There are only approximately four days remaining until the first of the two Twenty20 Internationals in Florida that will be played between West Indies and India, and there is no sign that either squad is ready to travel to the United States. According to reports published by Cricbuzz over the course of the past two days, several members of both teams, including players, have not yet been granted visas to enter the United States.
However, Cricket West Indies (CWI), the organisation that will be hosting the matches, has not given up hope. According to the most recent information that has emerged from the Caribbean, both teams will be flown to Georgetown in Guyana on Wednesday (August 3), and appointments have been scheduled for them at the American Embassy in that city. This is the final effort to keep the Florida games from being cancelled. An official from the CWI stated that they are unable to influence the other aspects.
“The appointments for entering the United States with a visa are scheduled to take place on Wednesday in Guyana. The completion of all of the necessary applications, etc., has been achieved. After that, we have no more say in the matter. But despite that, we have hope “Ricky Skerritt, the president of the CWI, stated to Cricbuzz on Tuesday (August 2).
The teams are aiming to arrive in Miami, Florida, in time to play both of their upcoming matches there on Saturday and Sunday (August 6 and 7), and they expect to do it by Thursday. The duration of the flight from Georgetown, Guyana, to Miami, Florida, is around five hours.
This website was informed by a source based in Miami that the plans to hold the final two games in Florida are still in place, but that the CWI is simultaneously preparing other preparations. The CWI chief refused to identify the second possibility that his board was considering, although a source stated that Trinidad is the most likely location for the event.
Following the two T20 Internationals that will take place on August 3 and 5, South Africa will move on to a three-match Test series that will begin on August 17, with the goal of resuming their fine run at the top of the ICC Test Championship standings. As a result, the management of the squad has made it their top priority to keep an eye on Rabada in the days leading up to those games.
