The Pakistan cricket team is all set to begin their T20 World Cup campaign against the USA on June 6. The Men in Green haven’t played even one warm-up game and are coming off a series defeat at the hands of England. Meanwhile, Monank Patel’s home side is coming off an emphatic win over Canada and won’t be an easy nut to crack.

Pakistan vs USA Head-to-Head

This will be their first encounter on a cricket field.

Pakistan vs USA Team News

The Men in Green suffered a major blow before the game, with their star all-rounder Imad Wasim out of the match. For the USA, fitness issues or injuries won’t be a concern.

PAK vs USA Pitch Report

We can expect a batter’s graveyard at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. So far, two matches have been played on the ground, and just 350 runs have been scored in four innings. No team has even crossed the 100-run mark. Pacers in general will thrive here, but spinners have troubled the batters as well.

PAK vs USA Weather Report

On June 6, there is a basically no chance chance of rain from 10 AM to 4 PM (match starts at 10:30 AM) in Dallas, and humidity will hover between 39 and 65%. The good thing is that since the game will be played in the morning and afternoon, dew will not play a factor.

PAK vs USA Predicted XI

Pakistan Predicted XI

Babar Azam (c), Mohammad Rizwan, Usman Khan, Fakhar Zaman, Iftikhar Ahmed, Shadab Khan, Azam Khan (wk), Haris Rauf, Shaheen Afridi, Naseem Shah, Abrar Ahmed.

In spite of his no-show in T20Is, Azam Khan will start. Abrar Ahmed is also likely to get in as a replacement for Imad Wasim. Saim Ayub will likely miss out, and Mohammad Rizwan will open alongside Babar Azam.

USA Predicted XI

Steven Taylor, Monank Patel (c & wk) Andries Gous, Aaron Jones, Corey Anderson, Harmeet Singh, Nitish Kumar, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Jasdeep Singh, Ali Khan, Saurabh Netravalkar.

The home side will field the same team, with Steven Taylor and Corey Anderson playing a huge role as two primary all-rounders, while Aaron Jones is expected to show his might once again.
