On the other hand, Rohit Sharma’s unit is looking forward to continuing the winning streak and getting into a dominant position in the context of the series. A victory in today’s encounter for the Indian team would turn the remaining three matches of the series into do-or-die encounters for the hosts.
The highly-anticipated game is scheduled to take place at the iconic Warner’s park, which is located in Basseterre of St Kitts and Nevis. The game will feature a full crowd capacity. The same venue will host the next encounter of the five-match T20I series.
The start of the 2nd T20I is delayed:
What comes as an extensive development from Warner’s park is that the start of the much-important game is delayed due to a bizarre reason. Cricket West Indies confirmed through a press release that the game will now officially begin at 10 PM IST instead of 8 PM which was the original start time of the encounter.
The game has been delayed as the luggage of the players from both the camps is yet to reach the venue (St Kitts) from the venue of the last game (Trinidad). The Windies cricket board confirmed that the situation could not have been managed better and the development was out of their hands.
“Due to circumstances beyond CWI’s control, there have been significant delays in crucial team luggage arriving into St Kitts from Trinidad. CWI regrets any inconvenience caused to our valued fans, sponsors, broadcast partners, and all other stakeholders,” mentioned Cricket West Indies in a press release.
The fans and the social media users have bombarded the online platforms including Twitter with multiple memes as the development is indeed extremely bizarre and a comical one
