Fall of wickets: 1-50 (Mark Stoneman, 20.3 ov), 2-105 (Ryan Patel, 34.5 ov), 3-123 (Jamie Smith, 38.1 ov), 4-133 (Laurie Evans, 42.4 ov), 5-181 (Will Jacks, 62.6 ov), 6-285 (Jamie Overton, 96.1 ov), 7-346 (Sean Abbott, 119.5 ov), 8-428 (Hashim Amla, 148.1 ov), 9-468 (Rikki Clarke, 155.1 ov), 10-473 (Dan Moriarty, 157.6 ov)
34.5 to RS Patel, gottim, steered to the lone slip! They had just changed the ball, and it has done the trick for Payne, who gets one to straighten from a length and it flies off the outside edge. Patel had looked in good nick, but he's gone. 105/2
38.1 to JL Smith, does him with the left-arm angle, pushed across and finds the edge! Smith swishes the bat in frustration... nothing shot really, and Brathwaite holds on at first slip. 123/3
96.1 to J Overton, tight line, that's lifted from a length, and grazes the outside edge! Up goes the finger, and Overton turns ruefully to head straight back whence he came, gone to the first ball of the day! Probing line from Payne, hint of away movement and Overton's handy vigil at No. 7 is over. 285/6
20.3 to MD Stoneman, shuffles across, pinned on the knee... and given! Higgins going round the wicket has made the breakthrough, must have just been clipping leg, and Billy Taylor quickly put his finger up. Stoneman won't be cashing in today. 50/1
62.6 to WG Jacks, pitched full and wide and Jacks throws the bat... castles himself! Groans around the ground, Jacks is motionless on his knees as Higgins wheels away. On the verge of tea, and Gloucs find their fifth. 181/5
155.1 to R Clarke, bowled 'im! Higgins ends the fun with one that skids on from back of a length and flattens middle stump. Clarke is applauded from the field after a jaunty thrash, Gloucs one wicket away from ending their toil. 468/9
157.6 to D Moriarty, cleaned him up! Moriarty swings for the hills and loses two stumps, Higgins wraps up the Surrey innings. So Gloucestershire will have to negotiate a session after tea. 473/10
42.4 to LJ Evans, round the wicket, Taylor gets this to hold its line... and Tattersall bags the nick! Good ball, just shaping on a crease-bound prod from Evans, squared up and pouched behind the timbers. Gloucestershire fighting back here. 133/4
119.5 to SA Abbott, pushed through quicker, Abbott plants the front foot... and is given! Straightening just enough from Smith, hit him on middle and off looking to paddle, and although he got a stride in Billy Taylor was happy to accede to the appeal. 346/7
148.1 to HM Amla, oh my, Amla's chopped on! Hammond burgles the big wicket, tossed up well wide but there's some turn - which Surrey, and Amla, probably won't mind seeing - and a thick inside edge finally bursts his bubble. The crowd rises to give him a deserving send-off, we've seen another Amla masterclass. 428/8

14.6 to CDJ Dent, . 39/1
34.5 to KC Brathwaite, straight ball, Brathwaite props forward and takes it on the pads - given! Virdi strikes, wheels away in customary delight, and Surrey have their first opening of the morning. Think it hit him on the back leg, and then got lodged behind the pad flap. 84/2
38.6 to IA Cockbain, Cockbain sweeps, in the air, picks out square leg! Pouched by Abbott, something of a gimme - and Surrey are amongst 'em after a quiet first hour. 88/4
35.6 to TC Lace, tossed up from round the wicket, straightening to take the edge... and snapped up at slip! Surrey grab two in two overs, Lace gone for a duck. 85/3
39.4 to RF Higgins, oh dear, Higgins has left a straight one! Leans on his bat aghast as the off stump is pegged back... Moriarty has his second, and Glocuestershire are properly in the muck now!. 89/5
49.5 to JA Tattersall, tossed up full on the stumps, and Tattersall turns it straight to leg slip! He hangs his head, as Gloucestershire lose another with the lunch break looming.... 111/6
51.4 to TMJ Smith, prods forward, comes off the face - and Will Jacks snaffles it one handed at forward short leg! Moriarty has his fourth, and they will take lunch now, Gloucestershire seven down and in strife. Brilliantly taken in close by Jacks, completes a perfect morning for Surrey. 113/7
73.4 to DA Payne, bowls 'im! Payne pushes forward down the Bakerloo and Moriarty slips it past on the Piccadilly to hit off stump, and complete his five-for! Surrey one away from being able to enforce the follow on. 153/9
75.5 to MAH Hammond, short ball, pulled to midwicket, Moriarty finishes six-for! Hammond's gutsy knock comes to an end, and Gloucestershire have been bowled out in a little more than two sessions, trailing by 315. 158/10
70.2 to MD Taylor, Taylor is bowled leaving... rips from outside off, and hits the timber! Big turn, and that gives Jacks his maiden first-class wicket. Points to the sky in celebration, that ends a niggly stand for the eighth wicket. 144/8

Fall of wickets: 1-38 (Kraigg Brathwaite, 12.4 ov), 2-42 (Chris Dent, 13.4 ov), 3-44 (Tom Lace, 15.2 ov), 4-58 (Ian Cockbain, 21.3 ov), 5-84 (Ryan Higgins, 29.6 ov), 6-138 (Miles Hammond, 50.1 ov), 7-139 (Tom Smith, 51.1 ov), 8-181 (Matt Taylor, 61.5 ov), 9-212 (David Payne, 71.3 ov), 10-268 (Daniel Worrall, 78.5 ov)
50.1 to MAH Hammond, shout for lbw as Hammond gets down to sweep... and it's given! Looks like it's been given out caught behind, as he was hit so far outside the line that it couldn't have been lbw, but surely this was pad, rather than bat? Either way, Hammond has to trudge off, though he doesn't look best pleased about it. 138/6
78.5 to DJ Worrall, straight one, Worrall comes forward and can't get his bat down in time. He's cleaned up, and that will be that! A comfortable win for Surrey, by an innings and 47 runs. 268/10
21.3 to IA Cockbain, bowled him, Virdi cleans up Cobain and goes on a familiar dash towards deep point! Spinning through the gap between bat and pad, emphatically done, Gloucestershire sinking fast in their second innings. 58/4
29.6 to RF Higgins, Oh dear, Higgins has walked past one to be stumped... turn and bounce from wide of off again, Smith does well to take this around his left shoulder and complete the dismissal. 84/5
61.5 to MD Taylor, skips down the wicket, swings hard... and picks out long-on! What a bizarre shot to play while trying to save the game... Taylor goes, and Surrey are two away. 181/8
71.3 to DA Payne, tossed up outside off stump, Payne skips down... and picks out mid-on! A mistimed hack, and Payne can't clear the man. 212/9
12.4 to KC Brathwaite, chipped back to the bowler, Overton strikes! A miscue from Brathwaite and Surrey have their opening in the second innings. 38/1
51.1 to TMJ Smith, another lbw shout, much more convincing this time as Overton gets one to nip in sharply off the seam and pin Smith on the pad, and Gunner Gould agrees!. 139/7
13.4 to CDJ Dent, angled in, pins Dent on the front pad! Up goes the finger, and Abbott has his first Surrey wicket! Looked to be just in line with off stump, though Gloucestershire's captain lingered for a moment or two. 42/2
15.2 to TC Lace, through the gate, Lace is scuttled for a pair! May have been some inside edge, but the result is the same... Two for Abbott, three in as many overs, and Glocuestershire are rocking here. 44/3
