The ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 co-hosts, United States of America, pulled off a historic victory against the 2009 T20 World Cup champions Pakistan on Thursday in a thrilling Super Over finish. With this win, the U.S.A. climbed the top spot in Group A with two wins in two matches followed by India at the second place with a win in their opener against Ireland.

To qualify for the Super 8, Pakistan need to buckle up as they are scheduled to play three more matches in the group stage including the high-voltage clash against India. On the other hand, the U.S.A are required at least one victory to increase their Super 8 qualification chances.

In this article, we will look at the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024 Super 8 qualification scenario for Team USA.

Super 8 Qualification Scenario for USA

After defeating Canada by 7 wickets while chasing a huge target of 195 runs with 14 balls remaining, Team USA announced their arrival in the T20 World Cup. Following their spectacular win in the opener, the co-hosts made headlines by defeating cricket giants Pakistan in a thrilling Super Over.

The U.S.A will next face India and Ireland in their remaining two T20 World Cup 2024 group stage fixtures on June 12 and 14 respectively. If the U.S.A. win both their remaining games, they will qualify for the next stage while the hosts need at least one more victory to consolidate their Super 8 qualification.

Considering a hypothetical situation where the U.S.A. beat Ireland and lose to India, and Pakistan win their remaining three games, then the qualification will depend on the net run rate. However, Pakistan losing one more game in group stage and U.S.A winning against Ireland can secure a Super 8 berth for the co-hosts.
