The somewhat unexpected exit of Royal Challengers Bangalore from the play-off stage of the Indian Premier League yesterday has now made pacer Ravi Rampaul available for national selection ahead of the forthcoming Champions League Twenty20 tournament, which is scheduled to bowl off in India, in September.

A stern knock of 47 from Parthiv Patel and a strong spell of two for 24 from Dale Steyn handed Sunrisers Hyderabad a much-needed 23-run win over the Rajasthan Royals. This crucial win propelled them ahead of Rampaulís Bangalore-based team on the standings, and shot them into fourth position and a confirmed spot in the decorated competitionís semi-final stages.

Rampaulís exit has now made the robust fast bowler available to be selected to represent the red, white and black. He now joins off-spinner Sunil Narine in the selection process, since Narineís Kolkota Knight Riders were also eliminated from the competition last week.

Rampaul has been injury-prone over the past few months but has shown significant signs of improvement in his recent matches for Bangalore. His availability to the ďRed ForceĒ now expands TT captain denesh Ramdinís bowling options for the India tournament.

When the revelation was made of Narineís possibility to be selected, several Trinidad and Tobago Cricket Board members heaped praises on his availability to the squad. Now, Rampaulís presence is expected to boost TTís chances in the gameís shortest version.

Players that would be unavailable for national selection are Dwayne Bravo, Kieron Pollard, Kevon Cooper and Samuel Badree. The quartet will represent their IPL teams in the Champions League as they have place din the top four. Bravoís Chennai Super Kings are atop the standings, Pollardís Mumbai Indians sit in runner-up position and Cooper/ Badreeís Rajasthan Royals are presently third, with Sunrisers Hyderabad in fourth spot.
