New York City is likely to host high-octane India versus Pakistan clash at the 2024 T20 World Cup. Notably, West Indies and USA will host the next edition of the T20 World Cup together.
As reported by Cricbuzz, a new stadium facility will be erected in Eisenhower Park, 30 miles east of New York. It will spread across 930 acres in East Meadow.
Reportedly, ICC wanted similar facility in Van Cortlandt Park in Bronx but locals resisted to the plan due to which ICC dropped the plan.
ICC quickly negotiated with Nassau County – the administrator of the Eisenhower Park and reached an agreement.
The successful hosting of the 20 games of the 2024 T20 World Cup awarded to the USA is being regarded as a huge opportunity for ICC to prove the worth of game.
ICC is likely to woo International Olympic Committee to include cricket as one of the sport for the major event.
Earlier, New York legislator Jenifer Rajkumar – first Indian-American woman in the state’s Assembly requested the International Cricket Council chairman Greg Barclay to allow some matches of the 2024 T20 World Cup to her state.
