Durham crash out

Have your say

Durham lost out to Hampshire in the semi-finals of the Clydesdale Bank 40 League when their match against at Chester-le-Street was washed out after seven overs with the visitors on 52 for one.

Rain prevented any play until 5pm, when it was announced that it would be 18 overs a side and Durham’s acting captain, Mark Stoneman, put Hampshire in.

Ben Stokes opened up with a wicket maiden, having Michael Carberry caught behind third ball by Michael Richardson, with regular wicketkeeper Phil Mustard patrolling the outfield.

Each of the next three overs, two of them bowled by Mitch Claydon, cost 10 runs then all-rounder Paul Coughlin conceded 15 in his one over of seam.

Durham handed debuts in the competition to Coughlin and off-spinner Ryan Pringle, who are both academy products from Sunderland.

The elegant driving of James Vince took him to 37, while left-hander Jimmy Adams was unbeaten on 14.
