After the abrupt ending of the recent Tour of West Indies in India, most of the fans of the game were disheartened. But most of the losses were incurred by the BCCI that lost around 400 Crore from this event. Today, the members of BCCI unanimously decided to take legal action against West Indies Cricket Board and to suspend all cricket tours with West Indies. Commenting on this development, BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel said “BCCI will initiate legal proceedings against West Indies Cricket Board due to the abrupt cancellation of this tour. All Bilateral tours between BCCI and WICB stand suspended.

A statement released by BCCI also shed light on the upcoming Sri Lanka’s tour of India that was hastily arranged to save some of the losses incurred by the back out of WICB. Appreciating the Sri Lankan Cricket Board, the BCCI Statement narrated “The Members appreciated the gesture of Sri Lankan Cricket Board for having accepted our request to play 5 ODIs starting from 2nd of November 2014, at such a short notice. This tour is in lieu of their scheduled tour to India next year which will be reciprocated by India touring Sri Lanka in months of July/August 2015.

These ODI’s would be held in Cuttack, Hyderabad, Ranchi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad. And Virat Kohli is supposed to lead the Team as captain MS Dhoni is given rest. We can only hope that Indian cricket fans would get the most from the upcoming tour of Sri Lanka and would just enjoy the game. BCCI’s meeting’s decision—A Big blow to West Indies
