London: The International Cricket Council has admitted it "does not have the power to intervene" in the high-stakes dispute between the West Indies Cricket Board and the Board of Control for Cricket in India.
A statement released by ICC read: "The International Cricket Council said on Wednesday it was concerned with the dispute between the Board of Control for Cricket in India and the West Indies Cricket Board, and was closely monitoring the developments arising from the recently cancelled tour of India.
The ICC hopes that the matter will be resolved amicably, but clarified that, unless the matter is otherwise referred to it, it does not have the power to intervene in disputes resulting from a bilateral FTP tour.
"The ICC added that the matter will be discussed at the ICC Board meeting, which is scheduled for November 10 in Dubai. Until then, the ICC will make no further comment on this matter."
