All-rounder Kieron Pollard has been granted a No Objection Certificate (NOC) to play in the upcoming Ram Slam T20 competition in South Africa, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has confirmed.
The confirmation from WICB president Michael Muirhead on Tuesday contradicts earlier media reports that Pollard was denied an NOC for the tournament starting on Friday, reports CMC.
During an interview on Massy United Insurance’s Line & Length Network, Muirhead said it was never the board’s intention not to grant Pollard an NOC, but rather explain to him why the process on this occasion was taking longer than usual.
“It was not denying him any NOC, it was explaining to him why it was taking longer. Normally, we would have responded so in seven days he would have gotten it,” explained Muirhead on Tuesday.
“But I think it went over. But before the seven days expired I said let me explain to him why it is taking a little longer time and it is because we have written to all the boards, the presidents and CEOs.”
