Chester-le-Street’s stalwart Chris Rushworth claimed his 500th first-class scalp by removing Tom Kohler-Cadmore, further enhancing his reputation as one of great seamers on the county circuit.

James Franklin’s men had managed to bounce back after being bowled out for 103 on the first day. Ben Coad (4-23) and Jordan Thompson (3-16) shared seven wickets to skittle the hosts. However, Durham responded by bowling out the White Rose for 199, although the visitors were still in command of the game with a 96-run first-innings lead.
