English cricket bosses are bidding to find a solution to the money problems that have threatened the future of Durham County Cricket Club.
Last week Durham agreed a financial aid package with the English Cricket Board and were relegated as part of a range of sanctions.
But deals still need to be worked out with the club's other creditors and the ECB has asked them to support their suggested solution.
One of the club's creditors is Durham County Council:
We need to put that in front of out members and they need to weigh up the pros and cons of what's in that letter. We'll look to make a decision as quickly as possible around that. We'll be balancing the money we're owed with keeping a viable cricket club, because the best chance we have of getting our money back is making sure first class cricket stays in the north east.
Durham will be relegated to Division Two of the County Championship and start the 2017 season with a 48-point penalty in this competition.Read the full story ›

At 31 years and 157 days, England captain Cook has displaced India great Sachin Tendulkar as the youngest player to reach five-figures in Tests.
