Lancashire; 107 - 7(20 overs); OJ Newby 47no; LL Plunkett 2-27; ME Claydon 2-18
Report: A young inexperienced Lancashire side played 2 games at South Northumberland CC against two very strong Durham X1's. In the first game Durham played a mostly 1st X1 team including Herschelle Gibbs. Durham batted first and with Gibbs (41), Stokes (69) and Myburgh 48 no made 193 for the loss of 3 wickets. Adnan Ghaus with 1-24 from 4 overs, including the wicket of Gibbs was the best of the Lancashire attack.
In reply, Lancashire's batting struggled to score against the Durham attack and only Oliver Newby with 47no offered resistance in a disappointing 107 for 7.
Game 2 - Durham won by 17 runs
Teams: Lancashire; TE Bailey replaced W Chapples.
Durham; MD Stoneman; JG Myburgh; MJ Richardson; PB Muchall; SG Borthwick; BA Stokes; LL Plunkett; CD Thorp; RS Buckley; J Harrison; SJ Harmison.
Durham; 193 - 3 (20 overs); MD Stoneman 33; JG Myburgh 30; PB Muchall 61no; SG Borthwick 31no
Lancashire; 176-7 (20 overs); LN Bentley 63; J Clark 21; L Livingstone 46.
Report: In the second game Durham again batted first and as in the first game the experienced top order batting took the game away from Lancashire. Muchall (61no) and Borthwick (31no) with an unbroken partnership of 108 for the 4th wicket and including 59 from the last 3 overs being particularly punishing on the bowlers.
In reply Lancashire went for the bowling and a 3rd wicket stand of 95 between Louis Bentley ( 63) and Liam Livingstone(46) in only 46 balls gave Lancashire real hope. Their partnership included 7 sixes and 7 fours. When Livingstone was bowled with 4 overs remaining, wickets fell regularly in an effort to win the game. When Kerrigan was caught off the last ball of the game Lancashire were 17 runs short. Against two
very strong Durham sides this young side will have learnt a lot about 20/20 cricket.

Derbyshire 119-6 (19.4 overs); W Madsen 33; C Hughes 29; LA Procter 2-15
Report: Derbyshire played their 1st X1 in the first game against a mixed Lancashire team of 1st X1 and 2nd X1 players. In a disappointing innings of 116-9 from their 20 overs, it was Karl Brown (28) and Paul Horton (28) who showed their experience against a strong Derbyshire attack.
Derbyshire faired little better against a very competitive Lancashire fielding side and were indebted to opener Hughes(29) and a patient 33 from Madsen in passing the Lancashire total with only 2 balls remaining. Luke Procter was the best of the Lancashire bowlers with
2-15 from his 4 overs.
Game 2 - Lancashire won by 25 runs.

Derbyshire; 122-5 (20 overs); T Hamilton 35; M Lineker 49;G Park 27; LA Procter 3-20
Report: In the second match, Derbyshire fielded a completely different eleven. Lancashire batted first and Karl Brown with 64no from 40 balls led Lancashire to a competitive 147 after Andrea Agathangelou (35) had made a positive opening.
In reply the Derbyshire openers Lineker and Hamilton made a run a ball 74 before Hamilton was caught off the bowling of Gary Keedy for 34 with a superb catch on the boundary by Agathangelou. Derbyshire were then stangled by the Lancashire attack who made runs hard to find. Luke Procter with 3-20, Gary Keedy 1-17 and Tom Smith 1 for 20 all from their four overs making sure that the target became impossible. Derbyshire finished on 122-5, leaving Lancashire winners by 25 runs.

Game 1 - Lancashire won by 45 runs
Toss: Yorkshire won the toss and fielded.
Lancashire 134-9(20 overs); AP Agathangelou 25; TC Smith 35;SD Parry 23no.
Yorkshire 89a/o(15.4 overs) GT Griffiths 3-34; OJ Newby 2-15; NS Tahir 2-9; SD Parry 2-21
Report: A first wicket stand of 34 with Andrea Agathangelou (25 from 12 balls) and Tom Smith (35) put Lancashire on top in the early stages. Steady, rather than big hitting saw the home side make 134 from their 20 overs with Stephen Parry (23no from 15 balls) towards the end of the innings providing some impetus.
In reply Yorkshire failed to apply any pressure to the home attack and with an array of rash shots gave the home side some good catching practice. Gavin Griffiths (3-34); Oliver Newby (2-15) Naquash Tahir (2-9); Stephen Parry (2-21) all bowled well leaving Lancashire winners by 45 runs.
Game 2 - Lancashire won by 6 wickets (D/L)
Toss: Yorkshire won the toss and elected to bat.
Yorkshire 125-6 (17 overs) AZ Lees 50;AE Lilley 20
Lancashire 77-4 (7.2 overs) AL Davies 24no; J Clark 18; OJ Newby 15no
Report: Having elected to bat in the 2nd game the two Yorkshire openers Alex Lees (50) and Alex Lilley (20) gave their side a good start with 46 from the first 6 overs. Having reached the 109 in the 16th over for the loss of only 3 wickets Yorkshire were in position to mount an attack in the last 5 overs. Unfortunately rain intervened for 40 minutes and on resumption they had only 10 balls remaing in the innings. Arron Lilley dismissed Lees with the first ball and a further 2 wickets were lost leaving Yorkshire 125 for the loss of 6 wickets after 17 overs.
A further delay for rain, and some D/L calculations, left Lancashire needing 73 runs to win from 8 overs. Agathangelou was out to the 2nd ball of the innings, but Jordan Clark made 18 from 7 balls with 4 fours and Louis Bentley was spectaculaly caught and bowled by Richard Pyrah, before Alex Davies (24no) and Oliver Newby (15 no) saw Lancashire home with 4 balls remaining. Davies finishing the game with
4 and 6 off the first two balls of the last over.

Nottinghamshire in reply struggled against Griffiths and Tahir, and lost 2 wickets in the first 4 overs.

Jordan Clark (77no) and Louis Bentley (32) took the score to 64 in the 8th over. Liam Livingstone (28no) joined Clark and before the rain arrived these two had put on 90 for the 4th wicket by the end of the 17th over. Jordan Clark's innings included 6 sixes and 3 fours.
After a long interuption for rain, Notts were left with a revised D/L score of 83 from 8 overs to win the game. With Mullaney leading the way the Notts batters looked to have the game won with 10 required from the last over, especially when the first ball was hit for 6. A dot ball and two singles followed before White was caught and bowled by Clark leaving 2 required to win from the last ball. Wood and Hutton could only manage a single leaving the game tied.
