The India vs. West Indies T20Is in Florida are approved, and Rohit and Dravid are among those who re

Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, and Rahul Dravid, the head coach, were two individuals who had to conduct hurried interviews for the visas.



India and the West Indies will play the final two Twenty20 Internationals of their five-match series at Lauderhill, Florida, after both teams' players finally received their US visas. Some players and support staff are said to have received visas just in time thanks to the intervention of Guyana president Irfan Ali.


The president of Cricket West Indies (CWI), Ricky Skerritt, was quoted by Cricbuzz as saying, "It was a timely and effective diplomatic effort by His Excellency." The third Twenty20 International in Basseterre, St. Kitts, concluded on Tuesday night, and those without US visas were transported to Georgetown, the capital of Guyana, for US Embassy interviews.


Rohit Sharma, the captain of India, and Rahul Dravid, the head coach, travelled to Georgetown. In actuality, 14 of them from the Indian touring party lacked the necessary travel authorizations. While this is happening, Miami has been reached by the remaining players, including Ravindra Jadeja, R Ashwin, Dinesh Karthik, Ravi Bishnoi, Suryakumar Yadav, and Kuldeep Yadav. On Thursday night, the rest of their teammates will arrive to join them.


"They can only fly in the afternoon of tomorrow (Thursday). All visa requests have been granted, however passports won't be returned until this afternoon (Wednesday). The CWI has accomplished everything that it was able to. For those previously in possession of visas, delaying last night's flight to Miami would have put them at greater financial risk than having it run as scheduled "Further, Skerritt said.


The previous day's second Twenty20 match in St. Kitts was postponed by three hours due to a large delay in the shipment of luggage from Tarouba, Trinidad, where the first match was played. Because of this, the third T20I on Tuesday was also postponed by 1.5 hours to allow players more time to rest. India presently leads the five-match series 2-1. The next two games are set for Saturday and Sunday in Lauderhill, Florida's Central Broward Park. In 2016 and 2019, India played T20I games at this location.
