Windies face financial ruin after India tour ban

BLANKET BAN: India and West Indies won't be playing each other anytime soon (PA)

WEST INDIAN cricket could be in jeopardy after India called off all future tours to the Caribbean after the Windies pulled out of its India tour last week.

In addition to the blanket ban decision, Indian cricket is looking to sue their West Indian counterparts for damages due to financial losses stemming from the Caribbeans withdrawing from their visit to India.

The cost of the ban and possible legal case could threaten the future of West Indies cricket, which already struggles financially.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) is reportedly looking to sue the Windies for £30m in damages and announced all tours between the sides “stand suspended”.

The West Indies were scheduled to tour India in February and March 2016.

Last week, the Windies withdrew from their tour of India after only one day during a one-day international series.

The West Indies Cricket Board claimed the decision was taken after the players took the “decision to withdraw their services for the remainder of the tour of India”.

BCCI have now confirmed Sri Lanka are set to step in and play a five-match one-day international series that starts on November 2.
