Surrey and Glamorgan settle for draw at The Oval
|LV County Championship Division Two, The Oval|
|Glamorgan 419 & 259-4 drew with Surrey 284 & 194-1|
|Glamorgan 10pts, Surrey 7pts|
Jason Roy hit his maiden century as Surrey played out an entertaining draw with Glamorgan at The Oval.
With much of day three lost to rain, a result was never likely but centurions Gareth Rees (126) and Roy (106) ensured that the game did not fizzle out.
Resuming on 46-0, Rees helped Glamorgan race to 259-4 before declaring, with Mike Powell unbeaten on 67.
Skipper Rory Hamilton-Brown (68) then helped Roy guide Surrey to 194-1.
That was in response to a severe target of 395 off a minimum of 50 overs.
Roy, primarily a wicketkeeper but deployed as a declaration bowler, had earlier claimed his maiden scalps in first-class cricket, Ben Wright caught behind, and Mark Wallace, who drilled to Jade Dernbach at mid-off.
POST MATCH REACTION
Surrey batsman Jason Roy told BBC Radio London 94.9:
"I was really nervous as I was getting there so it was great to get to the century with a six.
"It was a dream come true to share the moment with Mark Ramprakash.
"It's been a great day. I'm really pleased to have taken my first wicket as well."
Glamorgan coach Matthew Mott told BBC Wales:
"It was pretty disappointing we lost so much cricket, which made it difficult to force a result.
"The wicket played a few tricks but also when guys got going the scoring rate was pretty rapid. That made the declaration a difficult one to calculate, but I think it was the right call because at one stage they really looked like they could mow it down.
"But overall it was pretty good - the double century from Alviro Petersen was his best, a great hundred by Gareth Rees and I thought our young seamers got a good hit at a very good Surrey batting line-up."
