Defending champions England (ENG) square off against co-hosts United States of America (USA) in the 49th match of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval in Barbados, on Sunday, June 23

Jos Buttler & Co began their Super Eight campaign on a high note as they thrashed West Indies in their backyard while chasing a target of 181 runs. But the former champions could not replicate the same performance against Aiden Markram’s South Africa as they suffered a seven-run defeat. After being asked to bat first the Proteas posted a total of 163/6. In reply, the Three Lions were on the right track to chase down the total but lost s few wickets in the middle and eventually lost the game. 

Meanwhile, the debutants, following an outstanding performance in the group stage, the debutants have been unable to regain their winning ways since the start of the Super Eight round. In their first match against South Africa, Aaron Jones & Co. failed to chase down the score and lost by 18 runs. In their previous game against the West Indies, the team was bundled out for a mere 128, which the former champions easily chased down with nine wickets to spare.
