Cricket. England v Australia at Durham, Day 1

I thought Australia should have won the cricket match at Old Trafford, now another poor start by England, what will they do to save this one!!

Autograph signings are taking place over the next few days and we expect a good collection of cricket memorabilia, signed cricket bats, team sheets and some signed scorecards as well as the usual tour collectables.

Chester Le Street home to Durham CC has this summer been the venue for three relatively low scoring County matches but I could never have imagined the home team ending day 1 on 238/9, this could be what the tourists need for a 2/2 Ashes series result, it is some consolation to look back to England’s 1st innings at Trent Bridge where they were all out for 215 and went on to win the match by 14 runs courtesy of Ian Bell (109) and Anderson (5/73) in the 2nd innings, not forgetting low order wickets from Swann, Broad and Root.

England need to maintain their record at Durham where they have won all four Tests in recent years defeating Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and the West Indies, though that should not be compared to an Ashes Series.

Lets hope that Jimmy Anderson and Tim Bresnan can capitalise on their 28 stand tomorrow morning.

Sports Autographs and memorabilia will be available from this match early next week.
