Batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan has withdrawn from the Trinidad & Tobago squad for the Professional Cricket League four-day competition due to personal reasons and will return to Guyana. Sarwan was T&T’s overseas pick during the player draft organised in October and was one of the players who was not selected by his territorial squad of Guyana.
Sarwan had missed T&T’s opening game against Barbados last week and was expected to sit out the second-round match against Leeward Islands, which starts on November 21. The Trinidad & Tobago Cricket Board has said it will consider options regarding Sarwan’s replacement and hoped that the batsman will return to the team for the one-day competition.
“The T&TCB said it is their sincerest hope that the former West Indies Test player can resolve the issues he currently faces with a view to his possible return for T&T in the Nagico Super50 limited-overs regional tournament in January,” the board said in a release.
Sarwan had captained Leicestershire in five championship matches during the English domestic season this year before a back injury forced him to return home.
