PORT OF SPAIN – The West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) has won a major battle its their long-running case with the regional players union, the West Indies Players Association (WIPA).

The High Court in Trinidad and Tobago yesterday ruled in its favour regarding the contentious issue of a Collective Bargaining Agreement/Memorandum of Understanding.

Justice Ricky Rahim struck down an injunction brought last March by WIPA, dismissed the claim for US$10 million (BDS$20 million) and ordered the body to pay the WICB’s court costs of TT$900 000 (US$141 000)

The court ruling ends a protracted standoff between the two entities, one which had kept relations fragile and threatened to undermine the smooth running of the sport in the region.

In a statement issued yesterday evening, the WICB said it would be reaching out to WIPA in order to find a lasting solution in the best interest of the game. (CMC)
