However, if things don’t work out, CWI will be hosting the last two games in one of the Caribbean islands. Central Broward Park at Lauderhill in Florida were the original hosts as part of ICC’s initiative to promote cricket in the US. However, the visa has continued to be an issue for players, especially from India. While some have already received their visas, many are yet to from both squads.

Both set of players were supposed to receive their travel documents to the USA in Saint Kitts & Nevis where the 2nd and third T20s were supposed to take place. However, they are yet to. As per a Cricbuzz report, players may have to travel back to Trinidad for the visa documents before travelling to the US.

With the logistics hassle, the CWI are mulling making changes in the schedule and holding the remaining two games in the West Indies.

“There are options being explored while we continue to pursue the possibilities of receiving the outstanding visas,” Ricky Skerritt, the president of the CWI told Cricbuzz.

India & West Indies players reach St Kitts & Nevis: Meanwhile, India and West Indies players have reached St Kitts & Nevis for the 2nd T20. The match will be played on Monday.
