BARBADOS won’t be hosting any of the four Test matches when India come to the Caribbean next month for a much anticipated seven-week cricket tour.

But a high-ranking official of the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) says there was no politics in Barbados’ exclusion after  Antigua, Jamaica, St Lucia and Trinidad ad Tobago were chosen as the host venues.

The venues were confirmed yesterday when the WICB and the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) jointly unveiled the long-awaited itinerary for the series, which runs from July 21 to August 22.

“It has absolutely nothing to do with any rift between the president [Dave Cameron] and anyone in Barbados. There is no political reason. That’s doesn’t come into the allocation of matches,” WICB chief executive officer Michael Muirhead said in a telephone interview with WEEKEND SPORT yesterday.
