West Indies won the toss and invited the USA to bat first in the Super 8 round of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 at the Kensington Oval stadium in Barbados.

Both teams lost in their respective opening Super 8 match which makes this a virtual do-or-die contest.

“We are going to bowl first. Looks a pretty good wicket, inclement weather as well. We’ll look to bowl well and take instructions from there. Our destination in our hands. Today provides us an opportunity to get back to winning ways. We have been batting well as a team. We were lacking a bit of intensity in the middle overs in the previous game. Romario misses out, in comes McCoy. King has been ruled out and in comes Shai Hope,” Windies skipper Rovman Powell said at the toss.

Teams:

United States (Playing XI): Steven Taylor, Andries Gous(w), Nitish Kumar, Aaron Jones(c), Corey Anderson, Milind Kumar, Harmeet Singh, Shadley van Schalkwyk, Nosthush Kenjige, Ali Khan, Saurabh Netravalkar

West Indies (Playing XI): Johnson Charles, Shai Hope, Nicholas Pooran(w), Roston Chase, Rovman Powell(c), Sherfane Rutherford, Andre Russell, Akeal Hosein, Alzarri Joseph, Gudakesh Motie, Obed McCoy
