T20 World Cup 2024: India book berth in Super Eights after defeating USA

NEW YORK – India marched into the Super 8 stage of the T20 World Cup 2024 with a nail-biting win of seven wickets over the USA in New York on Wednesday. 

Suryakumar Yadav (50) and Shivam Dube (31) stitched the middle order partnership, guiding their side to next round of the mega cricket event. 

India lost three wickets of their top order – Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Rishab Pant – in early blows. At this point Yadav and Dube showed fireworks with bat as the Team Blue achieved the target of 111 runs in 18.2 overs.

USA set 111 runs target for India to win the 25th match of the World Cup 2024 in New York.

India won the toss and elected to field first against USA and restricted the host at 110-8 after 20 overs.

Arshdeep Singh took four wickets while Hardik Pandya got two wickets.

Both teams from Group A are facing off at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York. The Indian team's captain, Rohit Sharma, won the toss and chose to field.

Both teams have won two matches each in the tournament and are playing their third match today. The team that wins today’s match will qualify for the Super Eight.

If USA wins today then Pakistan will be eliminated from the mega event. Pakistan registered only one victory against Canada yesterday.

After winning the toss the Indian Captain Rohit Sharma said, “We will bowl first. It has played better in the last two games, but you need to assess the conditions quickly and then let the game take over. It's all about constantly getting better and keeping the momentum going. It's important to do the right things. That was a great game to play, we didn't have enough runs on the board, but the bowlers came to the party and won the game for us. We're playing the same team."
