Hampshire – Lumb, Adams, Vince, Ervine, Benham, Dawson, Mascarenhas, Burrows, Cork, Tremlett, Tahir

Mascarenhas opened the Hampshire bowling from the Lumley end and Dominic Cork took the ball from the Finchale End striking with his fifth ball when Blackwell was caught by Burrows for 1.

Some big hitting from Phil Mustard saw him reach fifty off 54 balls which included five fours and a six.  He was run out without adding to his score by James Vince who was making his one day debut for the visitors.

Durham were 93-3 after Ben Harmison was trapped lbw off Tahir for 25.  Rain stoped play at around 3.25pm.  Play resumed at 4.10pm with the overs reduced to 36 per side.

Will Smith added 29 to the Durham total before he became Ervine’s first victim when he was caught by Dawson when Durham were on 166.

Shivnarine Chanderpaul (54) was out with only a ball left of the Durham innings, caught by Adams off Cork, having scored 50 from 50 balls including eight fours. 

Durham finished on 207-5 off their 36 overs with Kyle Coetzer unbeaten on 29 and Gareth Breese 0*.

There was light drizzle during the interval, so the scheduled re-start was put back to 5.00pm however just as the players went to step over the boundary rope to return to the field the rain started to fall again.

Due to the delay in play Hampshire’s innings was reduced to 26 overs, requiring 174 runs (D/L).

Mitchell Claydon and Liam Plunkett opened the Durham bowling with Claydon picking up the scalp of opener Adams when he was caught by Ian Blackwell for 1, leaving the Hawks 12-1.

Michael Lumb scored fifty from 43 balls, including ten fours and a six, at which point the Hawks were 86-1.  Bad light stopped play at 6.25pm and the players returned to the pitch at 6.43pm only to return to the pavilion after two balls, Hampshire ahead on D/L.

The light didn’t improve which meant that the visitors won by 23 runs (D/L).
