Jonny Bushnell hit a magnificent, unbeaten 93 to lead Durham Under-15s to a 55-run success against Scotland in the ECB County Cup yesterday.
Victory saw Durham move four points clear in Group 1B, albeit having played more games than their rivals.
Bushnell hit six fours and a six in his 85-ball stay, backed by 39 from Jonathan Pears, who had four boundaries. Openers Patrick Cooper (28) and Adam Khan (27), plus Sam North (23) also made an impact in Durham’s 221-5.
Darryl Sinclair’s unbeaten 76 was the high spot for Scotland, who slumped to 4-2 before rallying to make 166 all out. North grabbed 3-25 and Matthew Oswell took 2-24.
