WICB balks after Chanderpaul says he was forced to retire

Former West Indies standout Shivnarine Chanderpaul says he felt forced to retire from international cricket by the West Indies Cricket Board.

The WICB said he did so on his own accord.

Chanderpaul was given a No Objection Certificate by the WICB in order to play in England’s Masters Champions League but he had to call it quits in order to get it.

“I was given a No Objection Certificate by WICB with a clause in it that I retire on the 23rd,” Chanderpaul told “If I didn’t announce my retirement they would have taken it back.”

The WICB responded in part:

“…players were well aware of their decisions to retire from international and therefore allowing them to be eligible for participation in the inaugural tournament. The MCL is an approved tournament of the International Cricket Council and the rules clearly states that the participants, to be eligible, must have retired from international cricket.”
