India and West Indies played two Twenty20 matches in the United States
West Indies won the first match by one run
The second match was washed out due to rain
The ICC will discuss the the 40-minute dealy to the start of the second Twenty20 International between India and West Indies in Lauderhill on Sunday in its annual workshop for match officials next month.
The delay at the start of the game, for "technical" reasons, robbed the match of a result with rain arriving two overs into the second innings.
As the ground conditions were perfect at the regulation start time, the match would have been past the halfway mark of its second innings had it started on time. Only five overs in each innings are required to be bowled for a result in T20 matches.
"At next month's annual workshop, the match officials will be discussing a wide range of topics, including the second T20I in Florida," an ICC spokesperson was quoted as saying on 'ESPNcricinfo'.
The ICC playing conditions have guidelines for delays for only three reasons: rain, poor light, unfit playing surface.
