World T20 Champion squad players of West Indies are all set to make this international return, as their pay despite with the Cricket West Indies (CWI) is about to reach its conclusion.
Cricket West Indies (CWI) showed it was willing to welcome back top players when it cleared Darren Bravo to play in all forms of cricket after the batsman apologised to the board and its president, Dave Cameron, for a Twitter outburst.
Bravo was suspended and sent home from the tour of Zimbabwe last November after he called Cameron a “Big idiot” on social media in relation to a disagreement over his playing contract.
According to media that resolution was not the only positive news for the side, though, with former captain Gayle, spinner Narine, and all-rounders Kieron Pollard and Dwayne Bravo all said to be nearing a truce with the CWI.
Players have been embroiled in contractual disputes with the board for several years with the team even abandoning a tour of India midway through their 2014 series over a payment structure row.
At present, CWI only select players for their international sides if they feature in corresponding domestic competitions, a policy that leads to many high-profile absentees who instead prefer to ply their trade in overseas T20 leagues.
That stance now appears to be relaxing, which could result in leading cricketers making themselves available for the limited-overs section of the side’s England tour starting next month.
