Updated - Oct 17, 2014 11:29 am
The West Indies team has decided to end the tour of India mid way and that they are no longer continuing the series. The fourth ODI at Dharamshala will be the last match before the WI team flies back home. The teams were scheduled to play one more ODI followed by 1 T20I and a 3 test series.
But the dispute between WICB and WIPA over dues to be paid to the players has not yet been sorted and with no signs of quick solution the players have decided to call it off from here on. A senior BCCI official has confirmed the news that the West Indies team management has informed the BCCI of their decision before the start of the match.
While this would end the tour abruptly it will also hamper Indian team’s preparations ahead of the tour of Australia. The BCCI is now trying to organize itself and talking to other friend Cricket boards and trying to organize a short tour.
Sri Lanka is believed to be among the few teams contacted and are front-runners for the quick series. As this is India’s last home series before the World Cup 2015 and the team and the Board would not want to spoil it.
