The West Indies will lock horns with the USA at the Kensington Oval in Barbados on June 22, 2024, at 6 am IST.

This is an encounter that the tournament did not anticipate, yet one that it rightfully merits. The co-hosts of this year’s T20 World Cup navigated their way through the group-stages, each employing distinctive methods that varied in their degree of surprise. 

The West Indies asserted their dominance in the league phase, securing convincing victories in all four matches. In contrast, the USA, despite commencing the tournament with a couple of wins, relied on adverse weather conditions in Florida to narrowly advance past Pakistan. Pakistan, despite winning their last couple of league games, fell short of qualification.

However, both teams encountered setbacks in their initial Super Eight matches in distinctive manners, underscoring the significance and pivotal nature of their upcoming clash. The team that suffers defeat in this contest will witness a substantial decline in their chances of advancing, thus rendering this match a critical must-win scenario for both sides.
