This is a serious question, so I hope Glamorgan fans don't take offence, but can anyone explain why, if you prepare a pitch that unduly favours bowlers, you risk a points deduction, whereas if you prepare a pitch that unduly favours batsmen, there seems to be no sanction?
You could see this being abused at the end of the season, if the home team could secure promotion by simply preventing a win for the visitors.
If the current Northants team can score 750, it cannot possibly be an acceptable playing surface. I was pleased we didn't break the record for our highest score, as that was in a proper match which we ended up winning (Notts 527, Northants 781-7, Kumble bowled Notts out again - a bit different to this latest fiasco).
