Rikki Clarke chalks up career milestone as Surrey surge ahead


Veteran claims 3-34 as Northants are bowled out 81 in arrears, Amla and Jacks build lead

Surrey 252 and 102 for 4 (Amla 26*, Procter 2-24) lead Northamptonshire 171 (Zaib 37, Clarke 3-34) by 183 runs

Veteran all-rounder Rikki Clarke chalked up the 800th wicket of his professional career to help put Surrey in control of their LV= Insurance County Championship clash against Northamptonshire.

Clarke, who will retire just before turning 40 later this month, took 3 for 34 as the home side were bowled out for 171 at Wantage Road, a first-innings deficit of 81.

Luke Procter struck back by dismissing both Surrey openers second time around, but Hashim Amla‘s unbeaten 26 steered his side to 102 for 4 and an overall lead of 183 at stumps.

Surrey’s director of cricket Alec Stewart and Northamptonshire coach David Ripley took turns officiating at square leg after umpire Russell Warren was taken ill, with Martin Saggers later drafted in to replace him.
