PAK vs USA 2024 Highlights 6-6-2024

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

Dallas saw some rain in the week before the competition, but it has mostly cleared out since the World Cup started. That ought to stay the same on Thursday, when a whole game is anticipated. In the first two games played at this location, the wicket provided early seam movement with good bounce and carry, resulting in the two highest runs of the tournament thus far in the opening game.

Pakistan’s challenge of balancing the side stems from Imad’s inability to recover from a side strain that prevented him from playing in Pakistan’s last Twenty20 International against England last week. It probably indicates that Rizwan and Babar return to the top, and Shadab maintains his position due to his all-around ability. Following their victory against Canada, USA has no injury worries, and as the hosts will be using the same field once more, they are unlikely to alter a winning lineup.

As the merciless conclusion of the Twenty20 International against England last week shown, Azam Khan had nowhere to hide. He was singled out for criticism by Pakistan’s media and supporters following an astonishing performance with both bat and gloves. While some of it was warranted, the majority was excessive. However, it is clear that Pakistan is having difficulty coming up with a plan for dealing with him. He was chosen in part because to his recent CPL history, thus eliminating him gives them little alternatives when it comes to striking lower-order death-overs. Choosing a player with such little confidence, however, has its own challenges, not the least of which is whether to put him in goal when Mohammad Rizwan, a radically superior keeper, is certain to start.

Any bowling team facing Aaron Jones would be in trouble, but he matches up especially well against Pakistan. Haris Rauf, Pakistan’s most effective bowler at that era, is under a lot of strain after Jones destroys Canada’s pace and spin spinners in the middle overs. Jones may spearhead a middle-overs assault such to the one that saw the US easily defeat Canada in the tournament opener, especially with Imad out and Shadab badly injured.

The term “Pakistan the heavyweight, the USA the plucky underdog” may not seem very elegant when said aloud, but it is what people call these two teams when they play each other in Dallas. Aside from cricket-related issues, this match already has a sufficient amount of off-field spice. However, when you combine that with an American form boost and a weak Pakistani team, the cricket-related issues become even more intriguing.

The opening game’s USA victory against Canada clearly shows how dangerous the hosts are. The way the hosts handled themselves, converting a seemingly hopeless situation into a convincing triumph, is typical of a confident team coming off of a thrilling 2-1 series victory against Bangladesh in the lead-up to the event. Having played versus Canada at the same location, the USA has an additional advantage due to their greater familiarity with the setting.

Pakistan, on the other hand, has had difficulty scheduling a suitable practice session, much less a formal match, warm-up, or official match. Pakistan had to postpone two practise sessions to temporary indoor facilities due to persistent rain in Dallas over the last week. Rather than arriving early to allow for acclimatization, Pakistan chose to play T20I series in Ireland and the UK during the previous three weeks. They lost one of their three games against Ireland and were soundly defeated in the two games they played against England, thus they didn’t exactly look like a formidable team vying for a championship.

The news of Imad Wasim’s confirmed injury has made Pakistan’s problems worse. Wasim was added to the team because of his expertise in the US and the Caribbean. Furthermore, as the decisive match against England shown, their only realistic alternative seems to be the opening combination of Babar Azam and Mohammed Rizwan, which means that much of the experimenting during the previous five months of preparation has not paid off. There are weak spots across the order due to a number of players who are now having serious form issues. Saim Ayub, Azam Khan, and Shadab Khan are particularly troubled.

If leaping from success to misfortune without notice is a quintessential Pakistani quality, then belief and self-assurance are distinctly American. Not a better location, not a more hospitable story device for an upset, or at least a Texan thriller.
