He may have had to accept a draw in his maiden match as Surrey captain, but Graeme Smith welcomed the first steps on his new journey with cautious optimism.
Steven Davies provided a welcome reminder of his class with a first Championship century in almost a year.

They may have come to see a South African opening batsman make his debut, but there would have been little pleasure for Surrey supporters in the identity of the eventual century scorer
