In their T20 World Cup fixture in New York, the USA’s promising form suffered a setback as they were defeated by India by seven wickets. Chasing a modest target of 111 runs, India reached 111/3 in 18.2 overs, guided by an unbeaten half-century from Suryakumar Yadav, who scored 50* off 49 balls. Shivam Dube also contributed with an unbeaten 31* off 35 deliveries, steering India to victory.

Earlier, USA had struggled to build momentum in their innings, posting 110/8 in their allotted 20 overs. Nitish Kumar was the top scorer with 27 runs off 23 balls, but the team faced a batting collapse. Arshdeep Singh and Hardik Pandya led India’s bowling attack superbly, with Arshdeep claiming 4 wickets for just 9 runs and Hardik taking 2 wickets for 14 runs.

The match not only highlighted India’s dominance but also sparked off discussions on social media platform X (formerly Twitter), notably involving Jaskaran Malhotra and Ali Khan. Jaskaran, known for his explosive batting, had previously represented the USA until 2022 and is remembered for achievements such as hitting six sixes in an over in 2021 against Papua New Guinea’s Gaudi Toka, a rare feat in ODI cricket. He was also the first player from the USA to score a century in ODIs, finishing with an impressive 173* off 124 balls.

In a deleted post, Jaskaran shared a meme from another account, which poked fun at Jahangir. The post stated an earlier quote from Jahangir, where he stated, “Last year in the World Cup qualifiers, I told the ICC people that one of my dreams is to play against Virat Kohli and show him who’s king.”

The post further added, “And this happened when he played against Virat and team,” with a photo of Jahangir departing after his golden duck on Wednesday.

Khan replied, “Never expected this from my ex-team mate. Hate towards another player! Very unprofessional of you @JaskaranUSA.”

Jaskaran wrote, “Just to let you know. Go see my post. How am I supporting you and my team. Please go and check brother.”

On the other hand, Ali Khan, currently playing for the USA in the T20 World Cup, continues to be a key figure in their squad. His presence in the ongoing tournament and the contrasting fortunes of the USA and India in their recent encounter likely fueled the online debate among cricket enthusiasts and supporters of both teams.

The result against India served as a reality check for the USA team, highlighting areas for improvement as they continue to strive for success in international cricket, especially in major tournaments like the T20 World Cup.
