I'm a Middlesex fan and the batting has been this bad for a good few years now.

Fraser has his pet players and the captain Eskinazi is barely 2nd XI standard. Most supporters thought he should have been released five years ago but Gus loves him.

Swap you Gus for Stewie?

Surrey manage to keep Leicester's first innings total under 400

Pie thrower Matt Dunn 0 for 86, the usual par return for a mediocre 'pace' bowler

Prince Phillip 16-04-2021 07:30 PM

I wonder if there's a team in world sport that offers less value per player salary than Surrey's four-day offering?

Olympian2 16-04-2021 11:20 PM

Nice end to the day from Foakes & Pope, though :p

ANDYEAGLE 17-04-2021 10:50 AM

Pope has averaged 50 for Surrey in 50 matches. A great achievement Surely the best English batsman behind Joe Root. Great partnership from the two.
Let's hope they can go on today as we saw from the first innings the tail is grim.

Prince Phillip 17-04-2021 10:57 AM

Surrey are awful and terrible. (I'm hoping another moan from me might elicit a 150 lead on 1st Inns :p)

Ruskin Old Boy 17-04-2021 01:34 PM

Delighted to see Pope continue his good form at the Oval. Before this innings he's averaged over 90, some achievement.

Is the match going to be put on hold due to the funeral? What better way to honour our landlord's dad than to knock up a 100 run lead and declare on the way in to watch?

Yeah, thereís a considerably extended tea break - I think itís between 2:50 & 4:10...

Olympian2 17-04-2021 03:52 PM

Ollie Pope 203*

Jamie Smith going at a fair lick too...

Mick 17-04-2021 06:24 PM

245- It's a shame in some ways, as this is an innings which should have been witnessed by a crowd.

Olympian2 17-04-2021 07:00 PM

672-8dec, almost 300 ahead

desperado 17-04-2021 08:56 PM

Well played Ollie Pope and Jamie Smith a 234 run partnership

Three of the Leicestershire bowlers conceded 100 runs or more. One of them has figures of 1 for 172 and I thought Matt Dunn was a pie thrower

Can you pls come on here tomorrow morning and tell us, The Wicket must be an absolute road and there is no chance of Surrey bowling them out, in a day:D

Always found county cricket a bit naff in that they don't have a day 5 when many matches could do with it. Oval best not be a road for the next one.

I agree, when test cricket is a five day game. True most test matches don't go five days, but 5 day county cricket would alter the mindset and reduce the draws in county cricket.

He is. 0-145 at >4/over in the match.....

Amazing comeback from Essex, showing why they are the best county side at the moment, though it helps when you’ve got Simon Harmer bowling on Day 4.
Ollie Robinson( Sussex version) took 13 wickets in their victory over Glamorgan. Apparently pretty rapid, so maybe there or thereabouts for the New Zealand tests.

Yeah, quite. They must always believe they can take 10 wickets on any given day.
