Earlier Ryan Patel, playing in just his second first-class game, scored 81 and put on 74 runs with Ben Foakes (47) and help the visitors post 200.Beginning the day on 16-0 after just five overs were bowled on day one, Surrey slipped to 35-3 with Hampshire pace bowlers Kyle Abbott (2-31) and Fidel Edwards (3-70) causing problems.But the composed Patel pushed Surrey’s score on alongside Foakes before the latter was caught at mid-wicket off the bowling of Liam Dawson (4-22).
