Pro for a Day Plays Best

The winner of Durham County Cricket Club's Pro for a Day competition, Alastair Gibson, got the chance to play against some of the best cricketers in the world when he played in the Durham team against Lashings on Wednesday.

Alastair got the chance to bowl to Stuart Carlisle, Sir Viv Richards, Richie Richardson, Franklyn Rose and Chris Harris, even taking a wicket. He then had to face the bowling of Grant Flower, Mohammed Akram and Chris Harris and scored a respectable 3 not out when rain stopped play.

For Alastair the day really was a dream come true. He said: "The whole day was absolutely fantastic. Everyone made me feel really welcome and the team were great."

He added that there were a few best moments of the day, saying, "I think the best part of the day had to be bowling at a great legend like Sir Viv Richards. But it was a great feeling walking off the pitch at the end of play in distinguished company knowing I hadn't made a complete fool of myself!"
