Unbeaten centuries from Ben Slater and Lyndon James provided Nottinghamshire with a dominant platform against Durham on day two of their County Championship Division Two game at Chester-le-Street.

Slater was imperious from the start of the day to the close on 164 not out, reaching three figures for the first time in a year in first-class cricket.

James played an equally impressive knock to notch his maiden first-class hundred, with the two players sharing an unbroken stand of 216 for the fourth wicket, handing their side a lead of 141 runs to take into day three.

Matthew Potts claimed figures of 3-88 on a difficult day for the home side on a placid pitch.
