    innings Lancashire claimed a lead of 119 but County hit back by claiming the wickets of both openers and the team almost dismissed Ashwell Prince and Alviro Petersen in the 11 overs that remained The experienced duo saw the Red Rose county to stumps on 39 2 so they will start the final day 158 ahead with eight second innings wickets remaining Play was delayed until 12 15pm due to an extremely heavy burst of rain that arrived at 10 30am Tom Wells hit a boundary off Buck as Leicestershire recorded their first batting point but the all rounder fell lbw to Jarvis in the next over Clint McKay played in trademark aggressive fashion and struck three early fours including consecutive boundaries in the 47 th over Four leg byes in the next over took the extras to 53 it has been a prolific match for that column given there were 57 sundries in Lancashire s first innings A terrific straight drive from McKay brought him another boundary and the score was 240 7 when the players came off for a slightly early lunch because of another downpour There was a swift resumption after lunch which was taken at that point and both set batsmen fell in quick succession Cosgrove was trapped in front by Buck to end the 42 run stand before McKay 26 was caught behind by Alex Davies off Jarvis Rob Taylor 2 not out and Charlie Shreck took the score to 249 9 when another heavy shower arrived and play was not able to start again until 5 45pm There were meant to be 14 overs left but that was immediately eaten into as The innings was ended with the first ball of the restart Shreck 2 was lbw to Jarvis who completed his five for

    the morning made life difficult for the Leicestershire groundsmen but they did a great job to ensure play was able to start at 3 30pm Exactly half of the day s overs had been lost and the players headed out for one 48 over session Croft moved to his century from 151 balls with a 13 th four which was hooked down to long leg Kyle Jarvis hit a couple of fours one of which found its way through the slip cordon before Croft holed out to Rob Taylor at deep square leg in the 99 th over It was a well deserved wicket for Raine 20 4 5 42 1 Lancashire then made early inroads to put County on the back foot Angus Robson 5 struck an early boundary off Tom Bailey but he fell in the second over caught by Karl Brown at forward short leg off Kyle Jarvis second delivery In form duo Lewis Hill and Ned Eckersley took the score to 44 with some neat strokeplay but the latter was bowled by Bailey for 13 from one that skidded through from the Bennett End Hill struck four boundaries in his 25 including fine strokes through mid off and mid on but he gloved a jaffa in Jordan Clark s first over and wicket keeper Alex Davies completed the dismissal Neil Pinner 0 then edged in Nathan Buck s first over and Croft took a fine catch at second slip to leave County in real trouble on 78 4 Buck and Clark continued to get the ball to move about but Cosgrove and O Brien used all of their experience to negate the threat The keeper hit a cracking shot through mid off for four in the 23 rd over and Cosgrove twice struck Buck for boundaries

    and Nathan Buck 25 for the sixth and eighth wicket respectively as the visitors regrouped Leicestershire made one change to the side that lost narrowly at Surrey as Wells came in for Jigar Naik while Lancashire had a couple of enforced switches as Luis Reece injured and Peter Siddle Australia duty were unavailable Clint McKay and Shreck got plenty of shape in the opening ten overs but Horton and Karl Brown brought in to open the batting got through unscathed County kept persevering and McKay gained reward when Brown 21 nicked through to Niall O Brien Raine then came on from the Pavilion End in place of Shreck and caused all sorts of problems with his movement The all rounder thought he had landed a second wicket for the team when finding Horton s edge in the 18 th over but Mark Cosgrove couldn t hold on at first slip Leicestershire kept asking questions and the second wicket arrived when Wells found the edge of Alviro Petersen O Brien completing the dismissal with the score on 63 Runs were generally scarce although Horton doubled his boundary tally in the 25 th over with a brace of off side drives The luckless Raine saw a Prince edge drop just short of Neil Pinner in the cordon in the 26 th over before seeing the former South Africa international put down by Rob Taylor towards the end of that over and at the start of his next offering Raine finished with superb session figures of 8 3 11 0 as Lancashire went in on 91 2 Runs arrived more freely after the luncheon interval as the duo extended their alliance beyond 50 Horton hit two fours in three balls in the third over after lunch and then moved to 50 from 123 balls with his seventh boundary a nudge down to third man Horton picked up another five fours after he reached 50 including a couple of well timed off drives but he perished playing a similar stroke as Wells had the batsman caught at the wicket It ended the 93 run stand with Prince 29 from 81 who was then out leg before to Shreck That paired Croft and Davies at the wicket who shared the matchwinning stand on Friday but the latter also fell with the score on 156 after edging Shreck to O Brien Leicestershire now had their tails up but Croft and Clark battled hard before the latter went on the counter attack He struck 38 in the space of 16 deliveries including eight boundaries and recorded a batting point and the 50 partnership in the process The visitors went to tea on 227 5 with Croft having made 26 and Clark on 42 but the vital partnership was ended with the second ball of the final session having yielded 73 Clark collected a two off the first ball of Wells over but then was tempted into a drive and the consistent O Brien claimed his fifth catch

    McKay Rob Taylor and Jigar Naik At tea when County were 470 for eight the stubborn visitors looked to have done enough to keep the bowlers at bay and collect ten points from this hard fought contest Surrey had other ideas and after taking the final two wickets in the space of five deliveries to end a resilient innings that spanned 161 1 overs they hunted down a target of 216 from 24 overs Not only did Surrey get home they did so with 16 deliveries to spare The win was set up by Jason Roy and Steven Davies the NatWest T20 Blast opening pair who treated the run chase like they were facing a white ball on a Friday night Davies reached a superb hundred off only 57 balls finishing with 115 not out from 69 balls with four sixes and eleven fours and Roy flayed 67 from 39 balls as they shared an astonishing 145 in just 67 balls Earlier in the day O Brien more than doubled his 38 and although he lost Raine 33 from 79 balls in the 11 th over of the morning leg before to Surrey s key man Zafir Ansari he immediately found another stubborn partner in McKay Raine s knock had helped O Brien to add 72 for the sixth wicket and 51 more runs came in alliance with McKay before the Ireland international drove Tom Curran to Rory Burns at short extra cover McKay batted almost two hours for 41 and although he was another lbw victim of Ansari s it seemed as if Taylor and Naik would guide Leicestershire to safety as they added 62 in 28 overs of defiance But Naik who had batted for 102 minutes for 30 was caught at slip from the off spin of Gareth Batty and then five balls later Taylor edged Ansari to keeper Gary Wilson after scoring 42 from 119 balls in two and a half hours The damage had been done by Surrey s spin duo who bore the brunt of the bowling responsibilities in the absence through injury of fast bowler Chris Tremlett Ansari took a career best 6 for 152 from 51 1 overs and Batty claimed 2 for 100 from 46 overs The excellent Oval batting pitch which had so frustrated Surrey for virtually five sessions in the second innings now gave the visiting bowlers little chance of containing Surrey s destructive batting line up especially with a short boundary on one side of the ground It was Kevin Pietersen s epic first innings 355 not out that had put Surrey into a winning position at the halfway mark but his strokeplay was not needed second time around as Roy and Davies launched themselves at the Leicestershire bowling Sixes and fours flew from their flashing blades and Roy and Davies brought up Surrey s 50 in the fifth over and the 100 in the eighth At the ten over mark Surrey were 133 without loss and victory

    five wickets in hand Eckersley said We managed to get their final wicket quite quickly this morning and then it was a case of capitalising on a start and going big which is something we didn t really do in our first innings If we can get a lead above 100 and perhaps 200 tomorrow then we can look to put them under pressure in the final innings Twenty nine runs were added to Surrey s overnight total of 528 9 all of them by Pietersen who was left just two runs short of Bobby Abel s 116 year old record for the highest individual innings by a Surrey player That was set against Somerset at the Oval in 1899 There was a flipped four to fine leg from a ball pitching outside off stump a five when he tipped and ran for a short single to keep the strike and a run out attempt ricocheted off the stumps to the boundary a six slammed high over long off against Raine s fast medium and then a four launched over mid off to go to his 350 Matt Dunn though scoring only five in 104 minutes had stayed with Pietersen while a remarkable 139 runs were added for Surrey s final wicket Pietersen s historic knock was the sixth highest score ever made in the County Championship and the seventh highest first class innings made in England When Dunn popped up a catch to Lewis Hill at short square leg off a lifting ball from Raine after 4 5 overs of the morning session every Leicestershire player ran to congratulate Pietersen on his magnificent seven and a half hour innings County s second innings began badly with first innings century make Hill leg before to Dunn without scoring to the
