Surrey's Sangakkara scored an unbeaten 180 against Yorkshire

Kumar Sangakkara's unbeaten 180 put Surrey in charge against Yorkshire in Division One of the Specsavers County Championship here yesterday.

The former Sri Lanka Test batsman hit 21 fours and four sixes in a four-hour stay at the crease as he became the first batsman to pass 1,000 championship runs this season to help Surrey declare on 516 for seven.

In a rain-hit match Yorkshire were 21 for one in reply at the close, having lost opener Adam Lyth to trail by 489 runs.
