Cricket: Cork remains defiant

DOMINIC CORK last night repeated his threat to leave Derbyshire, despite the county's committee backing down from its confrontation with him.

Cork had been told to decide by yesterday whether he wanted to continue as captain. But the ultimatum was withdrawn and committee member Les Elliott will now meet Cork in an attempt to resolve the matter.

Cork has agreed to the meeting, but has no intention of backing down. "My position is unchanged from what it was in October," he said. "Unless I am granted the authority other captains have been given, and which I was promised, and unless the two people I believe have undermined my position are removed from influence, I will seek to leave."
