Only 25 overs were possible on the second day, due to a combination of rain and bad light, but Surrey made the best of the limited window of opportunity by cleaning up the New Zealand A tail and then wiping out two thirds of the deficit.

They lost three wickets in the process, though that was an improvement on their first innings, when they made just 101. Rory Burns led the way with an unbeaten 31, after New Zealand A's three seamers, Matt Henry, Hamish Bennett and Scott Kuggeleijn took a wicket apiece.

New Zealand A had gained a lead of 110 despite losing their last three wickets for the addition of just nine runs to the overnight score. Jade Dernbach, Surrey's captain in this match, removed Todd Astle in the second over of the morning, before a break for rain.

Dernbach and Matt Dunn then shared the final two wickets when play resumed in the afternoon, giving the latter a four-wicket haul, before play was eventually curtailed by poor light.
