USA vs CAN 2024 Highlights 6-2-2024

Watch cricket video highlights of ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 first match between United States of America vs Canada. Venue of the match will be Dallas.

Only one of the four warm-up games that were planned for here was played. Canada batted first in that match and scored 183 for 7. Nepal responded by going all out for 120. However, there’s a 40% chance of rain on Saturday. Bowlers will be a major asset for Canada. In addition to Sana and Gordon, Dilon Heyliger is part of the pace assault. With its changes in spin, Captain Saad Bin Zafar and Nikhil Dutta are adept at keeping hitters quiet. USA has a strong top order with Steven Taylor, Monank Patel, and Andries Gous. The pace unit will be led by Saurabh Netravalkar and Ali Khan. Their primary spinner, Harmeet, is also capable of late-order striking.

Aaron Johnson, a Jamaican native, is a strong opening hitter who enjoys taking no-look strokes. In2022, the 33-year-old made his Canadian T20I debut. He has scored 713 runs at a 50.92 average and a 166.58 strike rate in 16 games played thus far. In the format, he has 48 sixes, two hundreds, and five fifties. In April, Corey Anderson made his USA T20I debut. He had initial scores of 28 and 55, but he also appeared a little out of practice. He has hit at 112.30 in the five T20Is he has played for the USA so far. He was the record holder for the quickest ODI hundred once. Is there a way for him to go back to those times?

It seems right, in a way, that the greatest World Cup in cricket history, with 20 teams, would begin with the longest rivalry in the sport’s history. The United States and Canada faced off in a three-day match in 1844, long before Australia and England engaged in the first-ever Test match in 1877. Canada won that game in New York by a score of 23 runs. The same two sides will play each other in the T20 World Cup 2024 opener in Dallas, one hundred and eighty years later. It so happens to be both teams’ inaugural T20 World Cup. Canada qualified by winning the Americas Qualifier, and the United States qualified as co-hosts.

It will be the first T20I at Grand Prairie Stadium on Saturday. However, Dallas is hardly buzzing, so it’s possible that the 7000 seats aren’t all filled. Furthermore, a rainstorm may cause havoc, as it did during both teams’ warm-ups at this very location. Still, on Saturday, USA will be the favorites. Even though they had only played seven Twenty20 Internationals (T20Is) since the 2022 T20 World Cup, all inside the previous two months, their resume was impressive. Playing at home, they defeated Bangladesh 2-1 after first defeating Canada 4-0.

Corey Anderson, an all-arounder for the USA and a previous member of New Zealand, will become the fifth player to represent two sides in the T20 World Cup if the rain holds off. Harmeet Singh, a former India Under-19 World Cup champion who was previously hailed as Bishan Bedi’s successor, is also anticipated to be a vital player with the bat and the ball. Canada has a left-arm seamer named Kaleem Sana, who was once able to remove Babar Azam in a first-class match in Pakistan. Jeremy Gordon, a 37-year-old bowler in associate cricket, is another member of their squad. Among other side stories, batting-all-rounder Nitish Kumar, who currently represents the USA, was with Canada until 2019 as did Canada coach Pubudu Dassanayake.
