Durham 161-7 (Poynter 61 not, Henry 3-42)
Derbyshire 164-7 (Reece 66)
Derbyshire won by 3 wickets
My evening was spent on a delightful coastal walk in Berwick-on-Tweed, after a lovely meal at the local golf club. We finished, as Derbyshire rather stumbled across the line, as the only people (and dog!) on an otherwise deserted beach.
Every 'beep' of my phone saw it eagerly checked for a score update, the signal remarkably good for a remote area, though there were way too many irrelevant ones - in other words, on a night such as this, from the football updates at Pride Park.
Yet we got there, crossing the line with a fine cover drive from the skipper (thanks Twitter) after three wickets went down in ten balls. Once again Luis Reece played a key innings after Billy Godleman was given out to what looked like, from the pictures I was sent, a no ball. There were contributions down the line, none more valuable than that of Matt Henry, after the equation came down to fifty from five overs.
More than that I cannot really comment, so I do hope you all come on later tonight or tomorrow to share your thoughts on things.
Thank you to those who kept me updated as the evening went on, which was really appreciated.
The commentators still appear to know as much about Derbyshire as I do about Peruvian pottery dynasties. Rob Key apparently referring to Wayne Madsen's 'leg spin' and Nick Knight referring to our having 'found a good one in Luis Reece'. Yes we did, at Old Trafford...
Still, second in the league, two games to go and we have won more this season than in any previous T20 campaign.
The sea air, a Derbyshire win - and one for the Rams, because I do care really - means I will sleep well tonight.
Great stuff lads - and well done to Daryn Smit on his captaincy debut.
It's within touching distance now...
