Durham up against a fancied Lancashire side, pulling of not just a victory, but a dominant one with their complete and all-round performance. They did a fantastic job with the ball earlier restricting Lancashire to just 151, setting up the game quite nicely for them. Not a lot to chase and they got off to an absolutely cracking start. David Bedingham with his fiery hitting powering his way to a 39-ball 58 at the top. He took the bowlers to the cleaners smacking them all around as Durham accumulated 74 runs in the powerplay that pretty much killed the game.

A few wickets for Lancashire in the middle but it was nowhere close to enough given the total they were defending. Matthew Parkinson carrying his fine form picking a couple of wickets. They needed wickets at the top and some tidy bowling which wasn't the case. Not quite their day as they started off really well with the bat in the powerplay but failed to finish well and in the end, 151 was not going to be enough for them to play with, especially the way Bedingham came after them. 

Durham moving into the top-four with this win. They defeated Yorkshire first and now Lancashire in an even convincing fashion, that is going to give them immense confidence going ahead into the competition. They've played some wonderful cricket in this game. Well, that's it from us for the moment. This is Rishab and my partner Pratyush signing off. Stay tuned for more action and have a great night!
That's it, done and dusted, fitting end to a brilliant win for Durham this. Two very good wins for them as they storm into the top four. They have been the dominant side as they wrap up a one-sided contest. They move to third place in the North Group!

17.4 Steven Croft to Ned Eckersley, FOUR! ECKERSLEY TAKES HIS SIDE HOME INN SOME STYLE! Back of a length delivery outside off, Ned rocks back and merely punches this through the covers, the fielder in the deep put in a desperate dive but couldn't get near that one. Durham pull off an unlikely victory by 6 wickets (with 14 balls remaining).
17.3 Steven Croft to Ned Eckersley, full toss drifting down the leg side, Eckersley sweeps it to deep square leg, to pick up two more
17.2 Steven Croft to Ned Eckersley, good length delivery on the stumps, knocked back to the bowler
17.1 Steven Croft to Cameron Bancroft, back of a length delivery on the stumps, Bancroft hangs back to punch it down the ground, another single at long-on 
Sensible batting from Durham is all they need to wrap this up without further hiccups. Tidy over from Hartley. Another tight over for Lancashire. However, it's not going to affect the result of this game. Durham need just 6 runs more to seal the deal!

Something for Croft to smile there. Too little too late for Lancashire though as Durham are clearly in the driver's seat now. A good over from Croft, nice and tidy from him. Not going to help Lancs though!
