Ade - you do a good job in painting a sympathetic picture for what your hierarchy were faced with but I still believe the game was up and the two points were gone once they accepted the ECB's decision, even though they did so reluctantly. The acceptance was the mistake. Anything being raised and sought now should have been said to the ECB instead of the reluctant acceptance and at that time.

I'll ask you something now about the Arrowgate game if I may. It may not have merit but it's a genuine question. If there had been no arrow fired and the game had continued with Middlesex declaring and then using slow bowlers to rush through their overs and catch up the rate, is there any chance that Surrey (were Sanga and Roy playing?) could have knocked off the runs? If that might have been the case, you would have avoided the two point deduction but might not have got the five for a draw. Just wondering and a long way from being my point before the poster in Argyll seizes on it. Thanks.
