Caribbean newspapers have reported that tensions between the WICB and the West Indies players have eased, following meetings over the weekend. That would mean West Indies’ scheduled tour to South Africa in December will go ahead without any hurdles.

According to the reports, the WICB and the West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA) will now relook into the players’ contracts, with the players now having a say in payment matters, and WIPA and its chief Wavell Hinds will continue to represent the players’ interests.

It was also reported that a three-man task force has been named to deal with the BCCI’s demands from the WICB. The committee reportedly comprises former West Indies cricketer and Barbados politician Wes Hall, Barbados chief justice and former prime minister David Simmons and lawyer and Trinidad & Tobago politician Kenneth Lalla, and will go to work immediately given the BCCI’s 15-day deadline for the WICB to respond to its claim of $41.97M.

The meeting was said to be attended by WICB president Dave Cameron, players Dwayne Bravo and Denesh Ramdin and the Reports also said that the players would not be punished for any of their acts that took place in India.

West Indies had withdrawn from their tour to India in October after the 4th ODI, with one ODI, one Twenty20 and three Tests still left, due to payment issues the players had with the board. The payment was not as per the Payment structure under the Memorandum of Understanding signed between the WICB and WIPA earlier in the year. During the tour to India ODI captain Bravo had written letters on the matter, on behalf of the players, to WIPA chief Hinds and the WICB, saying the players’ trust had been breached.
