Srinath strikes swiftly
Sunday 20 August 1995
Bottom-of-the-table Sussex looked on course for their first Championship win in three months at Eastbourne after Worcestershire, needing 424 to win, slipped to 152 for three by tea. But Philip Weston took command in the final session and was unbeaten on 111 as his side reached 247 for four by the close - needing 177more runs to notch up a remarkable win.
Durham never looked capable of scoring the 503 to win at Chester-le-Street after Somerset's Richard Harden scored his fourth century of the season and skipper Andy Hayhurst his first. And so it proved as Somerset's Andy Caddick, capping a remarkable comeback from injury, took his ninth and 10th wickets of the match. Only John Morris, with 50, showed any resistance for Durham, who were bowled out for 216 to lose by 286 runs.
