Che Pujara says the Yorkshire dressing room are happy with their position after two days against Surrey at Scarborough.

Surrey, replying to 342, are 219-7 in their first-innings after an action-packed day which saw runs, wickets, disciplinary issues and 14.5 overs lost due to bad light via sea fret.

Pujara, playing his last game before India Test duty in England in August, said: “We are in a very good position.

“If we get somewhere around a 100-run lead, we have a fair chance. There is still something in it for the fast bowlers.

“We will be looking to bowl them out in the next session, not more than that for sure. You never know – if we grab a couple of early wickets, we could get them all out earlier.

“If we get that 100-run lead and put up 350-400, we should have a good chance on the last day.”

After tea, play was stopped nine times, totalling 25 minutes of stoppages, before umpires Peter Hartley and Paul Pollard took the players off the field.

Pujara said: “It was a new thing for me.

“I have never experienced sea fret, but I have fog in Northern India, places like Delhi and Dharamsala. When we start at 9.30am in the winter, it’s similar light.

“But fog doesn’t clear as quickly and come back again as it did tonight.”
