The T20 World Cup 2024 will witness an exciting match between India and Pakistan, held in New York.

India’s match against Pakistan in a temporary stadium near New York will be the main event of the initial phase of next year’s T20 World Cup. The full schedule is expected to be approved by the International Cricket Council and local organizing committees on Friday.
Both India and Pakistan, along with eight other teams, will play all their opening group-stage matches in the United States. The organizers aim to attract the large cricket-loving expat communities in America.
Although some changes to the schedule are still possible, England and Australia will compete in the Caribbean for all their group-stage games. It is understood that England will play their matches in Antigua, Barbados, and St Lucia, while Australia will visit St Vincent, Guyana, and Trinidad.
The International Cricket Council has recently inspected the Caribbean venues, and although some improvements are needed, no major issues have been found. The location for the final match has yet to be confirmed, but Barbados is the likely host, having previously held the finals of the 2007 50-over World Cup and the 2010 T20 event.
In the United States, three venues will be used for the tournament: Central Broward Park in Florida, Grand Prairie Stadium in Texas, and Eisenhower Park on Long Island, near New York City. A temporary stadium with a seating capacity of 34,000 will be constructed for the event, considering the significant Indian and Pakistani populations in New York.
Given the time difference of 10-and-a-half hours between New York and New Delhi, organizers have agreed to schedule some matches, particularly involving India, with morning starts to accommodate Indian television audiences.
England, the defending champions from the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia, have been on a white-ball tour in the West Indies. They have previously played in both Antigua and Barbados, gaining valuable experience for their return in June. However, their last visit to St Lucia was in 2019.
