Durham won the toss and elected to bat first and Matthew Waite struck with the first ball of the second over to dismiss Jones caught and bowled. Ben Cliff bowled Clarke in the next over and Durham were 18-2. However Coughlin made 27 from only 13 balls but he was caught at long on by trialist, Nick Keast from the bowling of another trialist, Hishaam Khan. Another wicket four balls later reduced them to 54-4 and Keast had his first wicket.
There followed a partnership of 62 in 47 balls between Crawley and Mackintosh ended only when Keast had the latter caught at deep square by Will Luxton. One further wicket fell (Crawshaw caught at long on by Waite from the bowling of Jack Shutt) but Crawley made 38 from his last 19 balls to finish 62 not out and Durham posted 162.
Harry Allinson was bowled in the second over but Waite joined Luxton and they took the total to 52 when Waite was caught behind for 22 from 16 balls. Luxton completed his second half century of the week from 34 balls but was lbw for 55 (37 balls 7×4;2×6) – 103-3. Three further wickets fell quickly and Yorkshire were reduced to 115-6 needing 48 31 deliveries. Wharton made 17 from 15 and Vagadia 11 from 12 but the final over arrived with 22 required. A wicket fell but a combination of wides and no balls resulted in 6 being required from the final delivery to tie the game (no super over). Khan duly dispatched over deep mid wicket and a tie resulted.
Batting first Yorkshire made 165-6, Wharton 24 from 15, Waite 34 from 26, Yash Vagadia 32 from 28 and Harry Allinson 31 not out.

Khan struck twice and Keast once to reduce them to 116-4 however Mackintosh made 40 from only 19 deliveries to secure their victory from the first ball of the final over.
