Caricom: Give us an ease


Share post:

Please hold off for now.

With one day left before the expiration of a deadline for the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to explain how it plans to pay the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI)US$42 million in compensation, CARICOM has asked the BCCI to delay its threat to initiate legal proceedings.

While advising the BCCI that the WICB was on the verge of bankruptcy and was in no position to pay, CARICOM made it clear that regional governments would not provide any funding to meet the Indians’ demands.

In a letter signed by CARICOM secretary-general Irwin LaRocque, the BCCI was requested to delay its compensation claim by 40 days following tomorrow’s 15-day deadline, to allow chairman of the CARICOM Prime Ministerial sub-committee on cricket, Grenada’s Dr Keith Mitchell, to set up a high-level working group that would hammer out details of a “grand settlement”.
