A total of 8 matches were played in this stadium. Bowlers dominated in every match. The highest score on this ground was also 137 runs. Which Canada made against Ireland. This pitch is not suitable for batsmen to play in future. That is why ICC has taken this decision. Let us tell you that before the World Cup, 4 drop-in pitches were laid in Nassau Stadium while 6 pitches were laid nearby for practice. Drop-in pitches are those which are made far away from the ground or venue. Later these pitches are brought by crane or truck and laid in the stadium.
