Bairstow blasts T20 victory; T20 CRICKET.
JONNY Bairstow thrashed the first Twenty20 century at Chesterle-Street off only 58 balls as Yorkshire beat Durham by 49 runs in their NatWest T20 Blast clash.
In front of a crowd of 6,747 Bairstow hit six sixes and his second 50 came off 18 balls as the last eight overs produced 102 runs to take Yorkshire to 186-8. The target seemed to induce panic in Durham as four of the top six mustered one between them. It was left to the strapping Australian, John Hastings, to spare their blushes as he followed up his three for 20 by hammering a 25-ball half-century.
After hitting four sixes he was bowled by Ryan Sidebottom for 62 in the 19th over and Durham were all out for 137 with two balls unused.
