India-WI to play two T20Is in USA



The last two T20Is between India and West Indies, to be held in Lauderhill, Florida on August 6 and 7, are all set to happen after both teams received their visas to the United States of America.

The USA visas for some players and support staff in the two teams were obtained following the intervention of Guyana President Irfan Ali.

Those without the USA visas were flown to Georgetown after the third T20I in Basseterre, St Kitts ended on Tuesday night for interviews at the US Embassy.

Among those who attended the interviews were India skipper Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid.

There were, in fact, 14 members of the touring party who did not have the travel approvals.

Earlier, the second T20I in St Kitts on Monday was delayed by three hours after delay in luggage arrival from Tarouba, Trinidad, where the series opener was held. As a result, the third T20I on Tuesday was also delayed to give players sufficient time for recovery.
