West Indies cricket players are set to return back home cancelling their tour of India in the middle after dispute arose regarding the payment of the player with West Indies Cricket Board and West Indies Players Association.
West Indies were initially in India to play five match ODIs series, one-off T20 international and three match ODI series. But as the dispute gone to the top West Indies players will leave the series in the middle after their fourth ODI against India held in Dharmashala where they lost the match by 59 runs.
With the loss India won the five match series by 2-1 as their third ODI was cancelled because of Cyclone and West Indies skipping their fifth and final ODI.
The dispute between West Indies Cricket Board, West Indies Players Association and the players got rise as Wavel Hinds, chairman of WIPA signed a MoU with WICB regarding the heavy cut in the payment of the players. But their ODI captain Dwayne Bravo who led West Indies cricket players challenged the MoU between WIPA and WICB and threatened to skip their tour of India.
But still with the dispute running they came to play their first two ODIs and the third being cancelled because of cyclone.
Bravo told television commentator that this is the decision time before the start of the game. All the players of West Indies cricket team were in the field during time of toss which is regarded as the protest.
As West Indies is leaving back home in the middle of their tour India is trying to play five ODIs series against Sri Lanka from November 1 to 15 to cover the gap of West Indies tour. The final itinerary of the tour of Sri Lanka in India will be finalized by BCCI by October 21.
