Match abandoned due to rain at Derby

Durham skipper Phil Mustard won the toss and elected to field first, the opening pair put on 89 before Bosman was run out on 57 from a Liam Plunkett throw in Paul Collingwood’s first over.

A bowling change for the 13th over saw Dale Benkenstein come on for his first over in the t20 competition this season and strike with his second ball, Smith caught by Stokes for 11.

Durston was the second Falcons player to pass the fifty mark, off 38 balls.  Derbyshire were 141-3 when Peterson was caught by Mitchell Claydon off the bowling of Liam Plunkett for 10.

The sides completed the 19th over as the rain began to fall but as it fell more heavily they returned to the pavilion without completing the innings.  With the rain continuing to fall, the umpires called the game off at 5.20pm, with each side picking up a point.

The Dynamos welcomed England t20 captain Paul Collingwood back into the side for this game, we spoke to him at the close of play, “It’s always nice to come back and play for your county, we all know the international schedule is very hectic so there’s not a lot of opportunities to do so.

“With the rehabilitation of my shoulder, it’s been nice to start hitting a few balls this week and get a few overs under my belt. 

“I’ll always feel part of Durham, it’s where I’m from, it’s my roots, I love the place. I’m looking forward to playing at Emirates Durham on Monday night against Leicestershire Foxes, I don’t get too many opportunities to play for my county at home so it should be a good occasion tomorrow, I’m really excited.

“My family and friends are coming down and I hope I can put in a good performance. Over the last few years when I’ve come back to play for Durham I haven’t done too well so I’m looking to score a few runs tomorrow night.”

Tickets for Durham Dynamos v Leicestershire Foxes at Emirates Durham ICG on Monday (14 June, 6.10pm start). Gates open at 4.00pm and tickets are priced at £15 for adults and £6 for juniors.
