Aaliya top-scores as Durham Women escape with Derbyshire draw

Have your say

Durham’s opening Women’s County Championship clash with Derbyshire at Spondon was abandoned, saving the visitors from a probable crushing defeat.

Rain came before Derbyshire batted, but after they had dismissed Durham for 72 in 31.4 overs.

West Indian Aaliya Alleyne (30) and 26 extras averted a complete nightmare, with five ducks recorded.
