White bowls Northants to victory

Graeme White took four wickets as Northamptonshire secured a comfortable 159-run over Durham MCCU on the third and final day of their clash at the Racecourse.

After the visitors declared on their overnight 149 for six to leave a victory target of 354, Durham MCCU were never in the running.

Number three Chaitanya Bishnoi tried his best to frustrate Northants, falling agonisingly one short of a century, but White led the way with figures of 4-42 from 18.3 overs to dismiss Durham MCCU for 194
