The hand-outs released by the organisers have the names of India S. Sreesanth, Irfan Pathan (captain of one of the two teams), Harbhajan Singh and Yuvraj Singh names.

It is not known whether these players have received NOCs from the BCCI. It may, however, be recalled here that India's Yusuf Pathan, the brother of Irfan Pathan was recently denied such permission to play in Hong-Kong.

The other players named in the hand-outs are Misbah ul Haq (captain of the opposite team), Shahid Afridi, Abdul Razaq, Sohail Tanveer, Rana Naveed, Tilakratne Dilshan, Mohammad Ashraful, Marlon Samuels, Mohammad Sharif and Marlon Samuels |(West India).

Sreesanth is believed to have consented to participate in the tournament. His appeal against the BCCI for the NOC to play in Scotland will now be heard in the High Court on May 22, when Vinod Rai, the chairman of the Supreme Court appointee Committee of Administrators (COA) is requested to remain present.
