USA vs. PAK 2024, T20 World Cup 2024 Match: Pitch Report, Weather Update, Important Players, head-to-head Statistics, and Playing XI Projection

Today’s 2024 T20 World Cup match pits the United States vs Pakistan. In an effort to move the turmoil surrounding the captaincy situation behind them, Pakistan, captained by Babar Azam, will play their first World Cup match in Dallas on Thursday against a team that is riding high.

Pakistan are coming into this match with unenviable form, having lost a T20 series against England 0-2 with the forms of their top players under scanner. USA, meanwhile, have started the tournament well and will be playing in the same pitch where they had decimated Canada in the opening encounter.

US vs Pakistan: Anticipated XIs

The following is the USA’s anticipated starting lineup: Steven Taylor, Andries Gous, Aaron Jones, Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Nitish Kumar, Jasdeep Singh, Saurabh Netravalkar, Ali Khan, Shadley Van Schalkwyk/Nostush Kenjige, Monank Patel (captain & wicketkeeper).

Player to look out for from the USA: Aaron Jones, who made waves with a gutsy 94 against Canada, will be the center of attention. With 10 sixes in a T20 World Cup match, he is only behind Chris Gayle’s 11 against England in Mumbai in 2016.

The predicted starting eleven for Pakistan is: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Usman Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Shadab Khan, Azam Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Abrar Ahmed, Shaheen Shah Afridi, Haris Rauf/Mohammad Amir, and Naseem Shah.

Pakistani player(s) to be aware of: Pakistan’s preferred pairing in previous T20 World Cup editions has been Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan; in the 2021 edition, the pair even played a 10-wicket demolition job against India.
