Nassau Stadium Pitch Report: It’ll be a tough day for batters once again in New York. It seems like after seeing bowlers get thrashed left and right in the IPL 2024, the cricket gods have decided to punish batters by making them bat in Nassau. The drop-in pitch has made batters want to drop their bats and pick up the ball. At this point, no one is asking what to expect from the surface in the India vs USA match.

India vs USA Pitch Report: Pacers paradise expected at Nassau Stadium?

The pitch in New York is a bowler’s paradise. Pacers will get good bounce and swing in the powerplay, but funnily enough, that is also one of the best times to bat on the surface. The outfield makes it tough to hit fours, and so the first six overs will allow batters to go to aerial without paying a huge price.

The surface isn’t great to bat first, but chasing isn’t exactly easy either. The batters continue to find it difficult to time the ball, with India and South Africa defending 119 and 113 in back-to-back matches. Running hard is important here with a slow outfield, and if runs aren’t coming through boundaries, toiling hard in between 22 yards is important.


The average first-inning score here is 107, and given how good the Indian bowling line-up is, even 90 can be defended successfully. What should a captain do? Bat first, because chasing any total against good bowlers is next to impossible here.
