West Indies players blamed by board for collapse of India tour

West Indies' players are at fault for their failed tour of India, according to the country's cricket board.

The West Indies Cricket Board have blamed their players for the collapse of their tour of India.

A dispute between the board and the players boiled over during the fourth one-day international, with the Board of Control for Cricket in India releasing a statement claiming the remaining five games would be scrapped.

The West Indies authorities, who initially denied that their touring players were coming home, have now released a statement of their own, saying: "Players in the West Indies Squad currently in India represented by Mr Dwayne Bravo indicated to the WICB that the players have taken a decision to withdraw their services for the remainder of the tour of India.

"As a result of this action by the players the WICB was left with no option but to advise the BCCI that it will no longer be able to provide a West Indies team for the remaining five matches."

An offer to bring out a second-string team was rejected by the BCCI.
