Trinbago Knight Riders batsman William Perkins has been suspended from the rest of the Caribbean Premier League (CPL) tournament for a breach of his player contract.

During Trinbago Knight Riders' encounter against St Kitts and Nevis Patriots in Florida on Sunday, Perkins handed his Players/Match Official Access Pass to a third party.

This act of Perkins was found to be in breach of the clauses 10.1.1 and 10.1.2 of his player contract and the ICC’s Minimum Standards for Players.

The CPL security team and Richard Reynolds, the ICC Anti-Corruption Manager, obtained the pass of Perkins and hence he was immediately suspended.

The 29-year-old accepted the charges and will take no further part in the campaign after having featured in four games for the Trinbago Knight Riders in the 2016 CPL.

After having finished fourth in the points table, the defending champions Trinbago Knight Riders will now face the St Lucia Zouks in St Kitts on 4th August for the second Playoff match.
