CWC19 Trophy Tour kicks off at Raby Castle

Durham’s XI ran out winners in their match against a Raby Castle XI to celebrate the start of the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy’s tour of the North East.

The game, played under the 100-ball rules, saw Durham score 147 before Raby finished up on 83/7 in front of an excellent turnout including Club chairman, Sir Ian Botham.

Captained by Cameron Steel, Durham elected to bat first. Brydon Carse top-scored with 28 while Tom Dowson & ex-player Ash Thorpe both made an unbeaten 21.

Former Durham man Gary Pratt scored 22 in reply with the wickets shared around between Callum Thorp (3), Graham Clark (2), Matty Potts & Oli Gibson.

An excellent crowd of all ages were in attendance in the grounds of Raby Castle, with many enjoying pictures with the ICC Cricket World Cup Trophy.

The Trophy is in Durham tomorrow before moving on to Beamish Museum on Monday morning & finishing with a inter-club skills challenge at Emirates Riverside in the afternoon.
