Just a day after BCCI announced that they will quiz the abandoned second T20I match between India and West Indies at Florida, here comes a shocking news which shows that it was not the broadcasters but the two boards who asked for a delayed start after the ‘unavoidable technical problem’ took place.

ICC has now clarified the matter by taking a clear stand over this, “Taking into account the strategic considerations behind the staging of the two international matches in Florida, the match officials, on the request of the two competing Members, agreed to tweak the playing hours to allow the host broadcaster to overcome the technical difficulties,” an ICC spokesperson said.

This is an eye opener for fans as earlier it was said that the technical problem was the reason for the delay, though it was the main reason but they could have started the game as it is not the first game which is facing the technical problem. Earlier it has happened many times.

The game started after a delay of 40 minutes, those 40 minutes were enough to abandon the game as the Indian team could not play the mandatory overs that are required to be played to compute a result out of the game. Indian team might have gone to win the game to draw the series but that did not happen.
