The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) have sent an apology letter to the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) after the national team recently pulled out midway through their tour of the country.

The West Indies decided to abandon their tour due to a pay dispute with the WICB and West Indies Players’ Association (WIPA).

“We have received a letter from WICB a couple of days ago,” BCCI secretary Sanjay Patel said. “It said that they are apologetic and bankrupt and they urged us to resolve the issue through the Disputes Committee.”

However, according to sources, the BCCI want the WICB to give them 50 per cent of the income they earn from now until 2023.

It is estimated that the WICB stand to make US$100 million in that period, which means that the BCCI want a minimum of US$50 million to cover up the losses they incurred after the West Indies pulled out.
