Match scorecard

Former England star Paul Collingwood scored a brilliant 132 as Durham cruised to a 54-run win over Northants in the One-Day Cup.

Opener Phil Mustard's 65 laid a solid platform and veteran Collingwood showed why he wants a new deal with 15 fours and two sixes in his 97-ball knock.

Chasing 313, Northants lost three wickets for one run early on, all to the bowling of Chris Rushworth (4-41).

And despite Richard Levi's defiant 87, they fell way short of the total.

Milestone for Collingwood
Paul Collingwood's match-winning century was the 39-year-old's highest one-day score, beating the 120 not out he hit for England v Australia in Melbourne in 2006-07.

Northants slipped to 34-4 and 84-5, but Levi led the recovery in a 125-run sixth-wicket stand with Ben Duckett (69).

But Levi's dismissal triggered another collapse, with the final five wickets falling for 50 runs.
