34.2 to DW Lawrence, . 104/3
69.4 to T Westley, pitched up, Westley drives... and gets a thick inside edge into his timbers! Essex lose both of their set batters in short order. 224/5
18.2 to NLJ Browne, breakthrough for Surrey, Atkinson strikes with his second ball! Back of a length and nipping away, Browne fends at it and a thick outside edge is gobbled up at third slip. 62/1
28.2 to AN Cook, brilliantly held down the leg side! Atkinson extracts Cook, who had enjoyed a couple of lives but is taken this time by Ben Foakes, diving one-handed to his right. Atkinson beat Cook on the outside edge with the previous ball, then grazed the inside with one coming back in, but it needed the athleticism of Foakes to complete the dismissal. 95/2
75.1 to DAJ Bracewell, nibbling back in, Bracewell chops on! Third wicket for Atkinson, Surrey battling back brilliantly since tea. 241/7
77.2 to S Snater, . 245/8
89.3 to SJ Cook, . 307/9
91.2 to SR Harmer, . 314/10
68.2 to MJJ Critchley, Burns takes a screamer at slip! Floated up wide of off, Critchley chases the drive and squirts a thick edge high and to the right of slip... only for Burns to fling up his right paw and cling on. Ends a century stand for the fourth wicket. 218/4
70.2 to MS Pepper, Pepper attempts to reverse-sweep - and is given caught behind! It looked an awkward shot, close to the gloves as it bobbled through to Foakes, and up went the finger. Essex have lost 3 for spit. 224/6

16.6 to RJ Burns, fullish length, seaming away... and a low edge is taken at first slip! A Cook holds on going to his right, and S Cook has the breakthrough. An Essex Chefs special does for Burns. 56/1
52.3 to BT Foakes, pitched up, Foakes goes for the drive... and drags on! Off stump out of the ground, Foakes is comprehensively done for. Surrey lose their seventh. 167/7
51.3 to CT Steel, dragged down... and slapped straight to deep square leg! Steel gifts Harmer a wicket on the stroke of tea, and the champions are in a little strife, having lost 5 for 58 during the afternoon session. 163/6
34.1 to OJ Pope, first ball of a new spell and Porter strikes! Maybe stayed a touch low, Pope was pinned on the front pad and up went Mike Burns' finger. Looked pretty adjacent. Surrey have lost 3 for 5 here. 110/4
66.4 to J Clark, . 212/8
74.6 to SA Abbott, . 235/9
76.5 to AAP Atkinson, . 240/10
43.4 to WG Jacks, stays low, trapped on the crease! Jacks was back in front of his stumps and could do very little as the ball cannoned into his pads. Pretty simple decision for umpire James Middlebrook. 149/5
28.1 to DP Sibley, drives at a length ball in the channel - gone! Bracewell coaxes an edge, slightly crooked bat from Sibley and Pepper swallows it behind the stumps. 105/2
30.4 to JL Smith, jaffa from Bracewell! Speared in and then nipping away on off stump to graze the edge through to Pepper! Two in quick succession for the Kiwi. 107/3

11.6 to AN Cook, lovely delivery from Roach, and Cook has been cleaned up in the first over of the day! Round the wicket, just enough inswing to beat the attempted drive, and off pole is out of the ground. 24/1
25.6 to T Westley, angled in and curling away, feathered behind! Westley survived a tight appeal earlier in the over, but he turns and heads for the pavilion this time. Clark picks up Surrey's second wicket of the morning. 62/2
45.1 to MJJ Critchley, now Critchley holes out to deep midwicket! Banged in short by Clark, he's hitting to the longer boundary, where Jamie Smith takes a good, tumbling catch. 154/6
49.3 to SJ Cook, length ball, Cook chips to cover! Essex's innings is dribbling away in a flurry of shots. But maybe thy already think they have enough. 181/9
51.5 to S Snater, bowled 'im! Pitched up, full and straight from Clark, a big old swing and a miss from Snater and that is the end of the Essex innings. 198/10
35.6 to DW Lawrence, bowled 'im! Lawrence tries to get funky and walks across his stumps, only to miss the ball and see it clatter into leg stump. 116/3
37.3 to NLJ Browne, short ball, Browne heaves across the line... and is caught at midwicket! Well held above his head by Jacks. Atkinson gets another, Surrey chipping away. 119/4
40.6 to MS Pepper, charges down, throws the bat... and slashes a thick edge to deep third! Pepper goes cheaply looking for fast runs straight after lunch. Are Essex thinking of a declaration here?. 134/5
46.5 to DAJ Bracewell, top-edged swipe, Abbott pouches the catch! Bracwell was here for a good time not a long time, and Essex are six down, the lead 237. They seem pretty determined to set up a chase here. 163/7
48.1 to SR Harmer, full and thumped - straight to long-on! Burns holds it safely, Essex lose their eighth, Harmer the latest to fall trying to give it a whack. 170/8

1.2 to DP Sibley, gone for a duck, Sibley nicks low to second slip! Searching line and just a touch of seam movement away from the right-hander, takes the outside edge to be scooped up by the bucket hands of Harmer. 0/1
20.1 to OJ Pope, Pope miscues to cover! Snater takes the big wicket, wasn't quite there for the drive and it popped up for a simple catch. Still no Surrey batter has passed 50 in this game. Time to batten down the hatches?. 73/3
24.1 to WG Jacks, pitched up, and Jacks skews his drive to midwicket! Snater gets his second and Surrey might well now turn thoughts to trying to make this game safe. 83/4
13.4 to RJ Burns, brilliant grab at slip! Big flash at a full, wide delivery, Burns gets a thick edge... and Harmer goes one-handed high to his left to pluck an absolute blinder! And with that wicket, the players troop off for tea, Surrey needing 234 from 40.2 overs. 39/2
45.2 to CT Steel, Steel goes, trapped in front by a full toss! Flicks and misses, the ball angling in towards middle and leg, and Middlebrook doesn't have to think long about the decision. Essex three wickets away, 8.4 overs left to bowl. 128/7
28.1 to SA Abbott, and he strikes first ball! Abbott fulfils his brief by attempting a takedown of the offspinner, but skies his slog towards cow corner, where Matt Critchley settles himself safely under the catch. The ECG crowd roar in approval, Essex halfway to their target. 103/5
28.3 to BT Foakes, pinned in front second ball! Spin for Harmer and it catches Foakes on the crease, neither fully back nor forwards, and up goes Mike Burns' finger. Now then, the champions really are on the ropes. 103/6
