Tim Murtagh1582841.86784000
4.2 to RJ Burns, edged and gone! Murtagh finds the outside edge as Burns prods forwards, and Robson takes a sharp low catch at second slip. 22/1
4.5 to HM Amla, trapped on the pad, and up goes the finger! Amla was shuffling across looking to work this through mid-on, but there's enough seam movement to hit him on the knee roll and that looked to be smashing into leg stump. 22/2
36.5 to JL Smith, nips in sharply from a length as Smith is caught on the crease, and trims the top of the stumps! Surrey in all sorts. 107/5
38.5 to J Clark, wide, and Clark throws his hands at it... and nails it straight to cover! Surrey are crumbling. 107/7
Ethan Bamber1425113.64638000
43.2 to RJW Topley, straight through! Topley is cleaned up by a straight one, which crashes into the top of middle and off. 124/8
Toby Roland-Jones1444132.92686010
15.6 to OJ Pope, full on fifth stump, Pope is suckered into the drive and is caught low at second slip! Big moment. Didn't need to be driving at it, but a very sharp catch by Robson. 51/3
24.1 to BT Foakes, sharp low catch by Simpson and Surrey are four down! Hint of shape away from the bat down the slope to find the outside edge as Foakes drives, and Simpson snaffles it diving forwards. Two for Roland-Jones, four for Middlesex. 72/4
37.6 to MD Stoneman, awkward length as Stoneman stays back, and just a hint of movement to take the shoulder of the bat and fly into the hands of Simpson behind the stumps! Roland-Jones joins Murtagh on three wickets. 107/6
Martin Andersson10.422702.53525000
Luke Hollman21412.00111000
54.2 to KAJ Roach, Roach lines up a big wipe down the ground, and Hollman knocks back his leg stump! Maiden first-class wicket with his eighth ball, and out comes Amar Virdi at No. 11. 153/9

Fall of wickets: 1-8 (Max Holden, 3.2 ov), 2-16 (Nick Gubbins, 5.1 ov), 3-16 (Peter Handscomb, 5.4 ov), 4-149 (Robbie White, 58.4 ov), 5-161 (John Simpson, 64.2 ov), 6-189 (Martin Andersson, 74.3 ov), 7-215 (Sam Robson, 85.4 ov), 8-228 (Luke Hollman, 90.4 ov), 9-261 (Ethan Bamber, 99.3 ov), 10-268 (Tim Murtagh, 100.5 ov)
Kemar Roach2575312.121278000
99.3 to ER Bamber, edged, parried, gone! Thick edge from Bamber flies to Burns at second slip, who knocks it up towards Clarke at first. Clarke sticks out a hand, grabs it, and is nearly taken out by Foakes in the process, but manages to cling on, and Bamber is gone. 261/9
Reece Topley2675642.151276000
3.2 to MDE Holden, very full outswinger, and somehow dug out into the slips! Holden didn't commit to the shot, managing to steer it to second slip, moving to his left. 8/1
5.1 to NRT Gubbins, cleaned up by a low full-bunger! Bizarre moment as Gubbins misses a straight one. Full toss, which crashes into the base of off stump as Gubbins gets himself into a right pickle trying to clip an outswinger through the leg side. 16/2
5.4 to PSP Handscomb, nips back through the gate and Handscomb is out third ball! Very loose shot, driving at a fullish ball, and Topley has three early ones!. 16/3
85.4 to SD Robson, big shout and up goes the finger! Full and straight does the trick from Topley as Robson gets a long way across towards the off side. He's hit in front of middle-and-leg and this looked to be crashing into leg stump. Four for Topley, who has been exceptional, and Robson falls five short of a second ton of the season. 215/7
Jordan Clark2145832.76957000
58.4 to RG White, chopped on! Back of a length, maybe a hint of extra bounce, and White mistimes the back-foot punch, only managing to inside-edge onto his off stump - which goes flying. Determined innings, steering Middlesex towards a lead, but a disappointing end. 149/4
64.2 to JA Simpson, full length, draws an outside edge from Simpson and Middlesex are five down! Clark has his second. Just a fraction of movement down the slope to find the nick, and Simpson goes early. 161/5
90.4 to LBK Hollman, banged in halfway down, and Hollman pulls... straight to short midwicket! Virdi didn't have to move an inch in tight. Creamed straight to him. 228/8
Rikki Clarke20.527623.64857100
74.3 to MK Andersson, length ball, which nips away to knock Andersson's off stump out of the ground! Sketchy innings comes to an end, and Surrey are into the bowlers. 189/6
100.5 to TJ Murtagh, another wild mow, which loops up into the hands of mid-off. Middlesex lead by 114 on first innings, thanks mainly to that stand between Robson and Robbie White. 268/10

Tim Murtagh1993021.571036000
42.1 to BT Foakes, edged to second slip and Robson clings on! Surrey have lost two early ones and are five down while still in the red. Classic Murtagh, drawing the outside edge from a length, and Foakes is gone. 113/5
50.1 to R Clarke, smashed on the front pad, and Murtagh has another! Clarke is beaten on the inside edge as the ball holds its line from a fullish length, maybe nibbling back in just a fraction off the seam, and that is salmon. 130/8
Ethan Bamber1123032.72514000
5.6 to MD Stoneman, trapped on the pad and up goes the finger! Nipped back up the slope, hitting Stoneman on the shin, and Middlesex have their first. 16/1
35.1 to RJ Burns, nicks off to the first ball of the day! What a moment for Middlesex and for Bamber. Fullish, tight line, and did just enough to take the outside edge. 105/4
43.3 to JL Smith, trapped on the pad and the finger is straight up! Smith gone and Surrey lose their sixth. Stinking morning for them so far, but a belting one for Ethan Bamber, who angles this back in from a fullish length to hit the pad. 117/6
Toby Roland-Jones1242942.41605000
7.1 to HM Amla, trapped on the pad and the finger goes straight up! A pair for Amla, including a first-baller in the second. Amla shuffled across, looking to work this through midwicket, but got himself in a right mess and goes first ball. He stands there quizzically for a moment before trudging off, but this looked like it would hit the top of leg stump. 20/2
47.4 to J Clark, middle stump goes flying! Surrey's slide towards defeat continues. Hardly a hint of movement from TRJ but a full length and Clark missed a straight one, looking to drive back past the stumps. 124/7
51.3 to RJW Topley, stumps splattered! Fullish, straight, Topley is late on the shot jamming his bat down and middle stump is sent cartwheeling with leg stump jutting out to one side. Roland-Jones has a third, Surrey are effectively 16 for 9. 130/9
51.6 to A Virdi, full, straight, smashed on the pad, and that's that! Middlesex need 17 to win. Roland-Jones claims a fourth, and Surrey have lost seven wickets for 25 runs in 78 minutes today. 130/10
Martin Andersson512214.40235000
22.4 to OJ Pope, nicks him off! Pope throws his head up in frustration. Two starts, but no score of note in this match. Length ball from Andersson, which drew a flirt outside off stump, and Simpson gobbles up the easiest of chances behind the stumps. 79/3
