A key moment took place during the T20 World Cup 2024 match between India and the United States of America (USA) that proved to be decisive for the former. The Men in Blue were awarded 5 runs as the USA incurred a penalty as the fans were wondering why it was done so.

The reason behind the penalty was that the home side took over a minute thrice in the innings to start a new over. A chat ensued between umpire Paul Reiffel and skipper Aaron Jones following which the announcement came about. The stop-clock rule was unveiled in March 2024, under which the fielding team will receive two warnings after which a five-run penalty will be imposed. As per the rule, it says:

"The CEC agreed to introduce a stop clock on a trial basis in men's ODI and T20I cricket from December 2023 to April 2024. The clock will be used to regulate the amount of time taken between overs. If the bowling team is not ready to bowl the next over within 60 seconds of the previous over being completed, a 5-run penalty will be imposed the third time it happens in an innings."

At the end of the 15th over, Rohit Sharma and co. were 76-3 while chasing 111 and the equation stood at a tricky 35 requiring off 30 deliveries.

Suryakumar Yadav and Arshdeep Singh play central roles as India win by 7 wickets:

On a tricky New York surface, the Indian bowlers came up with the goods once again headlined by Arshdeep Singh, who picked up 2 wickets in the opening over. While both Jasprit Bumrah and Mohammed Siraj went wicketless, Arshdeep took 4, Hardik Pandya snared 2, and Axar Patel took a solitary scalp.

Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli fell cheaply once again as Saurabh Netravalkar nipped them out. Ali Khan ended Rishabh Pant's stay, but Suryakumar Yadav and Shivam Dube were in no mood to let the game drift away. The two shared an unbroken 67-run stand, with Suryakumar finishing with an unbeaten 50.
