Mid­dle­sex de­serve drop

The Cricket Paper - - NEWS & VIEWS -

I AGREE with your cor­re­spon­dent Gra­ham Shaw. I at­tended the fi­nal match of the sea­son at Taun­ton and Mid­dle­sex em­ployed the same tac­tics as they had done at Sur­rey.

I am sur­prised they were not de­ducted a fur­ther two points for such time wast­ing, ac­tions which led to ad­verse com­ments from the crowd. Any de­ci­sion about pos­si­ble re­ver­sal of the penalty de­ci­sion should have been known be­fore the end of the sea­son. To do so now would have been un­fair on Som­er­set who may well have used a dif­fer­ent strat­egy had they known this was likely to hap­pen. Mid­dle­sex got their just desserts at Taun­ton but the ECB needs to im­prove its de­ci­sion mak­ing.

DAVID ALBROW, Taun­ton
