The issue regarding the name of the Caribbean Premier League franchise Red Steel has been resolved and the team will once again be called "Trinidad & Tobago Red Steel", the CPL has said.

The CPL had earlier agreed to omit the words "Trinidad & Tobago" from the name, based on a request from the Minister of Sport Anil Roberts. According to Roberts, the use of the country name infringed "on the protocols surrounding the use of the name and the sovereignty of the nation".
