Derbyshire launched their Twenty20 campaign with an impressive 59-run win against Durham at Chester-le-Street. For Derbyshire Chris Rogers and GT Park clubbed brutal fifties and then with the ageless Stuart Law chipping in with 42 from 25 balls Derbyshire posted a daunting 175 for 6.
In reply Tom Lungley struck twice to leave the Durham innings in disarray. Phil Mustard and Coetzer stitched together 49 runs for the fifth wicket but after Coetzer was cleaned up by Lawson, it was downhill for Durham. Durham's last seven wickets fell for 45.
