Just like the second T20I between West Indies and India, the third game between the two teams will also be delayed. The second game was delayed as the luggage of the Men in Blue didn’t arrive on time. Notably, Cricket Windies didn’t specify the reasons and said the luggage didn’t arrive ‘due to circumstances beyond their control’. Meanwhile, the board has issued a statement saying that the third game between the two teams has been postponed.

The statement explains that both teams have agreed to a delayed start so that they get enough time to recover. It also mentions the back-to-back fourth and fifth games of the series to be played in Florida, US. The statement added that the gates of the venue will be open for the fans one and half hours before the start of the match. The statement concluded with the details of the tickets sales.

“Following the delayed start on Monday, the teams have agreed to start the third Goldmedal T20 Cup match at a later time to ensure that the players receive adequate rest and recover time for the back-to-back matches in St Kitts and in consideration of the back-to-back matches to come in Florida”, a statement from Cricket Windies read.

“Stadium gates will open at 10:30am. Tickets are still available from the stadium box office for the matches in St Kitts with mounds/grounds tickets at US$15/EC$40 and seats from US$30/EC$80, or can be purchased directly through Windies Tickets, presented by Mastercard at “tickets.windiestickets.com” to save direct to your mobile device”, the statement added.

The match will be played at Warner Park in Basseterre in St. Kitts. The second game was also played at the same venue where the hosts won by five wickets to level the series 1-1. Now, both teams will fight to take lead in the series before heading to the United States of America for the last two games of the series.
