The Eng­land and Wales Cricket Board is con­sid­er­ing an ap­peal by Mid­dle­sex over the points de­duc­tion which contributed to their rel­e­ga­tion. Mid­dle­sex were docked two points for a slow over-rate in their Spec­savers County Cham­pi­onship Di­vi­sion One match against Sur­rey in Au­gust – a match which was aban­doned when a cross­bow bolt was fired into the Oval. Mid­dle­sex were sub­se­quently rel­e­gated by one point after los­ing their fi­nal match of the sea­son to Som­er­set, who main­tained their Di­vi­sion One sta­tus as a re­sult of the vic­tory on Sept 28. The 2016 county champions have now lodged an ap­peal against the pun­ish­ment, which was im­posed on Sept 9.
