Persistent rain in North Yorkshire prevented any play on day two of the second eleven championship match between Durham and Nottinghamshire.

The two sides took an early lunch and there was hope that the action could get underway in the afternoon, but the umpires were forced to abandon those plans when the rain returned.

With one day remaining in the match, Nottinghamshire are currently 121-1 in their first innings, a deficit of 114 runs.


STUMPS, DAY ONE. Nottinghamshire 2nd XI (121-1; Smith 52*) trail Durham 2nd XI (235 all out; Carr 61, Poynter 50) by 114 runs with nine first innings wickets remaining.

Half-centuries from Reece Carr and Stuart Poynter helped Durham recover from a bad start to reach a respectable first innings total on day one at Richmond.


The seconds lost the toss and slumped to 27 for three before Carr (61), Poynter (50) and a useful unbeaten 33 from Jamie Harrison lifted Alastair Maiden's men to 235 all out.

Nottinghamshire, who finished second in the championship last season, reached 121 for the loss of just one wicket in reply. Opening batsman Greg Smith will resume in the morning on 52, with Scottish International George Munsey 46 not out.

On a cloudy day in the North Yorkshire market town, Jack Burnham edged the burly figure of Luke Fletcher through to wicket-keeper Tom Keast without scoring, and then captain Graham Clark was also caught behind for just five runs.

Durham would lose Adam Hickey before two half-century partnerships dragged them away from trouble. Poynter and Carr combined well until Poynter reached fifty and immediately offered a return catch to bowler Brett Hutton, before Josh Bousfield (34) joined Carr at the crease.

A promising stand of 64 ended when 19-year-old Carr, well set on 54, was injured and forced to leave the field. He returned later but could only add seven more runs before becoming one of young off-spinner Matthew Carter's four victims.

Irish prospect Barry McCarthy took an early Nottinghamshire wicket when he bowled Anuj Dal, but the visitors made good progress thereafter and will start day two with a 114-run deficit and nine wickets still intact.
