After the interval Middlesex got their second innings off to a strong start with Higgins and Stirling reaching a partnership of 134 before the latter was caught by Barlow off the bowling of van den Bergh.

Scott then joined Higgins at the crease, but the pair were only able to add another 18 runs before Higgins was caught by Barlow off the bowling of Jacks, with Middlesex on 152/2.

That left Scott and White at the crease before the match was brought to a halt with Middlesex on 190/2.



After lunch Surrey got off to a tricky start, losing Ratnasabapathy who was caught by Podmore off the bowling of Patel for 27. However, Surrey were able to add another 44 runs before the fall of their next wicket, van den Bergh, caught by Scott off the bowling of Patel.

Surrey were able to keep the scoreboard ticking, and despite Walallawita and Sowter picking up a wicket apiece, they declared on 361 to set up what promises to be an intriguing second innings after the interval.



After a disappointing day at the office yesterday Middlesex got off to a flyer with the ball, reducing Surrey from 168/1 to 179/4.

The first wicket of the day was Harinath, trapped in front by Podmore just 10 runs short of his century. He was soon joined in the pavilion by Jacks, with Podmore once again trapping the batsman, this time for a duck. The final wicket before the interval was Pope, who was caught by White off the bowling of Barber for 50.

However, despite the sluggish start Surrey were able to steady the innings and go into lunch at 244/4.



After the interval Surrey began their innings strongly as they reached 66 before the fall of their first wicket, R Patel caught by Stirling off the bowling of Higgins.

Pope then joined Harinath at the crease and Surrey were able to build in their positive start as the batsman struck up an unbeaten partnership of 96.

With Surrey on 168/1, Middlesex go into the final day's play with an 11 run lead and will be looking to get off to a blistering start with the ball when play resumes tomorrow.



After the interval Manuwelge was dismissed for 4, with Middlesex on 93/5 after being caught by Patel off the bowling of McKerr.

White joined Podmore at the crease and the pair put on 41 before Podmore fell, caught by Pope off the bowling of Atkinson.

Towards the tail-end of the innings White hit a useful 21 before being bowled by Atkinson, and the same bowler sent Sowter back to the pavilion shortly after. Patel was the penultimate wicket to fall, reaching 18 before being caught by Pope off the bowling of McKerr, before Atkinson claimed his 6th wicket of the innings, trapping Godsal in front for 2 and bowling Middlesex out for a total of 179.



After losing the toss and being put in to bat, Ryan Higgins and Paul Stirling put on 31 for the first wicket, before Higgins was bowled by Dunn for 8 runs.

George Scott joined Stirling in the middle and the pair had put on 30 for the second wicket before Scott was caught by Jacks off the bowling of Pillans.

Stirling fell soon after, caught by Patel off the bowling of Atkinson for 35, and he was joined back in the Pavilion by Tom Lace, who came and went for 10, with Atkinson again picking up the wicket.

Podmore and Manuwelge saw it through till lunch, with the pair going in to the break on 5* and 2* respectively and the Middlesex score on 91/4.
