11 June, 2024

The New York cricket stadium has witnessed several low scoring encounters in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 in the United States.

Popularly known as the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium, the New York cricket stadium is a new modular, temporary venue that is constructed on the grounds of Eisenhower Park in East Meadow, New York.

With a seating capacity of 34,000, the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium will stage eight T20 World Cup 2024 matches.

Having already hosted seven of the eight games, the pitches at the New York cricket stadium have been heavily criticised for being substandard and at times extremely dangerous.

The primary focus has been on the drop-in pitches used as no team has crossed 140 in the seven games played at the venue in the ongoing T20 World Cup.

With that being said, we take a look at New York cricket stadium’s highest score
