Somerset are getting ready to take legal movement against the England and Wales Cricket Board will have to Middlesex’s appeal over a points deduction reach good fortune.
Middlesex have been relegated to Division Two after finishing one degree beneath Somerset.
They have been docked two points for a slow over value right through their game at Surrey in August, which used to be as soon as abandoned when a crossbow bolt used to be as soon as fired into The Oval.
A choice on Middlesex’s appeal may well be made by way of the ECB next week.
More to use.
