The 11th match of the T20 World Cup will be played between America and Pakistan. With this match, Pakistan will start its campaign in this T20 World Cup. America defeated Canada by 7 wickets in the first match of this World Cup.

Pakistan has performed well in the last 2 T20 World Cups. Pakistan reached the semi-finals in the 2021 World Cup. Pakistan also played the final in the 2022 T20 World Cup. It was defeated by England in the final.

The match between USA and Pakistan will be played at Grand Prairie Stadium, Dallas. This is the same ground where America played its first match. America and Canada together scored 391 runs in this ground.

On the other hand, America is fully prepared for this match. If we look at the recent matches, apart from defeating Canada in the World Cup, America surprised everyone by defeating Bangladesh 2-1 in the series played against Bangladesh before the World Cup.

The biggest headache for Pakistan is their batting. In the recent series played against England, they had to face a 2-0 defeat. The poor performance of the batsmen in this series was the reason for the defeat. Now it remains to be seen whether America will be able to cause the first upset of this World Cup by defeating Pakistan.
