NEW DELHI, April 23: Cricketers in the West Indies have not been paid their match fees since January this year due to a severe cash crunch in their governing body.
While the players� retainer has been cleared, Cricket West Indies (CWI) has admitted the non-payment of match fees.
�...monthly salary (and allowances) are up-to-date. The problem we are having is the retained players in the regional first-class competition have not been paid their match fees for the eight rounds that have been played so far,� Wayne Lewis, the secretary of the West Indies Players� Association (WIPA), was quoted as saying by �ESPNCricinfo�.
The report stated that men�s team has not been paid match fee for the home series against Ireland in January (three ODIs and three T20Is) and the Sri Lanka tour in February-March (three ODIs and two T20Is). � PTI
