The historic New York City is likely to host the India-Pakistan T20 World Cup clash next year, according to Cricbuzz. The International Cricket Council (ICC) is all set to proclaim a 34000-seater pop-up facility about 30 miles to the east of New York for the much-anticipated 9th edition of the T20 World Cup.

The rivalry between India and Pakistan is arguably the most-watched one today, regardless of where it takes place. The 2022 T20 World Cup match between the two sides at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG) was attended by a whopping 90293 fans.

Dallas and Florida are the other shortlisted cities to host the T20 World Cup. ICC Chief Geoff Allardice stated that he is excited about the Modular Stadium Technology to give the fans the best experience at the stadium and believes its history bodes well for the tournament.

"We are very excited about the opportunity to use modular stadium technology to present world class cricket in a location that has not previously hosted an ICC global event giving USA cricket fans the chance to watch the world's best on their doorstep," Allardice said, as quoted by ESPN Cricinfo.

"This technology has been used at previous ICC events to increase venue capacity and it's routinely used in other major sports around the world. In the USA, it will give us the opportunity to increase the size of the venues in both Dallas and Florida and create what is going to be a stunning venue in New York."

It will also be the 2nd time that the West Indies hosts the tournament, having done once in 2010. However, USA will stage it for the first time. With plenty of diaspora present in USA, one can expect a massive crowd for the fixtures.

England to be the defending champions for the 2nd time:

Meanwhile, England will be the defending champions for the 2nd time ahead of the T20 World Cup. Led by Jos Buttler, the Englishmen defeated Pakistan by 5 wickets at the MCG in the 2022 T20 World Cup final.

It was also England's 2nd T20 World Cup crown, having won their first in 2010 under Paul Collingwood. India and Pakistan won T20 World Cups in 2007 and 2009, respectively.
