USA vs Canada Match Prediction

USA vs CAN Match Prediction & Betting Tips, T20 World Cup 2024

USA and Canada get the 2024 T20 World Cup underway in Dallas on Saturday evening. This is the first time that either side have qualified for a T20 World Cup and they find themselves in Group A alongside India, Pakistan and Ireland. Read on as we preview this tournament opener which gets underway at the Grand Prairie Stadium at 19:30 local time on June 1st.

The USA side are looking forward to embracing the pressure of being hosts of this tournament and they showed that they will do far more than just making up the numbers when they beat Bangladesh 2-1 in late May. They will certainly fancy their chances of beating Canada in this first game of the competition.

It will require one of Canada’s best ever international cricket performances if they are to win this game on Saturday evening but this fixture will provide them with their best opportunity to win a match in the tournament. They were well beaten in their last T20I series against USA.

USA vs CAN Match Toss Prediction

Eight of 12 T20 matches at this venue have been won by the team batting first, therefore we predict that both skippers will want to bat first if they win the toss.

USA vs CAN Pitch Report

The average T20 score at the Grand Prairie Stadium has been over 165 across the last two years and we expect any total over 170 to be enough to win this opening game. The ball will turn and the pace bowlers should also get some assistance from the surface.

Dallas Weather Report

According to the forecast, it will be cloudy and humid throughout this game on Saturday evening in Dallas. There is a slight chance of rain but not enough to stop a full match being completed.
