US vs IND: India Chose to Bowl First; Monank Patel Missed Out while India goes Unchanged

T20 World Cup 2024 US vs IND: Aaron Jones-led United States is scheduled to play in the 25th match of the T20 World Cup 2024 schedule on June 12 at Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. India won the toss and opted to bowl at New York.

The contest between the co-hosts United States and India has gained more expectations as both the US and men in blues have two victories each and the winner of this match will be the first team in Group A to qualify for Super 8s of the tournament.

After two victories against Ireland and Pakistan, India is eyeing for their third victory in the T20 World Cup campaign while the United States also has two victories in the campaign. Despite Monank Patel missing the game against India, the United States seems to face a big challenge in New York.

While speaking at the toss Rohit Sharma said, “We will bowl first. It has played better in the last two games, but you need to assess the conditions quickly and then let the game take over. It’s all about constantly getting better and keeping the momentum going. It’s important to do the right things. That was a great game to play, we didn’t have enough runs on the board, but the bowlers came to the party and won the game for us. We’re playing the same team.”

Meanwhile, Aaron Jones said, “We would have bowled first as well, there’s some help for the bowlers early. (On Monank Patel) He’s having a niggle and should be back quickly. It should be a good game and we’re looking to play well. The camp is very positive, just looking to play some good cricket. Shayan Jahangir replaces Monank and Shadley is in for Nosthush.”

US vs IND Pitch Report

Many more runs than scored so far on the drop-in pitches here in NY. If India were to bat first, a healthy total of over 160 is an eminent possibility with Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and other Indian batters looking for runs. The match will also be a test for the USA team as they will be up against a mighty opposition.
