The International Cricket Council (ICC) has expressed its concern at the current dispute between the Indian and West Indian boards but adds that it is powerless to intervene unless requested to do so.
Following an internal dispute over pay, the West Indian team withdrew from their tour of India last week.
The Indian board (BCCI) have responded by suspending bilateral tours between the two countries and are prepared to initiate legal proceedings against the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB).
The WICB have apologised for the withdrawal and are urgently seeking a meeting with the BCCI.
The ICC echoed the WICB's hopes that the situation can be resolved amicably.
In a statement released today, the sport's governing body said that although they had been "monitoring" the situation, they are unable to intervene.
"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," they said.
The matter is set to be one for discussion at the next ICC Board meeting, which is scheduled for 10th November in Dubai.
