Dynamos Power on with Challenge

Article excerpt

Durham Dynamos kept up their challenge for promotion in the totesport League with a 16-run win over Somerset Sabres under the Duckworth-Lewis system at Taunton.

Facing a rain-reduced target of 236 to win from 35 overs, the home side were 210 for nine off 33.2 when another downpour ended the game at a point when they needed to be on 226 to tie. Neil Killeen finished with 3-19.

Durham had posted 278 for four after winning the toss, Gary Pratt top-scoring with 67 not out and Nicky Peng, who later sustained a dislocated shoulder while fielding, contributing 62.

Yorkshire Phoenix remain top of division two after another comfortable win over Sussex Sharks at Arundel.

Opener Andrew Gale struck 46, the highest score of the match, to help keep the Tykes on course for promotion with a crushing eight-wicket win.
