The USA players have surprised the cricket fraternity with their impressive skills and desire to compete on the big stage. They chased down a 195-run target against Canada in their first match in T20 World Cup history, marking the highest successful run-chase in this year's competition. Following this fantastic result, Monank Patel's men pulled off the upset of the tournament so far by defeating Pakistan in the Super Over. The USA can reach the Super Eight stage if they win at least one of their two remaining matches against India and Ireland.

India, on the other hand, are comfortably sitting atop Group A after winning their first two games against Ireland and Pakistan. While the Ireland game saw the inaugural champions winning comprehensively by eight wickets, chasing a paltry target of 97 runs, they had to toil hard in their second encounter against arch-rivals Pakistan. The Men in Blue defended a 120-run target commendably and won by six runs.

Nassau Cricket Stadium, New York Pitch Report: The stadium has seen some fantastic crowds, but the pitches have not matched up. While there have been some intense low-scoring encounters, there have also been a few lacklustre matches. Batting has been very difficult as the pitches have provided variable bounce and balls have stopped on the batters. It is important for the batters to apply themselves at the crease. Meanwhile, bowlers can consider the surface as their biggest ally and use it to good effect. Bowlers who are not comfortable bowling yorkers can refrain from going for it as there is enough in the pitch to cause problems for the batters.

Head-to-Head Record: The two sides have never played against each other, and their clash on June 12 will be their first-ever meeting on the international scene.

Probable Playing XIs:

  • United States of America:

  • Steven Taylor

  • Monank Patel (C/WK)

  • Andries Gous

  • Aaron Jones

  • Corey Anderson

  • Harmeet Singh

  • Nitish Kumar

  • Shivam Dube

  • Hardik Pandya

  • Ravindra Jadeja

  • Axar Patel

  • Arshdeep Singh

  • Jasprit Bumrah

  • Mohammed Siraj

Probable Best Performers:

  • Probable Best Batter of the Match: Rishabh Pant

  • Rishabh Pant has been in scintillating form since his much-awaited comeback to professional cricket earlier this year. He is India's leading run-getter after two matches. In the first game, he scored an unbeaten 26-ball 36 against Ireland before following it up with a 31-ball 42 versus Pakistan. At No. 3, Pant's role is crucial for the Men in Blue.

  • Probable Best Bowler of the Match: Jasprit Bumrah

  • Jasprit Bumrah has been one of the best bowlers in the early stages of the tournament. In two games, he has bagged four wickets at an average of four and a strike rate of 8.40. His economy rate is a mind-boggling 2.86. It will be intriguing to see how the USA batters counter Bumrah's threat.

Prediction: India, with their experience and form, are strong favorites to win this match against the USA. While the USA has shown remarkable resilience and potential, the depth and strength of the Indian team are likely to lead them to victory.
