Somerset collected 24 points for "poor ground" against Essex


Somerset finishes second in county champion after losing to Essex in September, failing to win his girlfriend title

Somerset racked up 24 points after being found guilty of preparing "bad" ground for last year's district champion decider against Essex.

Hearing the Lord found the wick ready for the September game had "excessive bounce unevenness".

The deduction of points will take effect in the 2020 champions season, but 12 points are suspended for two years.

Somerset has 14 days to appeal the England and Wales board's decision to the Cricket board.
