Shiv Chanderpaul's eight-hour innings of 182 dominated today's first two sessions at the Kia Oval where Lancashire batted on well into day two of this Specsavers County Championship encounter to post a first-innings total of 470 all out.

The visitors added 176 to their first day score before a limping Chanderpaul became their last man out just after 3.30pm. In the 10 overs through to tea, Surrey had reached 27 without loss in reply.

Soon after lunch, Surrey seamer Mark Footitt switched to the Vauxhall End to complete his fifth five-wicket haul in as many first-class games. Bowling around the wicket and short of a length, the left-armer got two deliveries to hold their line and feather the edge and have Stephen Parry (21) and Kyle Jarvis (0) caught behind by Ben Foakes. Chanderpaul hobbled on, however, planting two sixes off Scott Borthwick into the pavilion as he and last man Simon Kerrigan added 63 in 18 overs for the 10th wicket.

But Chanderpaul’s stoic knock ended when his tired and wristy drive against Gareth Batty looped to Scott Borthwick at extra cover, leaving Kerrigan unbeaten on 20. The veteran left-hander faced 328 balls and hit 21 fours and a brace of sixes.

Footitt, with five for 118, was the pick of the Surrey attack with Batty chipping in with three for 72.
