Durham 381 (Bedingham 121, Jones 78, Lees 52, Tongue 4-73) and 89 for 0 (Bancroft 46*, Jones 34*) beat Worcestershire 131 (D’Oliveira 39*, Carse 4-25, Potts 4-32) and 336 (Libby 126) 10 wickets

Worcestershire opener Jake Libby‘s third century of the summer was unable to prevent Durham from triumphing by 10 wickets on day three of the LV=Insurance County Championship match at New Road.

Libby struck 126 to take his run tally for the campaign to 776 – a figure only bettered by Durham batsman David Bedingham with 787. He received support throughout the day from the middle to lower order as Worcestershire totalled 336 all out after resuming on 99 for 3.

But the home side were only able to set a modest 87 target and Cameron Bancroft (46 not out) and Michael Jones (34 not out) saw them home without being parted in the final over of the day.
