“We are in New York, because New York is a hub for cricket fans and we are bringing some of the most awaited cricket matches to this venue,” ICC Head of Events Chris Tetley told reporters.

This year’s Cricket World Cup took place in America and the West Indies. The matches of this tournament will be played at nine venues across North America, including New York, which will include a 34,000-seat stadium in Nassau County.

ICC wrote while sharing a picture of Nassau County Cricket Ground: “ICYMI, the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium which will host eight #T20WC24 matches, including the India-Pakistan clash, has been unveiled”

Cricket fans will know that in the history of cricket, matches between India and Pakistan have received more attention than any other cricket match. Citizens of both the rival countries also see the cricket field as a battlefield.

Complicated schedule

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has said that this year’s T20 World Cup schedule to be held in the US and West Indies is the “most complicated” schedule ever.

A record 20 teams will participate in this tournament, which is more than the 16 teams in the 2022 edition.

Hosts USA will play their opening match against neighbors Canada in The Dalles on June 1, while West Indies will open their campaign against Papua New Guinea in Guyana. The final will be played on June 29 in Bridgetown, Barbados.

Chris Tetley said, “In my experience, this has been the most complicated match schedule ever for this tournament. In terms of the number of matches and the number of teams, this is the biggest T20 World Cup ever.

The US hosted its own T20 franchise league Major League Cricket last year with MI New York winning the inaugural title.

According to Chris Tetley: ‘I see it (the T20 World Cup) as an amazing opportunity to tap into the interest within the US.’

The Cricket World Cup in New York is featured on breakfast chat shows in a way that was unheard of not long ago.

The New York Stadium was designed by Population, a company that has designed some of the world’s most famous venues, including New York’s Yankee Stadium and London’s Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
