The speed at which a fielding team gets through the innings is overrated.
So it's official, Durham have won the County Championship. Deserved for me, had a gun bowling attack all year round and good leadership from Collingwood.

Probably the worst batting line up ever to win the champs. And that's coming from someone who wanted them to win.
Yea Collingwood has been an amazing captain really, his record with Durham is absolutely incredible, on the way out of Division 1 and then he took over and it's something like 14 wins in 21 games. And he's still the only one to lead England to a global international trophy. Not just the success but the way he has done it, he's taken hard decisions with senior players like Blackwell and given youth their chance. There's all the other issues with injuries, the heart attack of Cook, the financial problems. He's remained a class act throughout everything, a great role model for anyone to follow.
Hope Surrey win this contrived game. Would make next week a lot more interesting. Especially the Notts Somerset game next week - whoever loses could possibly go down if Surrey win(x2) or Derby win.

So Warwickshire need 281 to win after a funky declaration and forfeit.
Well done Durham on winning the title, expected them and Yorkshire to struggle this season and they are the top 2.
281 should be easy for a team with Warwickshire's batting line up. Correct me if i'm wrong, but should Warwickshire chase down 281 would that relegate Surrey?
Warwickshire don't need to win, a draw would send Surrey down. Looks like Chopra struck a hard bargain.
Having said that, it's 19 for 2 ...
