BCCI Drops $42m Aborted Windies Tour Claim

The Economic Times - - Sports: The Great Games -

In­dia’s cricket board has dropped a $42 mil­lion dam­ages claim against the West Indies over an aban­doned tour in 2014 af­ter the new World Twenty20 cham­pi­ons agreed to re­turn next year, a re­port said Fri­day. The huge dam­ages claim lodged by the Board of Con­trol for Cricket in In­dia (BCCI) had threat­ened to crip­ple its cash­strapped West Indies coun­ter­part which has long been at log­ger­heads with its own play­ers. BCCI pres­i­dent Shashank Manohar said the de­ci­sion to waive the claim, filed by his pre­de­ces­sor N Srinivasan’s regime, had been made af­ter the West Indies agreed to ful­fil their orig­i­nal com­mit­ments. A sched­ule for the tour­na­ment is ex­pected to be fi­nalised next month.
