Rain and rotten performances against Durham

SURREY faced Durham twice this week and neither game ended in Chris Adams' team's favour.

Last Thursday's evening match against Durham Dynamos in the Yorkshire Bank 40 was washed out just after 8pm because of rain.

Jason Roy struck a century but unfortunately no result was possible as the weather stopped play after Surrey scored 216 all out.

On Friday it was the start of the County Championship Division One game, where a collapse after tea on day one cost Surrey dearly.

The five-wicket win moved Durham to the top of the table but meant another week without a County Championship triumph to Surrey's name.

Despite seeing Rory Burns caught for one in the first innings, Surrey were going well until the tail end of the order, with Gareth Batty, Stuart Meaker (not out), Tim Linley and Gary Keedy failing to record a run between them as Surrey finished 237 all out.

In reply, Durham posted a respectable 286 all out despite stand-in captain Gareth Batty taking five wickets. Mark Stoneman (77) and Dale Benkenstein (74no) made the biggest dents.

Career-best bowling from Durham's Scott Borthwick, claiming 6-70, for match figures of 8-92, meant Surrey were all out for 229 on the final morning.

On the previous, which had ended early because of rain, opener Roy was bowled by Callum Thorp for just four and Surrey struggled thereon with just Burns' 38 and Steven Davies' 46 giving the home side hope.

However, Borthwick then contributed 42 to a second-wicket stand of 100 with Mark Stoneman (67), with Durham needing 181 to win.

A 35 not out by Ben Stokes saw the visitors home by five wickets on 181-5.
