Why did two of Durham’s best players choose to head to the Oval?
The latest news is why did Durham’s former players Mark Stoneman and Scott Borthwick choose to play for Surrey? (see County Championship 2017: Can Surrey derail the Yorkshire Express?). The affects of the ECB’s unfair sanctions against the club are already being seen. It’s an especially poor decision when you consider (as this article points out): “It hasn’t escaped the attention of many that Durham by contrast have provided more homegrown players for England than most.”
If we don’t rise to the challenge of saving DCCC, it’s not just Durham that will suffer – but England.
