In a groundbreaking development, the 2024 T20 World Cup match between India and Pakistan will take place in New York City as part of the tournament hosted jointly by the West Indies and the United States (US).
The match is scheduled to be held in a state-of-the-art stadium in East Meadow, New York, with a capacity for 34,000 spectators. The US is anticipated to host around 20 matches during the 2024 T20 World Cup.
This marks the inaugural occasion when India and Pakistan will clash on American soil. The rivalry between these two cricketing nations is renowned for generating immense excitement and fan enthusiasm.
The 2024 T20 World Cup is a significant event in the cricket calendar and also offers a unique opportunity to promote cricket in the US, a crucial market for the International Cricket Council (ICC).
The ICC has been actively engaged in fostering cricket in the US over several years, launching initiatives such as the Major League Cricket (MLC) tournament. The MLC has already garnered a substantial viewership and has attracted top-tier players from around the world. It is poised to play a pivotal role in advancing cricket’s growth in the US.
The decision to host the India-Pakistan match during the 2024 T20 World Cup in the United States represents a monumental stride forward for cricket in America. It is expected to generate significant excitement, garner interest from new fans, and contribute to the sport’s expansion.
The ICC envisions that this match will enhance the sport’s visibility, drawing in new sponsors and investors as it continues to evolve in the United States.
