Unchanged squad of 13 named for RL50 home opener against Gloucestershire

Durham head North tomorrow for their first home fixture in the Royal London One Day Cup when they take on Gloucestershire at Scarborough Cricket Club’s North Marine Road.

Durham will be looking for their third win of the competition tomorrow and Head Coach Alan Walker has named an unchanged squad of 13 for the 11am clash.

Going into the game at North Marine Road, Durham currently sit top of Group A with two wins and one no result, having picked up 5 points so far this campaign. Gloucestershire are in 8th place having lost their opening two games, which included a tight 11 run loss on Duckworth-lewis stern yesterday against Worcestershire at Bristol.

Durham have gone up against Gloucestershire 34 times in List A cricket, most recently playing Glos at the Bristol County Ground in 2015, where Durham slipped to a 71 run defeat on Duckworth-lewis stern. Only three of the current Durham squad in Scott Borthwick, Graham Clark and Chris Rushworth played in that game as Durham were bowled out for 214 in response to Gloucestershire’s 298.

The visitors are without five of their regular first team regulars in Benny Howell, Miles Hammond, Ryan Higgins, David Payne and Iain Cockbain who are all with the Hundred.

Squad vs Gloucestershire (29 July) 

Alex Lees, Graham Clark,Scott Borthwick*, Cameron Bancroft, David Bedingham, Sean Dickson, Ned Eckersley, Chris Rushworth, Liam Trevaskis, Luke Doneathy, Paul van Meekeren, Jack Campbell, Harry Crawshaw

Words from Luke Doneathy 

“It was a tense finish [against Middlesex], as soon as Duckworth-Lewis gets involved there are lots of different equations but the lads held their nerve well.

“We thought we’d left a few out there. We got a good start and then lost a few quick wickets but still managed to post what we felt was a defendable total. After the start we got we were probably looking at 320-340, something in that region.

“It’s nice for me, it’s always good to get a personal milestone and I’m very happy but being able to contribute to the team is why I’m here.

“We don’t panic if the other team get a partnership, we stuck with it and got those two wickets. They went from being about 20 ahead on Duckworth-Lewis to being about 20 behind in the space of two overs and that was massive.”
