Match scorecard

Tom New
New fell nine runs short of a third career first-class century

Tom New hit his highest score of the season as Leicestershire took further control on day two against Surrey.

New made 91 in over four hours but the visitors slipped from 457-5 to 479 all out, thanks to Jade Dernbach (5-87) and Gareth Batty (3-122).

In reply, Surrey were given a good start by Steve Davies (69) and were comfortable on 110-1.

But Claude Henderson took 3-46 in 16 overs to leave Surrey trailing their hosts by 319 runs.

The home side now face the prospect of following on and this on a pitch offering increasing turn.


Their prospects had seemed far better when they claimed Leicestershire's last five wickets for 22 in six overs after lunch, restricting them to a total of 479.

And although Arun Harinath (4) was then caught at second slip off Harry Gurney's (1-31) fourth ball, Davies and Mark Ramprakash (30) put on a century stand for the second wicket.

Davies, who completed a half-century off 62 balls, fell to left-armer Henderson in the 31st over and Ramprakash edged to slip four balls later.

Surrey lost their fourth wicket with the score on 125 when Nathan Buck (1-24) tumbled low to his left to pull off a brilliant return catch and get rid of Younis (3).

Henderson, who had Rory Hamilton-Brown dropped at slip before he had scored, matched Buck's effort to get rid of the Surrey captain 10 minutes from the close and in the next over Gareth Batty fell to a short-leg catch.
