At least three Full Member boards have written to the ICC expressing concern over their current players asking for no objection certificates to participate in the Masters Champions League (MCL), which was approved as a Twenty20 event meant strictly for retired players. 
 
The ICC has warned that "actions of those involved with the MCL in seeking current player participation" is "unacceptable".
 
It is understood that the three aggrieved members are the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB), Cricket South Africa (CSA), and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).
Kraigg Brathwaite's unbeaten 80 off 120 balls followed up a dominant spin bowling performance by Barbados to see off Windward Islands by seven wickets in the second Nagico Super50 semi-final on Thursday night at Queen's Park Oval to set up a rematch of the 2014 final between Barbados and reigning title-holders Trinidad & Tobago.
 
Eight of the ten wickets in the Windwards innings fell to spin as they struggled to 175 after choosing to bat first. 
 
Sulieman Benn claimed his third four-for of the tournament to lead the way in the field for Barbados but was well-supported by offspinner Ashley Nurse and fellow left-armer Jomel Warrican who took two wickets each.
 
Live coverage of the final is on Talk City 91.1FM beginning at 115pm on Saturday.
Veteran midfielder Marvin Oliver has vowed to take legal actions against Central FC after he claimed to have been sacked without reason recently.

The letter quoted club coach Dale Saunders as saying the firing was based on a request by the player, as he wanted to move on to another club.

Narine was banned from international cricket after he was called during a One-day International series in Sri Lanka last November.

The T&T team is scheduled to depart on Sunday for Houston for a training camp ahead of their opening game against Guatemala at the BBVA Compass Stadium on February 11th.
