Oddly on the front page header of the Guardian there is a picture of Jonathan Trott alongside “Cricket, breakdowns and burnout”. Who needs yesterday’s news?

On the Sports section’s front page, the main stories are about Trott (again), the sacking of two football managers, a feature on Gareth Southgate a photo and story about Tyson Fury (no, not the Northants fast bowler) and at the foot of the page “Collingwood describes Durham’s relegation as a kick in the teeth”.

Ali Martin tells how Collingwood “expressed his shock and anger” at the “unprecedented punishment”, telling Martin that “the players are seriously unhappy” while adding that they are “100% innocent”. Martin says that while other counties have larger debts (eg Yorkshire £22m) the “issue” for Durham “lies in the management of the debt”. There is also, according to Martin, a view from the ECB that “the punishment falls within its competition and financial regulations”. We are told that Hampshire’s survival “has angered Kent”and their Chairman had expected to put their “case” to the ECB.
