With over 50 runs needed off the final four overs, Harmeet Singh went after Bangladesh’s strike bowler Mustafizur Rahman to slam 17 runs off his 17th over. Harmeet once again owned Rahman with a 15 runs 19th over as the USA team chased down the 154 runs total with 3 balls to spare. 

Harmeet Singh’s 13 ball 33 runs knock proved to be heroic as the USA produced a massive upset just days before the T20 World Cup commencement.

Meanwhile, cricket fans were in utter disbelief at the perplexing results. While some social media users mocked Bangladesh for the humiliating defeat, a few congratulated the USA team for their resilience and grit against a full-member nation.

Indeed, the USA will be a team to watch out for in the upcoming T20 World Cup. They are being placed in Group A alongside India, Pakistan, Canada and Ireland.
