Nassau County International Cricket Stadium was constructed only as a temporary venue for the ongoing T20 World Cup. The encounter between India vs USA was the final T20 World Cup fixture in the stadium.

The stadium was selected due to its favourable logistics and lesser ecological impact, compared to other locations.

Following the completion of the match between India and USA, the dismantling of the stadium began. In a video surfaced on various social media platforms showed bulldozers being placed at the venue for the process.

The stadium consisted of ten drop-in pitches, four for the main ground and six for the nearby training facility in Cantiague Park. They were prepared by the Adelaide Turf International and maintained in Florida during the colder months, before it's installation in New York.
