Hogg fell in the 23rd, caught and bowled to Harry Rickard with Durham 169 for two. Ross Whitfield and Haydon Mustard took Durham to 206 before the former was out to Rickard too, for 41.

Durham then lost three wickets in quick succession with Mustard falling for 18 before Henry Hopkins and Max Jackson fell cheaply, Durham falling 224 for six. George Darwood and Kenzie Peakman put on 51 for the seventh wicket before Darwood fell to Flindall for 26.

Flindall took two more to claim four wickets, having Peakman caught for 30 before bowling Finlay Barlow for nine. Charlie Scorer scoring ended unbeaten on 17 to take Durham to 306 for nine from their 50 overs.

Durham took their first wicket in the 10th over with the score on 48, Hopkins prising the wicket of Haaris Syed for 25. Hogg took Durham’s second in the 13th with Yousaf Bin Naeem falling, Derbyshire 59 for two.

Derbyshire then produced the largest partnership of the game, worth 129 when George Darwood put it to an end, Vedant Semal caught on 75. Mason Bell took Durham’s fourth, Will Tarrant for 79 with the hosts on 200.

Bell took Seb Scott’s wicket in the 41st, with the hosts on 220, requiring 87 from 57 deliveries. Barlow bowled Harry Moore in the following over to press home Durham’s advantage.

Durham took wickets in three consecutive overs, as Bell had Flindall for one, the hosts 231 for seven. Bell then took two wickets in the 45th over to claim his five-fer with figures of 5/47, Tom Mousley and Flindall both falling victim.
