Former India cricketer turned commentator, a respectable figure in the cricketing fraternity, had an embarrassing experience in USA before the start of the second T20 International match between India and West Indies. Gavaskar was denied entry into the Central Broward Regional Park Stadium Turf Ground in Lauderhill by security officials who failed to recognise him. He was one of the commentators, part of the broadcasting team. The safety,security standards in USA have been known to quite strict, as a number of times Bollywood superstar Shahrukh Khan has also been detained at airports. Despite being a global icon, Shahrukh was stopped at Los Angeles Airport a few weeks back. Gavaskar’s case therefore, doesn’t come as a surprise. Full Cricket Scorecard: India vs West Indies, 2nd T20I at Lauderhill 

 

 

Meanwhile, the second T20I between India and West Indies has been called off due to wet outfield. As a result of this, West Indies win the series 1-0. West Indies won the first game of the tournament by one run. India were set a target of 144 and would have been confident of winning the match. Full Cricket Updates, IND vs WI, 2nd T20I 2016

There was a 40-minute delay to the beginning of the match due to technical issues. The broadcast was stopped halfway through the toss and took some time in getting things sorted. However, India won the toss once again and decided to bowl first, just like they did in the first match.

India made one change to their playing XI from the first game. They got in leg-spinner Amit Mishra in place of Stuart Binny, who conceded 32 in his only over. West Indies on the other hand went in with an unchanged side as a result, Chris Gayle stayed out yet again.
