The BCCI smack of self interest to me. Let's sue the Windies for 65m but let the same striking players play in the IPL because our Franchises won't be happy. If the BCCI really wanted the tour to continue they would of been handing out lifetime IPL bans for anybody striking. The tour would of continued, albeit under protest. They could of also offered to meet some of the costs in return for an extended schedule or additional future tour. What's next? Players withdrawing from a tour and the hosting board suing the touring team for less gate receipts? I don't think the respective cricket boards have worked together on this.

Can the ecb sue the BCCI for an Indian team only turning up for two tests this summer? Same goes for CA for an English team not turning up last winter!

Someone made a good point in a cricinfo comment (surprising I know). SA didn't start proceedings against India when they shortened a tour a couple a years ago did they? I know the situation is different but the result was the same in a shorter tour ended up happening but assume the BCCI would see that differently?

The BCCI won't be happy until it's India vs India played in India with Indian umpires and oy shown on Indian TV
