BCCI is likely to ask West Indies Cricket Board a sum of about 400 crores( US$ 65 million) as the damage caused because of West Indies team going back mid way in the tour. West Indies was scheduled to play 5 ODIs, 3 Tests and one T20 match but due to the dispute with the players over the new payment structure, the West Indies team went back after the 4th ODI.

The final decision on the claim will be taken by the BCCI working committee when they meet in Hyderabad on 21st of this month.  BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel told ESPN Cricinfo that the working committee has asked the members of the legal team of BCCI to calculate the losses and the compensation which will be demanded by the BCCI. West Indies Cricket Board had entered into an agreement with BCCI and since they went mid way because of internal issues, they will have to compensate for that.

BCCI has lost  revenue of 17 match days as a result of this but since Sri lankan team is coming to compensate for this . Sri Lankan team will play 5 ODIs but even then BCCI will undergo significant loss and they will now revenue of 12 match days.

As per an estimate made by BCCI earlier, each match day of India – West Indies series would have got them around 33 crores and this will mean that BCCI lost around 396 crores as a result of this, considering 12 match days.

BCCI will mainly lose it’s revenue coming from broadcaster’s advertising since it is on per match day basis as the new schedule will be 12 match days short. Other major revenues are per match basis, no matter whether it’s an ODI or Tests or T20 , so it won’t affect BCCI as Sri Lanka will play 5 ODIs.
