I think they would be daft to give the docked points back. Plus Northants missed promotion after points deducted would have seen Them promoted if they kept them. Dangerous ground.http://www.espncricinfo.com/story/_/id/ ... ion-furore
Can't be having Somerset relegated retrospectively from here, surely. The whole dynamic of the last match could have been completely different. Any appeal should have been lodged and dealt with prior to the final game.
Perhaps an appeal panel of Strauss gatting and Fraser might come up with a sensible decision.
But frankly if I was involved I'd say leave alone now. Retrospective action will see Hants then appeal if they get relegated instead as they may have played differently on the last day
