Durham and world class cricket: perfect together
Britain's national pastime arrived in the county of Durham sometimes during the 1700s although the first official entry of a Durham County team traces back to 1876. Six years later the Durham county cricket club was formed and the team would record its maiden victory against Northumberland County at Ashbrook Ground, Sunderland in the Minor County league where it would establish itself as a team of reckoning by amassing a record string of sixty-five victories during the late1970s to early 1980s. Durham County cricket club joins Hampshire County Cricket Club, Somerset County Cricket Club and Glamorgan County Cricket Club as other county cricket clubs in the UK. In 1992, Durham would see its club promoted to join the ranks of first-class cricket counties in England and Wales with an effort to reach inclusion to vie for the County Championship which it finally secured in 2006. Although the team would have mixed success during those early years, it wrote a significant chapter in its history with a memorable contest against Yorkshire County during the 2006 championship season courtesy of a record partnership stand of 315 runs between club legends Dale Benkenstein and Ottis Gibson to save the day.
