Following the end of a marathon emergency board meeting, the West Indies Cricket Board expressed "sorrow" for the events that lead to West Indies aborting their tour of India last week and decided to request an immediate meeting with the BCCI to arrest the slide in trust expressed publicly by the Indian board.
The WICB also plans to set up a task force that would meet both the players and its representative West Indies Players Association (WIPA), both of whom have been locked in an impasse over the new combined business agreement and memorandum of understanding which was signed in September. The task force will meet with all parties before reporting its findings to the WICB board.
Although the WICB stated that it would act "expeditiously as the situation would allow", the statement did not mention the exact timeline when the task force would return its findings. There was also no mention of who would form part of this task force. "WICB believes that a way can be found to repair the damage that has been caused and to ensure that similar events do not recur, with the focus being on the betterment of West Indies and world cricket."
