Felix Organ and James Vince put on 53 to take Hampshire out of a mini-collapse to complete a draw with Durham which had been inescapable since Friday.

Matthew Potts – two for 19 – reminded England of his skill by removing Hampshire’s openers and added a small amount of jeopardy back into the match.

But Organ and Vince made it safe with risk-free blocking before bad light and rain brought about the inevitable result at 3.40pm.
