New York, June 13: It was the centre of attraction on June 9, for hosting the crucial Indo-Pak clash during the ongoing ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024. 

 It also hosted seven other matches of the ICC multi-nation tourney. But since it is a makeshift stadium, so if reports are to be trusted then it would be dismantled in six weeks time.

 The pop-up Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York, will be disassembled in almost six weeks, according to a report.

The venue that played host to eight matches of the T20 World Cup will be returned to its original state with free public access to its grassy surface.

The work to dismantle the stadium, housed in Eisenhower Park, has actually started after the last game at the venue between India and the co-hosts USA on Wednesday (as per IST), a Cricbuzz report said.

The makeshift stadium was constructed at a rapid speed of just 106 days with drop-in pitches prepared in Florida after getting shipped from Adelaide, Australia in December last year. After that, the pitches were relocated to New York in the end of April, and in early May they were fixed in the main square and practice area.

The fate of the pitches is still uncertain with the International Cricket Council (ICC) leaving it to Nassau County authorities to take the call on its future.

"If they want to keep them and handle the required maintenance, they can," Cricbuzz quoted an ICC official as saying.

If not, the ICC will move the drop-in pitches, which have been the topic of intense debate for the past two weeks, to a location where they will be required. The outfield will stay at its current location, the report said.

However, the proposal to host a few Major League Cricket (MLC) games at the stadium was not accepted by the franchises. New York is the base for the MLC franchise MI New York and their owners are expected to build a new stadium at a different location in the near future, it added.

If cricket gets more popularity after the T20 World Cup 2024, then co-hosts of the tournament may also prepare permanent international standard cricket stadiums in future. (With IANS support)
