NEW DELHI (AP) West Indies chief selector and former captain Clive Lloyd has apologized for the national team's abrupt withdrawal from its tour of India because of a pay dispute between its cricket board and the players' union.
"I want to talk about the West Indies," Lloyd said at a televised cricket discussion in New Delhi on Saturday night. "I apologize for the team leaving. Some guys decided to stop this tour and I think it is a mistake."
Lloyd hoped relations between the two cricket boards would not suffer.
