ICC sanctions West Indies-India deal


The International Cricket Council (ICC) has given its blessing to new profit-sharing agreement, which will see the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) and the Board for Cricket Control of India (BCCI) exploiting lucrative American market.

The WICB and the BCCI have agreed to play between three and five One-day Internationals (ODIs) in the United States and Canada in August and September.

Visiting ICC Chief Executive Malcolm Speed, said: “This will give the West Indies a chance to exploit a huge fan base and exploit a huge market.”

He said India, with a population of over a billion and combined populations of Canada and the US of over 300 million, gives the West Indies a place with relatively small economies a chance to take advantage of these huge economies.

Speaking after the ICC and Cricket World Cup 2007 held a series of meeting in Barbados, Speed said, “Throughout the cricket world, all of cricketing countries will be pleased that the West Indies will be able to take advantage of the power these two huge economies and countries offer.

“At the ICC we are very happy that the matches will be played in the US and Canada. It will promote the game in these two countries. The relationships between the WICB and the BCCI is very important and the WICB should be congratulated for getting this agreement going,” Speed stated.
