The Indian tour of the Caribbean scheduled
for next year must go on if the West Indies
Cricket Board (WICB) is to get our cricket out
of the doldrums.
Over this column I will attempt to explain what
I meant by that first statement. Currently the
Indians have no interest in any bi-lateral relations
with the WICB and this is because of the ill-
advised aborted tour of India last October. The
West Indies team led by Dwayne Bravo boycotted
the tour after a payment structure dispute with
It has left the regional cricket body with a bill
in the region of US$41.97M and also no bi-lateral
relations with the financial powerhouse of cricket.
The Indians are carded to play four Test matches
in the Caribbean next year. This, if it comes off,
is expected to net the WICB a very sizable profit.
The Indians want their money and they are
sticking to the fact that they don t want any bi-
lateral relations. Here comes a situation where
the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)
can be caught in a very dicey situation. If they
fail to tour the West Indies, then the WICB may
not be able to pay back that money for many,
many years to come. If they do tour, then the
WICB will be in a position to repay the funds
and keep afloat.
Speaking about staying afloat, the WICB has
implemented a number of measures to improve
our cricket and these measures of course needs
proper funding to get the desired results. Let s
take a look at the franchise system. While a num-
ber of people have
shared negative views
about it, I think it is one
of the best things that
has happen to West
Indies cricket in a
while. Here is a situa-
tion where players out-
side the Test players are
given some kind of
financial stability and
now they can focus on
cricket, rather than
having to look for a job
and then apply and
hope to get time off for
In addition to this,
the players are now
around a professional
set up for the entire year and this is bound to
have a positive impact on not only their cricket
but their lives as a whole.
The WICB has promised to foot the bill for the
six franchises for the first four years of its life.
Given current situation with the global economy
and sponsorship hard to come by, the entire sys-
tem could collapse if the franchises can t get
bought. If the WICB is able to stay afloat finan-
cially they can prop up this very vital league until
such time that the franchises can go it alone.
If India fails to tour, it would push West Indies
cricket further back and the region cannot afford
that right now. Currently the Indians are embroiled
in bacchanal as far as their elections are concerned
and they will not sit and talk to the WICB until
they have elections and a leader in place.
What is even more worrying is the fact that
the longer it takes for the WICB and the BCCI
to sit down and work out a plan, it gives the for-
mer less time in order to get a replacement team
to come to the Caribbean if the Indians refuse.
This could lead to further losses and even more
debts being incurred by the WICB. The WICB
marketing committee needs a shot in the arm in
my opinion and they have to find ways to bring
in investors despite the fact that the world is in
recession and also the team is not that attractive
anymore. It is a tough job for the best of people
but as Theodore Roosevelt said: "It is hard to
fail but it is worst to have never tried to suc-
West Indies cricket is at its lowest ebb at
the moment but there is a silver lining and
I am seeing the WICB putting measures in
place that can pay off handsomely for our
cricket. They are of course making mistakes
as they go along but I think in time to come
we will see that most of the measures will
The International Cricket Council (ICC)
can t sit by and allow this West Indies/India
situation to remain hanging. The ICC has to
protect the game and if it means getting
involved in matters between two big members
then so be it.
The BCCI in my opinion is a runaway train
and they need to be roped in. Whether the
ICC has the courage to do that, it s another
matter but they need to get involved now. I
am also looking at the future of India and
Pakistan and the BCCI seems to have severed
ties with the Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) as
well. One is left to ask the question. "Who s

What is even
more worrying is
the fact that the
longer it takes for
the WICB and the
BCCI to sit down
and work out a
plan, it gives the
former less time

team to come to
