Players, board blamed for India pull-out

The West Indies Cricket Board, players and its union have been blamed for the India series fiasco when the team dramatically pulled out midway into the tour over a payment dispute with the board and WIPA, according to a task force set up by WICB.

The task force was set up by the West Indian board after the national team decided to discontinue the tour post playing four One-day Internationals after a pay dispute between players and the board. They were to play the fifth and final ODI, a Twenty20 match and three Tests. Besides blaming West Indies cricket’s stakeholders, the task force, headed by attorney Michael Gordon, another lawyer Richard Cheltenham and legendary former fast bowler Wes Hall, also laid out eight recommendations ranging from clear guidelines for players’ contracts to appointing a team psychologist for touring parties, in order to prevent a similar debacle in future.
