Cricket Australia concerned over WI decision to abandon India tour

Cricket Australia says it is deeply concerned over the West Indies players' decision to abandon the tour of India, especially with the Aussies scheduled to tour the Caribbean next year.

Wally Edwards, Cricket Australia’s chairman, described the situation as deeply concerning.

West Indies one-day players quit the five-match tour of India following the fourth One-Day International in Dharamsala last Friday, after failing to reach an agreement with their union over a contracts and pay dispute.

Australia are scheduled to tour the Caribbean starting in May next year, playing two Tests and three One-Day Internationals.

And former Test captain Dilip Vengsarkar believes the decision by West Indies players to abandon their one-day tour of India was an insult to Indian fans.

Vengsarkar says the team should be made to answer for their actions.

The outstanding former India batsman was one of several in the local fraternity who voice their disapproval over the stance taken by the West Indies one-day team.
