Durham set for qualification decider

James Franklin has named an unchanged 14-man squad as Durham face a win-or-bust Royal London One-Day Cup match at Emerald Headingley tomorrow (Monday 6 May).

Durham know that no other result other than a win will take them above Lancashire & into the One-Day Cup quarter-finals.

Third place would seal an away quarter-final, while second & first place are still up for grabs following the Grantham washout on Friday. See further down the page for a full list of qualification permutations.

But one thing is for certain; a point will not be enough to progress & so Franklin’s side must win at Headingley to qualify from the North Group.

Franklin has gone with the same 14 players named for the visit to Notts, with Mark Wood again in contention as he aims to prove his form & fitness ahead of the ICC Cricket World Cup, which starts at the end of this month.

Squad vs Yorkshire (6 May)

Cameron Bancroft (c, wk), Scott Steel, Alex Lees, Michael Richardson, Gareth Harte, Jack Burnham, Ned Eckersley, Liam Trevaskis, Brydon Carse, Matthew Potts, Ben Raine, Ryan Pringle, Matt Salisbury, Mark Wood

Qualification permutations

Durham can guarantee qualification from the Royal London One-Day Cup North Group by beating Yorkshire. A win overtakes the current third placed side, Lancashire, who completed their North Group with a defeat at Warwickshire yesterday.

James Franklin’s side could secure a second placed finish, and therefore a home quarter-final, by beating Yorkshire & hoping Worcestershire lose in the televised match at Derbyshire.

Durham could even top the group if the above scenario happens & Notts Outlaws also lose at Northants Steelbacks, but this would also require a significant net-run-rate swing.

A tie or no result would not be enough for Durham to qualify as both Worcestershire & Lancashire currently have five wins to Durham’s four, which is the first tie-breaker when teams are on equal points.

A live stream (hosted by Yorkshire), scorecard & in-play video highlights will be available via the Club’s match centre.
