A fiery spell from giant seamer Charlie Shreck helped Nottinghamshire to a 52-run win over Durham in the Twenty20 Cup.
He was stung into action after Durham opener Gordon Muchall refused to walk for an edge to Mark Ealham at first slip, who claimed a low catch.
Shreck responded with three for 37 to rip the heart from the visitors' batting, before tight bowling from the Notts spinners strangled the life out of the middle order.
Earlier, Ealham's quick-fire 39 not out pushed Notts to a total of 175 for seven, with David Hussey also contributing 39.
Durham skipper Dale Benkenstein had inserted Notts and celebrated a wicket with the second ball, as Graeme Swann skied a catch to him off Callum Thorp's bowling.
Mick Lewis removed Stephen Fleming and Anurag Singh in his first over but Hussey and Will Smith moved on to 99 before Hussey attempted to hit his third straight six off off-spinner Gareth Breese, only to be caught on the boundary.
Chris Read and Smith quickly followed him but Ealham struck four fours and two sixes in the 17 balls he faced, with Samit Patel contributing nine before he was bowled.
Earlier Jimmy Maher pulled angry Shreck to midwicket and Phil Mustard edged to keeper Read off the next ball.
Benkenstein gave a return catch to Patel and Gary Pratt edged his first ball to Read. And, when Muchall pulled a Patel full toss to midwicket, any hopes vanished and the remaining wickets came in a rush.
