England Crush USA

England put on a dominant display to thrash the United States by 10 wickets and secure their place in the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup Super 8s.

Chasing a modest target of 116 set by the U.S., the English openers Jos Buttler and Phil Salt made short work of the chase. Buttler, in a brutal display of power hitting, smashed an unbeaten 83 off just 38 balls, peppering the Kensington Oval with 6 fours and 7 towering sixes. Salt provided able support with a fluent 25 off 21 deliveries. The pair reached the target in a mere 9.4 overs, showcasing England’s absolute dominance.

Earlier, opting to bat first after losing the toss, the U.S. batsmen struggled against a disciplined bowling attack from England. Nitish Kumar top-scored for the Americans with a fighting 30 (24 balls, 1 four, 2 sixes), while Corey Anderson chipped in with a handy 29 (28 balls). Harmeet Singh (21), Steven Taylor (12), and captain Aaron Jones (10) were the only other batsmen to reach double figures.

Chris Jordan was the wrecker-in-chief for England, claiming a stunning hat-trick on his way to a spectacular haul of 4 wickets for just 10 runs in his 2.5 overs. Sam Curran and Adil Rashid provided excellent support, taking 2 wickets each. The U.S. capitulated dramatically, losing their last five wickets for no runs in a span of just 6 balls, highlighting England’s bowling prowess.

With this emphatic victory, England have booked their spot in the T20 World Cup semi-finals. The U.S., on the other hand, have been knocked out of the tournament.
