The United States Of America (USA) cricketers Ali Khan and Aaron Jones recreated hilarious West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell's interview from the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) after the co-hosts qualified for the Super 8 berth in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024.

The USA secured their berth in the spot after the Group A match against Ireland was abandoned due to torrential rain in Florida on Friday, June 14. The USA have accumulated five points and will finish at the second spot behind India in their group. With the co-hosts qualified for the second round of the tournament, Pakistan have been knocked out of the showpiece event.

After the USA earned their qualification for the Super 8, the players heaved a sigh of relief and the atmosphere in the dressing seemed to lift as the tensions melted away. The USA players were engaged in fun banter, especially Ali and Aaron Jones.

In a video shared by the ICC on its Instagram handle, Khan was seen interviewing Jones by acting as the person who interviewed Andre Russell in the BPL.

"First World Cup, you perform. What happening?" asked Ali Khan to Aaron Jones.

In response, Jones said, "What you mean?"

The hilarious interview between Ali Khan and Aaron Jones caught the attention of West Indies all-rounder Andre Russell, who was left in splits.

In the comment section, Russell, wrote, "lol 🤣what you mean!!!"

USA have had a dream run in the ongoing edition of the T20 World Cup 2024. They kicked off their campaign with a win over Canada in the tournament tournament. Thereafter, the co-hosts pulled off a biggest upset by defeating former champions Pakistan in the Super Over, thanks to Saurabh Netravelkar's bowling brilliance.

In their third match of the group stage, the USA suffered the first defeat of the tournament as they lost to the India. Monank Patel-led side would have hoped to move to top of the Group A table with a win over Ireland, but the rain played the spoilsport.

The USA are placed in Group B alongside the co-hosts West Indies and South Africa. The team that will finish on the top of Group B will join them.
