Sachin Tendulkar s hugely followed
farewell Test series in October-
November came at a price to the
BCCI---$250,000, to be precise.
The BCCI has paid this amount to
the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB)
on a specific request from it, said a top
BCCI official. This money, according
to the official, is actually the "reim-
bursement" that the WICB had sought.
The official also pointed out that the
BCCI was not obliged to pay anything
to the WICB as worldwide tours for
many years have been taking place on
reciprocal basis, meaning that no guar-
antee money is paid to the Board send-
ing its team to the host country.
"The home series against the West
Indies, comprising two Tests and three
One-day Internationals, was not orig-
inally scheduled for the 2013-14 home
season, nor was it mentioned on the
ICC Future Tours Programme, to which
BCCI is not a signatory, anyway," the
official told Mail Today.
"The only series scheduled at home
was against Australia, which played
seven ODIs and a solitary Twenty20
International. But after India s tour to
South Africa was shortened due to a
dispute between the two Boards, the
BCCI invited the West Indies for the
series during which Tendulkar com-
pleted 200 Tests," he said.
Defending champions Sport Elite remained
unbeaten in the Tobago Cricket Association Two
Day League following 5th round action over the
The champs made light work of Expendables, winning
the contest by 7 wickets. Meantime, former champions
C&B United re-entered the title race with an exciting 9-
wicket win over Airport Authority.
Marcus Daniel complemented his first innings score
of 93 with 6 wickets for 49 runs to guide the Canaan
boys to a much needed win following defeat last weekend.
Elsewhere, medium pacer Selron Joefield proved unplayable
as Georgia earned first innings points against Speyside.
Joefield took an astonishing 9 wickets for 21 runs in Spey-
side s first innings total of 98.
However, even after asking Speyside to follow on
Georgia couldn t force an outright win. And in the week-
end s final game, left arm spinner Sanjaay Mohammed
continued his fine form with the ball as his seven wickets
for 52 runs proved decisive as Avengers topped Roxborough
Ball Players on first innings.
