Speaking of the match, it was an absolute embarrassment for Pakistan as the newcomers, the USA, pulled off one of the most massive upsets to date. The Men in Green were defeated by the co-hosts in the Super Over after the scores were levelled. Pakistan scored 159/7, and the USA pulled off the same score, taking the match into a super over. PAK leaked out too many runs, courtesy of Mohammed Amir’s shambolic bowling as he gave out 18 runs. PAK scored just 13, and as a result, the United States went to the top of Group A with two wins in a row before facing India. The United States trounced Canada by seven wickets in their opener.
