England's Twenty20 clash against a Stanford Super Stars XI remains under threat after legal wrangles affecting the event continued on Tuesday.
The planned match is due to be played on November 1, with around £500,000 per player up for grabs for the victorious team.
However, the West Indies Cricket Board may be forced to withdraw their sanction for the match following their arbitration case with telecommunications company Digicel in London's High Court.
Digicel took legal action ahead of the match between the Stanford Super Stars XI and England, claiming they had branding rights because of their overall sponsorship with the WICB.
The WICB believe they have lost the case against Digicel and expect to be forced to remove their sanction for the game or face being in breach of their contract with Digicel.
If the match is no longer to be sanctioned by the WICB, that could result in senior West Indies players being prevented from playing in the match, thus denying it much of its appeal and credibility.
WICB chief executive Dr Donald Peters said: "We understand the arbitrator has ruled against the West Indies Cricket Board and at this point we are trying to evaluate what the terms of the ruling are before we make any statement."
There may still be further efforts at finding a way around the differences between the WICB and Digicel, which could also involve match organiser Sir Allen Stanford, the Texan billionaire.
The root of the dispute has been the claim by Digicel that they have branding rights for the game under the terms of their sponsorship contract with the WICB, which they extended until 2012 in July.
Digicel's stance has caused issue with the match organisers, Stanford 20/20, who would rather find their own sponsors for the match and stress the match is not an official West Indies fixture, and have claimed Digicel's deal should not apply.
