Derbyshire have the upper hand after day two. After making an impressive total of 492 all out, Surrey were 256 for 4, with Rikki Clarke and Azhar Mahmood at the crease.

Derbyshire had a bad start to their innings with Steve Stubbings falling early to Jimmy Ormond. However Michael Di Venuto and Chris Taylor led a recovery as they took the score to 101. Travis Brit and Hassan Adnan continued to dominate the Surrey bowlers as they added 83. Brit was unlucky not to reach 100 as he fell for 99, caught down the leg side by Batty, with Ormond picking up the wicket. Adnan and Botha then added 109. Unlike Brit, Botha was not to be denied three figures. But shortly after reaching the century, he fell to Nayan Doshi. Mo Sheikh then hit 51 not out to help Derbyshire score 492 all out, as they claimed full batting points. For Surrey Azhar Mahmood was the star bowler as he took 5 for 69.

Surrey had a good start as Newman and Batty put on 42 for the first wicket. Newman looked in good touch as he made 66 before falling to Steffan Jones. Butcher fell shortly after for just 2, which left Surrey 114 for 3. Mo Sheikh then took the key wicket of Ramparaksh for 71. Howver Rikki Clarke looked in fine form as he hit 55 from 72 balls. Azhar Mahmood scored a quick fire 31 when stumps were called.
