USA shocks Pakistan in T20 Cricket World Cup with thrilling super over victory

In a stunning upset in cricket history, the USA has emerged victorious over Pakistan in the T20 Cricket World Cup held in Dallas, Texas. Despite being co-hosts and new to the T20 World Cup, the USA secured their second win in the competition that features a shorter format of the game where each side has one inning of up to 20 overs.

The game between the USA and Pakistan ended in a tie after 20 overs, requiring a super over to determine the winner. With this impressive performance, the U.S. now has a strong chance of advancing to the Super 8 round, following a round-robin stage before the semi-finals.

Pakistan initially struggled in their innings but recovered with a partnership of 72 runs between Babar Azam and Shadab Khan, posting a competitive total of 159-7. The USA, ranked 18th in the world, responded strongly with Monank Patel scoring 50 runs and Andries Gous contributing 35. Aaron Jones, who scored 94 runs in the previous victory against Canada, added 36 runs before the match went to a super over.
