    Onions has 63 @ 17.73 in the County Championship.

    200 and first batting point up for Durham. 250 and a win would confirm Durham as champions regardless of what happens elsewhere.

    Cheers for that, pretty mean average, He really does deserve to be back in the test team.

    Enjoy watching him bowl, hope to see him in Tests soon. I truly think he is one of England's top bowlers right now.
    The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.

    Thing is its a situation where wickets at urham are a bit like runs at Taunton the selectors don't really take them as been worth much.

    In place of who though? It's all well and good saying his county average says he should be there but there's a knack to getting county batsmen out which isn't the same as that of getting Test batsmen out, been a lot of bowlers over the years who've been in a similar position whereby they're great for a county side but when they have to bowl to better players they're innocuous. If everyone is fit then for me there's no place in the Test line up for him and I'd be wary of putting him ahead of some of the other reserve bowlers to be honest, clearly his stock has fallen since this time last year, and that for me might be based on what the selectors and management observed of him when he was with the squad in the winter.

    Yeah, fair points about Onions - no-one would deny he's had a terrific season, more wickets for him today, but even in the Ashes squad he's up against Rankin, Tremlett and maybe Woakes for the last quick bowler's place (assuming that Anderson, Broad, Finn and Bresnan do go). Unlucky player whose last experience of Test cricket may well turn out to be getting smashed round the park by Tino Best and Denesh Ramdin.

    Surprised to see no posts here today btw. Durham only four wickets away from the title, while Notts have a slender lead - so that should finish early tomorrow, weather permitting.

    Not a crunch match but 100s by Vince and Dawson putting the Leics bowlers on the rack at Leicester. Bit of a shock not to see Freckingham in the line-up, he's played every match only to miss the last. Normally he'd have his 1 for 100 by now.

    Seven out now at Chester-Le-Street - Borthwick getting Franks with the first ball of his spell.

    Notts 7 down now so Durham will be champions before lunch tomorrow. Lead only 24, need an Andre Adams special just to have something to bowl at.

    At the other end this defeat means Notts and Somerset who meet next week will be watching the Derbyshire match anxiously.

    Vince with his 4th ton and 1000 championship runs for the season as well, really good year and much needed after last season

    Notts all out now, Durham have 69 to chase - either take the extra half hour or wait for the weather to abate tomorrow.

    Surrey 386-5 have made nearly as many as they did in two innings at Taunton. Bowling Warks out twice in two rain-affected days looks a forlorn hope though.

    Typical northern bias from Cricinfo.

    Still marc will be glad to know that Warwickshire were the only away team to claim a batting point at Chester-le-Street this season. Almost makes up for Stokes being much better than Woakes doesn't it.
