Kieron Pollard barred by WICB

West Indies all-rounder Kieron Pollard has been denied a no-objection certificate by the West Indies Cricket Board, which means he will not be able to compete in the upcoming Ram Slam a Twenty20 league organised by Cricket South Africa.

This has come after the WICB decided on levying a 20% contract fee on any Caribbean player wishing to play in a T20 tournament held outside the country.

The all-rounder signed a two-year contract with the South African side Cape Cobras was informed of the board’s decision by Chief Executive Officer Michael Muirhead.

Pollard was informed that he would not be granted an NOC until the WICB had received an acceptance of the fee from various boards.

This has attracted criticism from the Federation of International Players Association who have called the decision a “Restraint of Trade” and warned it could attract legal challenges.
