11.40: Fifty for Ben Raine, from 110 balls with three fours, as Durham close in on victory. They are 242-8 requiring a further four runs.

11.20: Jordan Thompson has conceded two boundaries in an eventful first over after replacing George Hill.

First, Matthew Potts drove him straight down the ground, Thompson going down in agony and needing treatment – apparently for a shoulder injury – before recovering to finish the over.

Then Ben Raine clipped him for four off his pads.

It’s 234-8, and Durham need 12 more to win.

Durham, on 213-8, need 33 more runs to win and Yorkshire need two more wickets.

Ben Raine (32) and Matthew Potts (13) are the not out batsmen, their ninth-wicket stand worth 40.

Brydon Carse, the last man, was unable to bowl on day three due to a side strain but he will bat.

There is a new ball due in 10 overs’ time if it gets that far.
