Points Table

Match 1- USA vs Canada (Grand Prairie Stadium, Texas)

Current Form USA:

USA are currently placed at the 18th position on ICC Men's T20 Team Rankings with a rating of 165.

Both of the warm up matches that USA were supposed to play got cancelled due to rain. USA are in superb form currently. They have recently beaten Bangladesh in a 3 match T20I series by 2-1.

Players like Harmeet Singh, Corey Anderson, Steven Taylor and Saurabh Nethralvakar are performing to their potential. If they can carry on the good form, USA will have good chances to upset various opposition teams in the competition.

Players to look out for:

1. Saurabh Netravalkar
 - He is an experienced campaigner who will be vested with the responsibility of providing early breakthroughs for his team.

2. Steven Taylor - He is a powerful striker of the cricket ball and also a very useful spin bowler. Taylor will play an important role for USA in the upcoming matches.

In the warm up games, Canada beat Nepal by a huge margin of 63 runs. Nicholas Kirton played superbly and scored 51 runs. In the bowling department, Dilon Heyliger picked up 4 wickets.

In general, Canada are in a very ordinary form. They have recently lost a 5 match T20I series against USA by 4-0.

Players to look out for:

1. Nicholas Kirton
 - He is a flamboyant middle order batter who can change the course of the match with his clean hitting. Kirton is an important player for Canada in the World Cup and he is expected to bring out match winning performances for his team.

2. Saad Bin Zafar - Skipper Zafar has been the most consistent player for Canada in the last couple of years. He is a very capable spin bowler who doesn't leak runs and also picks up wickets when it matters the most.
