Durham v Somerset: Day three close

Post  akaishuu on Tue Sep 28, 2010 4:48 pm

MICHAEL Di Venuto claimed 1,000 Championship runs for the season and gave Durham something to fight for on their final day of cricket for 2010.

The Tasmanian ended the third day of the game at home to Somerset needing 16 more for a third Championship century of the season. It is a small number by his lofty standards but at least he has reached the benchmark for class batsman. Not since 2000 has he failed to reach four figures in a Championship season he has been fit for (he missed the whole of 2004 through injury).

Just as importantly, the Tasmanian has given Durham the chance of ending a disappointing season with a victory. The champions are effectively 31-2 going into the final day. With rumours of a contrived result at Old Trafford, where Somerset's title rivals Nottinghamshire are in action (though up until now it has been more inaction), there could yet be a twist or a turn left in the title race.

Mark Stoneman somehow survived inside edging the first ball of the innings over his stumps to outscore his more celebrated opening partner, only to be trapped lbw by Ben Phillips for 16.

Gordon Muchall offered solid support in a stand worth 113 before one kept low from Peter Trego and bowled him for 33.

That Di Venuto is struggling for form was highlighted by the fact it took him until the fifth over to find the boundary. He survived an impassion appeal for caught behind on 16, though it was noticeable that bowler Charl Willoughby opted out of the amateur dramatics.

A pulled four brought up his 50 partnership with Muchall, then a single scampered from the next ball took him past 1,000. Di Venuto's 50 came off 73 balls with five fours.

Despite a few scares, Ben Harmison - promoted ahead of Dale Benkenstein, whose body is certainly ready for the season to end - survived until the close, making two not out in his team's 171-2.
