T20 team pulled
A REPRESENTATIVE Barbados cricket team was withdrawn from the Barbados Twenty20 Cup two-day tournament involving six English counties for reasons that remain unclear.
The two-day tournament, organized by the Barbados Tourism Authority(BTA), went ahead yesterday at the 3Ws Oval without the participation of the Barbados team.
SUNSPORT investigations revealed that the Barbados Cricket Association (BCA) did not agree to participate in the Twenty20 segment of the competition but have made a side available to participate in a two-day match later in the week.
Efforts yesterday to ascertain from BCA officials the circumstances that led to the non-participation of the Barbados team proved futile. (HG/TC)
