USA vs Pakistan Match Prediction

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

USA will take on Pakistan in the 11th game of the T20 World Cup 2024. The game will be played at the Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas and will start at 8:00 PM IST on June 6

For the first time in T20 World Cup history, Pakistan cricket team is coming into the tournament with not many expectations. The team has not been in great form recently. They lost two games to New Zealand’s second string team at home and also lost to Ireland in one of the T20I games. They also suffered a 2-0 defeat to England in the series before the world cup. Also, the form of Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan – the two main batters of the side has not been great. The bowling looks good on paper; however, the players have looked off colour in recent series.

Meanwhile, USA come into the game after a stunning win over Canada. The team comfortably chased the target of 195, courtesy of Aaron Jones and Andries Gous. USA have a good team at disposal and very capable to pull off a big upset.

USA vs PAK Match Toss Prediction

Captains will be keen to chase. USA chased 195 in the first game played here so the teams would be happy if they get a chance to bat second. 

USA vs PAK Pitch Report

This pitch at the Grand Prairie could be tricky. Over 200 runs were scored in the game but we are not sure how the pitch will behave if the match is played on a different strip. So far, pitches have behaved differently in different matches and mostly they have been bowling friendly.

Dallas Weather Report

It will be a clear day with temperature around 24 degrees. The humidity will be 49 percent while wind speed will be 11 km/h.

USA Team News & Playing 11

USA Team News

USA won’t be making any changes to the playing XI which played against Canada in the first game of the tournament. The players did well and USA would feel if they can replicate the performance, they could upset Pakistan as well.

USA Key Players

  • Aaron Jones – Aaron Jones played a magnificent innings of 94 in 40 balls against Canada. He scored 10 sixes in the game. He joined Gayle in the list of most sixes in a T20 World Cup game. He also scored a fifty in just 22 balls which was the fastest fifty by a USA batter in T20Is
  • Andries Gous –  Andries Gous also had a great game against Canada and played a good innings of 65 runs. Gous has played against top players in franchise tournaments like MLC and ILT20 so he is very capable to perform against top bowlers.
  • Corey Anderson – Corey Anderson could be the game changer against Pakistan. He has played and performed against Pakistan previously as well. Also, his bowling could be handy on this wicket while he is also very capable to score big runs.
  • Saurabh Netravalkar – Saurabh Netravalkar is a quality bowler and has done well for USA consistently for years. The team would rest a lot of hopes on him against top teams like India and Pakistan.

USA Team Form

USA defeated Bangladesh before the World Cup. In the first game of the mega event, the team defeated Canada by seven wickets. 

USA Predicted Playing 11

Monank Patel (c & wk), Steven Taylor, Andries Gous, Aaron Jones, Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Nitish Kumar, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Ali Khan, Jasdeep Singh, Saurabh Netravalkar

Pakistan Team News & Playing 11

PAK Team News

Imad Wasim had been ruled out of the game against USA due to a side strain. Also, Babar will have to make a tough call about the selection of Azam Khan, who has not been in great form. Pakistan have four quality pacers but only three can play in the team. Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah and Haris Rauf are the likely starters.

PAK Key Players

  • Babar Azam – Babar Azam will hold the key for Pakistan. The conditions are not the best to bat and most of the expectations will rest on batters who have sound technique. Babar is one of the best batters in the format and recently became the first Pakistan batter to score over 4000 runs in T20Is. 
  • Fakhar Zaman – Fakhar Zaman will be a big game player for Pakistan in this World Cup. He is someone who can take the attack to the opposition. Fakhar has shown good form in the build-up to the World Cup and played a few good innings against Ireland and England.
  • Shadab Khan – Shadab Khan has been horribly out of form but he could be a big game player for Pakistan in this world cup. The bowlers will enjoy the conditions and spinners in the middle overs won’t be easy to face given the turn and grip that is on offer. Shadab could play a big role for Pakistan as his four overs could be decisive. Also, he can score handy runs down the order. 
  • Shaheen Afridi – Afridi is the lead pacer for Pakistan and would be looking for early strikes. The new ball has swung a lot and this is where Shaheen thrives. If the ball is moving, Shaheen could be unplayable at times.

PAK Team Form

Pakistan have not been in great form. The team last played against England and lost the series 2-0.

Pakistan Predicted Playing 11

Babar Azam (C), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Fakhar Zaman, Usman Khan, Azam Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf, Abrar Ahmed

USA vs Pakistan Betting Odds

Pakistan are favourites to win on betting sites. Fair enough as they are a far superior side and if they play well, they should pick an easy win.

Who will win USA vs Pakistan Match?

Pakistan are big favourites in the match. The Babar Azam-led side can be inconsistent; however, if the team plays to their potential, they would be very hard to beat for any side. USA are capable to pull off a win against Pakistan but the team will have to bat well. Given the quality attack Pakistan have, we don’t think USA will be able to score big runs which is why we are backing Pakistan to win.

🏆 USA vs Pakistan Prediction

Pakistan are clear favourites to win. The team has good batters and bowlers and if Pakistan can keep their calm and play to their potential, there should be no upset. The biggest issue for USA will be to score runs against the quality Pakistan attack and we feel that the batters might struggle to cope with the bowlers’ pace and swing on helpful wickets. We are thus siding with Pakistan as winners.
