Notts canter after Durham stutter

Nottinghamshire secured a comfortable seven-wicket win after their bowlers combined to stifle Durham

Nottinghamshire 117 for 3 (Lumb 46) beat Durham 114 for 5 (Myburgh 45) by seven wickets
Scorecard
Nottinghamshire breezed to a seven-wicket victory over Durham in their Friends Life Twenty20 clash. Set a paltry 115 to win, the Outlaws reached their target with 3.4 overs to spare for their second win in the North Group. Their other game, against Derbyshire, was washed out on Friday.
Openers Alex Hales and Michael Lumb took them more than halfway there, putting on 62 for the first wicket before Hales came down the pitch to Scott Borthwick and was stumped when the legspinner beat the bat. Hales made a run-a-ball 30, Lumb 46 off 39 balls - the latter punching his bat in frustration when a Mitchell Claydon delivery slipped off the face of his bat and he was caught on the cover boundary.
But at 94 for 3 in the 14th over, the job was almost done. The batsman having crossed, Adam Voges drove the next ball for four and then pulled Liam Plunkett - one of seven Durham bowlers used - to the boundary to seal victory.
Durham were indebted to Johann Myburgh for making it to three figures after a dreadful start. The 31-year-old former Hampshire player joined on Thursday for the duration of the tournament. He top-scored for the Dynamos with 45 from 41 deliveries.
Durham only hit seven boundaries in their innings, and Myburgh contributed five of them. That included their only six, from a lovely pick-up off his pads off Harry Gurney. Myburgh put on 60 with Gordon Muchall for the fifth wicket as Durham recovered from 30 for 4.
The Nottinghamshire attack made good use of a sluggish pitch after winning the toss and bowing. Their most expensive bowler, Gurney, went for a respectable seven-an-over, taking 2 for 28. Phil Mustard pulled the game's first ball behind square for four but it would be the final delivery of the sixth over before there was another. Herschelle Gibbs, Mustard, Ben Stokes and Dale Benkenstein all picked out fielders perfectly.
Darren Pattinson did not have to move much either when Myburgh top-edged a pull to him on the long-on boundary. Muchall and Borthwick struggled to find the rope but ran well between the wickets, to extend the score to 114 for 5 in the last 20 balls.
