New Zealand A grabbed control of their match against Surrey on a soggy second day at The Oval in London on Tuesday.

Only 25 overs were played on a day where showers and bad light intervened.

New Zealand didn't press home their first innings advantage fully, losing their final three wickets for just nine runs to grab a lead of 110.

And by the time stumps were called early they had whittled out three Surrey batsmen with the home side's second innings score at 72.

That left Surrey still 38 runs in deficit with seven wickets left.

Matt Henry, Hamish Bennett and Scott Kuggeleijn all took a wicket as the New Zealand pace attack kept the pressure on the Surrey batsmen.

New Zealand were looking for better conditions on the final day to wrap up a successful tour of Britain with victory in their last match.
