CRICKET: West Indies Board in US$40m pickle

Published:Saturday | November 1, 2014 | 9:43 AM

The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) will have to find nearly US$42 million in order to stave off a lawsuit from the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) stemming from the aborted tour of India earlier this month.



The BCCI told the WICB that its losses as a result of the aborted tour had been estimated at US$41.97 million, and gave the regional Board 15 days in which to come up with a plan of compensation.



The BCCI had announced two weeks ago it would seek compensation from the WICB for losses sustained as a result of the cancelled tour.



The West Indies players abandoned the tour following a bitter wrangle with both the WICB and the Wavell Hinds-led West Indies Players Association over the new terms of the recently negotiated Collective Bargaining Agreement.
