The 25th match of the T20 World Cup was played between India and America. India won this match by 7 wickets. With this victory, India has entered the Super 8 round. This was the last match between India and America at Nassau Stadium. What you read is absolutely true. After this match, New York’s Nassau Stadium is disappearing from the map. You may be surprised to read this but it is true. Nassau Stadium was built temporarily for the T20 World Cup. The matches of the T20 World Cup series were organized on this ground. The India-Pakistan match was played on this ground. Now that all the scheduled matches on this ground are over, the work of demolishing this ground has started. Bulldozers and cranes have come to demolish the stadium. It took only 106 days to make the pitch. Also, Rs 250 crore was spent. However, this ground will be in the news not in the future but for the lowest score.

Nassau Stadium in New York attracted the attention of the whole world. It was the world’s largest modular stadium. The ground had a seating capacity of 30,000 people. So much so that drop-in pitches were ordered from Australia and installed. But the batsmen sweated a lot on these pitches. The batsmen were seen playing in confusion as to when the ball would hit the bat. And moreover, it was difficult to even reach the score close to 100. A total of 8 matches were played at Nassau Stadium. The highest score was 137. While chasing the runs, India has reached 110 runs on this ground.

This ground used to be a field and it will get its original form once again. Which will allow the people there to come and go without any hassle. However, nothing is confirmed yet about what will be done with the pitches of this ground. According to the ICC, this decision is to be taken by the Nassau County authorities. If they decide to maintain these pitches, they will have to take care of it. If they fail to do so, the ICC will relocate the drop-in pitches.
