Burns unbeaten on 74 and Stoneman 59 not out as visitors still trail by 350 runs

Surrey 146 for 0 (Burns 74*, Stoneman 59*) trail Leicestershire 496 (Evans 112, Harris 101, Swindells 103, Mike 74, Virdi 6-171) by 350 runs

England opener Rory Burns passed 50 for the fourth time in seven innings this season as Surrey made a strong reply to Leicestershire’s big first-innings score on the second day of the LV= Insurance County Championship fixture at the UptonSteel County Ground.

Burns finished the day unbeaten on 74, having taken full advantage of the flat pitch to hit eight boundaries in reaching his half-century off 81 deliveries, and in so doing passing a personal landmark of 10,000 career first-class runs.

It was also a day to remember for 22-year-old Leicestershire wicketkeeper Harry Swindells, who made his maiden first-class century, and for Surrey off-spinner Amar Virdi, who picked up a six-wicket haul from 44.2 overs bowled.
