Reigning Champions Northamptonshire were knocked out of the NatWest T20 Blast after their final North Group match against Durham was abandoned after heavy rain at Wantage Road.

Northants had to win the game to have any chance of reaching the top four but rain arrived at the end of the first innings and did not relent, ending any chance of Northants reaching the quarter-finals.

Had rain not arrived, Northants would have faced a very stiff chase after Durham made 208 for 3 – their fourth-highest T20 total and highest against Northamptonshire.

Graham Clark was the chief aggressor with 71 in just 37 balls. He struck four boundaries from the fifth over bowled by Richard Gleeson to provide some momentum in the Powerplay. A drive over mid-off and a flick over short fine-leg saw 58 runs come from the first six overs, for the run-out of Keaton Jennings for just 3.

Clark stepped away to slap Josh Cobb past extra-cover and slog-swept the left-arm spin of Graeme White into the gardens on the Wantage Road. His second six was sent over midwicket as he passed fifty in 26 balls as Northants again struggled with the ball. The rain prevented their batsmen from recovering the game.
