County Championship D1, Rose Bowl, day one (close): Surrey 283-2 v Hampshire
Ramprakash square cuts on his way to another three-figure score
Mark Ramprakash compiled his seventh Championship hundred of the summer and passed 30,000 first-class runs on day one against Hampshire at the Rose Bowl.
Ramprakash hit a six and 16 fours and was unbeaten on 124 out of Surrey's 283-2 when bad light ended play.
He shared a stand of 175 with Jon Batty (55) and found an equally reliable ally in Mark Butcher, who made 51 not out.
Daren Powell and Shaun Udal picked up a wicket each but Hampshire's attack was tidy, rather than threatening.
