One Day Cup Report: Warwickshire at Durham

Bell was outstanding with fellow former England man Jonathan Trott, who also notched a hundred, as the two players shared a stand of 202 to grind down Durham’s total before Bell saw his side through to the victory. Will Smith and Michael Richardson both scored centuries for the home side, but their efforts were in vain as the Bears edged the contest.

The visitors won the toss and elected to field. Olly Stone and Keith Barker struck early to remove Paul Collingwood and Graham Clark, while Tom Latham also fell cheaply for 13.

Smith joined Richardson with the score at 54-3. Richardson found his rhythm, although before his first milestone of the day he was dropped by Sam Hain on 47.

Richardson made his half-century off 49 balls, maintaining his solid form in the 50-over game. Smith too relaxed into his innings, and the pair were able to put Warwickshire under pressure. They reached their 100-partnership off 102 balls before Smith brought up his fifty in style with a massive six off Stone.

Durham passed the 200-run mark with back-to-back boundaries from Richardson, who reached his second List A century. The 31-year-old made his highest 50-over score of 111 before he was dismissed, ending his partnership of 161 with Smith. Smith upped the ante to reach his hundred off 98 balls, including eight boundaries and a six. He fell in the final over for 119, although the home side were still able to post 299 from their 50 overs.

The Bears were put on the back foot in their reply as Ed Pollock and Sam Hain were dismissed within the opening three overs. However, Jonathan Trott and Ian Bell proved their quality to stabilise the innings.

Trott played with a fine tempo to his innings and was the first of the experienced pair to reach his half-century off 68 balls, and soon brought up the 100-partnership with Bell from 125 deliveries. Bell took slightly longer than his partner to score his fifty, getting over the mark in 74 deliveries, scoring five boundaries as the visitors continued to grind down the total.

The experience of both former England players took the game away from Durham. The two veterans displayed nous to knock the ball around the park and dispatch the ball to the boundary when necessary to keep the required rate down. Trott and Bell continued the imperious nature of their batting, working the ball around the ground, reaching the 200-partnership off 207 deliveries.

Trott was the first to three figures, calming stroking the ball down the ground to notch his 22nd List A century, although he lost his composure drilling a Collingwood delivery straight to Richardson. Bell remained focused and brought up his hundred from 108 balls. The wickets of Adam Hose and Tim Ambrose did not deter Bell as finished his flawless innings with a flurry of late boundaries to secure the vital victory.

Bears hope for more runs from newly-capped Hain

The Bears return to action after the frustration of Wednesday night’s washout against Northamptonshire at Edgbaston with a bit of a jinx to break up in the north-east.

Their last List A triumph at Durham was back in 2005 when a five-wicket victory was secured on the back of seam-bowling trio Heath Streak (6-0-13-3), Neil Carter (9-5-15-2) and Dougie Brown (9-4-18-2) bowling the home side out for 147. A fourth-wicket stand of 88 between Jim Troughton and Alex Loudon then saw the Bears to a comfortable win but in five tussles in the north-east since, Durham have upper hand, recording wins by 66 runs, five wickets (twice) and four wickets (twice).

(Warwickshire)…are the only team in the North Group to have suffered two washouts

This time round, the Bears make the long trip in good heart on the back of strong progress in the group so far, albeit rain-affected – they are the only team in the North Group to have suffered two washouts. Two wins from their remaining three group games (at Durham tomorrow then at home to Leicestershire on Sunday and Worcestershire next Thursday) would leave them well-placed to qualify.

The Bears will be hoping for more runs tomorrow from newly-capped batsman Sam Hain. The 22-year-old, who was awarded his county cap on Wednesday, is averaging 141 with the bat in the Royal London Cup this season. His last six List A innings stand at 144, 21, 54no, 108, 102no and 72 – the first three for England Lions v West Indies A in the Caribbean and the last three for Warwickshire this season.
