Tamil Nadu won’t release Sandeep Warrier for India nets during Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy | Cricket News

CHENNAI: Medium-pacer Sandeep Warrier, who switched allegiance from Kerala to Tamil Nadu ahead of this season, was named as one of the net bowlers in the Indian squad for the first two Tests against England to be held here from February 5. Members of the squad will enter the bio-bubble in batches in the coming days. However, it has been learned that the Tamil Nadu Cricket Association (TNCA) wants Warrier to enter the bubble only after finishing his current assignment — the ongoing Syed Mushtaq Ali Trophy.
The premier domestic T20 tournament concludes on January 31.
“Tamil Nadu is currently in the knockouts of the competition in Ahmedabad and Warrier remains a key member of the side. We are keen to have him for the remainder of the tournament,” a TNCA source told TOI on Wednesday.
TNCA has already sent in a request to the BCCI, seeking permission for Warrier to join the bio-bubble at a later date.
“We are yet to hear from the BCCI but are hopeful that they will agree to our request. Warrier is already in a bio-bubble at the Syed Mushtaq Ali T20s, and for him it will be a case of leaving one bio-bubble and entering another,” the source pointed out.
If Tamil Nadu make the Syed Mushtaq Ali tournament final, Warrier will enter Team India’s bio-bubble only by February 1. It remains to be seen if BCCI will accept TNCA’s demand.
TN made the Syed Mushtaq Ali knockouts — winning all their 5 league phase matches. Warrier featured in all the matches — scalping 5 wickets at an economy of 7.27.
