Poynter races to Day Two ton

Day Three

Result: Durham 2nd XI (388/6; Poynter 102*, Clark 74, Pringle 59) drew with Yorkshire 2nd XI

Heavy overnight rain has seen Day Three of the Seconds’ Championship clash at Yorkshire abandoned without a ball bowled.

Durham made good progress on the second day, reaching 388/6 via a quickfire century from Stuart Poynter.

But further rain left the ground in an unplayable state & the decision was made early on Wednesday (19 June) to call the day off.

It leaves Durham with yet another draw, their sixth from six matches, but within touching distance of Nottinghamshire at the top.

Their immediate attentions turn to Friday & a Trophy semi-final against Somerset at Taunton Vale.

Day Two

Close, Day Two: Durham 2nd XI (388/6; Poynter 102*, Clark 74, Pringle 59) vs Yorkshire 2nd XI

Stuart Poynter’s 103rd-over blitz took him to an unbeaten century as Durham’s Second XI racked up 388 on the second day of the Second XI Championship match against Yorkshire.

Poynter took 28 off the penultimate over of the day to go to a rapid 89-ball century, putting his side within touching distance of maximum batting points.

The Ireland international took leg-spinner Josh Poysden for three maximums, two fours & a two as he ended the day unbeaten on 102.

It concluded a good day for Durham’s batsmen as Graham Clark & Ryan Pringle also registered half-centuries following a Day One washout.

Pringle & Michael Jones, who have both opened in the Specsavers County Championship during recent weeks, put on 97 for the first wicket before the latter was trapped LBW for 45.

Clark & Gareth Harte enjoyed a 90-run stand for the fourth wicket before Poynter & Sol Bell consolidated for the sixth wicket before the wicketkeeper’s late onslaught took him to a deserved century.

Day One

Yorkshire 2nd XI vs Durham 2nd XI – No play on Day One

Day One of the Second XI’s Championship match against Yorkshire at Harrogate CC has been abandoned without a ball bowled.

Last week’s torrential rain left the ground in an unfit state for the play & the umpires made an early decision to abandon the day.

The final two days of the Championship match against Warwickshire last week were also washed out, meaning three consecutive days of cricket have now been lost to the elements.
