Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid visited Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. India will play three Twenty20 World Cup matches here. This was their first visit, and they thought the pitch looked “normal and good,” which was good news for the batters.

The stadium is in Eisenhower Park and has special pitches brought in for the matches. Some people are worried about how the pitches will behave. During a practice session at Cantiague Park, some balls from Kuldeep Yadav stayed low, causing concern. But Rohit and Dravid are happy with the conditions at the stadium.

On Friday, Rohit and Dravid had a photo session with the World Cup trophy on the field, organized by the International Cricket Council (ICC).

The Indian team had a full practice session at Cantiague Park on Thursday afternoon. Even though it rained the night before and the ground was wet, everyone had to attend. There was no specific order for batting, and batters were called randomly. Rohit Sharma, who will open for India, batted in the middle of the session.

Virat Kohli is expected to reach New York on Friday, May 31. He was seen leaving Mumbai airport on Thursday. He should be in New York in time for India’s warm-up game against Bangladesh on June 1, but it needs to be clarified if he will play.

On Friday morning, the Indian team will have an optional training session at Cantiague Park before their warm-up game. India will play their league games on June 5 (against Ireland), June 9 (against Pakistan), and June 12 (against Ireland), all in New York. Their last league game is in Miami (against Canada) before they go to the Caribbean for the Super Eight matches and knockout games.
