Pakistan skipper Babar Azam lamented his team's poor bowling as the cause of their shocking defeat against the USA in the 2024 T20 World Cup. He said that his bowlers didn't utilize first six overs effectively. Babar added that shifted the blame on spinners for not taking wickets in the middle overs.

"We were not up to the mark in the first 6 overs with the ball. Our spinners also did not take wickets in the middle overs so these things cost us." Pakistan captain said.

"Very hard, all credit to USA, they played better than us in all three departments. Little bit of moisture in the pitch, it was also two-paced. As a professional you need to assess the conditions." he added.

Pakistan will play their next match against arch-rivals India at the newly built Nassau County Internatioanl Stadium in New York. If Men in Green lose the match against Rohit Sharma-led side, then they will be out of the tournament.
