Following yesterday’s battering by the strong winds play resumed on time under much calmer conditions and blue sky.

Matthew Fisher struck in the third over of the day to have Liam Trevaskis caught behind. This brought Ryan Davies to the wicket and he played some expansive shots from the outset – his 50 came from 42 balls with 8 fours and a six and he progressed to his century from a further 33 balls striking five more fours and three further sixes.

He and Scott Steel added 134 for the fourth wicket in only 120 balls. Steel reached his 50 from 57 balls but on 66 he was caught behind from the bowling of Ed Barnes and at lunch Durham were 231-4 and the morning session had seen 174 runs from 29 overs for the loss of two wickets.

During the luncheon period the sunshine disappeared and temperatures dropped. In 13 overs post lunch Durham went from 231-4 to 295 all out. Davies was caught at deep mid wicket for an excellent 142 from 118 balls. There were two excellent catches at first slip by Jared Warner and three lbw decisions.

As we enforced the follow on the rain started to fall and shortly after the game was abandoned as a draw.

This is my final report of the season and I would like to take this opportunity to thank those who have taken the trouble to read them.
