BOWLINGOMRWECON0s4s6sWDNB
Joe Leach1855423.00907021
12.3 to WA Young, full and straight, right up to the shins as Young strides into trouble, thumped on the pad and up goes the finger!. 23/1
63.1 to AZ Lees, . 183/7
63.1 to AZ Lees, outside off, and an eager slash, looking for the century in a violent blow. But the keeper is standing up to the stumps and clings on well to send him on his way for 99! Cruel sport.... 183/7
Ed Barnard1984512.36967000
49.3 to SW Poynter, Back of a length, angled in, jams the edge of the bat and first slip pockets a looping chance. Worcestershire making the running now. 136/6
Charlie Morris1746123.587810000
15.4 to SG Borthwick, excellent sharp grab at third slip! Aggressive full length from Morris, angled across the left-hander, and kissing the edge of the bat, flies low and hard but Fell gets down well. 36/2
31.1 to DG Bedingham, outside off, fourth-stump line, nipping away off the seam on a full length as Bedingham pokes onto the front foot. A fizzing edge is scooped up well at first slip, stooping to his right. Another one bites the dust. 86/3
Josh Tongue19.233952.01922000
44.6 to JTA Burnham, Back of a length, skids on into the knee-roll as Burnham buckles on impact. That would be hitting the top of the stumps. Another one down. 127/4
46.2 to EJH Eckersley, Two in three balls for Tongue! This one gets big on Eckersley as he rises to defend, and he deflects it down into his stumps! Sharp pace and bounce. 131/5
66.1 to BA Raine, bowled round his legs! The left-handed Raine walks across to the off side, and his leg stump takes a tumble!. 198/8
80.6 to MA Wood, a wafty drive from Wood, and his middle peg has been plucked out! A pleasing sight from one fast bowler against another. 242/9
82.2 to C Rushworth, chops it onto his own stumps! Tongue completes a hugely deserved five-for, as Durham fall short of a batting point. Outside off, just back of a length, shaping in, caught in no-man's land. 246/10
