In USA, Dhawan, Ashwin, Bhuvneshwar meet NBA team Miami Heat’s players

Indian cricket team had some awesome time during the Test series against West Indies in the Caribbean. The two Twenty20 International (T20I) match series wasn’t decided but suddenly both the teams’ boards came up with it at the eleventh hour and with a condition of playing in the United States of America (USA).

India’s T20 side is all set to play their first international match in Florida. Most of the players have already reached there and few of them were seen enjoying with some famous basketball players. Shikhar Dhawan along with Ravichandran Ashwin and Bhuvneshwar Kumar paid a visit to Miami Heat, which is a professional American basketball team. ALSO READ: Darren Sammy’s “blessings” give Carlos Brathwaite confidence

So far, four T20I matches have been played in Florida and the last T20I match was played back in June 30, 2012 between West India and New Zealand. Last year, there was a three-match T20 series named Cricket All-Stars League, organised by Sachin Tendulkar and Shane Warne, which was played in the USA and it got huge response and with West Indies and India playing there, once again some excellent response is expected.
