Match Notes

  • Northern giants lose winning habit

    A month into the new season, Yorkshire and Durham, the two best sides in the County Championship last season, have won one match between them, and that against the side currently in last place

  • Durham prosper while Sanga nets

    Kumar Sangakkara's debut for Durham in his brief stay ahead of the Sri Lanka series was a second-ball duck but Yorkshire ran aground against hundreds from Mark Stoneman and Michael Richardson

  • Bairstow stirs England interest

    Jonny Bairstow's return to batting form in Yorkshire's mammoth score against Durham was timely with his wicketkeeping rival Matt Prior still trying to shake off an achilles complaint

  • Yorkshire end Riverside havoc

    Victory for Yorkshire at Chester-le-Street last season did not stop Durham ultimately winning the Championship but Andrew Gale will feel there is no harm in setting down a marker again
