Having cursed and queried the batting order, and the scoring rate, once again what do I know ? Very little. Amazing, well played both teams and Durham and Collingwood for what seems a fair declaration. Well done Selman for whom it hasn`t all been plain sailing since he joined but hopefully he will kick on from this. Well done Swansea two great games this season

Well, I didn't see that coming. What a fantastic game of cricket.
Well done to Paul Collingwood for making a game of it and forfeiting the chance for a second century in the match.
Selman excellent, and we don't say that too often.
Almost speechless.

Day 4 end of match
Glamorgan 353 & 266/7 beat
Durham 342 & 276/7d by 3 wickets

Durham looking to get another 200 from 158/3 lost Clark good catch by Cooke from Hogan for 72...just a moment after Collingwood absorbed one. 177/4

Pringle made a good 41 to make it 258/5 just after Salter nearly levered a catch. He did just that to get Coughlin for 1 at 291/6 with the ball softening then Poynter for the 7th. Good spell. 276/7 at lunch. A sharp shower in the interval brought Collingwood to declare with himself unbeaten on 92 to set us 266 off 51 overs.

Run chase brought a slow start off some good bowling ..37/1 with Rudolph out at tea. Salter promoted to haymake against the harder ball. 50 up in the 21st. At 61/2 in came Donald...did really well to get 100 up in the 28th. 28 he made skied out to Cook. 104/3 to 108/4 when Lloyd was bowled.

Cometh the man cometh Colin Ingram..put on 72 with Selman including a 6 past the Cricketers pub and into the 22 yard area of the rugby field. Great knock 42. 181/5...in came Cooke to help get past 200 whilst Selman grew in confidence as the anchorman. 228/6 when Cooke perished in the deep for 31.

Bragg went at 241/7...Dai joined Selman who finished on 116 from 129 balls and batted like a millionaire at the end. 51st and last over 6 6 2....jubilant scenes.

Shame not too many in the ground on a Bank Holiday to be treated to the best of Paul Collingwood relinquishing the chance for a second 100 in the match and a sporting declaration chasing a win. Full credit to him and Durham who could have easily played seamers and gone off for the light. Cricket the overall winner .

Another famous win in Swansea..

Delighted for Hogan with the first win of the season as Captain ably assisted by so many others. Great knock by Salter in first innings to get a personal best and Selman hitting two sixes in the final over - unbelievable, to name just a few highlights. Let's hope this gives the team confidence to continue in this vein.

Also, immense credit to Collingwood who forfeited his hundred for the team and declared giving a chaseable total. Always liked him as a player and Captain.

Couldn't have happened at a better place - well done team and Swansea stalwarts for hosting this remarkable win.

Espn cricinfo report states Collingwood would have been first Durham player to have hit hundreds in both innings. No one would have begrudged him that and perhaps it will happen for him this summer.

Not sure if that stat excludes their minor county history or if he knew that. Fair play all round...both teams wanted to win . The paying public could have been shortchanged so the game itself was the winner today.

A great and unexpected win. The disruption on the last day probably helped in the end, but credit to Salter and Hogan for each taking a couple of wickets to keep it tight before lunch.

Selman again showed he has the ability. Now he just needs a little consistency. Good support from Ingram, Donald and Cooke too.
