Vithushan Ehantharajah at Surrey 156-7 v Middlesex 395
I can't stress to you how great the atmosphere is at the Oval. To my right sit more than 4,000 kids who between screaming wildly for a boundary – there have been two in their direction so far – are chatting nonstop in that way that kids do. To my left are about 10 blokes who think it's a bit too loud. The school kids didn't quite know what to make of the dismissal of Tom Curran, who has just departed, caught behind, for eight. James Harris, bowling from the Pavilion End, got a fine edge through to John Simpson, who dove low and forward to take the catch. However, after the appeal, the standing umpire went to have a chat to square leg. Once square leg confirmed the legitimacy of the catch, Tom Curran was given the finger. Gareth Batty got off the mark an edge through to third man and the crowd has gone nuts.
