Durham 306 all out
Durham won the toss in this two day friendly, and elected to bat first on the opening day.
On a bright and sunny day at Merchant Taylor's School the visitors made a steady start and at lunch went in on 97 for 1.
After lunch the Middlesex bowlers started to dominate and with four wickets falling in the afternoon session, Durham had reached 210 for 5 at tea, with James Franklin picking up two wickets, and Harry Podmore, Ollie Rayner and Toby Roland-Jones one wicket apiece.
The evening session saw the ball continue to dominate the bat as Durham were dismissed for 306 to signal the end of the opening day's play. Franklin, Rayner and Helm each finished the innings with a brace of wickets apiece.
Day one offered a good run out for the Middlesex bowlers, whilst day two would see the Seaxes at the crease.
