Durham don't look long for this world and on the basis of what we have seen so far in their second innings this could be over pretty quickly this afternoon.

At lunch they are 21-4 and have lost Alex Lees and Cameron Steel for nine-ball ducks, while Sean Dickson and Gareth Harte have both gone for three. They are still 107 behind too.

They did start the innings in difficult conditions, with the lights on and a lot of moisture in the air, but they have also struggled to deal with the excellent bowling of Tom Bailey and Luke Wood. Bailey has taken 200 first-class wickets now as well.

But as things stand this looks like a meek surrender and we could be about to witness an innings defeat for the hosts.
