WICB has not called off tour of India St John’s, Antigua:

The West Indies Cricket Board advises, that, contrary to media reports, it has taken no decision to discontinue the ongoing tour to India. The WICB will make a further statement following the conclusion of the Fourth One Day International which is in progress.

Via Windies Cricket.

Earlie, according to medai reports, West Indies have called off their tour of India and the ongoing fourth ODI at Dharamshala will be the final match of the tour. So, West Indies will not play the remaining 1 ODI, 1 T20I & 3 Tests against India due to the ongoing payment structure dispute between the WICB and WIPA.

It has been said that the players are not convinced with the West Indies Cricket Board’s stand on the issue over the players’ salary which has prompted them to leave the tour midway. West Indies management had confirmed their intentions to call off the tour to BCCI earlier today.

Sources in the BCCI confirm that board is going to sue the West Indies board for the losses that will occur as a result of this. It is also understood that the Indian board has invited the Sri Lankan Board to play in India and the official confirmation can be available in another 48 hours.

A top BCCI official also said that the board is unhappy with the way West Indies Cricket Board has handled the situation and also confirmed that the matter will be taken by board in the ICC meeting.

West Indies players will fly back home on their own expenses and the BCCI is not going to compensate it. It is likely that the Sri Lankan team might travel to India in coming week for a short series.
