Match scorecard

Nottinghamshire cruised to their second T20 win of the season with a seven-wicket win over Durham.

Durham made just 114-5 off their 20 overs, despite a 41-ball 45 from Johann Myburgh on his home debut.

Notts openers Michael Lumb and Alex Hales put on 62 before Hales (30) fell to Mitchell Claydon (1-20).

And despite Lumb's departure for 46, captain Adam Voges (21no) and Samit Patel (9no) saw the visitors home with almost four overs to spare.


BBC Radio Newcastle's Martin Emmerson:

A year ago Durham made 187 here as they crushed Notts by 33 runs and made them look ordinary. It was their highest score against them. Now 12 months on they posted their lowest score and it was grim.

It's nigh on impossible to defend 114 and thoughts about this being a difficult wicket were put to bed in no time by Notts openers Alex Hales and Michael Lumb, who made it all look so easy.
