West Indies pull out of remainder of India tour

Cricketnext Staff | October 17, 2014, 4:09 PM IST

The West Indies have abruptly called off their ongoing India tour due to an ongoing payment dispute between the WICB (West Indies Cricket Board) and WIPA (West Indies Players Association).

The West Indies will end the tour after the 4th ODI in Dharamsala and will not play the remaining fifth ODI, one-off T20 and three-Test series.

The Board of Cricket for Control in India (BCCI) has expressed shocked and disappointed at the decision to cut short the ongoing tour.

"The BCCI is shocked and extremely disappointed at the decision taken by the WICB. The WICB's inability to resolve internal issues with its players and allowing the same to affect an ongoing bilateral series does not reflect well on any of those involved," BCCI Secretary Sanjay Patel said in a release.

"The withdrawal gives little thought to the future of the game, the players and the long standing relations between the BCCI and the WICB," Patel added.

The board is trying to find an alternative team as a replacement, with Sri Lanka being the favourite, reported ESPNcricinfo.

Here's the complete BCCI press release:

BCCI shocked and surprised at WICB's decision to cancel the ongoing tour of India.

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has informed the BCCI of its decision to cancel the rest of its ongoing tour to India because of a dispute with its players, and has advised the BCCI that its players will return home immediately.

The BCCI is shocked and extremely disappointed at the decision taken by the WICB. The WICB's inability to resolve internal issues with its players and allowing the same to affect an ongoing bilateral series does not reflect well on any of those involved. The withdrawal gives little thought to the future of the game, the players and the long standing relations between the BCCI and the WICB.

The BCCI wishes to inform all its stakeholders, especially ardent fans of the Indian cricket team, that this is a unilateral decision taken by the WICB and its players, in spite of several appeals to the WICB to honour its commitment and complete the series.

The BCCI will pursue all options available to protect its rights, whilst seeking appropriate action from the ICC to ensure that its interests and those of the game at large will not suffer any damage due to such acts of indiscretion.
