India vs Pakistan To Turn Edgbaston Stadium Into A Fan Park On 9 June

As the days approach for the T20 World Cup 2024, the preparations are underway, along with a buzzing excitement among players, fans and the team management. 

Almost all teams are practicing hard to compete in the 9th edition of the tournament. The World Cup is to be jointly hosted by the United States of America and West Indies

The event will feature 20 teams who will compete in a total of 55 matches that will span across the host countries. India‘s first match in the tournament is going to be against Ireland on June 5, while their 2nd match of the season is to be the fan-favorite India vs Pakistan on 9 June.

Even though the match is going to be held in Manhattan, USA, a lot of preparations are being made in the UK too, as the country has probably one of the highest population of Indian and Pakistani migrants.

The ICC is now providing fans from UK to get a live screening of the highly anticipated match between these two teams. 

The Edgbaston Stadium will be transformed into a huge fan park for the highly anticipated India-Pakistan ICC T20 World Cup match next month. Up to 8,000 fans are expected to flock to Edgbaston for the match on Sunday June 9 after the ICC confirmed it will be one of only a handful of venues worldwide to host the game.

Edgbaston Chief Executive Stuart Cain, said: “We’re the only venue in the country to have been chosen by the ICC as a T20 World Cup Fan Zone location which is amazing.

“It’s an opportunity for our local communities to really feel part of the T20 World Cup experience and I’m sure it will be a fantastic occasion.

“Pakistan and India fans generated an electric atmosphere here in the 2019 Cricket World Cup and I’ve no doubt we can get close to replicating that in the Fan Zone.” 

The park will not only screen a match but will also be including performances by comedian and cricket commentator Aatif Nawaz and former cricket stars from India and Pakistan.

There is going to be a “family picnic area” for people to easily enjoy their day while also getting entertained by the match.

Where will the Ind vs Pak match be held

Team India will compete against Ireland on 5 June in their first match for the tournament, and will face off against long time rivals, Pakistan on June 9 2024. 

Both the matches are scheduled to be held in the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. 

The pitches for this tournament have been dropped in, after production by “Adelaide Oval” curated by Damien Hugh.

Speaking about 34,000-seat stadium in Eisenhower Park in Nassau County, east of Manhattan, the head of events at ICC, Chris Tetley said that the ground is almost as big as Wankhede Stadium or Gabba Stadium. 

Tetley said the playing field at the stadium was “not a token size” but a “fully-fledged international standard cricket ground” with dimensions of 75 yards east and west, and 67 yards north and south.

“We are around about as big as the Gabba, or The Oval or Wankhede Stadium in terms of playing area,” he added.
