At the close of the third day of the LV County Championship match between Middlesex and Surrey at Lord’s, Surrey were just 46 runs from a victory target of 141, with six wickets remaining.  During a chilly and attritional morning session, Middlesex’s seamers took Surrey’s last five first innings wickets  to bowl them out for 222, fast bowler Toby Roland-Jones taking two wickets. Middlesex claimed a lead of 34 but could muster just 106 more in their second innings, which lasted just over a session. Jon Lewis produced two spells of virtuoso seam bowling to take  five for 41, while Jade Dernbach chipped in with the wickets of first innings top-scorer Dawid Malan and opener Sam Robson, whose aggressive 43 averted a disaster for the hosts. Surrey were 95-4 at close of play, captain Rory Hamilton-Brown unbeaten on an adventurous 51.
