Frustrating second day

Only 13 overs were possible on the second day against Glamorgan due to rain and bad light as Surrey closed on 209-7 with Zafar Ansari 60*.

Surrey resumed on their overnight 182-5 as play finally got underway at 12.20 due to bad light and rain. Jason Roy opened proceedings with a delicious straight drive to the Pavilion boundary and Ansari drove Rory Smith to the third man boundary rope.

Roy had moved onto 15 when he feathered Jim Allenby down the legside and Mark Wallace took a routine catch to leave Surrey 193-6. Bad light forced the players off the field of play for 15 minutes and upon the resumption Tom Curran fell without scoring when he was brilliantly taken by Wallace again off the bowling of Allenby.

Stuart Meaker joined Ansari and took Surrey past 200 with a boundary off Michael Hogan which secured Surrey’s first batting point of the summer. The rain arrived again ten minutes before the scheduled lunch break with Surrey 209-7 with Ansari unbeaten on 60 and kept falling until the umpires had no choice but to call a halt to proceedings at just after 5 o’clock.

The forecast for tomorrow is much improved and there is still an awful lot of cricket to be played at the Kia Oval.
