Durham Jets supporter Kevin Taylor will jet away to Dubai courtesy of club sponsors Emirates Airline.

Mr Taylor, a Durham member who lives in nearby Gateshead, got through to the final of our 'Emirates Scoreboard' competition which took place at the final NatWest T20 Blast home game of the season.

Along with three other finalists, Mr Taylor was asked to predict the first innings score on the night and his guess of 169 was the closest to the total of 195 that Northamptonshire Steelbacks posted.

"I'm delighted" the lucky winner told durhamccc.co.uk.

"I've been through Dubai as I was lucky enough to go to the cricket in Australia at Christmas with Emirates but unfortunately we didn't get out of the airport so I'm really looking forward to seeing Dubai.

"Once it got past the eighth or ninth over I was fairly confident to be honest with it being a lovely hard pitch and a nice night

"My girlfriend has a son and two grandchildren in Dubai so it'll be a good way to introduce myself to them I imagine!"
