Round seven of the Virtual County Championship between Durham and Glamorgan is being held by Cricket World and Dice Cricket to help the fans stay tuned to cricketing action from the comforts of their home amid the Covid-19 outbreak.

Durham would consider themselves fortunate that they were able to eke out 22 points from their last match against Leicestershire.

Durham's Mark Wood seems to have developed the habit of being at the crease during close chases and he was in another one as he joined Chris Rushworth at the crease. However, unlike most of his experiences at the international level which have not bore fruit, the duo were successful in adding 31 for the last wicket and taking the team over the line with a one-wicket victory.

Earlier, Alexander Lees struck a century in the first innings while Ned Eckersley scored half-centuries in both the innings. Ben Raine was good with the ball with a 5-wicket haul in the first essay while Ben Stokes contributed with 3 for 12 in the second one.

Durham are now placed at the fourth spot in division 2 of the virtual County Championship points table with two wins and three losses from five matches. The team is with 60 points and will compete against Glamorgan.

Glamorgan are right at the bottom with 50 points. The team has won two and lost three out of the five games and suffered a 149-run defeat the hands of Derbyshire in their last match.

Kiran Carlson and Chris Cooke scored centuries for them but to little avail. Marchant de Lange and Andrew Salter were among the wickets.

Let's have a look at the probable playing XI of both teams:

Durham - Gareth Harte, Scott Steel, Alexander Lees, Jack Burnham, Ben Stokes, Ned Eckersley, Liam Trevaskis, Ben Raine, Paul Coughlin, Mark Wood, Chris Rushworth

Glamorgan- Nick Selman, Charlie Humphrey, David Lloyd, Billy Root, Kiran Carlson, Chris Cooke, Craig Meschede, Andrew Salter, Marchant de Lange, Timm Van der Gugten, Michael Hogan
