Pakistan were off to a disastrous start as the United States of America (USA) Thursday beat Pakistan in Super Over in the Group A match of the T20 World Cup in Dallas. 

The USA gave Pakistan 19 runs target in the super over while Pakistan could make only 13 for the loss of one wicket.

Pakistan scored 159 runs in their opening game of the T20 World Cup in Dallas against the United States. In reply, the USA also scored 159 runs in 20 overs losing just three wickets in the process.

Nosthush Kenjige was the pick of the bowlers for the US side whereas Skipper Babar Azam was the top scorer for Pakistan with 44 runs.

Babar Azam and Shadab Khan took the attack to the USA after the Green Team lost three early wickets in the powerplay. The pair sent Harmeet Singh for a 19-run over before the leggie was dismissed by Kenjige who subsequently got the better of Azam Khan on the next ball.

Runs dried up for the Green Team after they ended the powerplay with a run rate of exactly five. The loss of wickets resulted in attacking shots from skipper Babar however, to no avail. Shadab and Babar held the fort until the ninth over before Shadab began to attack the American bowler to try and reverse some of the pressure. Two sixes in the first two balls and a boundary off the last from the 10th over helped Pakistan cross the 60-run mark.

Babar departed in the 16th over after he was trapped in front for a leg-before-wicket by Jasdeep Singh with Iftikhar Ahmed following his captain two overs later. Mohammad Rizwan was dismissed by Saurabh Netravalkar in the first over after Steven Taylor caught a blinder in slips.

Usman Khan was the next to depart after Nosthush Kenjige tossed the ball up who skied it to long off and was caught by Nitish Kumar. Fakhar Zaman followed next after he scooped a mistimed shot to short third man.
