India beat the West Indies by 68 runs on Friday in Tarouba, Trinidad, in the first of five T20s.
“Due to circumstances beyond CWI’s control, there have been significant delays in crucial team luggage arriving into St. Kitts from Trinidad,” the organization said.
The last two matches of the T20 series will be played at Lauderhill in Florida.
