County Championship: Surrey lifted by Kumar Sangakkara ton


A century from Sri Lanka maestro Kumar Sangakkara moved Surrey a step closer to the Division Two title.

Lancashire added 131 with their final five wickets to reach 272 all out, with 65 shared by last-wicket pair Simon Kerrigan and James Anderson (42).

Seventeen-year-old Sam Curran took a career-best 5-67 but Surrey chose not to enforce the follow-on.

Sangakkara, 37, struck his 54th first-class hundred as Surrey set a target of 492, with Lancashire closing on 22-0.
