Match Notes

  • Durham seal the title in style

    Durham set the seal on their retention of the County Championship with an overwhelming victory by an innings and 52 runs over their nearest challengers, Nottinghamshire

  • Durham secure the Championship

    At 2.15 p.m., Ali Brown pushed outside the off stump and edged a straight-forward catch to the wicketkeeper Phil Mustard

  • Record-breaking Durham close in

    Only an impossible amount of freakish cricket could possibly keep Durham from retaining the County Championship this year

  • Di Venuto double brings title closer

    For Durham, it was a day where they moved inextricably towards the retaining the main prize. Their opening batsmen, led by Michael Di Venuto's outstanding double century, added 314 and put the Nottinghamshire bowlers to the sword
