"We have sent a demand letter to the WICB claiming damages to the tune of 258 crore and we are in the process of ascertaining other damages incurred by our hosting centres, after which we will present a final claim amount," Patel said.

"It is a matter of consideration for the WICB to decide as to how they will cover our damages. (Abandoning the tour) is a unilateral decision of the WICB and they are solely responsible for this."
