Match Notes

  • Sangakkara applies sleeper hold to Sussex

    Watching Kumar Sangakkara bat could never be described as a chore but his grit was of material value to Durham as they quietly applied the sleeper hold to Sussex for their fourth draw of the season.

  • Borthwick learns from the master

    This game seems destined to end in a draw, with more than 100 overs lost so far and Sussex requiring 18 wickets or some generous collusion in the time remaining

  • Onions injury blow adds to Durham's woes

    Durham's thin squad, which was already up against it in attempting to defend their Championship title, has been dealt a further blow by the news that Graham Onions will need to see a specialist about his back problem

  • Wright latest to send England reminder

    With England seeking a new start under Peter Moores it is the opportune time for players to push their name forward. Luke Wright was the latest to do so with a century against defending County Champions Durham
