Durham v Middlesex
« on: May 10, 2006, 13:13 »
Durham won the toss and decided to bat and are not doing at all bad either. Currently 90 for 1 (32.1 overs) with Lewis out on 21. Maher and Muchall batting as we speak, Maher currently on 52 runs.

With Middlesex having lost their opening two games of the season and being rock bottom in the table going into this one I feel a good result coming up for Durham this week. The weather is said to be great at the Riverside and with Muchall having reached a Century in both previous games leading up to this one and the side already off to a good beginning today it can't go wrong, surely.

Wish I was there...

Well, Muchall didn't get his Century today, out for 17, but Maher did and finished on 106 runs. Score at the close of play:

Durham 340 for 9 (104.0 overs)

Not quite as many runs as I thought they would be on at this stage but it'll do.

Alex mate keep these postings up.  If it were not for you I would rarely catch a match in play.  I seem to miss every game and have to back track the scores.  Just ask cat_lady, I get wind of a match and come home and take over the PC to get the score :)

Well the weather was correct mate.  In fact the weather over here for the past week has been beautiful.. Check out the weather section to see how good it has been.  (Boss do we stil have it?) Come on Boss the weather is great so let's show it!!  http://www.neforum2.co.uk/smf/index.php/board,32.0.html

Back to the cricket, yeah Muchall failed but the bloke has been solid, he will knock up a century in his next first innings. :) But just look at the runs after.  This is one Durham side that can pluck runs from anywhere.  This is the sort of team that can win championships. 

In the Durham of old, the whole side would have collapsed (Hmm, but then again they did against Lancs, but forget about that), especially after the Muchall fall.

Can you tell me when Maher fell as I can't get a ball by ball record so only going off sky sports centre?

Did he hold up the batting or were the later runs scored in an amazing middle/tail partnership?  Especially as seeing Onions is there on 20 n/o.

Maher was 6th out when score was 208. Mustard and Gibson then put on 88 for the next wicket.

Good stuff indeed. I've been frightfully busy all day and haven't had a single chance to follow the game today, nor the England game for that matter but looking at the scores now I can't help but think Durham will have it wrapped up maybe as early as tomorrow night ? That would be great.

Anyhoo, am gonna grab a cold beer and put my feet up a bit here now and watch what is left of the Danish Cup Final being played tonight. Esbjerg (some 18 kilometres from where I live) knocked out the holders and league Champions Br?ndby in the Semi Finals beating them 5-2 and are playing the leaders of our second best league in our national arena as we speak. When I came home about twenty odd mins ago the game had just finished goal less and now that the second half of extra time is about to kick-off it's still goal less. It's got penalty shoot-out written all over it and I know it's a horrible way to decide a Cup Final but I do luv a shoot-out myself... And if Esbjerg pulls it off, I'll be a happy chappy? 8)

People complain about penalties but can anyone think of a more entertaining way to end a footy match?

I thought not!! 

Go Alex, Go Alex, long live penners!!!!

So how did they get on?

And don't dare say they lost on penalties!!!  :(

Looks comfortable for Durham, knock up another 100 or so and that should see them through.

I have just looked at the Kent V Yorkshire game and looked at Yorkshires first innings.  The kent player must be kicking themselves for not having it wrapped up by now.  What a middle order stand by Yorkshire though!!

Well, I don't want to sound negative but a home win by 135 runs is somewhat less than I'd expected, really. But a win is a win is a win, I guess, and Durham are up to fifth in the table now and with a game in hand. Looking good.

There's just something about a penalty shoot-out that I find thrilling. But it's a sorry outcome to a Final, I know. Like today, the Hammers must be gutted but personally I thought it was brill? :oops:

And no, pumpkin, Esbjerg didn't lose on penalties yesterday. It was goal less right up till four mins from a possible shoot-out when their opponents scored what turned out to be the only goal of the Final here. The player who scored was so jubilant that he took off his shirt, waved it around wildly while running away screaming his joy out and ended up being booked for throwing his shirt into the stands. He was already on a yellow card in the game so twenty seconds after he scored the winner he was sent-off... So our Cup winners here this year are the current leaders of our second best division. I wonder when that last happened in England ? And I was really hoping Esbjerg would pull it off and win it and get a chance to play in the UEFA Cup come September. I'd already fantasised about them being drawn with an English side, maybe even NUFC if they go through via the Intertoto (which they are bound to as with the new rules a massive eleven teams will go through from there). I would have loved to take my good friend from Newton Aycliffe to see NUFC get beaten by Esbjerg when he visits me here in early September, how cool would that have been, eh... Ah well.
