PORT-OF-SPAIN, Trinidad (CMC): Trinidad and Tobago's cricket authorities have assured that their national players involved in the abandoned tour of India will not face censure and will be considered for selection in the upcoming regional first-class season.

Azim Bassarath, president of the T&T Cricket Board, confirmed to the Trinidad Express newspaper that his board would not get involved in the selection process and would leave the matter of who represented the country up to the selectors.

"The selectors will decide who will play for Trinidad and Tobago. Nobody is going to interfere with the selection process," Bassarath explained.

"The policy of the board is not to direct selectors in terms of who they should select and so on. That has never been done in the past, and I am guaranteeing that it will never happen under my stewardship. The selectors can select them if they see fit."
