Dhoni bats for more matches in US

‘This is one place where we can come back and play lot of cricket maybe a triangular or a four-nation ODI or T20 series’
29ind-fans1The world cricket can afford to have more Twenty20 matches in the Unites States of America despite a crammed international schedule since it is a good venue for the game, India captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni suggested.

The short T2O series between India and the West Indies ended with abandonment of the second match, giving the Caribbean a 1-0 series win.

Asked to comment on cricket’s debut in the US, Dhoni said they would like to come back and play here more.

“This is one place where we can come back and play lot of cricket maybe a triangular or a four-nation ODI or T20 series.

It will be better to play T20s to start off. The venue looks good. It will also give us time to spend more time in the US, we played back to back games. It will easily fit into our schedule because at this time of year we don’t play many games at home,” Dhoni said at the post match presentation ceremony.

“Yes it will be a bit cramped for international cricketers but I don’t think the modern cricketers mind it. Also the money making ability of this place, the spectators will come, the time suits broadcasters. It’s a win win
situation for every one. It’s a good venue to continue cricket,” Dhoni added.

Asked about cricket in US, Brathwaite said,”Most definitely we would love to come here back again. Fantastic field, fantastic wicket. We had discussion if we can come here again.”
