8:02 PM IST Time to hear from the captains...

8:02 PM IST Earlier in the game, after being sent into bat, Pakistan found themselves struggling at 26-3 within the first five overs. The USA bowlers maintained a tight grip on the game, making it difficult for Babar Azam and Shadab Khan to rotate the strike. Shadab Khan breathed some life into the Pakistan innings, while Babar chipped in with a couple of boundaries. Just as the partnership was starting to look promising, Pakistan lost Shadab Khan and Azam Khan off successive deliveries. This double blow was followed by the departures of Babar Azam and Iftikhar Ahmed, leaving Shaheen Afridi with the task of providing a finishing kick. Shaheen stepped up with a crucial 16-ball 23, helping Pakistan reach 159. For the USA, Nosthush Kenjige was the standout bowler, claiming 3 wickets for 30 runs in his 4 overs. Saurabh Netravalkar was the most economical bowler, contributing with 2 wickets.
8:01 PM IST Having finished with 159 on the board, which looked below-par at the halfway mark, Pakistan were in search of early wickets. Both Shaheen Afridi and Mohammad Amir struggled to get the radar right and failed to put the USA on the back foot early. Naseem Shah helped them draw the first blood but Pakistan could not really build on that scalp. Moreover, they could not squeeze in quiet overs which could have helped to push the required rate. Brought back into the attack, Rauf and Amir combined well to give Pakistan an opening with the wickets off the two set batters. The pacers exhibited impressive death bowling skills to take the game deep. Pakistan seemed to have the game in their grasp with the USA requiring 12 runs off the last 3 balls but let it slip courtesy of an ordinary couple of balls from Rauf. Handed the task of bowling the Super Over, Mohammad Amir missed his mark several times in the Super Over and they were equally poor in the field. With 19 runs to get, Iftikhar Ahmed got an early boundary away but his departure came as a big blow and Fakhar Zaman being stranded at the non-striker's end did not help their cause. It proved to be too much for Shadab Khan as Pakistan fell short by 5 runs.
7:57 PM IST The USA will feel that the game should not have gotten to the Super Over and it did not look like a possibility when Monank Patel and Andries Gous were stitching a steady stand, taking the USA ahead in the chase. In their pursuit of 160 runs, the USA got off to a sedate start as Monank Patel and Steven Taylor employed a cautious approach. Coming in at the departure of Taylor, Andries Gous got off the blocks quickly and it allowed Monank to settle into his innings. The duo went about their business sensibly and looked assured out in the middle. Through their 68-run stand, the USA had their noses in front at the halfway mark. The USA seemed to stumble a bit, losing Monank and Gous in quick succession but Aaron Jones and Nitish Kumar did not let the game slip away from their grasp. It all came down to 15 runs needed off the final over which turned to 12 runs off the last 3 balls but Jones' six off the 4th ball and a boundary from Kumar on the last ball took the game to a Super Over. Aaron Jones set the tone for the USA in the Super Over and they were also helped by Pakistan's sloppiness with the ball and in the field, allowing them to post 18 on the board. Saurabh Netravalkar came out with flying colours in the Super Over, where he stuck to his plans despite being taken to the ropes a couple of times, to close out the game for the USA.
7:50 PM IST THE USA HAVE DONE IT! Saurabh Netravalkar gets the job done as the USA pull off a famous upset in Dallas. We have our first upset of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup, 2024 and it is the tournament debutants, USA that have upstaged the runners-up of the previous edition, Pakistan. Hugs all around on the park and even in the stands as Monank Patel and his men celebrate a historic win. Pakistan are left shell shocked as their poor run in T20Is continues and having faltered at the final hurdle last time, their mission of going all the way this time has started on the wrong foot.
