Seconds record two more T20 wins

Durham’s Second XI secured another set of impressive T20 victories to keep them top of the North Group, beating MCCYCs twice at South Northumberland CC.

It extends their record to eight wins from ten matches, two points clear of Lancashire & six clear of Derbyshire – but both sides have games in hand.

Yesterday’s victories at South North CC were straightforward ones, the first by 58 runs & the second by five wickets with nearly four overs remaining.

The first match owed much to the brutal hitting of all-rounder James Weighell. Deployed at number four, Weighell smashed 84 off just 34 balls with no fewer than 16 boundaries.

Despite a quickfire start from Liam Trevaskis, Neil Killeen’s side were 39/3 before a 107-run partnership between Weighell & Ryan Davies turned the game in Durham’s favour.

Brydon Carse picked up where Weighell left off, smashing 50 off 29 balls to give the Seconds a formidable looking 225 off 20 overs.

Tall left-arm seamer Jack Campbell took the opening three wickets to half the Young Cricketers in their pursuit & despite some useful partnerships, there was to be no match-turning innings as Durham showed their class.

Campbell finished with 4/31 with the other wickets shared around as MCCYCs were bowled out for 167 in the 19th.

He repeated the four-wicket haul in the second match, taking 4/20 as the visitors were bowled out for 156.

Kashif Ali made 41 but again lacked meaningful support, with George Harding & Barry McCarthy contributing two wickets apiece.

It was Graham Clark’s turn to anchor the chase second time around, making 64 off 44 balls to all-but take the game away from the visitors.

Liam Trevaskis added 44 & Scott Steel 28 to secure the victory & make it two from two.
