BCCI waives USD 41.97 million claim on WICB, confirms Manohar


Shashank Manohar, the Board of Control for Cricket in India president, stated that the $41.97 million claim that the board had imposed on West Indies for the abandoned tour in 2014 has been waived off, on Thursday (April 21).

West Indies is now slated to tour India in 2017 to complete the matches from that tour that remained – the schedule for which will be finalised by end of May.

“That is now sorted out because they are going to come back and play here next year,” Manohar told ESPNcricinfo. “They have to complete those [unfinished] games. That was a claim raised by the board. [We] would be satisfied by them coming and playing here.”

The 2014 tour comprised of five One-Day Internationals, one Twenty20 Internationals and three Tests, but Dwayne Bravo the boycott as the team returned home after the fourth ODI in Dharamsala.

Subsequently, the BCCI levied punitive damages on the West Indies Cricket Board and suspended bilateral tours between the two nations.

However, the issue has been dealt with after West Indies agreed to return and complete the remainder of the games which was discussed late last year between top officials from both boards.
