Durham secure confident win over Notts despite injuries

Ian Blackwell was dismissed early on on day four without adding to his overnight total when he was caught behind off Fletcher with the sixth ball of the day.

Durham were 332-6 as Mustard and Borthwick’s partnership reached the fifty mark – the pair batted Durham past the 350 mark and declared on 361-6, with a lead of 390, shortly after Mustard reached his fifty, from 91 deliveries and including four boundaries.

Durham lost Liam Plunkett from the attack after two overs after he was no longer able to bowl having turned his ankle in the warm up.  Mitchell Claydon was the first of the Durham attack to strike when Franks, who opened with Alex Hales, was out lbw for 8, leaving Nottinghamshire 31-1.

Ben Harmison picked up three wickets in four deliveries, Hales caught at second slip by Di Venuto for 36 followed by Voges, who was caught behind first ball and thirdly, Samit Patel who was trapped lbw for2, leaving Nottinghamshire 54-4

The visitors added thirty before Wagh became Blackwell’s first man when he was caught behind on 13.  Harmison picked up his fourth wicket in the next over – captain Chris Read caught by Gareth Breese in the slips without scoring.

Blackwell claimed a second wicket before tea, Ali Brown out lbw for 30 as Nottingham reached 130.  At the break they were 119-7, 272 behind Durham with 37 overs remaining in the final session.  Andre Adams became Claydon’s second victim of the game after he was caught by Blackwell at mid on for 9.

Luke Fletcher took Blackwell’s haul to three after he was caught by Gordon Muchall for 5 with Notts 170-9.  Scott Borthwick’s all round performance in the game was rewarded with the final wicket of the match when Mullaney was caught behind on 64, having scored his fifty from 45 balls, eight fours and a maximum.

Durham beat Nottinghamshire by 211 runs at Emirates Durham.
