Former West Indies captain and middle-order batsman, Ramnaresh Sarwan‘s county future with Leicestershire is still uncertain.  The initial signings of eight Leicestershire players have already been done. But their overseas player Ramnaresh Sarwan’s future with the county team is undecided.

 

Leicestershire  have already signed Jigar Naik, Rob Taylor, Tom Wells, Rob Sayer, Ben Raine, James Sykes and Lewis Hill for the next season. Left-arm fast bowler Atif Sheikh who played the practice game against the tour​ing Indians at Leicester has also agreed a deal, but Sarwan’s deal, which will end in 2014,​ is yet to be renewed.

 

“Talks with Ronnie [Sarwan] are ongoing,” director of cricket Phil Whitticase told BBC Radio Leicester.

 

“It has been a bit frustrating for everybody that Ronnie has had that back injury and that has led to him not being on the field as often as we would have liked him to have been. I think that has also affected the performances he has put in when he has been on the field so those are discussions that we are having,” said Whitticase.

 

However Sarwan did not feature in the game against the Indians. He has played 87 Tests, 181 O​ne-D​ay I​nternationals (ODIs) ​and 18 T20 games for the West Indies. Currently he is not in the frame of schemes for the West Indian think-tank. His last appearance in the international cricket was in 2013.
