Michael Lumb made the highest score by a Nottinghamshire player in the Friends Life t20 to help his side to a eight-wicket win over Durham at Chester-le-Street.
Lumb fell just four runs short of a deserved century as the Outlaws made it four wins from four by chasing down 154 for four with 4.3 overs to spare.
Durham’s acting captain Mark Stoneman made his first Twenty20 half-century, but his innings was overshadowed by Lumb who hit 14 fours and three sixes in his imperious 53-ball stay.
Lumb would have been run out on 14 had Ben Stokes hit the stumps from cover, and on 72 he was dropped by Scott Borthwick when he appeared to be dazzled by the sun running in from deep cover.
Lumb took 30 balls to reach his half-century and was cantering towards three figures, driving Borthwick for his third six, when he went down the track and was stumped.
That was off the last ball of the 15th over when only eight were needed to win.
In the day’s other match, unbeaten Glamorgan kept their campaign in good shape when exposing Warwickshire‘s current frailty in cruising to an eight-wicket win with 14 deliveries to spare at Rugby School.
Australian Michael Hogan took three for 11 in his four overs and Mark Wallace quickly made nonsense of the home side’s struggle to 126 for eight by racing to an undefeated 69 from 52 balls.
Warwickshire are beginning to look a shadow of the unit who won the county championship last summer having won only two of their 16 completed games in all competitions this season.
