49 days left for IND vs PAK T20 World Cup clash, New York Stadium outfield still not ready

Nassau County International Cricket Stadium
The Nassau County International Cricket Stadium will host seven matches in the T20 World Cup 2024, with the India vs Pakistan match taking place on June 9.

We are just 49 days away from the much-anticipated IND vs PAK clash in the T20 World Cup 2024. With a little over a month left, the outfield at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium is yet to be laid. While the intense encounter between the arch-rivals will take place on June 9, the first match at the New York Stadium will be played on June 3.

Outfield & drop-in pitch yet to be ready

Mel Jones, a former Australian women’s cricketer, shared the latest image of the stadium. From the image’s eagle-eye view, it can be seen that the outfield and the drop-in pitch are yet to be laid. According to the ICC, all things are on schedule. The drop-in pitch is being constructed, and the turfing of the outfield will start next week on April 29.
