India’s cricket board, the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), announced the resumption of bilateral cricketing ties with the West Indies, saying its team will travel to the Caribbean for a Test series later this year.
“The BCCI and the WICB (West Indies Cricket Board) have resolved outstanding issues arising out of the abandonment of the tour of the West Indies team to India in 2014,” the BCCI said in a statement released to the media.
“With this understanding, bilateral series as part of the Future Tours Programme will be resumed with the Indian cricket team touring the West Indies in July-August, 2016 for a four match Test series,” it added.
Earlier this month India’s board dropped a $42 million damages claim against the West Indies over the abandoned 2014 tour after the team agreed to return to play in India next year.
