T20 World Cup 2024: West Indies Beat USA By 9 Wickets In The Super 8

In this article, we mention the T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 match between the West Indies and the USA. In this match, West Indies beat USA by 9 wickets.

The West Indies bounced back from their opening Super 8s defeat with a dominant nine-wicket victory over the USA at Kensington Oval, Barbados. Chasing a modest 128-run target, the Windies openers Shai Hope and Johnson Charles provided a solid foundation before Hope took centre stage with a dazzling unbeaten knock.

USA Batter’s Fail

Opting to bat first after losing the toss, the USA innings lacked momentum. Opener Andreas Gaus top-scored with a gritty 29 runs, but wickets fell at regular intervals, restricting the American total. Contributions from Nitish Kumar’s 20 runs, Milind Kumar’s 19 runs and Ali Khan’s 14 runs helped provide some support, but the Windies bowling attack proved too strong.
