Angry BCCI suspends bilateral tours with Windies

October 22, 2014 09:25 AM

The Indian cricket board Tuesday decided to initiate legal action against the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and cancel all bilateral series against the Caribbean side whose players withdrew mid-way from an ongoing India tour last week.
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) took the decision at its working committee meet here.

"The BCCI will initiate legal proceedings against the WICB due to the abrupt cancellation of the tour. All bilateral tours between BCCI and WICB stand suspended," BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said.

The Dwayne Bravo-led visiting team was yet to play the fifth One-Day International (ODI) at Kolkata and a one-off Twenty20 International at Cuttack followed by three Tests at Hyderabad, Bangalore and Ahmedabad when they decided to withdraw.

Following the fourth ODI at Dharamsala, the West Indies players chose not to complete the tour because of an ongoing payment structure dispute with the WICB and West Indies Players' Association (WIPA).

Skipper Bravo, unhappy with the manner in which WIPA president Wavell Hinds had handled the dispute, said the players had lost faith in the WIPA.
