Consecutive rain days confirm draw

Day Three

Result: Durham 2nd XI (1/0) drew with Warwickshire 2nd XI (348/6d; Rhodes 108, Pollock 74; Hussain 3/77)

Durham 2nd XI’s Championship fixture against Warwickshire is drawn after a second consecutive washout.

In much similar fashion to the First XI, no play was possible yesterday (Wednesday) or today, with persistent rain & more forecasted.

Durham now have five draws from their first five matches and are next in action against Yorkshire at Harrogate in a three-day game starting on Monday 17 June.

Day Two

Close, Day Two: Durham 2nd XI (1/0) trail Warwickshire 2nd XI (348/6d; Rhodes 108, Pollock 74; Hussain 3/77) by 347 runs

No play was possible on Day Two of Durham’s 2nd XI Championship match against Warwickshire at Burnopfield.

Overnight rain & persistent precipitation during the morning left the umpires with no decision but to abandon the day shortly after lunch.

Both sides will try again tomorrow but with the forecast much the same, it looks as though the match will finish in a draw.

Durham closed on 1/0 after two overs on the first day after Warwickshire declared on 348/6.

Day One

Close, Day One: Durham 2nd XI (1/0) trail Warwickshire 2nd XI (348/6d; Rhodes 108, Pollock 74; Hussain 3/77) by 347 runs

Left-arm spinner Faizan Hussain took three wickets but Warwickshire finished on top after Day One of the Second XI Championship match at Burnopfield.

Will Rhodes’ century led the visitors to a total of 348/6, declaring to allow Durham to face two overs before the close.

Hussain was the pick of the bowlers, picking up Rhodes’ wicket en route to figures of 3/77.

George Harding was economical in picking up 2/79 off 24 overs while James Weighell also picked up a wicket.

The forecast for the remaining two days mean chances of further play look slim. Durham currently sit fourth in the table with four draws from four matches.
