Yorkshire have reached tea on 158-7 from 52 overs, advancing from 49-2 at lunch. They need to reach 184 to avoid the follow-on.
Tom Kohler-Cadmore hit a pugnacious 55 with nine fours and a lovely straight six off West Indian Test quick Kemar Roach.
But he was the first of three wickets to fall inside the last seven overs of the session following a sixth-wicket partnership of 72 between Kohler-Cadmore and captain Jonny Tattersall, who remains unbeaten on 37.
George Hill and Will Fraine fell early in the session to Tom Lawes and Dan Worrall, caught behind and at second slip respectively, leaving Yorkshire at 67-4 in the 30th over.
Kohler-Cadmore and Tattersall then steadied the ship for the visitors with some elegant strokeplay. The former’s six off Roach, into the seats in front of sight-screen at the Pavilion End was as good a shot as there has been in this match.
But Kohler-Cadmore then lost his shape as he tried to clobber seamer Lawes down the ground and edged behind, leaving Yorkshire 139-5 in the 47th.
Dom Bess then chopped on to Clark in the next over before the same bowler had Jordan Thompson caught behind in his next – 146-7 in the 50th.
Debutant Ben Mike will begin the evening on five not out.
3.34pm – Tea Yorkshire 158-7 after 52 overs. Tattersall 37 and Mike five. We need to get to 184 to avoid the follow-on as we reply to 333.

3.06pm WICKET! Kohler-Cadmore caught behind off Lawes for a well made 55. 139-5 in the 47th. He’s attacked with success over the last half hour. Unfortunately, it was one stroke too many.
2.58pm Kohler-Cadmore reaches an excellent fifty off 68 balls, taking three boundaries off Clark’s latest over. Yorkshire 130-4 in the 45th. Tattersall 23.
2.44pm Yorkshire 113-4 in the 42nd over, with Kohler-Cadmore (37) and Tattersall (19) having shared 46 unbroken. Excellent stuff from these two.
2.41pm Safe to say the Diamonds can start preparing to face the Vipers in Sunday’s RHF Trophy final at Lord’s. The Vipers are 80-0 chasing 140 in today’s semi-final play-off clash with Stars at Beckenham.
2.38pm Yorkshire have moved to 100-4, responding to 333. Kohler-Cadmore 35 and Tattersall 10.

1.33pm WICKET! Hill caught behind by Foakes off Lawes, 28. Yorkshire 60-3 in the 25th over.
1.22pm Yorkshire 50-2 in the 22nd over – early stages of the afternoon. Kohler-Cadmore has joined Hill (26) at the crease.
Lunch Report Yorkshire, led by George Hill, have enjoyed an encouraging second morning with bat and ball as they battle back against LV= Insurance County Championship leaders Surrey at the Micky Stewart Oval.
Surrey, 292-6 overnight, were bowled out for 333, including two wickets for Hill and one apiece for Bens Mike and Coad (3-41).
Hill has since played the lead role in advancing Yorkshire’s first-innings reply to 49-2 at lunch.
Mike claimed his first Yorkshire wicket three balls into the day’s opening over, forcing Jordan Clark to chop on for 55 – 293-7 in the 74th over.
Hill then trapped Test quicks Jamie Overton lbw and bowled West Indian Kemar Roach before Coad wrapped things up by getting last man Dan Worrall caught at deep mid-wicket.
Hill then led Yorkshire’s response, batting with skill and confidence for an unbeaten 25.
Adam Lyth edged Roach to third slip – 14-1 in the ninth over of the reply – before Hill and opener Fin Bean shared 35 against a title-chasing Surrey attack including a trio of internationals seamers Overton, Roach and Australian Worrall.
Unfortunately, Bean was bowled for 12 in the final over of the session to put a dampener on things.
12.40pm – Lunch Bean bowled by Lawes, 12. Ah, disappointing end to what had been an impressive session for Yorkshire. We reach lunch at 49-2 replying to Surrey 333. Hill 25 not out after two wickets earlier.
12.22pm Over at Chelmsford, where there was 26 wickets on day one between Essex and Lancashire, there have already been eight more on day two. Essex, chasing 98, have fallen to 28-4. George Balderson has just taken a hat-trick. Crazy.
12.10pm Yorkshire 32-1 in the 14th over. Hill 14 and Bean six.
Looks like the Diamonds are going to be meeting the Vipers again in Sunday’s Rachael Heyhoe Flint Trophy final. The Stars are 86-7 against Vipers in the semi-final play-off tie at Beckenham.
12.02pm Surrey have had a number of appeals for lbw and caught behind so far, all turned down. Yorkshire are 27-1 in the 12th over, Hill having just taken back-to-back boundaries to third off Worrall. The sky is getting brighter as well.

9.35am You can recap yesterday’s action from the Oval via our Match Report and reaction piece with Steve Patterson, for which the links are below.
Good morning from the Micky Stewart Oval, where it is an overcast start to day two.
Surrey will begin it on 292-6 in their first innings after a disappointing day for Yorkshire yesterday, having won the toss and not made the most of conditions.
Surrey are not expected to die wondering with the bat this morning. They are quite concerned about losing overs to light later in the day and suggestions of a dodgy forecast for Friday.
With the way the Hampshire v Kent game is shaping up – their closest title challengers Hampshire are on the back foot – they know a win here could well secure them the title.
Yorkshire have a new ball in just over six overs when play starts at 10.30am.
Fingers crossed, that aggression brings about some quick wickets and we can get on with the task of responding strongly with the bat.
Yesterday saw a glut on wickets around the circuit, but over in Karachi England beat Pakistan in the opening T20 of a seven-match series. Harry Brook hit an unbeaten 42 to get England over the line chasing 159. They won by six wickets with four balls to spare.
There will be a live stream available via Surrey’s YouTube channel today. Enjoy the day.
