Worcestershire say they have no problem with skipper Vikram Solanki signing up for the rebel Indian Cricket League this winter.
Solanki is the latest English player to sign up for the unsanctioned Twenty20 tournament, which will be held in India from 30th November-16th December.
Pears skipper Solanki is joining fellow county captains Darren Maddy and Paul Nixon, from Warwickshire and Leicestershire respectively, in the rebel ICL.
County's had been worrying that players could find themselves, and their clubs, banned from the official sanctioned 'Champions League' of cricket if they turned out for the rebel ICL.
County's are worried about their participation in the £1 Million event being organized by the Board of Control for Cricket in India, which is archly opposed to the ICL, but most county cricketers are free agents during the winter.
Worcestershire chief executive Mark Newton has been in touch with Solanki, and says that the club have no problems in him heading out to the lucrative ICL in India.
"We have no problems about him signing at all, and it does not affect his contract with us," said Newton.
"Vikram is free to seek employment as he sees best, as anyone else in this country is, and we do not want to get in the way of that.
"He has to make the best of his talent in the best way possible while understanding the implications to him personally.
"Therefore I would not stop anyone doing what they want to do to make the most of their career."
Newton added: "As he has said to us, if he wants to force himself into the England squad for the tour of New Zealand, this is the only meaningful cricket available to him and can act to keep his name in the frame."
The lucrative offers are hard to turn down for the English players, and Newton added that it would be very tough on the counties if they were banned from the Champions League.
"As far as the club is concerned, the Champions League is way down the road, but we are aware of the possible repercussions," Newton added.
"I think it would be a very tough stance to take."
