Match scorecard

Durham have the upper hand after 17 wickets fell at Chester-le-Street on the second day of their County Championship match with Warwickshire.

Despite forecasts suggesting little play, a full day's play took place, allowing Durham to carve a lead of 108.

Resuming at 228-5, the home side were bowled out for 277, Keith Barker and Chris Woakes taking four wickets each.

But home paceman Chris Rushworth took a career-best 5-46 as the Bears were shot out for 197, Durham closing on 28-2.


BBC Coventry & Warwickshire's Clive Eakin:

"The batting collapse that many Warwickshire observers feared was around the corner finally happened and no-one was able to rescue the innings.

"The visitors will reflect on a number of loose shots which contributed to their downfall and there has to be concern about the inconsistency of the Bears top order.

"That said, there is still life in this match as far as Warwickshire are concerned, although it's going to need something special in the second innings to turn it around."
