    Surrey have set a new record for the highest total in first-class cricket without a batter scoring a century.

    On day two of their English County Championship Division One clash with Kent, they declared on 671/9 with seven batters scoring half centuries.

    Three of those – Ollie Pope, Ben Foakes and Jaime Overton – lost their wickets in the “nervous nineties.”

    According to a tweet by the club, they needed to score 610 as a team to break the world record.

    BBC Sport says the record that has been broken is 609 made by Namibia against Uganda in 2010.
