India-Pakistan Clash: The T20 World Cup’s Highlight in Nassau County Stadium – A Milestone for Cricket in the US”.

The T20 World Cup is set to take place in Nassau County Ground, marking a significant moment for cricket in the United States. The event is a prelude to the sport’s return to the Olympics in Los Angeles in 2028. Cricket is being introduced to a new market, and all eyes are on how the public will receive it.

The highlight of the T20 World Cup schedule is the India-Pakistan group league game on June 9 at Nassau County Stadium, located 35 kilometers east of Manhattan. The stadium, with a capacity of 34,000, has been transformed from a municipality park to a state-of-the-art cricket venue in a short span of time. Legendary Jamaican sprinter Usain Bolt inaugurated the stadium, where eight matches will be played including three featuring India.

Head of events at ICC, Chris Tetley, assures that the Nassau County ground meets international standards, with dimensions similar to Wankhede Stadium and world-class drainage facilities. The pitches at the Nassau County Ground have been prepared in Florida under the supervision of acclaimed curator Damian Hough. Hough promises that the pitches will offer pace, bounce, and good batting conditions, ensuring an exciting tournament for players and spectators alike. The temporary galleries for the venue will be brought in from the Formula One track of Las Vegas and removed after the tournament concludes.
