T20 WC 2024, IND vs USA: India defeated the United States by seven wickets at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Wednesday. The win assured India's Super Eight spot as the team currently has 6 points with one game remaining in Group A. 

Captain Rohit Sharma stated that it was a "big relief" for him after India advanced to the Super 8 round of the 2024 T20 World Cup.


India earned a hard-fought victory after the seasoned duo of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were dismissed quickly in the opening three overs. Shivam Dube and Suryakumar Yadav kept their cool to help India maintain their perfect record in the match. The pair put together a 72-run stand to win the match.

"It is a huge relief; playing cricket here was not easy. We had to stick to the end of all three games. I'll take a lot of confidence from these wins," Rohit stated in the post-match presentation.

A goal of 111 appeared to be a small chase for a team like India, which can chase down even the most colossal totals against the world's top bowling lineups.

A goal of 111 seemed to be a small chase for a team like India, which is capable of chasing down even the most colossal totals against the world's finest bowling lineups. Arshdeep finished with an astonishing 4-9, while Hardik Pandya took two wickets and lost 14 runs.

However, the USA pacers tested India's depth with their disciplined line and length. It took Dube and Suryakumar to step away from their natural game and assist India in successfully chasing down the highest total in New York.

What does India's win mean for Pakistan's chances?

India's victory means that Pakistan's chances of progressing to the next stage are now entirely dependent on the United States against Ireland match on June 14. If the United States loses that game, Pakistan will have a strong chance of defeating Ireland and advancing to the Super Eight with four points. However, if the USA wins the game, they will advance to the following round with 6 points, whereas Pakistan will be eliminated from the competition because they can only get four points.
