62 needed off 12 at 5.167. We are going at 10.83

Noz

Come on Durham!!!

tomb

We should open with mustard more often. If we bat firstwe could open the batting with him on occasions.

brandonia

62 needed from 12. Just over 5 an over!

stuartp

So that is the the 2 fastest half centuries in Durham 1st class history.

Tynevalleyblackcat

I would be over the moon with this in T20 never mind the championship.

Noz

Mustard 50 in 30 balls. 121-0

thirskdurham

Anyone got email for commentary on r five live? Just my dad's desperate to send in a message!

christoff

Great stuff this told you we could still do it on! Stokes next for me

brandonia

Durham's theme tune for the way home should be Pound The Alarm!!

Noz

mustard 4

brandonia

Colonel on the charge now!!

Noz

another 6 - Mustard this time

brandonia

Swann 2-0-24-0

Tynevalleyblackcat

78 required off 13 overs at 6.0. We are going at 10.50

brandonia

Patel has been tight like. We'll do we'll to score off him.

tomb

Bowling figures?

brandonia

78 needed off 13 overs. Run a ball.

Noz

100 off 59 balls

brandonia

Wonderful effort from these two so far no matter what happens after!

Noz

Might have been TVBC - trying to listen and type at same time - Durham 103-0 Stoneman another 6

tomb

Have to say well done to us so far but how can spposed international class bowlers go for 10 an over?

brandonia

Rocky SIX!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Required run rate is now 6.43.

safcluke

Lee Goddard Noz*

cestria

Seconds win afternoon T20. Scotland 168-3 11 runs short.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Over half way there in 9 overs. We have 14 left.

Noz

Sorry I meant Stonemans

Noz

93-0 at end of over - fastest 50 in 1st class cricket for Durham. luke Goddard previous best in 34 balls i think he said

brandonia

So there's 23 overs in total for us??

Update

Minimum of 15 overs left, we are 87-0 need 94 more runs

5:04pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

97 off 15 = 6.47. We are going at 10.68

safcluke

Breese in next?

thirskdurham

Does the 5live commentary read messages out and if so does anyone have the email?

safcluke

haway lads.

tomb

Wow, great effort.

stuartp

Only just over 6 an over needed now.

Noz

87-0 12 off Swann's first over

Tynevalleyblackcat

I agree Brandonia, we should have 16 AFTER this over.

thirskdurham

I hope we can keep it up.

thirskdurham

I hope we can keep it up.

Noz

batting well tomb

tomb

Is this the worst bowling in history or are we batting superbly?

Noz

and another 4 - 99 needed

brandonia

Well I'm sorry but we've been robbed. My phone has just clicked to 17:00 AFTER Swann began the over. Plus my phone is one of these smart phones that automatically set the clocks.

marchy22

mrant i meant meant lol

Noz

Mustard 4

tomb

I have A dccc cap if that counts

marchy22

chat i think he mrant ha ha

Tynevalleyblackcat

its not 5pm yet, surely 17??

thirskdurham

Chat, soz

tomb

Match hat?

thirskdurham

*hat

Noz

16 overs left now - Swann on

thirskdurham

Any other counties have a live match hat?

tomb

Our pitch can sap the confidence of young batsman, though it looks to be playing much better this season. Give them decent surfaces and they can bat.

Noz

75-0 4 from Patel's 1st over. I reckon 1 plus 16 overs left

brandonia

Cracking effort mind, might pinch another over before 5pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

16 plus this one I reckon, so one less than I was hoping for, but that last over should help a bit.

chrissafc

thanks

Noz

16 from 5pm chris

chrissafc

how many overs left approx. ??

Noz

Samit on to bowl

Stoneman 50!

Stoneman brings up 50 off 24 balls. 8 boundaries and a 6! 6 overs down 71-0

4:56pm

chrissafc

10pm

brandonia

Anyone know what time the polling stations Close?!!

Noz

Noz

Rocky 51 from 24 balls. 7 4s and 1 6

thirskdurham

If you were a notts fan, would you be confident now?

chrissafc

5.4 Shahzad to Stoneman, FOUR 5.3 Shahzad to Stoneman, FOUR 5.2 Shahzad to Stoneman, SIX

pingu

I hope these 2 dont get poached for the IPL Great stuff, isnt 4 day cricket boring ?

chrissafc

bloody heck rocky go on lad

Noz

lol @ Morzee

Durhamlad

Mr Stoneman should maybe adopt this approach more often i think! Nice and positive seems to work for him :)

Noz

and another 4 - Rocky on to 49

morzee

if I'd gone for 25 in 2 I'd claim to be injured as well

Noz

another 4 to Rocky

Tynevalleyblackcat

Brilliant stuff so far. Keep it up lads.

Noz

59-0

stuartp

5 Live will be wishing they had stuck with this match instead of the London match

Noz

Rocky 6

brandonia

Can the final hour only be announced at or after 5pm??

Noz

Broad 3 overs for 27. Fletcher 2 overs for 25. Hes injured now though so Shahzad is on

Tynevalleyblackcat

Run rate required now 6.9

Stan Drop

Oh YESS lads!!! GO! GO! GO!

brandonia

@Thirsk - download TuneIn in the appstore. Its free. Then search Live Event 16.

Noz

Mustard 17 from 10. Rocky 35 from 20

tomb

Is Broad bowling?

Durhamlad

Do we have it in us? A little bit of luck and who knows :s

Noz

another 4 to Rocky - 52-0

thirskdurham

Anyone know how I can get radio commentary on ipad?

tomb

What is the required run rate now?

raydetmold

Keep it going please Noz

marchy22

yeah keep it coming noz

Tynevalleyblackcat

Keep it coming Noz

brandonia

Great work Noz, you keep it coming.

brandonia

Cheater Hales misfields for 4!

Noz

if you're getting sick of my ball by ball commentary just let me know

brandonia

Well done Peter! I owe you a pint next time you're in Sedgefield CC!

Noz

4 more

Update

Great start in this T20 style chase. 4 overs down & we are 41-0. Stoneman 25* & Mustard 16*

4:46pm

Noz

Risky run - Patel hit stumps - Willey says not out

brandonia

So how many overs is it? Dave Bracegirdle mentioning 24 now??

Tynevalleyblackcat

Required rate down to 7.3

Noz

gotta feel sorry for Chesney Hughes

Tynevalleyblackcat

183 off 24 is 7.625. We are going at 9.65. Just keep it up and the run rate will come down.

morzee

how many players have scored 270 and been losing side?

Noz

Another 4 to Rocky 41-0 off 4 overs

Noz

4 to Mustard

marchy22

haway

thirskdurham

Come on

Tynevalleyblackcat

That's more like it. Come on lads, give it some welly.

chrissafc

haway lads get stuck in

Update

Update from Martin Emerson from BBC who is at the ground: 'The scorers tell us there will actually be a possible 24 overs for this run chase, given @TrentBridge must bowl 16 overs from 5pm'

4:42pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

They have bowled 3 all ready and its 20 to 5 now, so even going slow that would be another 4 plus the 16 after 5pm, makes another 20 with the target now 153, so that should be 7.65 per over and we are going at 10.

Noz

Stoneman 4 more 30-0 in less than 3 overs

Noz

theyve got no slips and no close catchers - 26-0. Minimum of 21 overs but they must bowl 16 after 5pm

marchy22

give it everything

Noz

Just what he said - unless he meant after Broad's first over only went for 4

Tynevalleyblackcat

Can't be right Noz. That would mean we only have 18 overs in total, match not due to finish till 6 and it should be 16 overs an hour, so should really be more like 25.

Noz

Stoneman - another 4 to him - 24-0

chrissafc

go on durham

marchy22

just blast it mustard, whos opening with mustard

Update

18-0 after 2 overs.

4:36pm

Noz

18-0 off 2 overs

Tynevalleyblackcat

We are ahead of the run rate after 11 balls.

Noz

guy on bbc has just said 9.82 per over required

Noz

2 boundaries for Mustard

Stan Drop

When you remeber what our tail enders did, you can't complain too much about theirs following suit.

keenasmustard

8.57 per over required from 21

Tynevalleyblackcat

Do we know how many overs we have yet?

marchy22

just feast on broads dross

chrissafc

Yorkshire won by an innings and 39 runs

keenasmustard

Need more than a run a ball.

tomb

The tea lady at Durham is also now the beer and pasty lady as their is only one queue for everything now

keenasmustard

We should never had got rid of Darren Blenkiron

ashleys army

Tomb your spot on wi ur assessment

chrissafc

I still don't agree with the declaration on Friday but that debate has been done to death now. Got to move on

tomb

Good point Marchy, when people sy may as well go win and bust as only 3 points for a draw, it doesnt take into account the points you give to rivals in the table.

brandonia

No chance.

marchy22

derbys certainities to go but yprks on course to beat them and go about twenty points ahead of us with a game in hand, thats why we should have batted them out the game when we lost to them

chrissafc

looks like Yorkshire are going to win

keenasmustard

Surely it's time to sack the tea lady now.

tomb

People dont seem to be taking into account, if we made a lot of runs and then Notts did, surely its a good pitch where its hard to bowl teams out. Likewise the Riverside, Day 3 and 4 last week. No coincidence when both teams bat long innings.

chrissafc

let's try and win this game instead of talking about who are worse than us. we've performed very well and in a positive manner. one last go today haway lads

safcluke

Derbyshire are my tip to go down. Yorkshire depends on Bresnan/Root/Bairstow.

tomb

In my opinion Derby and Yorks could well finish below us, not convinced by Surrey either. But it means nothing if we dont get the results.

SonOfTheDesert

This might not have seemed so bad if Saturday hadn't been so desperate. But now I worry that this - charge towards victory followed by meek surrender - is going to be the pattern of the summer. Depressing stuff.

chrissafc

when its the last wicket they delay tea

marchy22

whos worse than us

tomb

On balance its a decent performance and result, we will probably be midtable again as there are better and worse teams than us.

tomb

No allowances for the overnight disturbance? Disapointing day but overall a good result on a good batting pitch

stuartp

A bit negative because one of the best teams in the division have managed to scrape a draw at home to us.

marchy22

they took the extra hal hour luke

safcluke

How come after tea there is always 32 overs left, yet now its down to 22? What obvious fact am I missing?

keenasmustard

I feel like going out and punching a horse and I'm not even from Newcastle.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Why suddenly 22 or 21. I thought it was 25.

marchy22

no chance in 21 overs

safcluke

180 off 22. Just shake hands now.

keenasmustard

Well Notts have batted us out of this and to be honest that shouldn't have happened. It's village. Just village.

chrissafc

open up with mustard

durham dave

Knew in my heart overnight we wouldnt have guts , bottle or ability to win just like Yorkshire game. Shocking messing about all day should been over hours ago

marchy22

have a blast till we lose a few wickets, cant see us doing it to be fair, that final wicket has cost us

Correction

Correction we have just been told it is 21 overs we have to chase the runs down.

4:14pm

Stan Drop

Yes, at least start as if it was T20. Colonel and Stokes to open,then if we get to five down, colly and Benks to drop anchor and avoid defeat. THAT really would rankle.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Take some risks and see if we can get off to a flyer.

chrissafc

just give it your best shot durham

Tynevalleyblackcat

That 7.3 so probably not realistic. Would still like to see us go out and give it a shot mind.

WICKET

Swann dismissed by Borthwick lbw who picked up his 4th. We need a 183 runs off a minimum of 25 overs.

4:10pm

brandonia

I'm hearing a MINIMUM of 25 Luke. So yeah, 25. Notts won't be rattling through will they!

Tynevalleyblackcat

5.7 then. Doable with a good start on this track and certainly worth a try. If we lose 4 or 5 then shut up shop.

marchy22

try about 22 at the most

safcluke

32 I'm sure.

Tynevalleyblackcat

If I knew how many overs we had left we could work out the required run rate. It looks like about 5.8ish to me.

safcluke

182 to win. 32 left?

brandonia

75 runs scored for the last wicket. The straw that broke the camels back......

brandonia

Too late.

Tynevalleyblackcat

How many overs left.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Wicket

marchy22

on monday yes but not the position we were in going to this morning no

morzee

although we haven't list this game it feels like it. Good response following Saturday though and we would all have taken a draw monday morning. wouldn't we.?

durham dave

Disgrace like minor county this will cost us

marchy22

:'-(

Stan Drop

180 lead. How many overs left (minus two)?

chrissafc

Gutted

brandonia

They'll shake hands soon.

ashleys army

Ah I see could b right there but I thk its very open this year who knows?

marchy22

this feels like a defeat, i thought we were nailed on after yesterday amd when we had them nine down, im so deflated

safcluke

Even without Swann/Broad, Gurney and Graeme White the spinner are useful cricketers.

brandonia

Is anyone there? How many overs left?

safcluke

No mate, Notts.

Ed Syers

If we got them out before tea I'd like to think we'd at least have a go. Then again, I'm always too optimistic.

ashleys army

Luke did u mean Yorks for champs?

chrissafc

broken arm that lad

safcluke

Ah, already beaten to it.

safcluke

Hannon-Dalby & Rikki Clarke over again?

marchy22

they will shake hands at tea

ashleys army

This is like Somerset v wark the other day Wen rikki Clarke dug in for ages last wkt

brandonia

Can't believe we've let these muppets deny us like. Awful.

marchy22

we arent chasing anything, the game is gone

Ed Syers

I was hoping we'd have them bowled out by lunch after yesterday. Now we're chasing a minimum 170 run lead. Not good.

marchy22

im devastated here like

ashleys army

Who yorkshire? You must be kidding,half their team will be off playing for England

brandonia

Peeved off now like. How many overs are left?

marchy22

well played notts

Tynevalleyblackcat

Its the next couple of overs or this one has gone sadly.

Mark

We were also close to a wicket in those 7 overs on Friday, Root nearly bowled and think there was a lbw shout too.

safcluke

"win it" meaning the Championship not the match.

safcluke

Sign of a good team lads, that's why I backed them to win it.

christoff

Rushy & Stokes look under used?

ashleys army

Tomb,but you couldn't have imagined they'd get the 300+ 2nd innings they didn't seem to have it in them

marchy22

this is dissappointing like :-(

Mark

Couldn't tell from my seat but players seemed v confident

tomb

By the way, was it a run out for Root or not? Looked in from my seat.

christoff

does it? presumably that half hour is taken off the final session, most odd?

safcluke

What's the lead and how many overs left?

morzee

when the game lasts 4 days you have to take account of the weather as it is part of it.

tomb

Dont think Colly makes many captaincy mistakes but that may have been one, IF, they knew how the pitch was playing, then should have batted on to make it safe then backed our bowlers.

keenasmustard

9 down so 1/2 hour gets added.

christoff

Are they still playing? what happened about tea?

Stan Drop

Ouch! Ten off four balls.

Mark

Think we would have, we'd have been able to bat them out of it and still have overs at them on Friday night. Still think it was a good declaration in the circumstances.

tomb

But Stan it had flattened out for our 2nd innings. We never looked like getting out. neither did they.

stuartp

That and a couple of friendly decisions from the umpire in the favour of Root.

marchy22

you shouldnt be playing the weather, play the game

tomb

Just to say I was all for the declaration at the time , lol.

Stan Drop

The Declaration was perfectly reasonable. Even Colly could not have predicted that the wicket would flatten out and that young Root would play a monster innings. Unfortunate result for Durham, but a great advert for the four day game. Looks as if this one will go the same way.

tomb

I think the mistake against Yorkshire was not accounting for the fact the pitch had flattened out. The ease with which they reached the target would suggest it was a risky declaration. Without the rain I think we would have batted on.

Mark

Yes and the loss of those 11 overs on Friday night.

ashleys army

We don't want to be playing for draws,possibly right abt that march

stuartp

Also the forecast suggested rain for the last morning so we were looking at a shortened day. That didn't happen, but if it had done we could have found ourselves short of time to bowl Yorks out.

christoff

totally agree Mark!!

Mark

Took a brilliant innings from Root, we'd have won that 99 times out of 100

marchy22

no the declarition was suicidal against yorks

Mark

Yes

ashleys army

The yorkshire defeat was unlucky but we were trying to be positive surely that's the way to play,don't you's agree?

marchy22

not really we just havent been good enough to the last wicket

Stan Drop

Notts 150 ahead. Declare now Durham all out 136.

morzee

cricketing gods conspiring against us. first joe root now a double fire alarm

marchy22

not enough we have bowlwd alot with the spinners being on

brandonia

How many overs left??

stuartp

No easy wins in Div1 this year.

marchy22

its a draw now, not enough time left

marchy22

we cant keep letting wins get away from us

Noz

Encouraging that we're getting into winning positions though

Ed Syers

After the Yorkshire result it would a big blow if we didn't win this given the position we were in.

Griddle

bit of a mixed bag for us so far this season unfortunately.

brandonia

Draw written all over this now.

Ed Syers

We really needed it before tea.

marchy22

fulk credit to notts gfor saving the gme

safcluke

We're making hard work of this mind.

marchy22

times up now

CollingwoodFTM

PLEASE.

marchy22

if they get to a 200 lwad itbwill be time to shake hands

Mark

Good plan!

Tynevalleyblackcat

I am going to make a cup of tea and I expect this wicket by the time I get back.

christoff

marchy you said no chance against somerset and we won that!

Griddle

What score will they declare at? 200 lead?

marchy22

170 and its no chance and its no chance if we dont take this wicket before tea

ashleys army

Got to say like 170+ wud be tough

tomb

Not that easy Haslam but we;re favourites.

marchy22

the lead is getting too much now

Haslam

Seems like a lovely batting track, if we get them out before tea we have this, even if its 5-6 runs an over needed

stuartp

If we get the wicket how many of our lads will fall asleep in the dressing room waiting for their turn to bat?

ashleys army

Pleased to see someone keeping the faith Chris

marchy22

we need the wicket first and it aint coming

christoff

Marchy we still have a brilliant chance of winning this good batting track with lightning fast outfield just need this wicket and off we go

Noz

Get the wicket and open with Mustard??

ashleys army

Fair comment but remember how it was for our tail yesterday,it ain't easy

Tynevalleyblackcat

It only takes one ball Marchy.

marchy22

i never said they were, just dissappointing.that we are gonna have no victories from two matches we should have won

keenasmustard

Howay let's have this pair.

Noz

Thanks Mark

Mark

Yes, think so

ashleys army

Howay man marchy these were county champs 2 year back they're not just ganna roll over

Noz

Am I right in thinking if the wicket comes right on tea, which is immediately taken, that we won't lose 2 overs for changeover??

marchy22

its defo above four now, another match sliping throuh our fingers

ashleys army

Morz,better than not winning at all

Tynevalleyblackcat

How many overs left? Run rate must be pushing 5 now.

morzee

looks like I'm going to have an exciting/nervous drive home from work later. why do we have to win the hard way?

104 overs in

Notts are 293-9 after 104 overs. Swann 31* and Shahzad 6*. Lead is 142.

3:15pm

marchy22

this partnership is utting the game beyond us

Noz

Tea soon??

Edged

Swann edges the ball through the slips to the boundary. So close to second slip there.

3:13pm

chrissafc

partnership 35

marchy22

we need this wicket now

chrissafc

142

chrissafc

139

tomb

Wish I was there, could be an exciting finish

chrissafc

Nottinghamshire lead by 134 runs with 1 wicket remaining

RE: tomb

134 at the moment.

3:12pm

tomb

Lead is?

christoff

Howay Graham/Rushy wrap this up

chrissafc

good stuff cheers

cestria

At the Riverside - Seconds win first T20 in last over. Richardson & Muchall did the damage. Second game Seconds 135-3 in 14 overs. Pringle 84*

New Ball Taken

Durham have taken the new ball. Graham Onions to bowl.

3:10pm

chrissafc

new ball taken

tomb

Also Essex CCC want to use the Olympic Stadium for 20 20.

Re: Brandonia

Don't think so.

3:09pm

Griddle

Swann in good touch? Seems to be batting sensibly enough. If he gets them to 150+ we might get a bit anxious (as I said earlier)

brandonia

Have we taken the new ball?

chrissafc

ticketing process was a right farce. I think the opportunity to see the rugby union world champions in the north east is an exciting opportunity. they must make tickets affordable though. I went to Scotland vs nz back in November tickets £10/£20 in areas and it sold out

safcluke

Olympic football was half empty at SJP apart from the semi/quater whatever it was.

brandonia

Surprised DCCC didn't apply to host RWC games!!

chrissafc

using football grounds to maximise revenue which is fair enough. the games in the region will be well supported.

tomb

Also we have Five, 911, Jessie J and Atomic Kitten at our Riverside ground.

safcluke

Samoa v Tonga infront of 13,000. How exciting.

Noz

Leicester's Amex football stadium chosen ahead of Welford Road, the rugby ground

safcluke

Aye, let them destroy Newcastles pitch instead.

Griddle

NUFC getting the rugby is great for the region, but not the pitch or the club.

keenasmustard

What next? England get the football world cup and some games get played at Newcastle Falcons?

tomb

It is Scotland? Oh well i'll stay well clear then (joke for anyone offended!)

chrissafc

Scotland vs samoa. Scotland vs south Africa and new Zealand vs tonga

keenasmustard

Surely they would play rugby matches on rugby grounds.

chrissafc

& with Scotland playing 2 games at Newcastle, it will guarantee good crowds which is good for the local area as it will bring money in

Ed Syers

Newcastle barely use the pitch, won't affect them too much.

tomb

Wow, didnt realise we were getting some of the big guns, assumed it would be Scotland or Tonga, lol.

chrissafc

delighted sunderland not selected. it would destroy the pitch during the football season

chrissafc

yeah I like international rugby union. excellent for the region to be hosting new Zealand and south africa

tomb

Is that another excuse for Pardew when they dont win?

Ed Syers

I can't believe it would be good for the pitch mid-season tomb

Noz

Me too if I'm honest :-)

tomb

I'm happy to jump on the bandwagon if England do well, lol

keenasmustard

Haway lads don't hang about. Give 'em the short stuff if they wont move.

Noz

Anyone care about the RWC?? Lol

tomb

Anyone care that SJP has the rugby world cup and the S Of Light hasnt?

marchy22

lets have this last wicket now

Change in Bowling

Mark Wood replaces Gareth Breese in the attack.

2:59pm

tomb

Might have cursed things with my Swann comments, apologies everyone.

100 overs bowled

Notts are 276-9 after 100. Swann 21* and Shahzad 1*. Lead is 125.

2:59pm

chrissafc

sounds like new ball taken

tomb

I'm a big Thorp fan but would like to see Wood keep his place. It may be between Breeze and Thorp for a place next match?

Tynevalleyblackcat

We can afford to take risks as well if its a low total.

tomb

Thats not a sure thing, depends on how the wicket is playing, if we start well it should be a doddle, we have a long batting order this game.

Tynevalleyblackcat

If that run rate gets to 6 we panic!!!

Tynevalleyblackcat

Required run rate would be 3.24 per over if the wicket fell now.

tomb

May need over 3 an over then, even if we bowl them out shortly. Sounds easy but who knos....

CollingwoodFTM

Just grab this last one boys.

chrissafc

120 lead. 39 overs to go after this one

tomb

Might try and catch us for a couple of days at the Oval, went down last year for all four days, not a single ball bowled, lol.

tomb

Bunny is no bunny, lol

stuartp

Swann is a decent late-middle order batsman, Onions and Harmison are tail enders but not total bunnies.

Griddle

Sorry christoff, I'm a Sunderland fan, it comes naturally to me to fear the worst.

96 overs bowled

Notts are 260-9 after 96 overs. Swann 5* and Shahzad 1*. Lead is 109.

2:48pm

tomb

He's ok, just not sure why we were concerned.

CollingwoodFTM

Swann is a better bat than Onions and Harmison put together.

tomb

Yeah, I would think that was when he bats high up the order not down amongst the lower order.

keenasmustard

Swann has a highest FC score of 183.

tomb

Broad and Swann arent great batsman, just cos they play for England on flat tracks, even our Onions and Harmy managed runs in the test side.

CollingwoodFTM

Now for the last one.

christoff

just get fed up with the negativity Griddle, even when performing brilliantly and on course for a win no offence marra

aidanb

ta da - I'm in thanks for the assistance webmaster great this performance so far

safcluke

Usually the bowling staff would see Swann gets out most often to the quicks, so you would think that would be our bowling plan. Nevermind

Griddle

Not sure me expressing my concern the two batsmen (both who have very high 1st class scores) justifies you making such a comment Mr Toff

chrissafc

must agree ray. breese bowling very well, was no need to change anything. we're doing fine here

christoff

talking rubbish does not take wickets!!

brandonia

Proper Bo!!

Noz

Gotcha :-)

raydetmold

I really do find some of the comments strange on here , bowling superbly tight , batsman under pressure hardly scoring any runs and people crying for the new ball to be taken ?

Tynevalleyblackcat

Yes!! 107 for 9. Just one good ball needed now. If this falls now we will only need about 2.3 runs an over.

Griddle

My comment accounted for Broad christoff

christoff

Nice one Scotty and Colly!!!!

New Batsman

New man at the crease is Ajmal Shahzad.

2:40pm

christoff

NO the ???? were for Griddle actually Noz "worrying times now"

Wicket

Borthwick strikes as he gets Broad for 10 caught by Smith. Notts 258-9. Lead is 107. Come on Durham!!

2:39pm

Griddle

brilliant stuff

Noz

GET IN

chrissafc

wicket for borthwick. broad out

Noz

Christoff if your ????s were for me I was merely pointing out the very low run rate - 1.5 per over for half a day. Hardly makes for entertainment

brandonia

Well I only nipped out to the post office and we've taken two key wickets. I reckon we've got til Tea to dislodge the last 2.

chrissafc

wicket

Haslam

New ball and fast bowlers will at least get the game moving along. Time is of the essence!!

christoff

risk with taking the new ball is runs could come quickly, I would stick with the way its going no panic

safcluke

Swann usually gets out by knicking to the keeper. Get Onions on!!

Griddle

My pessimism appears to be justified so far.

marchy22

take the new ball

CollingwoodFTM

These two are no mugs with the bat. be great to break this partnership.

92 overs bowled

Notts are 256-8 after 92 overs Broad 10* and Swann 3*. Lead is 105.

2:35pm

Ed Syers

We could just as easily take two quick wickets. No need to worry just yet.

christoff

?????

Griddle

Worrying times now, Swann & Broad can be quite effective with the bat, could easily take the target beyond 150.

Noz

Surrey 64-1 off 42 overs :-/

Tynevalleyblackcat

I reckon we still have around an hour and a quarter to get these last 2 as long as they don;t start scoring quickly.

marchy22

no definitely not

chrissafc

101 lead

tomb

Bacardi Breezers your tipple Marchy?

christoff

Get in Breesey lad, nearly there now come on finish them off

Tynevalleyblackcat

assuming its 48, then if we got these 2 now, we would need 2 an over to win.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Does that include the 2 that will be lost at the change of innings?

New Batsman

The new man at the crease is Graeme Swann.

2:25pm

safcluke

minus 2 for the chance of innings

marchy22

is that bacardi breeze tomb lol

safcluke

50 left today TVBC. Roughly

Tynevalleyblackcat

How many overs had been bowled at close last night?. Need to try and work out how many we have left today.

safcluke

These two can hang about.

chrissafc

new ball not taken yet

Tynevalleyblackcat

95 for 8. Down to just tail enders now as well. Surely we can close this out now??

keenasmustard

Nice.

tomb

Why does 1 always bring 1 or 2 or 3 wickets, never understood that, happens all the time. Breeze and Wood to keep their spots!

safcluke

Gerrin Gareth

Wicket!

Breese strikes as he removes Lumb caught and bowled for 123. Notts 246-8. Lead is 95.

2:22pm

stuartp

Important one that, last proper batsman. Now we need to winkle out the last couple.

chrissafc

lumb

tomb

Would like to chase 120 rather than 150. Whos out?

CollingwoodFTM

Who is it Chris?

safcluke

Onions and Rushy with the new ball to wrap this up.

CollingwoodFTM

Get in.

chrissafc

GERRIN

chrissafc

wicket

Re: Marchy22

Don't think so Breese and Borthwick are continuing at the moment.

2:21pm

raydetmold

Breeze and Borthwick are bowling so i can safely say no

88 overs bowled

Notts are 246-7 after 88 overs. Lumb 123* and Broad 5*. Lead is 95.

2:21pm

marchy22

have we took the new ball yet

safcluke

Still loads of time left.

chrissafc

lead is 95

chrissafc

51 overs to go

safcluke

Only squad I might have Bopara in is our 20/20 squad.

chrissafc

another maiden from breese

chrissafc

would be canny to see cook again.

safcluke

Chris I'm sure Cook is available for selection. All the England lads have 2 LVCC & 2 YB 40 games.

safcluke

They kept looking for reasons/chances to put him in the test team and he failed time and time and time and time again.

CollingwoodFTM

Hurrah.

raydetmold

haha brilliant Luke

chrissafc

half expect him to play on sunday against durham

safcluke

Alister Cook is probably the main reason. Essex is Nasser Hussians county who works on Sky and raves about him.

brandonia

Yep, Breese will be the tight spinner while Scotty can attack!

chrissafc

cheers :)

safcluke

There you go Chris.

safcluke

ESSEX/ALISTER COOK/SKY/NASSER HUSSAIN

chrissafc

can someone explain to me how ravi bopara is in the 30 provisional squad for the ICC trophy for England?

safcluke

thats what we were always told.

chrissafc

I was always under the impression breese was on a pro 40/t20 only contract

safcluke

Breese will be useful at places like Surrey/Sussex/Somerset where it turns.

chrissafc

that's a superb effort from breese

stuartp

With no Blackwell this year Breese will probably get a lot more cricket than he has been used to.

Mark

Yep, very good cricketer and unlucky not to play 4 day cricket in recent years

safcluke

Done a good job with bat and ball tbh.

Mark

Great performance from him

safcluke

Breese. 22 overs for 24 runs.

Mark

Yes

brandonia

GET IN SCOTTY!! Comms were saying the ball was turning so good decision to keep faith with the spinners I guess!

New Batsman

New man at the crease for Notts is Stuart Broad.

2:06pm

Mark

Be interesting to see if we take the new ball straight away

safcluke

Our CB 40 game at Surrey on Thursday, not on Sky. Strange

Tynevalleyblackcat

New ball could be taken now I think.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Good stuff. 85 for 7. lets get them 8 down before the lead reaches three figures.

christoff

Yeeess, come on keep them coming, how long til new ball?

marchy22

shazad can bat too

safcluke

Big wicket. Now for Broad and Swann...

Mark

Great!

marchy22

ill claim that one

marchy22

ill claim that one

Wicket!

Borthwick strikes as he removes Read for 29 caught by Colly at slip. Notts 236-7. Lead is 85.

2:01pm

marchy22

no chance of a wicket, these two will bat out till hands are shaken

CollingwoodFTM

Come on.

Chance!!

Lumb lofts another shot in the air but it lands safely between the fielders. Come on Durham!!

2:00pm

Mark

New ball must be due?

Tynevalleyblackcat

84 for 6. We badly need a wicket here now.

marchy22

come on wicket plz

safcluke

Chris Gayle?

safcluke

Freelancing cricketers, who will be the next one? KP?

tomb

I didnt know the guardian did interesting luke

safcluke

This is interesting... http://www.guardian.co.uk/sport/2013/mar/29/michael-lumb-freelance-ipl

safcluke

Aye he did.

tomb

Did he play at Yorkshire or am I thinking of someone else?

tomb

Didnt rate him then, used to wonder why Notts and England wanted him.

safcluke

Carberry was the same.

safcluke

Score 30 off 35 balls in a LVCC game then get out. Not the best in this format.

safcluke

He used to go too quickly too soon at Hampshire.

tomb

Lumb a much improved player from years ago.

safcluke

I'd fancy us chasing 150 off 30 overs.

marchy22

we needed that

78 overs bowled

Notts are 232-6 after 78 overs. Lumb 116* and Read 27*. Lead is 81.

1:52pm

tomb

Time for some reverse psychology. I bet Lumb gets a double hundred now and we dont get another wicket.

safcluke

Heaven knows why he is trotting down the pitch in this situation.

Chance!

Lumb charges down the pitch and misses the ball but Mustard can't gather the ball in time for the stumping.

1:51pm

tomb

Aonther good county match, shame more people dont watch, weather often ruins it like

safcluke

Looks like there will be a canny finish between Yorkshire and Derby.

marchy22

yeah and if we dpnt take earlybwickets with it then its a draw

brandonia

We're desperate for this new ball it seems.

tomb

New ball due any time soon?

marchy22

even better if he can take a hat trick, we need one

tomb

Great match by Wood, assume he will keep his place?

marchy22

haway

safcluke

Day off tomorrow for them probably and then YB 40 training on Saturday?

tomb

Beers on the bus bad idea if there isnt a toilet handy.

safcluke

tomb - If they win this they should get back on the bus and have a few beers.

tomb

Must admit to checking the score last night and assuming we already had this won. Didnt realise Lumb was still in.

Bowling

Breese will open things up after Lunch.

1:42pm

tomb

If the lads wrap this up quci then they can get back on the bus and have a good kip.

safcluke

Any 2nd XI 20/20 updates.

Mark

Yeah, that would mean a fascinating last session.

Haslam

Out at tea would probably just be a 150 lead with 30 or so overs left. You would fancy us to at least have a dart but each over and run vital now

Haslam

We've got until tea else we wont have enough time really. Could be a grandstand finish though

marchy22

we need to blast them out sharpish if we r to win

stuartp

New ball due soon. That needs to break the partnership and get us into the tail.

Mark

Still confident of the win but need at least one wkt in first half hour after lunch

safcluke

Need a wicket soonish.

christoff

We have 32 overs to take 4 wickets - then a 32 over run chase, still think we are looking good for the win imo

stuartp

Expecting this to trail off into a draw, but hoping for better.

christoff

As ever 1 wicket changes everything, keep the faith, its our session the next one

Lunch

It's Lunch at Trent Bridge. Notts are 222-6 after 74 overs. Lumb 111* and Read 23*. Lead is 71.

1:03pm

marchy22

was hoping for better than that :-(

ashleys army

It is but we can bounce back after lunch

brandonia

Notts' session that.

christoff

Couple of nelsons there, haway Rushy

Stan Drop

Haway Rushy!

One over till Lunch

Rushworth will bowl the final over before Lunch.

1:00pm

73 overs bowled

Notts are 222-6 after 73 overs. Lumb 111* and Read 23*. Lead is 71.

12:59pm

marchy22

we have only took the wicket of their number eleven in this session

ashleys army

I'd still rather be in our position than theirs

john little

every chance of a good finish here

chrissafc

71-6

Noz

And new ball just around the corner

john little

cricket is so unpredictable though

chrissafc

plenty cricket left in this game marchy

ashleys army

Don't panic just yet lads as tvbc said earlier if they get 150 ahead by tea it'll b exciting finish,we cud get that in a sess!

chrissafc

good effort that. I noticed they were in trouble at one stage.

marchy22

nailed on draw now

Noz

They were 38/6 chasing 140ish. Napier was batting at 8 and scored 78 off 88 balls I think

chrissafc

cheers, it sounded like a good game.

Noz

Yes Chris by 4 wickets. If only we'd held those catches 1st innings!!

Griddle

Lumb & Read both seem well set, not looking good this.

Stan Drop

Lumb on Nelson. Now's the moment lads!

chrissafc

did Essex win yesterday?

chrissafc

67-6

CollingwoodFTM

break this partnership boys.

marchy22

r we getting close to a wicket?

ashleys army

Anyone heard the rumour abt woody? Contract issues apparently

ashleys army

Well that's true but on current form maybe stick wi what we've got,its cheaper!

marchy22

we need anoother before lunch

65 overs bowled

Notts are 203-6 after 65 overs. Lumb 103* and Read 16*. Lead is 52

12:31pm

brandonia

Perhaps aye. I'd still have him at Durham like!

ashleys army

Good to b back lads I've had a few technical issues cudnt get on,wasn't I saying last week Brandon bt g smith not being motivated enough to play county cricket?

chrissafc

we're doing well here

200 up for Notts

Notts bring up their 200 in the 64th over. They lead by 49.

12:25pm

keenasmustard

Should let Smudge have a bowl. It's been his match so far.

Tristan

i thought scotty wasnt gonna bowl?

brandonia

Scotty bowling garbage at the moment - commentators words, not mine.

chrissafc

49/6

brandonia

Probably saving Rushy for an assault with the new ball AND perhaps hoping Woody can get some reverse-swing a la last year.

100 for Lumb

Michael Lumb reaches his century for Notts. It's taken 155 balls and he hit 17 boundaries.

12:21pm

christoff

Wood on for his second spell before Rushy's had one odd?

brandonia

Lumb 100.

Change in Bowling

Wood replaces Breese in the attack.

12:20pm

brandonia

Just seen the Fletcher wicket on SSN, seems like Scotty is getting a bit of turn like. Can anyone at the ground confirm this???

62 overs in

Notts are 191-6 after 62. Read 9* and Lumb 98*. Notts lead by 40.

12:19pm

marchy22

i saw him last year, hes a genius

Mark

Smith probably saving his runs for next week! Just shows how tough opening the batting is when a great player like him struggles early season.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Yeah, can't see us getting another wicket all day here now.

brandonia

You know how it works TVBC ;-)

Tynevalleyblackcat

My daughter saw him at the Theatre Royal and was very impressed.

brandonia

Graeme Smith out for 0 today.

marchy22

im off to the to the sundeland empire tonight to see derren brown, anyone a fan?

Tynevalleyblackcat

They don't need to fail twice. They could put on 150 for these 4 wickets and still lose.

marchy22

agreeed brandonia

brandonia

They won't fail twice TVBC.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Read got 2 in the first innings and their 'decent batting tail' lost 4 wickets for 13 runs.

brandonia

Yep, always scores runs against us. Seeing how he failed first innings theres no way he'll fail twice.

Tynevalleyblackcat

We also have a new ball available in 20 overs and at this scoring rate they will only be 85 or so ahead by them.

marchy22

read tends to get runs against us

Change in Bowling

Gareth Breese replaces Ben Stokes.

12:11pm

Tynevalleyblackcat

Nice one. 31-6. Just need to keep chipping away. The run rate is very slow and I would back us to get 150 in the last session if necessary.

keenasmustard

Still a decent batting tail to come.

chrissafc

gerrin

New Batsman

The new man at the crease for Notts is Chris Read.

12:10pm

Wicket

Borthwick strikes as he removes Fletcher for 17 caught behind by Mustard. Notts 182-6. Lead is 31.

12:09pm

brandonia

Fletcher c Mustard b Borthwick 17. 182-6 OR 31-6.

parky

woohoo!

stuartp

Needed that

Tynevalleyblackcat

They are 31 for 5 Marchy. He has a long way to go to save the match.

brandonia

YES!!!!!

59 overs bowled

Notts are 182-5 after 59. Fletcher 17* and Lumb 98*, Notts lead by 31.

12:07pm

marchy22

lumb saving the match for notts

brandonia

Lumb 100.

Stan Drop

Run rates crept up to just over 2p/o. Nothing to worry about yet

brandonia

Getting away from us now like..... 26-5.

marchy22

match

marchy22

a couple of wickets and its our march

Stan Drop

Yes Ray, 92 highest score, but average of only 15. The score he is on now. Time he was out.

christoff

Give Rushy a whirl only bowled 4 so far, he s the man to start the collapse I reckon

bryn

*premier inn ;(

keenasmustard

Haway lads lets have a wicket. We were on fire yesterday. In more ways than one.

bryn

Travel lodge,times are hard :(

Noz

Reverse psychology marchy :-) Which hotel were the lads in?

marchy22

we r gonna struggle to take these five wickets i think :-(

CollingwoodFTM

Haway Lads, lets get these wickets.

55 overs in

Notts are 165-5 after 55 overs. Lumb 85* and Fletcher 13*. Notts lead by 14.

11:54am

raydetmold

Fletcher has a highest score of 92 i see in first class cricket

Maiden

Stokes sends down a maiden in the 55th over.

11:53am

brandonia

20-0 from 13 overs today.

marchy22

haway

brandonia

Aye, everytime SSN cut to the ground you can perfectly see the pitch in behind - but for the scorecard graphic...... Useless Sky.

Chance!

Lumb goes for a big shot and doesn't quite connect but the ball lands short of Stoneman. Come on Durham!!

11:47am

chrissafc

sounded like a chance that

brandonia

Scotty on for Onions. Have to say, I was just about to type to get him on!

marchy22

wicket please

Change in Bowling

Scott Borthwick replaces Onions in the attack.

11:46am

Tynevalleyblackcat

10 for 6 would sound better again!!

safcluke

10/5 sounds much better.

Change in Bowling

Ben Stokes replaces Mark Wood in the attack.

11:43am

52 overs in

Notts are 161-5 after 52 overs. Fletcher 11* and Lumb 83*. Notts lead by 10.

11:42am

safcluke

Graeme Smith is really struggling with county cricket isnt he?

safcluke

Made with coconut usually arent they?

brandonia

Sri Lanka curry.

safcluke

Or you nipped over to Sri Lanka for 5 minutes?

safcluke

Sri Lanka curry?

brandonia

Nah, I'm not too bad Bryn. Had a Sri Lanka but the place we went makes Sri Lanka's rather tepid.....

safcluke

4-5. Excellent

bryn

morning lads,brands are you in need of a mini milk after your ruby last night?

brandonia

Fletcher hit on the head. Keep it coming!!

Tristan

so whats the crack with this fire people keep mentioning?

keenasmustard

Morning all. Let's hope we can get through the tail quite quickly. Would prefer us to chase less than 100.

marchy22

keep them going

Ouch

Another hit in the head to Fletcher as a bouncer from Wood clatters into him.

11:33am

brandonia

Lumb nailed on for a big hundred to be fair.

Tristan

lumb looks capable of 2 50s in this match tbf

marchy22

lumb already has his 50 luke ;-)

safcluke

Lumb/Broad/Swann & Read are capable of 50's. Lets keep at it.

Stan Drop

Run rate one per over at the moment. keeps the pressure building, and they're not getting away from us.

brandonia

4-5.

Tristan

bang bang lets make this score look a bit better haway lads

Scores level

Lumb hits a single and brings the scores level.

11:24am

48 overs bowled

Notts are 150-5 after 48 overs Lumb 79* and Fletcher 5*. Trail by 1.

11:23am

brandonia

Scores level.

Tynevalleyblackcat

Nobody is saying it will be easy, but to be fair, we have already done the hard part.

Maiden

Onions sends down a maiden in the 48th over.

11:22am

raydetmold

Broad Swan and Read can all bat , it wont be easy

marchy22

lets have a wicket now, come on lads

brandonia

Yeah, agree with that TVBC. Either 150-200 runs or 35+ overs.

Tynevalleyblackcat

-1 for 5. Assuming we have a full day's play, I reckon we have 55 overs to get these 5 wickets as that would leave us 37 or so to get the runs and you would expect us to score quicker than then given the situation.

Maiden

Wood sends down a maiden in the 47th over.

11:18am

45 overs bowled

Notts are 147-5 after 45 overs. Lumb 78* and Fletcher 4*. Trail by 4.

11:09am

marchy22

give fletcher some more sweet chin music

brandonia

Good morning all. A tired Durham side this morning it seems. Lets get through them!

RE: christoff

Thanks.

11:05am

Stan Drop

Possibility of thunderstorms for Ray and me, but looks like a fine clear forecast for Nottingham. let's put them to the sword. Hawaay the lads!

christoff

the balls not that new Simon but we know what you mean

Bowling

Graham Onions will share the new ball this morning.

11:03am

Maiden

Wood sends down a maiden with the first over of the day.

11:02am

Griddle

early wicket would be nice........

marchy22

lets get stuck into them

raydetmold

Good morning from an overcast Germany , come on Durham

raydetmold

Good morning from an overcast Germany , come on Durham

Update

Notts begin the day 145-5, six runs behind Durham's first innings total.

11:00am

christoff

morning all, great chance of victory here, howay Durham!!

stuartp

I'm sure it is just what the Notts tail enders want to see. The Durham quicks running in nice and fired up, angry that they didn't get any sleep.

Bowling

Mark Wood will open things up this morning.

10:59am

chrissafc

2 hours sleep each emmerson reporting. half 2 fire in the plant area of hotel. 4.55am they got rooms in a hotel round the corner

safcluke

Was it you Marchy?

marchy22

probably some.notts fans

chrissafc

1st alarm went off was false alarm. 2nd alarm went off 2.30am, sounds like they have had to move hotels about 4.30am

chrissafc

fire at hotel.

marchy22

enlighten us morzee

stuartp

Was going to ask the same thing marchy

marchy22

how have the players had no sleep?

Durham

Durham had an excellent day with bat and ball yesterday and need to continue that to take the remaining five Notts 2nd innings wickets this morning.

10:51am

morzee

morning all. hope the players are feeling okay with no sleep. don't fancy chasing 150 plus so need to wrap it up early.

Morning

Welcome to the final day of the LV= County Championship clash with Notts at Trent Bridge.

10:48am

Have your say
