BBC London 94.9's Mark Church:
"Warwickshire are in a strong position at the end of the second day after excellent centuries from Jim Troughton and Chris Woakes.
"But an unbroken partnership of 83 between Rory Burns and Arun Harinath saw Surrey close the day strongly. Burns registered his second Championship 50 in as many games.
"Harinath, in his first Championship appearance of the season, was unbeaten on 44 and both played well in the face of some excellent Warwickshire bowling.
"Surrey know there is still a lot of work for them to do with the bat on the third day at Edgbaston."
