Namesake Alex Hughes then top scored with 43 not out from 36 deliveries, with two fours and a six, to keep the innings afloat.

Former Jamaica captain Gareth Breese took one for nine from two overs of off-spin.

In their turn at the crease, Durham were carried to victory by opener Phil Mustard with 54 and Ben Stokes who stroked an unbeaten 49, the pair sharing an unbroken third wicket stand worth 61 runs.
