The officials from the two boards - BCCI and WICB -- met in Florida on Wednesday and Thursday to discuss the possibility of arranging a three-match T20 series between India and West Indies in the US for the first time in history. However, visa and scheduling issues could derail the chances of the series going ahead.
The officials met at the the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida, where six CPL 2016 games will be played.
Getting visas is not the only issue as there are other logistical hurdles as well which BCCI and WICB need to overcome.
India are supposed to host New Zealand in September at the former's home, starting from September 22. It will be difficult for the Indian cricketers if BCCI decide to squeeze in a three-match T20 series after the conclusion of the ongoing Test series against the West Indies, which is scheduled to end on August 22.
The stadium in Florida is available from August 24-27. WICB are trying to convince the stadium authorities so that they get one more extra day. But it will be difficult as the Fort Lauderdale Strikers, who play in the North American Soccer League and are also the primary tenants of the facility, will return to training. The Lauderhill facility is also their home ground.
According to a report in Cricinfo, the BCCI and WICB will have further discussions on the above mentioned issues and then a final call on this proposed T20 series will be taken.
