Surrey rolled for 72 then falter in follow-on as Keith Barker claims key scalps


Left-arm seamer dismisses Amla and Stoneman as Hampshire press for crucial win

Surrey 72 (Barker 4-24) and 6 for 2 trail Hampshire 488 by 410 runs

Hampshire will hope rain can stay away from the Ageas Bowl on day four of the LV = County Championship clash as they push for a crucial victory over Surrey.

Showers over Southampton kept the players off the field until 5pm, but Surrey, who resumed on 42 for 4, ended a truncated day on 6 for 2 having followed-on after being bundled out for 72 in response to Hampshire’s 488.

The visitors trail by 410 runs after the Hampshire bowlers ran amok with Brad Wheal striking with the last ball of the day to dismiss England opener Rory Burns for a duck after Keith Barker had dismissed Mark Stoneman – leaving nightwatchman Amar Virdi at the crease when play resumes on Wednesday.
