New York's T20 World Cup Venue that hosted India vs Pak match to be dismantled

| @indiablooms | 14 Jun 2024, 01:11 am

After hosting eight games of the ongoing T20 World Cup, the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, a temporary yet significant venue located in New York's Long Island is set to be dismantled on Friday.

Constructed in just five months, India's Group A fixture against co-hosts USA on Wednesday was the last game to be played at the venue.

In a viral video, bulldozers were seen parked outside the stadium, ready to dismantle the temporary venue.

While the modular components of the stadium will be dismantled, local cricket clubs and fans will continue to have access to the top-tier turf and infrastructure.

The Nassau County International Stadium hosted the blockbuster India vs Pakistan clash with massive spectators turning up for the match.

This will help boost the sport's popularity in the region and provide a platform for developing local talent.

On Wednesday, Suryakumar Yadav hit an unbeaten half-century and left-arm seamer Arshdeep Singh claimed a career-best 4-9 as India defeated the United States by seven wickets to reach the T20 World Cup Super 8 stage
