    Surprised to see the Aussies let that one get away allowing England to confirm their superiority winning the Ashes 3/0  and the 4th Test with a convincing 74 run victory at Chester Le Street

    The last few days has seen a number of Autograph Signings, Signed Cricket Bats and Memorabilia, and what a nice way to spend your spend watching exciting cricket especially the Ashes. Cant say enough about the delightful ground Durham and the hospitality of the club.

    Alastair Cook’s team were winners at Durham with a day to spare in the 4th test when Australia somehow lapsed into a sudden batting collapse while attempting to score a not unobtainable 299 runs for a first series win. Stuart Broad put the nail in the coffin for the tourists with some splendid bowling 5/71 in the 1st innings and 6/50 in the 2nd.

    It is a landmark for England as the last time they won 3 matches In a home series was 28 years ago

    The England 1st innings was disappointing with only one half century scored by Cook, with Nathan Lyon taking 4 important wickets for 42 runs, Ian Bell who has had a great series so far, was the hero of 2nd innings  scoring 113 runs before being bowled by Ryan Harris, a seriously good fast bowler, who ended the innings with 7 important wickets for 117 runs.

    The tourists will be all out to win their first match of the series at the Oval starting Wednesday 21st August, should be a match well worth attending!!

  • Cricket. England v Australia at Durham, Day 1

    Posted on August 10, 2013 by Selby

     

    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.
