BCCI slaps Rs 250 crore damages claim on WICB
The Board of Control for Cricket in India, BCCI, has slapped damages claim of 250 crore rupees on the West Indies Cricket Board. This comes in the backdrop of mid-series pullout by West Indies players due to a pay dispute with their Board. BCCI’s secretary Sanjay Patel said that the board has sent a letter to the West Indies Cricket Board claiming the damages.
After the incomplete five-match ODI series, the visitors were scheduled to play in a one-off T20 match at Cuttack followed by Tests at Hyderabad, Bangalore and Ahmedabad.
It has been learnt that the BCCI has given West Indies Cricket Board about two weeks time to come up with a compensation plan failing which the BCCI will file a lawsuit.
It is believed that, if the WICB fails to pay up the said amount, chances are that the WICB’s share of ICC revenue will go to BCCI.
