Three strikes for Killeen in final appearance

After the Dynamos lost the toss and were asked to field first,Chris Rushworth struck with the fourth delivery of the second over dismissing Kent skipper Rob Key for 0. Not to be outdone Mitchell Claydon sent Van Jaarsveld back to the pavilion having scored just one after he was caught in the slips by Gordon Muchall the following over.

Geraint Jones failed to add to the Kent total after he was caught behind off Rushworth leaving the visitor 17-3 after 5.2 overs.  Neil Killeen, in his final appearance for the Dynamos after announcing his retirement at the toss, claimed three quick wickets, Stevens caught behind for 6, Northeast caught by Muchall for 9 and Tredwell out lbw for 1, which saw Kent slump to 83-6 by the 25th over.

Fifty from Joe Denly, off 96 balls including six fours pushed the Spitfires past the hundred mark was eventually out lbw to Gareth Breese on 71.  A great catch from Mark Stoneman, running in from the boundary saw Rushworth pick up his third wicket, Adam Ball out for 5. 

Former Durham development player Paul Muchall was run out on 17 with 2.2 overs to spare and it was Breese who claimed the final wicket of the innings with five balls to spare when Bandara was caught by Harmison for 5.

Kent posted 144 in their innings and the Dynamos response didn’t start well when Mustard was bowled with the fifth delivery before a run had been added to the total.  Mark Stoneman and Ben Harmison put on 36 before the opener was bowled by Stevens for 18.

Paul Muchall claimed the wicket of his brother Gordon for 23 which left the Dynamos 54-3.  Ben Harmison’s innings was brought to an end by James Tredwell’s tenth delivery when he was caught by Van Jaarsveld for 34 bringing Will Smith to join Ian Blackwell in the middle with the Dynamos 79-4.

Blackwell added ten before he was out lbw to Tredwell for 10 which meant the Dynamos needed 65 from 120 deliveries with five wickets remaining.

Malinga Bandara claimed the scalp of Will Smith when he was caught by Darren Stevens on 7, leaving the Dynamos 88-6.  Bandara appealed for long enough to have Breese dismissed lbw for 13 leaving the Dynamos 78 balls to get the required 44 runs with Rushworth and Borthwick batting and Claydon and Killeen to come. 

Tredwell claimed his third wicket when he bowled Rushworth for 3, leaving the Dynamos 104-8 41 runs short of the target.  Borthwick was caught by the substitute fielder off Tredwell in the 31st over with the hosts total requiring 36 from 52 balls.

Durham were all out for 113 once Killeen was caught by Northeast off Van Jaarsveld for 6 and the visitors claiming the win.
