Despite a top-order collapse against a spirited USA team, India sealed a convincing seven-wicket win over the hosts at the Nassau County International Stadium in New York on Wednesday (June 12th, 2024). Suryakumar Yadav stepped up with a calm and composed half-century and stitched an unbroken 67-run stand with Shivam Dube to take the tourists over the line.

USA vs IND Preview

India’s formidable batting lineup is ready to overcome the difficulties of a challenging drop-in pitch as they prepare to face an impressive yet inexperienced USA team in their T20 World Cup group match on Wednesday. India, classified as A1 regardless of points, requires just one more victory to confirm their place in the Super Eight. Despite the unpredictable nature of the Nassau County track, they are determined to avoid a repeat of their previous game against Pakistan, where they lost their last seven wickets for a mere 28 runs.

Arshdeep Singh starred for India with 4 wickets for 9 runs while Hardik Pandya bagged a couple of scalps. For the co-hosts, Nitish Kumar top-scored with 27 runs while Steven Taylor made 24 while the rest failed to fire.

United States Of America - 110/8 (20 ovs) in New York. Nitish Kumar (27), Arshdeep Singh (4/9), Hardik Pandya (2/14)

Nitish Kumar: "I think we're disappointed to get this score from where we were (at one stage of our innings), we are 20 runs short, but we've the runs on the board, the wicket isn't the easiest and we'll look to defend. The crowd is always behind us and it's nice to play in front of them."

8.07 pm - Second scalp in the first over for Arshdeep. WICKET! Andries Gous c Hardik Pandya b Arshdeep Singh 2 (5 balls). USA 3/2 in 0.6 ovs

8.02 pm - India strike through Arshdeep Singh with the first ball of the match. WICKET! Shayan Jahangir lbw b Arshdeep Singh 0 (1 ball)

India XI: Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj

7.36 pm - Team India are unchanged for this game, which means out-of-form Shivam Dube will get another chance to get back among the runs if he gets to bat. For the Americans, Shayan Jahangir replaces Monank Patel and Shadley van Schalkwyk is in for Nosthush

Pitch Report

"The square boundaries are at 70m and 66m while the straight hit is at 72m. Bowlers will have to hit the hard lengths, batters can't really play the cross-batted shots. The bowlers will look to get the natural variation off a hard length and a back of the length. Chasing is the best way to go," reckon Ebony-Rainford Brent and Steve Smith, in their pitch report

High-Stakes Strategy

Against the USA, India might employ a high-risk, high-reward strategy similar to that of Pakistan’s, but with the aim of reaping greater benefits.

A Special Match for Indian-Americans

For a dedicated group of Indian-American players such as Saurabh Netravalkar and Harmeet Singh, this game carries special significance. Although their aspirations of representing India were never realised, they now have the chance to compete against their country of origin and possibly achieve a significant upset against one of cricket’s powerhouses.

Squads:

India: Rohit Sharma(c), Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant(w), Suryakumar Yadav, Shivam Dube, Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Axar Patel, Jasprit Bumrah, Arshdeep Singh, Mohammed Siraj, Yuzvendra Chahal, Sanju Samson, Kuldeep Yadav, Yashasvi Jaiswal

United States: Steven Taylor, Monank Patel(w/c), Andries Gous, Aaron Jones, Nitish Kumar, Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Jasdeep Singh, Nosthush Kenjige, Saurabh Netravalkar, Ali Khan, Nisarg Patel, Shayan Jahangir, Milind Kumar, Shadley van Schalkwyk
