|Durham 191-5 (31.3 overs, chasing a recalculated 190) beat Surrey 189-6 (44.5 overs) by five wickets|
Durham secured a five-wicket victory over Surrey at Chester-Le-Street in their final One-Day Cup group match.
Steven Davies's 56 and an unbeaten 43 from Aneesh Kapil helped the away side edge to 189-6 from 44.5 overs before rain brought their innings to a close.
Requiring 190 from 33 overs, Durham were reduced to 11-2 after losing Mark Stoneman and Callum MacLeod cheaply.
However, for a second successive match Paul Collingwood hit a six to hand Durham victory with nine balls left.
The 38-year-old had earlier taken an impressive 2-25 from his 10 overs as the home side, knowing only victory would keep them in hunt for a quarter-final spot in Group B, stopped Surrey from gaining any momentum in their innings,
A 69-run partnership between Azhar Mahmood (34) and Kapil was Surrey's only half-century stand of the innings.
Two wickets for Mahmood and a scalp each for George Edwards and Tillakaratne Dilshan gave the visitors hope of claiming their first victory of the competition but following the second rain break, Keaton Jennings (70) continued his innings to steer Durham back on track.
The 22-year-old South African shared a 116-run fifth-wicket partnership with Collingwood and reached his half-century with a four off Jack Winslade before being dismissed by the right-arm medium pacer 14 balls later.
|Surrey's dismal One-Day Cup run|
|Match one vs Glamorgan||Lost by three wickets|
|Match two vs Middlesex||Lost by six wickets|
|Match three vs Kent||Tied with Kent|
|Match four vs Sussex||Lost by 36 runs|
|Match five vs Nottinghamshire||No result|
|Match six vs Warwickshire||Lost by 111 runs (D/L)|
|Match seven vs Durham||Lost by five wickets (D/L)|
That left former England all-rounder Collingwood to hit the winning runs for the home side.
Victory moved Durham up to third place in the Group B table with nine points from their eight matches.
But with second-placed Warwickshire, fourth-placed Somerset and fifth-place Nottinghamshire yet to play their final group games, qualification for the quarter-finals is not yet confirmed.
The loss for Surrey confirmed them as the first side to be unable to qualify for the quarter-finals this season.
