After Saturday's batting firecrackers, any reprise presentation may have attempted to match it. Yet, things did not go too – in part down to sub-tropical summer climate, in part down to specialized matters. The outcome brings up issues about the most ideal approach to push ahead with universal cricket in the United States.
A day prior, a close sellout swarm had viewed a surprising cricketing showcase, and one that went off without issues. However on Sunday morning in Florida, the match began late and finished early.
There was disarray around the stadium as the start of the match was deferred. A few individuals from the press and the off camera specialized staff reported being informed that the issue needed to do with the satellite food. The whole purpose of beginning the match in the breakfast hour in Florida was to air it on prime time TV in India – along these lines, no TV sustain, no match.
Fans around the ground were kept oblivious, in any case, and boos erupted as unexplained deferrals were declared.
At that point came the downpours. They'd kept away all weekend with the exception of a couple light sprinkles on Saturday. Halfway through Sunday's match, be that as it may, the skies opened and one of the exuberant storms South Florida summers are known for, touched base at the stadium. Downpour blew sideways as fans in the revealed, impermanent stands dashed for spread. When the short however savage tempest finished, the field was rendered unplayable.

This additional to an inclination among some that the match was being promoted exclusively for an exile and Indian-American business sector to the detriment of developing the diversion all the more generally in America.
By far most of fans in the ground were Indians or Indian-Americans, in spite of the fact that smatterings of West Indian fans could likewise be found. Harder to discover were Americans with no past association with cricket, in spite of the fact that there were a few. Sidik Alhassan had never been to a cricket match. He clarified some of his companions had persuaded him to drive down with them from the condition of Georgia, around nine hours away via auto.
"The greater part of my companions are Indian," he said, "so I've watched a considerable measure of cricket. This is my first match however.
"I've been to (American) football games, b-ball games, ball games – however I've never been to a cricket amusement," he said, including that the climate was awesome and he would go to another on the off chance that he could.
Uday Poosarla flew in from Dallas. He talks gladly of his authority part in Dallas-territory youth cricket, where many adolescents partake in the amusement. He trusts all the more prominent matches, for example, this can rouse more youngsters to take up the diversion – on the off chance that they can have admittance to them. "It's long due," he said.
