Kent hit out at England and Wales Cricket Board for promotion snub following controversial financial bail-out of struggling Durham
Kent chairman George Kennedy claims the England and Wales Cricket Board has dealt his county 'an unfair hand' by declining to consider them for promotion in place of Durham.
The ECB agreed a bail-out for financially-stricken Durham on a series of conditions including relegation from Division One of the Specsavers County Championship.
In a statement on Monday, the ECB also announced Hampshire will instead remain in the top-flight despite finishing below Durham in the second relegation position.
