NEW YORK: The mega clash of the T20 Men’s World Cup is set to take place in New York today for which fans of both the teams have arrived in the city in a large number with Pakistan’s consul general urging diaspora to come out and support the Green Shirts.

Tickets for the match at the Nassau Stadium with a capacity of 34,000 seats were sold out weeks back mostly in the black at double rates of the ones fixed by the International Cricket Council. 

Pakistan will play their second match against India today and its players are under immense pressure after the team’s poor performance against USA in the first match which it lost in the super over. The match will start at 7:30pm PST.

Reports said that experts and the ICC were not satisfied with the pitch at the stadium in New York and it could be unpredictable for both the batters and the bowlers.

Meanwhile, Azam Khan, who performed poorly in Pakistan’s match against the USA and could not score even a single run has been dropped for today’s match and Immad Wasim may be included in the squad today.
