Ramdin back for T&T
T&T’s captain Denesh Ramdin will be back in action as the local squad begin preparation for the Champions League Twenty20 tournament in India in September. The T&T Cricket Board has selected 29 players to attend practice sessions.The first session will take place this morning at the Sir Frank Worrell Development Centre beginning at 9 am. Ramdin will be looking to put his recent suspension behind him and focus the premier club competition. The West Indies wicketkeeper was suspended for two one-day internationals after being found guilty of “conduct that is contrary to the spirit of the game” after claiming a catch which he had dropped.
The incident happened during the West Indies’ Champions Trophy win over Pakistan on June 7. In the ninth over of Pakistan’s innings at Edgbaston, Ramdin celebrated catching the opposing captain, Misbah-ul-Haq, off a Kemar Roach delivery, but the on-field umpires called for a review and spotted the ball had slipped from his grasp and hit the ground. The 28-year-old, who pleaded not guilty to the charge laid by all four umpires, was fined his entire match fee following an ICC disciplinary hearing, which he did not appeal.
