The Historic Upset of the CenturyT20 World Cup 2024

In the world of cricket history, there are moments that define the sport. Moments that make us believe in the impossible. Moments that remind us why we love this game. One such moment unfolded on June 6, 2024, when the United States of America (USA) cricket team, a relatively new entrant to the world of international cricket, defeated Pakistan, a full-time member nation and a seasoned player in the arena, in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup.

The Unforgettable Match

The match, held at the Grand Prairie Cricket Stadium in Dallas, was nothing short of a rollercoaster ride. Pakistan, batting first, put up a competitive total of 159 runs for the loss of 7 wickets. The USA team, led by Monank Patel, responded with an equal score of 159 for 3, leading the match into a Super Over.


In the Super Over, the USA team managed to score 18 runs. Pakistan, in response, could only manage 13 runs. The USA team emerged victorious in the Super Over by 5 runs, marking a significant milestone in their cricket journey.

The Upset of the Century

This victory is being hailed as one of the biggest upsets in cricket World Cup history. The USA, a co-host of the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 and an automatic qualifier, was not considered a strong contender against the cricketing giant, Pakistan. However, the USA team showed remarkable skill and determination, proving that in the world of sports, it’s not just about the history but the performance on the field that counts.

The Heroes of the Day

The USA team’s performance was a collective effort, with each player contributing to the victory. Monank Patel, the Player of the Match, played a crucial knock of 50 runs off 38 balls. He was well-supported by Aaron Jones and Alex Gous, who scored 36* and 35 runs respectively. The bowlers, led by Nosthush Kenjige and Saurabh Netravalkar, also played a key role in restricting the Pakistani batsmen.

A New Chapter in Cricket History

This victory has opened a new chapter in cricket history. It has shown that cricket is a truly global sport, with teams from non-traditional cricketing nations capable of taking on and defeating established teams. It has also highlighted the growth and potential of cricket in the USA.


The USA’s victory over Pakistan in the T20 World Cup 2024 is a testament to the unpredictability and excitement of the sport. It’s a reminder that in cricket, as in life, anything is possible.
