USA beat Bangladesh in Houston

Wed 22 May 2024, 12:04:22
The United States have savoured a confidence-boosting five-wicket win over Bangladesh in a T20, just over a week out from co-hosting the tournament.

Batting all-rounder Corey Anderson, who played 13 Tests and more than 80 white-ball matches for New Zealand, clobbered an unbeaten 34 to help the US chase down Bangladesh’s 153-6 with three balls to spare in Prairie View, Texas on Tuesday.

Harmeet Singh, who played under-19 cricket for India, joined Anderson in a match-winning, 62-run partnership, finishing 33 not out after hammering three sixes.

The Bangladesh side was packed with international stars including former captain Shakib alHasan, Mahmudullah, Najmul Shanto, Mahedi

Hasan, Litton Das and Mustafizur Rahman.

It was only the US’s second win over a top-tier, ICC full member nation in T20s, coming two and a half years after their first against Ireland in 2021.

Ranked 19th in T20 cricket, the Monank Patel-captained US have little chance of advancing beyond the group stage at the 20-nation World Cup co-hosted with the West Indies.

However, the Bangladesh upset in the series opener against the South Asians raises hopes the Americans will not be embarrassed in front of home fans.

The US ease into the T20 World Cup against fellow cricketing minnows Canada in Dallas on June 1.
