@StaggerBreaths: reckon Middlesex need 30 overs to do the job, and am sure they will be afforded that
@StaggerBreaths: Middlesex are 618 and counting. Sure it will 714 by end of today. Durham also lost loads
@StaggerBreaths: and yeah, tomorrow our best bet. Players and umps here genuinely seem to believe we can get on today though
Durham v Nottinghamshire 107-2
We are playing at Trent Bridge where, on the eve of flaming June, the floodlights are shining bright against a uniformly grey sky. Rain is forecast for this afternoon but, even if there is not a full day's play, a result need not necessarily be seen as impossible. Durham won here in 2013 by scoring 182 in barely 20 overs. Last year, Notts won by bowling Durham out for 162 in 40 overs. A wicket has already fallen, the manner of which adds further weight to the all-is-not-lost theory. Putting his back into an intended bouncer, Graham Onions dismissed Greg Smith leg before with a ball that hit him below the knee as the unlucky batsman shaped to pull it. Notts are 194 in front with 92 overs left in the match.
