Windies A batsmen weather the storm after Surrey stick their foot in the door
Mark Stoneman and Ryan Patel who were not out overnight, were only able to add a few runs to this scores before they were dismissed in quick succession. Will Jacks scored an unbeaten 47 as Surrey declared quickly due to the shortage of time.

Surrey bowlers tried with all their heart to dismiss Windies A for a paultry total but that could not materialize. John Campbell and Charles Hemraj gave Windies A a good start.
The side lost their first wicket for 79. By then, it seemed too late for Surrey to stick their foot in the door. However, when the second wicket also fell for 79, there was a ray of hope for the Surrey bowlers.
It was then down to Sunil Ambris (63*) and Vishaul Singh (26) who weathered the storm. After Singh was bowled by Morne Morkel, wicket-keeper Thomas remained unbeaten in a good partnership with Sunil Ambris to see the team through to a draw.
The three-day match was filled with of lots of ups and downs and was a good entertainer all in all. If Surrey had one extra day, they could have surely come up with better results.
