Footage: Rushworth’s 15 wickets in one day

Blog Opinion

Durham seamer Chris Rushworth had the day of his life on Wednesday, taking a massive 15 wickets on the day, nine in one innings and six in the next, as he single-handedly destroyed Northamptonshire.

Rushworth was only denied a 10-fer, only two others have been recorded in County cricket, in the first innings by Ben Stokes, who rather selfishly took a late wicket. Or was Simon Kerrigan, the catcher, the selfish one? We’d have dropped it.

The effort, against an already relegated Northants, stunned the Chester-le-Street crowd, as stumps flew and slip catches were taken. Northants were all out for 83 and 90, with the nine-fer the best County figures of the season.

Here are Rushworth’s 15 wickets, in just 18 overs, as well as his comments on the day.
