BCCI set to lift West Indies ban


West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron has revealed that India will tour the Caribbean next year provided the Windies complete the commitments they failed to fulfil in 2014.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) was at loggerheads with the WICB last year after West Indies cut short their tour of India.

That abandonment came as a result of a dispute between Windies players, the WICB and the West Indies Players' Association, prompting the BCCI to suspend all bilateral tours to the Caribbean.

However, an agreement now appears to have been reached for the two sides to face each other again if West Indies return to India to play the matches they failed to play last year.  

"West Indies Cricket Board [WICB] President, Dave Cameron, today [December 23] confirmed that following discussions with BCCI President, Shashank Manohar, the West Indies will host India in the Caribbean in 2016," a media statement said. 

"This agreement is subject to the WICB and the Players Association giving a joint commitment to complete, at a later date, the tour which prematurely ended in October 2014."

 India are scheduled to tour the West Indies for a four-Test series between July and August.
