The West Indies Cricket Board deny claims that they have called off their tour of India.

The West Indies Cricket Board have released a statement claiming that they have not withdrawn from their tour of India.

This afternoon, it was announced by the Indian Cricket Board that the WICB had told them that they wish to cancel their current tour.

It was claimed that the West Indies will not compete in the fifth and final match of their one-day series or face India in a scheduled Twenty20 match and three-Test series.

However, on the West Indies' official Facebook page, a statement was released saying: "WICB has not called off tour of India.

"The West Indies Cricket Board advises, that, contrary to media reports, it has taken no decision to discontinue the ongoing tour to India.

"The WICB will make a further statement following the conclusion of the Fourth one-day international which is in progress."

It is believed that there is a dispute between the board and its players.
