Is It Game Over For Pakistan? What Happened to Babar Azam Led Pakistan

Why Pakistan Lost to USA in T20 WC 2024?

Reasons Behind Pakistan Defeat against USA in T20 WC

Why Pakistan Lost to USA in T20 WC 2024: The world of cricket was in absolute shock on 6th June when one of the T20 World Cup host nations United States of America scripted history after defeating Asian giants Pakistan in a thrilling group stage fixture of the T20 WC. This was Pakistan’s first game in the T20 World Cup and oh boy they crumbled on the biggest stage they could ever imagine.

It was not a single factor that caused Pakistan’s defeat today but it was a complete slip-up from the Karachi boys and the hosts used it to their perfection and registered their second win of the tournament. In a game where Pakistan could have easily won they spoiled it with bat first and then with bowl.

Even the skipper himself stated that having world-class bowlers he felt like 160 was a defendable target. However, they did manage to come back and tie the game but in the super over their crisis continued as they gave away 18 runs and picked up 1 wicket in the super over. In reply, the Pakistan team was only able to score 13 runs in six balls.

Top Three Reasons for Pakistan Loss against USA

Lack of Aggressive Batting;

The Pakistan team was sent out to bat first after the USA won the toss. Expect Babar Azam, Shadab Khan, and surprisingly Shaheen Afridi no one batted for Pakistan in this opening fixture of the World Cup. A total of six players were sent back to the pavilion for less than 20 runs.

Even though Pakistan’s key player scored 44 he played that knock in 43 balls which technically did not help, it is also understandable that Babar tried his best but if he had support from others then the story could have been different.

Giving Away Extra Runs;

The bowlers also gave away a lot of freebies when compared to USA bowlers. The pitch was decent and it had a lot of favor towards bowlers, but with a world-class bowler the Pakistan team faced an off day. A total of 11 wide’s were bowled by Pakistan when compared to USA’s 4 wide’s.

In the Feilding part also they lacked where if few runs had been saved then this low-scoring contest would have been much different for Pakistan.

Over-Reliance on Key Players;

The Pakistan team has always had a few key players who always have the limelight and in the first match against the USA, this issue once again raised up. Players like Babar Azam, Md Rizwan, Shaheen Afridi, and Haris Rauf have always been under pressure for their performance while other players have failed to stand up when the star players are having a bad day.

If Pakistan wants to win games then they will have to get individual performances out and together as a team they will have to fight to have a chance in proceeding to the next stages of the tournament.

Lack of Wickets from Spinners;

Except for Shadab Khan Pakistan did not have a real spinner who could contribute with few wickets. The USA spinners took three wickets when compared to Pakistan’s zero wickets from spinners. Even though Shadab played a good knock with the bat, he was unable to do the job with the ball. This was also one of the key issues for Pakistan in this defeat to the USA.

Conclusion Why Pakistan Lost to USA in T20 WC 2024: Can Pakistan Bounce Back into Life

These were the big mistakes and the reasons that led to the loss of Pakistan to the USA in the thrilling super over match. However, with India the next opponent for Pakistan they will have to understand these key issues and try to resolve them, if they continue the same against India then as we all know their chances of moving into the next stages are really difficult.
