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.
