BCCI angered by the side’s abrupt cancellation.
The West Indies’ tour of India was cut short last Friday with one one-day international, one Twenty20 match and three Tests still left to play in the series.
The tourists pulled out of the rest of the tour because of a pay dispute and The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) were left angered by the sudden cancellation.
The Indians have now confirmed they will be taking legal action against the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and have suspended all future matches with the side until further notice, reports the Guardian.
In place of the scheduled games with the West Indians, Sri Lanka have stepped in for a five-match ODI series which begins on November 2, with the venues being Cuttack, Hyderabad, Ranchi, Kolkata and Ahmedabad.
Up until the cancellation the one-day series between the two teams was neatly poised at 1-1 after two matches – with the third having to be abandoned due to bad weather – but it was clear in the fourth game that the away side were not fully focused.
In fact after the hosts had finished their innings the announcement was made by West Indies and the Indians went onto win the tie comfortable in a subdued environment.
