NOR vs DUR: Durham will host Northamptonshire in the opening game of England Domestic One Day Cup 2019. Both the teams have won the tournament in the past, but they have much work to do if they are to win it this year. Durham finished bottom of the division last year while Northamptonshire won only 2 matches in their last campaign.
Playing at home, Durham will be favourites and they will look to get off to a winning start under the newly appointed captain. Notably, Cameron Bancroft, an Australian international, will lead his team in this year’s Royal London One Day Cup.
