Som­er­set are pre­pared for a le­gal bat­tle should Mid­dle­sex win their ap­peal against the points de­duc­tion which con­trib­uted to their rel­e­ga­tion from Spec­savers County Cham­pi­onship Di­vi­sion One. Mid­dle­sex were docked two points for a slow over-rate dur­ing their match against Sur­rey in Au­gust, which was aban­doned when a cross­bow bolt was fired into the Oval. The county were rel­e­gated by one point af­ter los­ing their fi­nal match against Som­er­set, who main­tained their top-flight sta­tus with the win. The Eng­land and Wales Cricket Board on Wed­nes­day con­firmed the 2016 cham­pi­ons had ap­pealed against the pun­ish­ment and that prompted Som­er­set to con­tact their lawyers.
