Experienced Guyanese batsman Ramnaresh Sarwan seems set to miss the West Indies’ upcoming engagements after striking a deal with English county Leicestershire as their overseas player for the upcoming season.
The club announced that it had signed the former West Indies middle order batsman for the entire 2012 season subject to approval from the West Indies Cricket Board and the United Kingdom immigration authorities.
“We are delighted to have completed the signing of Ramnaresh Sarwan,” said Chief Executive Officer Mike Siddall.
“He has an impressive Test record and his availability to play all forms of the game for us during the 2012 season in an added bonus,” he said.
Sarwan’s commitment to the club rules him out of the Australia tour of the Caribbean, which runs from March 16 to April 27 and the subsequent tour of England that bowls off May 5 and ends June 24.
West Indies also host New Zealand in the Caribbean from June 23 to Aug. 2.
