Middlesex 237/5 (67.0 ov)
1-163 Newman (91) - triggered the collapse
2-177 Shah (3) - hmmm :/
3-220 Strauss (92) - no century for Strauss either
4-230 Dexter (9) - pity
5-236 Simpson (2) - death by a RHB ripper
Malan (24*), Berg (1*)
Middlesex have squirmed free of the certain draw and are forcing a decision now. Whoohoo.
Surrey 490 & 165/2 (42.0 ov)
Surrey bowled well, Dernbach grabbed 5, Middlesex all out by tea, Gareth Berg (45*) fought grittily against the windmills, but aided he was not, except by Finny (18); the partnership of these two last man standing nearly allowed Middlesex to escape the follow-on.
Surrey did not enforce the latter and are batting again, with Ramps (86*... I smell another ton) and Rory (5*) at the crease. Finny took the consolation wicket of opener LJ Evans (7) but Evans' partner Harinath (63) ganged up with Ramps and could only be removed by Owais.
Hopes for a draw,
