Vikings. Pillage Durham in Front of Record Crowd

Article excerpt

EVEN in front of a record-breaking Riverside crowd, Durham failed to rise to the occasion and slipped to a costly 14-run defeat against rivals Yorkshire Vikings.

For the second time in two matches, once the openers were dismissed, Durham failed to keep the scoreboard moving amid brilliant bowling from Jack Shutt, who took career-best figures of 5-11.

The Vikings were struggling to up the ante in the closing stages and Rimmington notched his third wicket when Leaning picked out Harry Adair at backward point.
