Embattled West Indies and Queen’s Park off-spinner Sunil Narine will play in the 2016 domestic cricket tournament in Trinidad.

An executive member of the TTCB, said yesterday that Narine’s ban by the ICC was brought up at the last executive meeting of the board, but there was never any intention to ban him from domestic tournament. 

“Narine is from Trinidad and Tobago and falls under the umbrella of the TTCB. We just could not bury our heads and not discuss the matter concerning Narine. It was brought up as a matter of interest.”

Narine was reported to be in danger of being banned at home, since the matter was up for discussion at the TTCB’s executive meeting on Tuesday night. 

“We saw the story and it is total rubbish, it is just misleading and mischievous. The matter was brought up, because the ICC has indicated that the call to allow Narine to play or not has to come from the respective boards. The matter has been referred to the National League Committee and it is just a discussion that will take place between the committee and officials of Queen’s Park Cricket Club.”

The domestic tournament gets going on January 30 and Narine is expected to line-up with the Parkites.
