Lancashire won by an innings and 31 runs

Tuesday 5 – Thursday 7 June 2018



  • Day 1

    Lancashire are firmly in control of their Second XI Championship clash at Durham after a five-wicket haul from Danny Lamb helped dismiss the hosts for just 128.

    The Red Rose finished the first day at Emirates Riverside ahead after they closed on 164-3.

    Chris Benbow’s side made an excellent start after they put Durham into bat, with Toby Lester taking three early wickets to leave hosts reeling at 10-3.

    The Durham middle order put up more fight than the top three, with Scott Steel eventually top scoring with 42 not out. But Lamb took the eye as Lancashire polished off the tail, claiming excellent figures of 5-37 from 10.3 overs while wicketkeeper Brooke Guest claimed four catches.

    The Lancashire top order fared better than their opposite numbers, with Calum Turner reaching 39 before falling to McBride. Lamb, appearing at number three, could not match his heroics with the ball and fell to Main for 13.

    But Guest, fresh from a match-winning 57 not out in the one-day game at the same venue yesterday, helped take Lancashire into the lead alongside Shiv Chanderpaul. The pair had put on an unbroken stand of 68 by the close, with the ‘keeper on 38 and the vastly-experienced West Indies left-hander 24 not out.

  • Day 2

    Lancashire need just four more wickets to beat Durham after dominating the second day of their Second XI Championship clash.

    The hosts closed on 101-6 after Lancashire piled up a first innings lead of 224, thanks to centuries from Brooke Guest and Shivnarine Chanderpaul.

    The pair resumed their overnight stand after the Red Rose had closed day one on 164-3, taking the score on to 352 before Brooke fell.

    The Lancashire wicketkeeper, fresh from his 57 not out in Monday’s one-day win at Emirates Riverside, made a superb 133 featuring 22 fours in a stay of just over five hours.

    Durham had nowhere to turn, and eventually tried nine bowlers as Guest and Chanderpaul piled up a stand of 256 for the fourth wicket.

    The Guyanese left-hander hit a six and 10 fours and had moved on to 111 when Guest finally fell to Main. Skipper Arron Lilley declared immediately in the hope of polishing Durham off in the same way as the first innings, with Danny Lamb taking 5-37 as the home side made just 128.

    It looked like Lancashire might claim victory a day early when they reduced Durham to 79-6, with Lilley and Toby Lester grabbing two wickets apiece, but Trevaskis and Read held on until the close.

    Durham still need another 124 to make Lancashire bat again, but with decent weather forecast for Thursday the 2017 champions are within touching distance of a second win of the season.

  • Day 3

    Lancashire took Durham’s last four wickets before lunch to wrap up a comfortable victory by an innings and 31 runs in the Second XI Championship.

    Durham still required another 124 to make Lancashire bat again when they resumed on 101-6 on Thursday morning at Emirates Riverside, and it looked like the Red Rose might make quick work of the tail when Justin Watson caught-and-bowled Read with only 18 added to the overnight score.

    But the final three wickets made Lancashire wait, adding another 74 runs, with Liam Trevaskis making 56 before Lancashire skipper Arron Lilley caught him off the bowling of Jack Morley.

    Whitehead and Main delayed the inevitable with a rapid last-wicket stand of 30, but the second win of the Championship campaign was claimed when Morley bowled Main to dismiss Durham for 193.

    The wickets were shared around, with Morley, Lilley, Toby Lester and Danny Lamb taking two apiece. The impressive win was built around Lamb’s haul of 5-37 in Durham’s first dig, and centuries from Brooke Guest and Shivnarine Chanderpaul in Lancs’ total of 352-4 declared.

    Next up for Chris Benbow’s side is the Roses clash with Yorkshire in the Championship, starting in Southport on 12 June.
