6.53pm Fist-bumps time. A valiant effort from both sides there. Surrey set up a challenging declaration, Middlesex went for it with gusto through Nick Gubbins and Peter Handscomb, and Surrey finished back on top thanks to Kemar Roach's farewell five-for. And all in front of a crowd too! Cricket, it's back...

55.6
Roach to Helm, no run

short ball outside off, Roach's work is done, for this match and this Surrey stint. A round of thanks from his team-mates too, and a a wave to the crowd too. That's nice. A rare sight in these times too!

55.5
Roach to Helm, no run

solid on the front foot, meeting the length ball with a full face

55.5
2nb
Roach to Helm, (no ball)

another bouncer, a no-ball... Surrey won't mind that!

55.4
Roach to Helm, no run

rocks his head back for emphasis as Helm sways out of line. Never in danger of taking that one on

55.3
Roach to Helm, no run

a chessboard of attacking fielders now as Helm hops back onto his stumps to block

55.2
Roach to Helm, no run

yorker, well dug out. This is a tremendous final flourish from Roach. Can he send himself off with a ten-for at least?

55.1
Roach to Helm, no run

sharp lifter, so close to Helm's upraised glove!

54.6
Topley to White, no run

draws the bat inside the line, this match needs a hat-trick to reignite it

54.5
Topley to White, no run

through to the keeper outside off. An inverted arrowhead of catchers behind the wicket. Gully, slip, leg slip, leg gully

54.4
Topley to White, no run

fenced to the leg side, squared up on impact

54.3
Topley to White, no run

firm on the front foot, into the covers

54.2
Topley to White, no run

bouncer, sharp one, White ducks

Burns joins the party at leg slip

54.1
Topley to White, no run

round the wicket, solidly blocked. Middlesex have given up the chase, can Surrey turn up the pressure?

53.6
Roach to Helm, no run

hops onto the back foot, solid in defence

Roach and Burns have a chat, and suddenly the mood changes. In comes a slip, a regular short leg... a bit of attention for the new man

Roach to White, 1 run

bangs in the short ball, White hops onto the back foot

53.4
Roach to White, no run

bouncer, White sways inside the line

Roach to Andersson, OUT

five-for for Roach! He's signing off in style. Andersson's joy is short-lived, as he aims a waft to leg and is bowled off his pads for his efforts. At what stage do Middlesex think they ought to shut up shop? As might have been mentioned, their batting has been frail of late...
