Durham will take on Essex in the 59th match of the Royal London Cup at Riverside Ground in Chester-Le-Street on Sunday.
Durham occupy the second spot in their group with seven points to their name. They arrive into the match after a phenomenal 87-run win over Lancashire in their last match.
Essex’s previous match against Gloucestershire turned out to be a thriller and they won by a narrow margin of two wickets. With four wins a loss, Essex occupy the top spot and this should be an interesting contest.
