Will Aaron Jones’ USA crush England’s T20 World Cup semifinal dream?

All eyes are on the 49th game between USA and England as both teams, coming off crucial losses, are now locking horns in the Super 8 thriller of the T20 World Cup.

Jos Buttler and Co. will take to the Kensington Oval Ground on June 23 with just one goal, to clinch the game against the USA by a fairly decent margin. After losing to South Africa by 7 runs, England finds themselves in a tricky situation, but it is expected that they will come hard against the USA.

Although, as mentioned, there are eligibility criteria for the Three Lions, as they need to win by at least 10 runs or complete the game with an over to spare while chasing, which will enhance their run rate.

England vs USA pitch report

The Kensington Oval in Barbodas typically provides a sluggish surface, as seen in the match between India and Afghanistan. Although the ball comes onto the bat, it does not do so consistently, which creates a fair competition between the bat and bowl. A sluggish pitch allows medium pacers to use few tricks, especially cutters and slower balls. But considering the evening conditions, might give a slight edge to the batters.
