West Indies will take a full-strength team on their tour of South Africa next month, according to their one-day international captain Dwayne Bravo.

West Indies cricket is in crisis following the abandoned tour of India, which has left the cash-strapped West Indies Cricket Board facing a damages claim from the Board of Control for Cricket in India worth a minimum £26.2million.

The issue at the heart of the players’ walk-out – a disputed payment deal brokered by WICB and the West Indies Players’ Association – has reportedly moved closer to resolution following emergency talks between the parties

Although there has been no official confirmation of an agreement, Bravo claimed the row had been resolved.

“It’s all sorted out and the West Indies are going to be back playing again,” Bravo was quoted as saying by

“As far as I know the best West Indies team will tour South Africa.

“Everyone is available as far as I know and we look forward to trying to give the South African boys a good run.

“It’s always going to be tough, but it’s good that all the matters are resolved now.”

The Windies are scheduled to play three Tests, three Twenty20 internationals and five one-day internationals in South Africa.
