Narine to miss NZ Test series after putting Windies second

Update : 31 May 2014, 09:16 PM

West Indies spinner Sunil Narine will miss next month’s three-test series against New Zealand after opting to stay with his Indian Premier League team, the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has said.

The “Windies First Policy” of the WICB required the 26-year-old spinner to join the training camp by Sunday, also the day when his Twenty20 team plays the final.

“The onus of the WICB is to protect the integrity of international cricket at all times,” the board’s Director of Cricket Richard Pybus said in a statement.

“International cricket, and specifically test cricket, is priority and requires dedicated preparation which is integral to team success.

“The WICB policy requires players to commit to sufficient preparation leading in to a series as part of a culture of excellence,” Pybus added.

Narine has played six tests claiming 21 wickets, 18 of them coming against New Zealand.
