America, which is hosting the T20 World Cup for the first time and playing the World Cup for the first time, has created history. America defeated the 2009 champion Pakistan in the Super Over.

The match was interesting and the winner of the match was not decided till the last over. The decision was made in the super over. This was the second super over match of this World Cup. Earlier, Namibia had defeated Oman in the super over.

Before this whole story, know that America is being captained by Gujarat-born Monak Patel, who has played for Gujarat’s Under-19 team in India.

The team has Saurabh Netravalkar, who has played for India in the Under-19 World Cup in 2010. Harmeet Singh has played in the Under-19 World Cup in 2010 and 2012. Jasdeep was among the probables for the 2011 Under-19 World Cup.

All four of them have contributed to the American team that made history. Especially Monank and Netrawalkar.
