No Anderson or Chapple for Lancs. Katich is captain.
Breese opening the bowling.
We won it and are bowling.
Have we a Simon today or do we just talk among ourselves?
Just checked cricinfo-he played against Hampshire last year but the game was abandoned after 6 overs.
Is it his debut?
Pringle in for Thorp.
Got to get something @ Lancs today Lads. Come on you Dynamos :-)
Oh bugger! we've got a points deduction in this competition too. That offends the principle of double jeopardy. Non bis in idem if you're posh.
End of. We've been turned over, Bumble says. Must try harder.
Aaaargh! dropped off scotty's first ball.
Rushworth grabs another as Breese takes the catch to dismiss Napier for 11. Essex 6-199. Need 11 from 17
WICKET! Wood gets his 2nd with Breese taking the catch. Pettini gone for 23. Essex 180-3, 30 from 32 required.
Good over from Rushworth just the 2 runs from it. 32 from 36 now the equation for Essex who have just taken the batting powerplay
Rushworth comes back into the attack at a crucial time. Wickets and dot balls vital at this point. Essex need 34 from 42.
Essex now 166-3. Equation is that they need 44 from 48.
Borthwicket brought back into the attack. Essex 144-3, 66 more required off 12 overs. Some tight bowling & wickets needed here.
Haslam- they have 13 overs to get the runs not 24.
Doh, not 50 overs! Ok then a handful of tight overs could make me hope then��
there isnt 24 overs left
We needed to do this about a hundred runs ago really. 24 overs to get 70 runs is easy, need a couple more out before i start getting too optimistic!!
WICKET! Well deserved wicket for Thorp who gets the key wicket of Westley for 71. Essex 138-3. They need 72 runs, pressure building.
Thorp gets westley, two new men at the crease
Wood comes into the attack again & gets Bopara lbw for 10. Essex 135-2 in the 25th over. A couple of good overs here and it will tighten right up. 75 more required off 95 balls.
agree, scoreboard terrible. Durhams own much more informative.
The change to spin works as Borthwick gets the wicket of Quiney for 50. Hopefully more wickets to tumble.
50 up for Quiney and 100 for Essex without the loss of a wicket.
'Fraid I think you're right this time Marchy. 6 an over they'll be home with overs to spare.
Essex moved to 82-0 after 14th. Quiney 40*, Westley 39*
We are hunting for the 1st wicket with Essex getting runs on the board quickly. 7 overs gone they are 43-0. Quiney 27* & Westley 16*
essex will cruise to victory
Essex off to a quick start 24-0 after 3 overs. Rob Quiney 19 from 15.
If they manage to defend this, it will have been a good day's work.
Good to see spectators allowed on the outfield during the interval.
Why is the electronic scoreboard so uninformative for this game. Doesn't show the batsman on strike or the fall of the last wicket. The number of overs is so small I can't read it on the opposite side of the ground. Because the cameras are here - the two huge YB logos are clearly visible.
End of Innings
Our innings has finished on 209-5 after a boundary on the last ball. Muchall 49* & Breese 41*, superb 69 run p/ship in the last 10 overs to get us to a good total.
209. My prediction was one too many! Not enough I fear unless our bowlers play out of their skins.
50 run partrnership up off just 43 balls, handy few runs these two are putting together. Muchall 42* and Breese 32* into the 37th
Wish we could finish this like notts, 50-2 of last 4 overs 6 W 1 1 . 6 4 2 1 1 4 4 1 2 1 6 1 1 W 1 1 4 1 1b
After 34 overs we are 159-5. Muchall 32* & Breese 12*. Got to lift this run rate up in these last few overs
This sky sports scoreboard at the ground is poor
Stokes run out for 51 after going for two. Durham 141-5
Durham 132-4 after 29 overs. Stokes 50* and Muchall 17*. Nice partnership here of 36.
50 for Ben Stokes who has batted very well this afternoon. His 50 off 62 balls and has included 5 boundaries and a six.
Still reckon we will get 250, stokes 100
On the 30/50 overs rule we will just double this, so looks like about 210. Enough?
100 up in the 24th over Ben Stokes 38* and Muchall 2*
WICKET. A slower delivery from Mahmood gets Benkenstein who is bowled for 16. Durham 94-4 in 23rd
Big innings for stokes now, 3 figures for him.
we wont get 200
haway stokes show us what your made off
Aaah! benks gone.
Afternoon all. Slow improvements here...
Another boundary to Stokes brings up the 50 p/ship between him and Benkenstein. 91-3 in the 22nd over.
Still plenty to come, 250 my prediction.
20 overs down 78-3. Stokes 28* & Benks 11*. Partnership of 39
how can we do what we did the other day then go to this
Is it our wicket?
too many dots
Did anyone get a bet on for Durham to win after about 16h00 on Thursday? What odds?
Nowt to write home about, is it?
16 overs down we are 50-3. Benks 6* & Stokes 6*
im delighted about thursday still,
Afternoon Stan , disappointing start
Hi Marchy. Cheer up. You should still have asmile on from Trent Bridge!
Hi Ray. Sunny and warm here in Luxembourg too. Are we the only ones following on LMC today? Mind, I've got the telly on too! We need some tonk soon.
Ungood! C'mon lads. Essex is/are rubbish. We should hammer them even without Bunny.
Stoneman the next to go, he is clean bowled by Topley for 18. Durham 39-3 in the 11th over
Colly goes for 7, good catch to Mahmood who dives forward to dismiss him. Durham 37-2
Colly out for 7
Great shot by Colly, he lobs down the ground for 4. He is 7* & Stoneman 18* Durham 37-0 after 9 overs
