Uh oh. To be fair they may have a fair point. Though they have been aware of the points deduction for some time and should have made their case much earlier.
Nevertheless us carrot crunchers in the south west will be a bit nervous.

Pffft!  I'm a Middlesex fan, but I say take the drop like men, should've won at lest one of the games they drew and should've batted better through the season to pick up more bonus points.

I wouldn't actually want to get re-instated on this basis, I'd rather come back up on merit.

There is no chance of getting the 2pts reinstated.
1. If it had rained they would have been deducted points
2. Ditto for bad light.

At the time Middlesex were 180 ahead with 33 overs left in the game, they weren't in a position to declare.

The talk is frustration and emotion. The fact is they should have bowled at the correct over rate or won a game they drew.

What are you doing on here - aren't you on the 'Isle of Fernando'?

Absolutely and today's news says the appeal has failed. One in the eye for those who may think Strauss/Fraser/Lords have an influence down South.

It's Div 2 and they will have to crack on next year and do it on the field. all sorts of things may come up during the season if they uphold appeals all over the shop it's a mockery of promotion and relegation.

And I'm a Middlesex fan too!
