Squad Picked For Quarter-Final

Squad Picked For Quarter-Final

Durham have won three of their last four Royal London One-Day Cup games

Durham have named a 14-man squad for the Royal London One-Day Cup quarter-final against Yorkshire Vikings at Headingley (Thursday, 10.30am start).

Ben Stokes is away on international duty with England but Head Coach Jon Lewis could name an unchanged side from the previous game against Surrey.

Keaton Jennings and Paul Collingwood both hit half-centuries in a five wicket win as Durham finished fourth in Group B and secured a place in the quarter-finals.

Opponents Yorkshire topped Group A and are boosted by the availability of one of their key players. Gary Ballance has been released by England to play in the match after missing out on selection for the 2nd Royal London One-Day International with India at Cardiff.

"We've gained momentum through the one-day format so the confidence levels in this form of the game are really high" Paul Collingwood told durhamccc.co.uk.
 
"To win this competition, you've got to beat the best teams, it's as simple as that. Yorkshire will certainly be up there as one of the best teams and playing at Headingley is going to be an added incentive to win the game.

"There is a lot of pressure on them, we've seen that with the Twenty20 game that we played against them at Headingley. We're confident we can cause an upset."

Ticket prices on the day will be £15 for adults, £10 senior citizens, £5 students and £2 juniors.
