India, West Indies to play in Canada


The One-day International (ODI) cricket matches, which were scheduled to be played between India and the West Indies, are likely to be held in Toronto in September.

The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) and the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) made the decision during the International Cricket Council (ICC) Executive Board meeting at Lord’s this week, according to a leading cricket website.

“The series had been reportedly scrapped and the boards were said to be looking at alternative venues in the Far East,” the website said. Apparently, the ICC did not give clearance to the grounds in the US, but Toronto has hosted one-day cricket matches earlier.

However, the website also says that the series may face hurdles as the West Indies players have not been consulted about their participation in the series. This is required as the match falls outside ICC’s Future Tours Programme (FTP).
