The Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) working committee has announced that they will be suspending all bilateral tours to the West Indies after the country’s national team decided to pull out of their tour of India.

In the next eight-year cycle, India and the West Indies are supposed to face each other five times, four of which are scheduled be held in the Caribbean.

While the BCCI did not say whether they will seek damages from the West Indies, the board did state that they will be taking legal action against the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).

One working committee member stated that the bilateral agreement between the two nations “has been breached” and that the BCCI has “every right to claim damages”.

An insider added: “At the moment, it looks unlikely that the bilateral series would resume anytime soon. It will be up to the legal cell now to see if and when a settlement takes place.”
