And note the last line :)
Durham v Scotland

A packed house at Chester-le-Street witnessed a nail-biting win for Scotland on their National League debut, showing they can match the county professionals. Disciplined bowling was the key to their success, as all five bowlers - in typically Scottish fashion - were incredibly stingy. Majid Haq stood out from the pack with 4 for 36 from his nine overs of offspin, as none of the Durham bastmen passed fifty. With only 168 needed to record a famous win, Scotland made a bright start as Douglas Lockhart and Ryan Watson put on 75 for the first wicket. But as they neared the target, a few Scottish hearts, however brave, would have jumped when Durham's Dewald Pretorious struck twice in one over leaving Scotland on 132 for 5. But Colin Smith and Neil McRae kept their nerves to record a famous win with four balls remaining. Who needs Rahul Dravid?
