Match Reaction after draw at the Kia Oval

Lancashire Head Coach Glen Chapple said he was happy with his side's fightback after losing five first innings wickets on the first morning of the match. Surrey went on to bat out the final day to claim a draw after the hosts were made to follow-on on Day Three.

He said, "We had a very tough first hour in the game but from that point on have fought hard for four days and I'm really pleased with the performance.

"To make 470 on there after losing those five early wickets was a great effort thanks to that fantastic partnership between Jordan and Shiv.

"We can take good confidence from here and the fact we've taken 12 bonus points from out first couple of games.

Meanwhile, Surrey's Scott Borthwick was equally delighted by his match-saving maiden hundred for Surrey and his double-century stand in tandem with Kumar Sangakkara.

He said: "This was something I've dreamt of for the past five months. It was a good feeling and I think we needed it as a team to bounce back from day three.

"Batting with Sangakkara and watching him go about his business in building and innings was unbelievable. It was the best seat in the house with him batting at the other end."
