India and West Indies to revive bi-lateral ties

India and West Indies are set to revive their bilateral ties after almost a two-year hiatus when the two teams play a scheduled four-match Test series later this year. India are scheduled to travel to the Caribbean in July-August for the series, although the dates and venues have not been announced yet.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) had suspended the bilateral ties as a penalty after the West Indies abandoned their tour to India mid-way in late 2014.

West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) president Dave Cameron stated,


The official word is that the tour is on. We are just awaiting confirmation of the venues now. And once we have done that, we will send out a release with the dates, the venues and everything.

However, the tour will clash with the Caribbean Premier League (CPL), the Caribbean’s version of the IPL, and players featuring in the Test series are likely to miss out on the explosive T20 league.

Cameron also stated, "Yes, it will (clash with the CPL). The unfortunate thing is that the international calendar is packed. And the only window for this tour to come off is during that time. So, there will be a clash, but we are working with CPL to ensure there is no clash of venues so times of the matches won't be hampered.”
