Durham have beaten Surrey by 142 runs in the Clydesdale Bank 40 after posting 298-9 with Phil Mustard making 143. Zander de Bruyn took 5-46 but Surrey were all out for 156 in the 30th over of their run chase with Jason Roy making 43.
Durham won the toss and decided to bat first and Mark Stoneman and Phil Mustard got them off to an excellent start. They put on 87 for the first wicket until Stoneman departed in the 14th over for 50 when he was caught and bowled by De Bruyn.
Ben Stokes joined Mustard and the scoreboard continued to tick round as Mustard began to click into gear. He moved to fifty from 45 deliveries and Stokes also began to find the boundary with regularity as the partnership moved past a hundred.
They took Durham into the 28th over when Stokes was stumped by Steven Davies off Murali Kartik for 45 to leave the scoreboard reading 206-2. Mustard though was continuing to play shots all around the ground and dominating the scoring.
Mustard was looking in prime form and despite losing Gordan Muchall (7) when he was run out by Gareth Batty the Durham left hander moved to a brilliant hundred from just 76 deliveries. His innings had included ten crisply struck boundaries and three enormous sixes.
Mustard continued to launch the ball to various parts of the North East until in the 32nd over he was caught by Rory Hamilton-Brown off the bowling of Jon Lewis for 143 to leave Durham 271-4.
The hosts looked odds on to post a total of over 300 but De Bruyn then dismissed Dale Benkenstein (12) and Gareth Breese (0) in the 38th over. Jade Dernbach then bowled Paul Collingwood (11) in the 39th over and De Bruyn bowled an excellent final over where he picked up the wickets of Scott Borthwick (3) and Mitchell Claydon (0).De Bruyn finished with figures of 5-46 and Durham had posted 298-9 off their 40 overs.
Surrey’s run chase did not start well when Hamilton-Brown was caught behind off Claydon for 8.And they found themselves 10 for 2 in the second over when Steven Davies was caught by Benkenstein off Rushworth for 1.
Roy had started aggressively and he was joined by Wilson and together they added 68 for the third wicket. Roy played some handsome shots and Wilson batted sensibly but he was dismissed by Rushworth for 27 and Surrey found themselves 78-3.
And that became 84-4 in the 12th over when Roy was caught behind off Mark Wood for 43. De Bruyn then departed for one and when Spriegel was bowled by Wood for 7, Surrey were in deep trouble at 93-6.
Burns and Batty combined to move the score onto 134 but Batty then departed for 16 and he was followed by Lewis (5) in the 27th over. Burns had played nicely but he was dismissed by Breese for 32 and when Dernbach fell to Borthwick for 10 Surrey were all out for 156 in the 30th over.
A disappointing end to a tough week for Surrey but they know they can still qualify for the semi finals of the competition with three games to go. They will now turn their attention to the start of the Championship game against Middlesex at the Kia Oval on Wednesday.
