Ecb Logo Gutter Icon 135x160

An ECB pitch panel comprising Tony Pigott and Jack Birkenshaw (pitch liaison officers) was convened to consider the pitch used for the LV= County Championship match at Lord’s commencing on Sunday 19 June between Middlesex and Kent.

After interviewing the umpires, the captain and coach of both teams and the head groundsman at Lord’s, the pitch panel determined that the pitch should be rated "below average".

No penalty is therefore imposed.
