Karun Nair on Wednesday served a reminder to his prowess with an unbeaten 144 for Northamptonshire against table-toppers Surrey in a County Championship Division One contest, here at the Oval. Nair resumed the day from 51 and compiled his knock off 238 balls as Northamptonshire reached 351 for nine, before rain and bad light forced an early end.

Nair, who is out of India reckoning, smashed 22 fours and two sixes during his innings.
