Nottinghamshire vs Durham – North Group
Nottinghamshire won the toss and put Durham into bat first. Durham’s skipper Tom Latham was on fire in this game. He opened the innings for his side and went on to almost score a century. He remained unbeaten on 98 which came off 55 balls. His innings included eight boundaries and three sixes. Furthermore, his opening partner Graham Clark along with his provided a good start with 33 off 20 balls. However, the team after being at 99/1 in the 11th over was down to 109/4 within no time. But, Latham’s efforts were enough to take the team to 184 for the loss of 5 wickets in 20 overs. Harry Gurney picked two wickets in the innings.
Chasing this big total, Nottinghamshire got off to an amazing start. It was their game as long as the openers were in the middle. However, the Durham bowled pulled things back beautifully. The team got to 67 in just 5 overs but lost their way after that. They were down to 97/4 in the next five over. Furthermore, they kept losing wickets and the team was down to 120/7 in the 15th over. There wasn’t any way that they could get to the target from here. The team was bowled out for 150 in 18 overs. While Paul Collingwood picked 3 wickets, Imran Tahir, Nathan Rimmington and James Weighell picked 2 wickets each.
