Pacer Chris Jordan, a man reborn on his home soil, ignited the flame with a hat-trick. ENG dismantled the USA batting line-up, restricting them to a meager 115 runs. The chase, if it could even be called that, was a mere exhibition of power hitting by England's captain, Jos Buttler. His innings ate the USA bowling attack with an unbeaten 83 off just 38 balls. Seven mighty sixes and six fours rained down, with five maximums coming in a single over, bruising the USA bowlers and smashing Solar Panels there.

National Anthems

National anthems done! USA and England take the field for a historic T20I first meeting! Don't blink!

Steven Taylor And Andries Gous Open For ENG

Topley fires the ball towards Andries Gous, a hint of swing in the air. But Gous is up to the challenge! He waits for the delivery to drift onto his pads, then unleashes a flick shot towards fine leg. The ball rockets high, suspense hangs in the air... and BOOM! What a start for USA! Big Six

USA 9/0

Andries Gous Out!!!

Absolutely brutal turn of events! Gous departs! Topley's delivery finds the edge of Gous' bat, and a sharp catch by Philip Salt behind the stumps sends the American opener packing for just 8 runs (including that massive six!). USA in early trouble at 9-1.

USA 11/1

Big Run-Out Chance Missed By Livingstone - Ends In A Four

Topley to Taylor, FOUR! A hint of length from Topley, but Taylor times it beautifully! He plays a controlled shot around off, finding the gap perfectly, and the ball races away to the boundary for a well-deserved four. After the early scare, Taylor is starting to settle in at the crease.

USA 26/1

Nitish Kumar Is Hitting Big

Topley to Nitish Kumar, SIX! Nitish Kumar is in top form. He makes room and thumps the length delivery over long-on for a massive 81-meter maximum, putting Topley under pressure. He has hit two sixes and one four so far. Following Kumar, Steven Taylor hit a FOUR to Sam Curran.

USA 43/1

Steven Taylor Falls

Sam Curran, fresh into his opening over, claims his first victim! A short, wide delivery outside off stump tempts Taylor. Moeen Ali, displaying reflexes, dives to his left and snatches a superb catch. The gamble of the slower ball pays off for Curran, dismissing Taylor for just 12 runs off 13 deliveries, including two boundaries. Aaron Jones, a right-handed batsman, strides out to the crease to replace Steven Taylor.

USA 56/2

Aaron Jones Departs!!!

Aaron Jones, who just arrived at the crease, departs for a mere 10 runs. Adil Rashid throws down a cunning googly that lands right on middle and leg. Jones swings wildly but misses completely, leaving his leg stump exposed. The crafty delivery finds its mark, sending Jones back to the pavilion with a whimper.

USA 65/3 in 10 Overs

Kumar Out!!! USA Wickets Falling Like Rain

Adil Rashid to Nitish Kumar, out Bowled! Knocked him over! Adil Rashid delivers a nicely tossed up googly that Nitish Kumar fails to read. Attempting to play without proper footwork, he misses completely, and the stumps are rattled. With their set batsman gone, USA is in trouble. As expected, it's proving to be a lackluster batting performance by USA. Nitish Kumar b Adil Rashid 30 (24) [4s-1 6s-2]. Milind Kumar, right handed bat, comes to the crease.

USA 77/4

USA Fans In Tug-of-War: Corey Roars With Six, Milind Falls

A rollercoaster of emotions for USA fans! Just as their spirits soared with a booming six from Corey Anderson off Livingstone's delivery, they come crashing down as Milind Kumar falls victim to the same bowler. Miscuing a pull shot, Kumar skies the ball which is gobbled up by a leaping Buttler behind the stumps. USA now precariously placed at the loss of their fifth wicket.

USA 91/5

Singh Sinks, USA Six Down

Harmeet Singh's valiant fight is cut short! After a powerful six that sailed over long-on, seemingly evading Alex Brook's fingertips, Sam Curran delivers a full toss. This time, Singh miscues, and Jordan at mid-off makes no mistake with the catch. USA, already reeling at the loss of five wickets, are in deeper trouble as Harmeet departs for a well-played 21. Shadley van Schalkwyk comes to the crease.

USA 115/6

Nine Wickets Down!!

Disaster strikes for USA! Just when they seemed to be clinging on for dear life, Jordan unleashes a fiery over that rips through the American batting order. Three wickets tumble in quick succession, with Ali Khan the latest to depart. A reckless shot across the line finds him plumb LBW, leaving USA in complete disarray. The fightback they were desperately hoping for has been well and truly extinguished.

USA 115 All Out

USA in big trouble! Jordan takes a hat-trick, first ever for England in T20Is, with Netravalkar bowled for a duck.

Shout-Out To Chris Jordan

Chris Jordan is the first England bowler to take a hat trick in T20 Internationals.

Philip Salt And Jos Buttler Open For ENG

The start of the English innings wasn't without its challenges. Netravalkar's first delivery to Salt was a testing back-of-length inswinger that shaped in slightly. While Salt managed to nudge it towards midwicket for a single, a misfield allowed him to retain the strike. This could prove crucial in the chase, especially if England manage to build a partnership early on.

ENG 2/0

England Captain Takes Charge Of The Chase

Buttler explodes! Back-to-back boundaries followed by a monstrous 104m SIX that roofs the stadium!

ENG 60/0

ENG Batters Make Fast Runs

Phil Salt unleashed another beast of a shot! Van Schalkwyk's full delivery on off-stump met Salt's bat with pure power. The ball rocketed towards long-off, and despite a valiant diving effort from the fielder, it sailed over the boundary for a well-deserved four. This clean hitting display from Salt is putting the pressure firmly on the USA bowlers.

ENG 104/0

Butter Hits 50

Four Sixes in a Row! Buttler is on fire.

ENG 113/0

England Win By 10 Wickets

England sealed its spot in the semifinals of the T20 World Cup 2024 with a 10-wicket drubbing of USA in the Super Eight in Barbados on Sunday.

Jos Buttler, England Captain Said

We give USA a lot of respect and we talked about if, if we brought our intensity, we would be too good. Once we got in a few overs, we tried to target this side with the wind. Adil was fantastic and Livi bowled brilliantly in tandem, it's difficult when you are not bowling in one game and then suddenly you bowl 4 overs, credit to him for being ready. We have great options, today we wanted to bring in CJ to bring depth to our batting and a World Cup hat-trick is a great effort. I have been feeling good all year to be honest. I feel I'm hitting the ball well and it's on me to look after my own game, as much as I'm the captain, I'm one of the 11 and I have got to do my job.

Aaron Jones, USA captain Stated

We did not have good last two games, something for us to talk about when we go back to USA but that's how it goes. Looking forward to playing more big teams. Wicket was a bit sticky, Rashid very experienced, very good bowler. Our shot selection was not good, we knew he was the dangerman. Something to look into and we definitely will come back harder. Buttler is very experienced and he batted beautifully today. It's very good for us, this is our first World Cup, lot of people did not think we will be here playing against England, West Indies and the big boys. Hopefully this will open the eyes of the American public. We've got a lot of calls and messages of support during this World Cup. I see us getting bigger and better from here.

Rashid Khan Named Player Of The Match

Good Night

England booked their place in the T20 World Cup semi-finals as the first team! Their dominant performance sends a warning shot to the remaining contenders. With three spots still up for grabs, the race to the final four heats up! Stay tuned for all the upcoming action, and don't miss a moment as we bring you the most exciting matches of the tournament.
