No Anderson or Chapple for Lancs. Katich is captain.

Frankjw

Thanks

safcluke

Breese opening the bowling.

Mark

We won it and are bowling.

Frankjw

Toss?

Frankjw

Have we a Simon today or do we just talk among ourselves?

Mark

Just checked cricinfo-he played against Hampshire last year but the game was abandoned after 6 overs.

Mark

Is it his debut?

safcluke

Pringle in for Thorp.

Berb

Got to get something @ Lancs today Lads. Come on you Dynamos :-)

Stan Drop

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.

Stan Drop

End of. We've been turned over, Bumble says. Must try harder.

Stan Drop

Aaaargh! dropped off scotty's first ball.

Update

Rushworth grabs another as Breese takes the catch to dismiss Napier for 11. Essex 6-199. Need 11 from 17

7:20pm

marchy22

score?

WICKET

WICKET! Wood gets his 2nd with Breese taking the catch. Pettini gone for 23. Essex 180-3, 30 from 32 required.

7:06pm

Update

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

7:02pm

Update

Rushworth comes back into the attack at a crucial time. Wickets and dot balls vital at this point. Essex need 34 from 42.

6:57pm

Update

Essex now 166-3. Equation is that they need 44 from 48.

6:54pm

Update

Borthwicket brought back into the attack. Essex 144-3, 66 more required off 12 overs. Some tight bowling & wickets needed here.

6:37pm

Reply

Haslam- they have 13 overs to get the runs not 24.

6:32pm

Haslam

Doh, not 50 overs! Ok then a handful of tight overs could make me hope then��

marchy22

there isnt 24 overs left

Haslam

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

WICKET! Well deserved wicket for Thorp who gets the key wicket of Westley for 71. Essex 138-3. They need 72 runs, pressure building.

6:28pm

Haslam

Thorp gets westley, two new men at the crease

WICKET

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.

6:20pm

jo61

agree, scoreboard terrible. Durhams own much more informative.

WICKET

The change to spin works as Borthwick gets the wicket of Quiney for 50. Hopefully more wickets to tumble.

5:53pm

Update

50 up for Quiney and 100 for Essex without the loss of a wicket.

5:52pm

Stan Drop

'Fraid I think you're right this time Marchy. 6 an over they'll be home with overs to spare.

Update

Essex moved to 82-0 after 14th. Quiney 40*, Westley 39*

5:42pm

Update

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*

5:17pm

marchy22

essex will cruise to victory

Update

Essex off to a quick start 24-0 after 3 overs. Rob Quiney 19 from 15.

5:01pm

Stan Drop

If they manage to defend this, it will have been a good day's work.

Stan Drop

Good to see spectators allowed on the outfield during the interval.

cestria

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.

4:34pm

Stan Drop

209. My prediction was one too many! Not enough I fear unless our bowlers play out of their skins.

50 p/ship

50 run partrnership up off just 43 balls, handy few runs these two are putting together. Muchall 42* and Breese 32* into the 37th

4:18pm

manurule175

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

Update

After 34 overs we are 159-5. Muchall 32* & Breese 12*. Got to lift this run rate up in these last few overs

4:06pm

chrissafc

This sky sports scoreboard at the ground is poor

Stokes out

Stokes run out for 51 after going for two. Durham 141-5

3:52pm

Update

Durham 132-4 after 29 overs. Stokes 50* and Muchall 17*. Nice partnership here of 36.

3:43pm

Stokes 50

50 for Ben Stokes who has batted very well this afternoon. His 50 off 62 balls and has included 5 boundaries and a six.

3:41pm

manurule175

Still reckon we will get 250, stokes 100

Stan Drop

On the 30/50 overs rule we will just double this, so looks like about 210. Enough?

100 up

100 up in the 24th over Ben Stokes 38* and Muchall 2*

3:20pm

Wicket

WICKET. A slower delivery from Mahmood gets Benkenstein who is bowled for 16. Durham 94-4 in 23rd

3:17pm

manurule175

Big innings for stokes now, 3 figures for him.

marchy22

we wont get 200

marchy22

haway stokes show us what your made off

Stan Drop

Aaah! benks gone.

safcluke

Afternoon all. Slow improvements here...

50 p/ship

Another boundary to Stokes brings up the 50 p/ship between him and Benkenstein. 91-3 in the 22nd over.

3:12pm

manurule175

Still plenty to come, 250 my prediction.

Update

20 overs down 78-3. Stokes 28* & Benks 11*. Partnership of 39

3:05pm

marchy22

how can we do what we did the other day then go to this

Stan Drop

Is it our wicket?

manurule175

too many dots

Stan Drop

Did anyone get a bet on for Durham to win after about 16h00 on Thursday? What odds?

Stan Drop

Nowt to write home about, is it?

50 up

16 overs down we are 50-3. Benks 6* & Stokes 6*

2:49pm
