Matt Henry and Colin de Grandhomme have combined to put New Zealand A in a powerful position in the final match of their British cricket tour today, leaving Surrey on the ropes in London.

Opening bowler Henry took 5-18 as New Zealand bundled out Surrey for just 101 inside 33 overs in the three-day match at The Oval.

De Grandhomme picked up 2-16 and then produced a useful double with the bat, helping New Zealand battled through to 202-7 by stumps.

De Grandhomme, coming in at No 5, scored 81 off 90 balls, hitting 11 fours and two sixes.

The New Zealand top order struggled, but de Grandhomme held firm and got some late support from spinner Mark Craig who scored a patient 28 as they added 69 for the sixth wicket.
