Yorkshire secure win at Emirates Durham

Yorkshire captain Andrew Gale reached fifty with his side needing 35, an appeal by Mitchell Claydon was denied by the umpires shortly after but Durham did pick up the wicket of the nightwatchman, Patterson, who was out lbw to Stephen Harmison for 3 after enduring some aggressive deliveries from the seamer the previous night.  

Durham managed to pick up another wicket in the session, when Gerard Brophy was caught by Ben Stokes off Harmison without scoring.  Rashid came to the crease to join Gale to knock off the remaining 24 runs to secure the win.

At the close of play captain Phil Mustard said, ““The last hour on day three and again in the morning I thought the guys came and showed some fire in the circumstances.

“What’s let us down again is the batting in the second innings. I still thought we had enough when we set them 300, though.   As soon as a bit of sun gets on this wicket it flattens out.

“We’ve still got four games left. If we look at when we won it at Kent a couple of years ago, we thought we had no chance with four games to go, but we did it. There’s still a lot of points to play for.

“If we can beat the teams in and around us, that gives us a good boost. We’ve just got to show the fight.”
