Kent players and coaching staff have taken to Twitter to express their anger at the ECB’s decision not to overturn the result of their disputed tie with Sussex.
A tweet from the Kent coach brands the ECB’s judgement “shameful”; saying that the spirit of cricket has taken a “U-Turn”; and also appears to question the honesty and integrity of the Sussex players and officials who responded to the ECB inquiry.
The tweet was then Favorited by two leading Kent players. (A “Favorite“, like a Facebook “Like“, allows a Twitter user to express agreement or sympathy with the opinion expressed in the original post.)
Although the accounts involved are not official “Kent CCC” accounts, they are not private either; and one is a publicly verified “Blue Tick” account, due to the the individual’s status as a contracted England player.

UPDATE – The two players who Favorited the tweet have since Un-Favorited it.
