West Indies in Trouble as India Suspend Future Tours
West Indies cricket was plunged into a major crisis after India, the world's richest board, suspended all future tours with them following the Caribbean team's abrupt withdrawal from a series in India last week.
The mighty BCCI also decided to take legal action against the West Indies Cricket Board after the tourists abandoned the series on Friday over a protracted payment dispute between the players and their board.
They still had a one-dayer, a Twenty20 international and three test matches left to play.
To fill the void, the BCCI swiftly arranged a five-match one-day series with Sri Lanka next month but was not ready to take the estimated 65 million dollar loss lying down even though WICB apologised for the team's sudden withdrawal.
