Watch Now Free

PAK vs USA Reside Rating, Match 11: Not an excellent batting outing for Pakistan. However they did recuperate from opening blues with simply 30 runs coming within the powerplay. However from there, Shadab Khan (40 off 25) took cost with Babar Azam offering him with ready help with a sluggish 43-ball 44-run knock. Ultimately, Shaheen Afridi hit 23 off 16 as Pakistan posted 159/7. Nosthush Kenjige was glorious for the USA with 3/30 aside from Saurabh Netravalkar (2/18).

Pakistan 159/7

Shaheen Afridi has played an excellent knock of 16-ball 23 and that helps Pakistan post 159/7.

Pakistan lose Iftikhar

The chance of Pakistan reaching 170-180 is vanishing quickly. The big-hitter Iftikhar Ahmed departs for 18 off 14 as Saurabh Netravalkar bags his second wicket in a terrific spell.

Pakistan 140/7 in 18.1

Babar Azam departs

Pakistan lose a big wicket as Babar Azam departs for 44. He also wastes a review as the replay shows the ball was hitting the top of the middle stump.

Pakistan 125/6 in 15.5

Azam under pressure

This was Azam Khan’s 4th duck in 14 matches and also a consecutive one as he was dismissed for a duck against England in his last game.

Azam fails again

Azam Khan falls for a golden duck and also wastes a review in the process. He was plumbed but still took the review with a nod from Babar Azam. However, as was expected, it was a clean LBW. Pakistan lose 5 wickets for 98.

Pakistan: 98/5 after 13 overs.

Shadab Khan departs

USA have found the breakthrough from Kenjige. Shadab was looking to score quick runs and against Kenjige, he tried to loft it over the fine leg. But he mistimed and Netravalkar took a good catch to end a fine knock.

Pakistan: 98/4 after 12.4 overs.

Babar Azam breaks shackles

Babar Azam is finally breaking shackles after struggling in his first 24 deliveries. In the last five deliveries, he has hit two boundaries and a six to be on the move. 20 runs came from the 12th over.

Pakistan: 93/3 after 12 overs.

A six at last

6 overs later, Pakistan have finally got a six with Shadab Khan clearing the fence against Jasdeep Singh. He clears the fence again for another six. However, Pakistan need many more of those. Babar is struggling with 14 off 25 while Shadab Khan taking thee charge. Babar got his first boundary after 24 deliveries and that was also Pakistan’s first four.

Pakistan: 66/3 after 10 overs.

Pakistan batters struggle

No wickets since Fakhar Zaman but Pakistani batters are struggling on this pitch. Pakistan have hit two sixes but not a single boundary yet and that’s concerning.

Pakistan: 40/3 after 8 overs.

End of powerplay

Pakistan end powerplay with just 30 runs losing three wickets. Not a good start for Pakistan but Babar Azam is on the crease and he could play a long innings. But Pakistan have to cut down on the dot ball percentage. Pakistan have already conceded 22 dot balls out of 36 deliveries.

Pakistan: 30/3 after 6 overs.

USA all over Pakistan

Fakhar Azam is the third victim. He tries to lapse the ball over short third and is caught in the process.

Pakistan: 27/3 after 5 overs.

Slow start for PAK

It’s not going Pakistan’s way at the moment. They have scored just 22 runs in the first four overs and lost two wickets as well. The ball is moving around, and pacers are in control.

Pakistan: 22/2 after 4 overs.

Usman departs

Wow! Pakistan is two down in no time. After Rizwan, Usman Khan is the next victim. He falls to Nosthush Kenjige, trying to go a slog, but finds the fielder at long-off.

Pakistan: 14/2 after 2.3 overs.

Catch of the tournament!

What an incredible catch from Steven Taylor. A one handed stunner in the slips sends Mohammad Rizwan back as USA draws first blood.

Pakistan: 9/1 after 1.2 overs.

Rizwan starts well

Pakistan: 9/0 after 1 over.

Will Azam Khan keep?

Mohammad Rizwan has been slated as the wicketkeeper for Pakistan; does that mean Babar Azam doesn’t trust Azam Khan’s ability behind the stumps?

Playing XIs

Pakistan: Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan (wk), Usman Khan, Fakhar Zaman. Azam Khan, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Mohammad Amir, Haris Rauf.

USA: Steven Taylor, Monank Patel (c & wk), Andries Gous, Aaron Jones. Nitish Kumar, Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Jasdeep Singh, Nosthush Kenjige, Saurabh Netravalkar, Ali Khan.

One change for USA, Pakistan going in with four bowlers

Monank Patel thinks it’ll be easy to chase here, while Babar Azam reckons the pitch is ‘Test match’ like.


How will Pakistan manage without Imad Wasim?

With their best all-rounder out, Babar Azam has a tough chance to find his replacement. In all likelihood, they’ll bring in Abrar Ahmed as the second spinner, while Azam Khan will play as a pure batter. This would mean that Iftikhar Ahmed and Shadab Khan would have to bowl four overs combined.

USA’s probable XI

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