In a bid to keep their best players available for the the Champions League, TTCB President Azim Bassarath is asking the Trinidad and Tobago government to reconsider scrapping the Elite Assistance Programme for cricketers.

"For the past two years that we went to the Champions League, T&T didn't have their best players available. This year 2013 I want to ask for the assistance of the Government that these representations have to be made to the IPL people in India. Then what I think we should do is that as early as possible put something in place where we can negotiate with the personnel of the Indian Premier League, asking and begging and requesting that we have available to us all our international stars"
