Selected commentaries on BBC Radio 5 live sports extra. Yorkshire say the Pakistan captain will play the final five qualifying NatWest T20 Blast fixtures, as well as any knockout games.

Skipper Tim Bresnan chipped in with 22 as his former England colleague Paul Collingwood returned figures of three for 32 for Durham.

Durham were once struggling to even reach the 100-run mark but recovered from 76-6 to make 128-7 thanks to Stuart Poynter's unbeaten 35.

Elsewhere, Worcestershire and Somerset both held their nerve to win high-scoring matches against Nottinghamshire and Hampshire respectively.

On a sluggish pitch, Yorkshire's 152 for eight looked more than a decent effort with a third-wicket stand of 66 between David Willey (44) and Shaun Marsh (36) at the heart of it.

The wily bowling of 41-year-old Collingwood saw the Jets in with a chance, but Rashid ripped through the middle order and the visitors were always well behind the run rate.

Worcestershire Rapids secured a first success in this season's Blast competition with a 13-run win against Notts Outlaws at Trent Bridge.

Notts were chasing a fourth consecutive T20 Blast win, having lost their first two matches.

However, Joe Clarke top-scored with 60, hitting seven fours and three sixes at the top of the innings as the Rapids went past 200.

Aussie John Hastings took 3-31 as Worcestershire defended a score of 8-208 against Notts, despite a 27-ball innings of 63 from England opener Alex Hales.

At Taunton, George Bailey managed just 6 as Hampshire fell 14 runs short in pursuit of Somerset's total of 9-204.

Jim Allenby contributed 37, while Gareth Berg claimed three for 35.
