Toss: Yorkshire won the toss and elected to bat


Yorkshire claimed their third win in the first eight matches of the 2019 Division One campaign in pulsating fashion. The White Rose secured a 22-point success with only 10 balls remaining against the faltering defending champions, who certainly had their moments of dominance. Surrey, chasing a target of 318 in 83 overs during the final day, were hurt by the loss of five wickets for six runs in 35 balls either side of tea, slipping from 157-2 to 163-7 and later 194 all out. Ben Coad, Keshav Maharaj (3-69), Duanne Olivier and David Willey shared the second-innings wickets, but it was Olivier who claimed the winning wicket when Bradford-born veteran Gareth Batty edged into the slips to spark wild celebrations. The tense finale was set up by three consecutive innings scores in between 320 and 365. Opener Will Fraine hit a superb first-innings century for the hosts, his maiden first-class ton, before former England batsman Mark Stoneman hit 100 for Surrey, who claimed a lead of 35. A series of solid contributions in Yorkshire’s second innings then set up an ultimately successful victory pursuit.
