SHARMA EYES TEAM INDIA ACCLIMATIZATION EARLY AT NEW YORK VENUE

Sharma, furthermore, cited the need for Team India to be acclimatized early at the T20 World Cup’s venue in New York.

He said the team needs to familiarize the playing conditions at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium.

“We’re looking to understand the conditions more importantly (before the tournament proper) as we haven’t been here before,” Sharma said.

Additionally, India is scheduled to face Bangladesh in a warm-up match on Saturday.

Team India will make its T20 World Cup debut against Ireland on June 5.

“It’s just about getting into that rhythm of getting the feel of the ground, pitch, and stuff like that,” Sharma added.

“It looks beautiful. It’s quite an open ground,” Sharma said on the New York stadium.

He is looking at the New York crowd to support the T20 World Cup.

“People in New York will be very interested in coming and watching the World Cup, as it is happening for the first time here,” Sharma said.

Meanwhile, the India vs Pakistan match will be held in Long Island, New York.
