Indian team is heading towards the time of the scheduled match of T20I against West Indies, the series is tend to start from August 27 and likely to end on the next day, consisting two consecutive games. Indian team in Caribbean land took the lead in Test series by 2-0. India won the first and the third games where as the other two ended as draw. There was a quick decision of playing a T20I series between both the countries as Boards of both countries approved and will be playing on the ground of USA. It is said that the area of the ground is small and both the teams will be having no problems in scoring runs.
MS Dhoni, who will be playing after a long break says that there will be no problem in taking in taking down the Caribbeans on American ground and expects a huge crowd cheering for his team rather than West Indies.
“As fas as effort is concerned, I always felt the USA was big market, a lot of sub-continent people stay here, not only Indians. I feel it is a good start. The timings (broadcast) are also good. It feels good to be here. Earlier people living in US used to travel to the the West Indies to support us but now they have the opportunity to catch the action here itself,” said Dhoni.
“I would say in limited overs format, the West Indies are extraordinary. They have the right balance, they are entertaining as well. It will be very interesting (the two match series). It is an early morning start here but it won’t make much of a difference,”
“During this (break) time, fitness is quite easy to maintain. The reason is you have ample time to prepare. What becomes a slight issue is the cricketing aspect. There was a lot of rain back home in India so most of the schedule was indoor with a bit of bowling machine to go with it. There was not much outdoor activity. Anyway feels good to be back. Also, this year we won’t be playing a lot of limited overs cricket so this gives us an opportunity to make the most of two days we have.” the limited overs captain analysed.
