New Delhi. The Pakistan cricket team will play its first match against the USA in the T20 World Cup 2024 on Thursday. Both the teams will face each other in T20 cricket for the first time. Host USA made a great start by defeating Canada in their first match, while Pakistan will try to start the tournament with a win. The current runner-up Pakistan team is a strong contender for victory on paper, but given the recent form, the team’s path is not going to be easy. Babar Azam and company will have to avoid complacency in the first match. This match will be played at 9:00 pm Indian time.

Pakistan recently lost the T20 International match against Ireland while it suffered a 0-2 defeat against England. Due to which its preparations for the T20 World Cup were not very good. Earlier, the team tied the series 2-2 with New Zealand at home while many players included in the World Cup team did not play in the visiting team.

Babar- Rizwan’s strike rate is a matter of concern
Babar and Mohammad Rizwan are Pakistan’s most consistent performers in the T20 format. But the strike rate of both of them is a matter of concern and both have failed to score runs quickly. However, the Pakistan team has the ability to beat anyone on their day. The team is heavily dependent on the fast bowling quartet of Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Haris Rauf and Mohammad Aamir, who has returned from retirement. The US team is full of confidence after a seven-wicket win in the first match of the tournament against Canada.

Pakistan got a shock
Pakistan has suffered a major setback before the match against America. The team’s all-rounder Imad Wasim has been ruled out of this match due to injury. PCB confirmed this on Wednesday. Pakistan’s preparations will also be affected due to Imad not playing because its next match is against India. Before the match against India, Pakistan has a chance to come back in form by performing well against America.
