Babar Azam’s Pakistan Stunned as USA’s Netravalkar, Jones Pull Off Unbelievable Super Over Win in T20 World Cup

Dallas – In a dramatic turn of events, the USA pulled off a sensational victory against Pakistan in a Super Over thriller during the T20 World Cup group stage on Thursday. The match, held in Dallas, saw the United States level Pakistan’s 159-run score before clinching the win in a nerve-wracking Super Over.

After the USA matched Pakistan’s total, Mohammad Amir’s erratic bowling in the Super Over, including three wides, allowed the US to post a formidable 18/1. In response, Pakistan could only manage 13 runs, losing a wicket in the process.

Amir had earlier bowled a tight 19th over in USA’s chase, conceding just six runs, but couldn’t maintain his composure in the Super Over. His wayward deliveries and wide balls helped the US capitalize, with Harmeet Singh and the US batters running well to maximize their score.

In Pakistan’s reply, Saurabh Netravalkar, an Oracle techie turned cricketer, delivered an outstanding performance. He bowled accurately outside the off-stump, frustrating Iftikhar Ahmed and eventually securing his wicket. Milind Kumar’s diving catch at long-off was a crucial moment, leaving Pakistan needing 13 runs off the last three balls.

Despite Shadab Khan’s efforts, including a four off a deflected yorker, Pakistan fell short, sealing a phenomenal win for the USA. This victory marks a historic moment for the tournament newcomers.
