COLLY IN CONTROL; Durham Star Shows Vintage Form County Cricket

Article excerpt

PAUL Collingwood showed the form which made him a mainstay of the England one-day team for a decade as his innings of 73 helped Durham to an easy Clydesdale Bank 40 group win over Hampshire at the Rose Bowl.

Collingwood shared a stand of 142 with Michael Di Venuto, who made 70, as Durham reached an impressive 210 for five, despite rain reducing the match to 34 overs a side.

Hampshire, chasing a revived target of 216 under the Duckworth-Lewis method, never looked like managing it and could only muster a paltry 134 all out.That gave Durham victory by 81 runs and earned them their fifth win in eight group matches to keep alive hopes of reaching the semi-finals.

Hampshire's defeat was their fifth in seven matches. The turning point was the stand between Collingwood and Di Venuto in 20 overs with Collingwood hitting five fours and two sixes in his 63-ball innings.

Collingwood looked set for a century until he lifted Sean Ervine to mid-off where Liam Dawson clutched the catch.

There was late hitting by Gareth Breese to take Durham 200.

Hampshire needed a swift start and failed to get it once James Vince had been carelessly run out by a throw from the deep by Teessider Liam Plunkett.

Vince's opening partner Jimmy Adams was top scorer with 24 but when he was bowled by Breese's second ball, Hampshire fell away.

Breese and fellow spinners Scott Borthwick and Ian Blackwell found plenty of turn to help them and the wickets tumbled.

YORKSHIRE were able to name South African Jacques Rudolph in their side for the County Championship game against Lancashire at Headingley, which was due to start today, after his paperwork came through in time.
