Bears claim vital victory over slumping Dynamos
The Warwickshire Bears claim a thrilling 5 wicket victory over the Durham Dynamos in a low scoring affair at the Emirates Durham ICG.

Jim Troughton (34) and Darren Maddy (20) set the Bears on their way before Rikki Clarke (29) smashed two sixes in the closing stages of the game.
After a promising start to the tournament the Dynamos slipped to their fifth straight defeat with only Albie Morkel offering any resistantís after the top order was blown away.
After coming to the crease with the home side 23-4; Morkel played a control innings to give the home side hope but with only support coming from Gareth Breese (30) the Dynamos were well short of a competitive total.
