6.33pm Surrey need four off the last over to win. They are 223-6. Patterson to bowl it, Foakes on strike on 41.

6.30pm Surrey are 218-6, needing nine off 11 balls to win this one. Thompson to Foakes, who has 36.

6.16pm Hardie and Foakes have swept sixes off Bess in the ongoing 39th to swing it back Surrey’s way, unfortunately. They are 199-6, needing 28 more.

5.54pm Surrey are 164-6 in the 33rd over of 44. They still require 63 to win. Foakes 15, Hardie 4. All results still possible.

5.30pm WICKET Now then. Gabriel uproots Smith’s off-stump with a beauty. It’s 147-6 in the 28th over, and Surrey are chasing 227 in 44. What a finish we have in prospect.

5.23pm WICKET Jacks lbw by Gabriel in his first over, 27. 140-5 in the 26th over. Surrey still need 87. Interesting finish ahead.

5.10pm WICKET Overton trapped lbw by a Thompson slower ball, 28. Surrey are 121-4 in the 24th over of 44. The visitors are chasing 227.

4.54pm WICKET Amla caught at deep third by Wharton off Thompson, 28. Surrey are 90-3 in the 20th over, chasing 227 in 44.

4.26pm WICKET Patel miscues Patterson high to Bess at cover, 27. Surrey are 64-2 in the 14th. Overton elevated up the order. 227 target in a total of 44.

4.03pm Up and running after tea. Surrey, chasing 227 in 44, are 33-1 after seven overs. Gabriel off the field with a bruised hip, while Hill is nursing a foot injury and is also not on the field.

Tea Report Surrey have reached tea on day four at 32-1 from 6.5 overs as they chase 227 in 44 to beat Yorkshire at Scarborough.

Yorkshire were bowled out for 220 midway through the afternoon, including Matthew Waite’s career best 59 not out and Jamie Overton’s 6-61.

The hosts lost four wickets after lunch, including three of them to Overton, who had Jordan Thompson and Steve Patterson caught at second slip and Shannon Gabriel caught behind.

Waite flayed the bat when he had only last man Gabriel for company, leading a 32-run partnership which could yet be crucial in the final reckoning.

Surrey started their chase confidently against a Yorkshire attack minus the services of Gabriel, who has not taken the field before tea.

But Dom Bess struck immediately before the break, getting Rory Burns stumped for 20 with the penultimate ball of the afternoon. The visitors still need 195 runs to win.

3.42pm – Tea Burns stumped off Bess, 20. 32-1 in the seventh. That will be tea. Surrey need another 195 to win. Their innings started with 44 overs remaining in the day.

3.28pm Surrey are not hanging around here. They are 24-0 in the fourth over of their chase. The hosts don’t have the services of Shannon Gabriel for now and George Hill, who are off the field.

Not sure what the situation is with Gabriel, but Hill was struck on the boot by Overton this morning when trapped lbw and hobbled off.

3.08pm WICKET Gabriel caught behind off Overton, who finishes with six. Yorkshire 220 all out, leaving Surrey need 227 to win in 44 overs. Waite unbeaten on an excellent 59.

3.03pm Entertaining stuff from Waite, as he reaches a maiden first-class fifty off 73 balls. He’s since moved to 59 with a flurry of boundaries off Worrall. Yorkshire are 216-9, leading by 222 with 47 overs remaining. 28 stand and counting with Gabriel.

2.49pm WICKET Patterson falls to the same combination as Thompson, caught second slip by Jacks off Overton, who has his fifth wicket. Yorkshire are 188-9, leading by 194 with 51.3 overs remaining.

2.40pm WICKET Thompson caught at second slip by Jacks off Overton, 5. Yorkshire 180-8, leading by 186 with 52.4 overs remaining.

2.36pm WICKET Jacks gets Tattersall lbw for 14. Yorkshire 175-7, a lead of 181 with a little more than 53 overs remaining.

2.04pm Yorkshire adding important runs here. 155-6 in the 51st over, a lead of 161 with just under 61 overs remaining in the day. Waite 20 and Tattersall 6.

1.50pm We’re up and running after lunch, with Yorkshire 138-6 in the 46th over. Waite 12, Tattersall 5. We have 65 overs remaining.

Lunch Report Yorkshire find themselves under pressure heading into the final two sessions against Surrey at Scarborough after a four-wicket fourth morning.

The hosts, aiming to secure a sixth LV= Insurance County Championship draw of the season, fell from 65-2 overnight to 136-6 at lunch, a lead of 141 with 67 overs remaining in the day.

All four wickets fell lbw to different bowlers during a session shortened by five overs due to bad light and then rain.

George Hill (38) was trapped lbw by Jamie Overton before the stoppage in play between 11.35am and 12pm.

Will Fraine was then trapped lbw by Dan Worrall first ball after the resumption, leaving Yorkshire at 80-4 with a lead of 86.

Following that, Tom Lawes got James Wharton for 23 and Aaron Hardie removed Will Luxton in the next over, with Yorkshire 123-6 after 38 overs.

Matthew Waite will begin the afternoon on 12 and Jonny Tattersall three.

A potential issue looming for Yorkshire is their slow over-rate in the first innings, which stands at minus four.

If they are unable to rectify that later in the day when bowling, they would be docked as many as four points from their match haul.

The rule is one point lost for every over behind the rate you are.

1pm – Lunch Yorkshire have moved to 135-6, a lead of 141 with 67 overs remaining in the day. Waite 12, Tattersall 2.

12.39pm WICKET Luxton trapped lbw by Hardie, 14. Yorkshire 123-6, a lead of 129. First-innings centurion Tattersall arrives at the crease to join Waite, who has 6.

12.30pm WICKET Wharton lbw Lawes, 23. Yorkshire 111-5, a lead of 117.

12.27pm Potential issue looming for Yorkshire in that they are -4 on the over-rate. Every over you are behind is a one point deduction. So, if they don’t end up bowling again, Yorkshire will finish this game with a four-point deduction.

12.24pm Yorkshire have moved rot 110-4, a lead of 116, including 22 not out for Wharton and 14 for Luxton.

11.58am WICKET Fraine trapped lbw by Worrall first ball back after the resumption. It’s 80-4, a lead of 86. Five overs lost, so there’s 82 overs remaining.

11.46am Yorkshire will have Shadab Khan and Dom Drakes as their two overseas players at Finals Day. Finn Allen has not be released by New Zealand to play.

11.43am It’s raining now at Scarborough.

11.35am We’re off for bad light, with Yorkshire 80-3 after 29 overs, leading by 86.

There are 87 overs remaining in the day, but time will be lost immediately.

11.18am WICKET Hill trapped lbw by Overton, 38. Yorkshire 73-3 after 25 overs, leading by 79.

11.01am We’re an over into day four at Scarborough, bowled by Overton. A single for Hill off it. Yorkshire 66-2, leading by 72. Worrall sharing the morning bowling duties.

9.15am Let’s have a look around the grounds at what else is going on before we get going here.

Division One

Essex 310 and 79-1 beat Gloucestershire 136 and 252 by nine wickets, Chelmsford
Hampshire 370-9 dec v Warwickshire 217 and 212-9, Ageas Bowl
Kent 335 v Northamptonshire 303 and 284-5, Canterbury
Lancashire 624-9 v Somerset 446, Southport

Division Two

Durham 296 v Derbyshire 283 and 329-6, Riverside
Glamorgan 318 and 421-5 dec v Nottinghamshire 285 and 19-1, Sophia Gardens
Middlesex 188 and 240 lost by seven wickets to Worcestershire 191 and 238-3, Merchant Taylors’ School
Sussex 588-9 v Leicestershire 529-4, Hove

Good morning from Scarborough, where it has been raining this morning but is dry and bright now.

The players have just started their warm-ups ahead of day four, which Yorkshire will begin on 65-2 in their second innings, leading by 71.

Jamie Overton struck twice in the penultimate over of day three last night to get Surrey’s tails up, removing Adam Lyth caught behind and Dom Bess lbw.

Yorkshire will clearly need a good first hour to nullify any danger.

However, if they did get bowled out for the addition of another 130 runs, say, it could end up being a fascinating second half of the final day as Surrey chase victory.

Matthew Revis is currently batting in the nets under the watchful gaze of assistant coach Ali Maiden, the all-rounder practicing his range hitting ahead of Finals Day on Saturday.

There will be a live stream available once again via our Match Centre tab at the top of this page. We are all set for an 11am start. Enjoy the day.
