Durham on the up after Wagh's fall sparks Notts collapse
Wednesday 20 August 2008
A spectacular Nottinghamshire Outlaws collapse at Trent Bridge last night handed Durham victory by six runs and lifted them off the bottom of the Pro40 First Division. After Shivnarine Chanderpaul had propelled the visitors to 179 for nine with two sixes and eight fours in a classy innings of 77, Nottinghamshire seemed destined to cruise past their rain-reduced target of 153 off 25 overs while Mark Wagh was at the crease. But the right-hander was forced to retire hurt with a shoulder injury after reaching 50 and needing 19 runs off the last 16 balls, Nottinghamshire imploded with six wickets falling for 12 runs.
Durham started their innings rapidly with Will Smith adding 60 with Chanderpaul for the second wicket in just 11 overs before the visitors produced the first collapse of the night, tumbling from 105 for 1 to 120 for 6.
South African Ashwell Prince had an undistinguished debut for the hosts, making one, while Steve Harmison, who recovered from conceding 11 runs from his opening over to continue his fine run of hostile form, took a couple of wickets, although three run outs did most to undermine the home side as they disintegrated from 134 for 3.
