United States vs Pakistan, Group A, T20 World Cup 2024 11th Match Preview

United States vs Pakistan

The 2009 defending champions Pakistan will begin their ICC T20 World Cup 2024 campaign against the co-hosts United States in the group A fixtures. Moreover, the Pakistan cricket team led by Babar Azam is quite unfamiliar with the pitch conditions in the USA, which remains a huge concern for the men-in-green. On the other hand, the United States led by Monank Patel, started their World Cup campaign with a dominating 7-wicket victory against Canada in the opening match of the tournament.

Probably both these teams might focus particularly on building a strong batting lineup and come up with their best playing XI combination to post huge totals.

This preview will highlight the facts about how the newly developed pitch conditions in Texas will pose considerable challenges for both teams. Also, fans doubt about the weather conditions due to severe runs at Dallas which delayed the commencement of the Nepal vs Netherlands match in Group D fixtures on 4th June.
