Ended the visa problem:

Indian soldiers going to America

It has been announced that the last 2 matches between West Indies and India teams will be held in the state of Florida in the United States. But only the players never get a visa. Most of the players on both teams did not get visas to travel to the US. After this they had to go back from St. Kitts to the island of Trinidad where they had to go through the visa process. It was doubtful that the visa would be available 2 days before the start of the tournament.

In this case, it has been reported that everyone has got visa. All the Indian players have been interviewed in George Town. After this, it seems that an emergency visa has been obtained. After this, the entire West Indies team went to Florida. The Indian team left yesterday.
