Winning the toss, the USA opted to bat first. However, they soon found themselves on the back foot as Arshdeep Singh unleashed a series of lethal deliveries. Utilizing the pitch conditions to perfection, he exhibited exceptional control and precision, making it challenging for the American batsmen to score runs freely. Arshdeep's spell included a variety of deliveries that kept the batsmen guessing, ranging from yorkers to well-disguised slower balls. His standout moment was when he picked up two wickets in consecutive balls, swinging the momentum firmly in India's favor.

Left-arm pacer Arshdeep Singh has etched his name into the record books by registering the best bowling figures by an Indian in the T20 World Cup. Arshdeep's extraordinary four-wicket haul came during the Group 'A' match against the USA at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium in New York on Wednesday. Arshdeep delivered a masterclass in T20 bowling, finishing with incredible figures of 4-0-9-4. His spell was instrumental in restricting the USA to a modest 110 for 8, giving India a significant upper hand in the crucial group stage encounter.

Arshdeep made history at the T20 World Cup, becoming the first Indian bowler to take a wicket with the first ball of an innings and the first to claim two wickets in the opening over of ICC’s flagship T20 event. In a stunning start, Arshdeep secured two early breakthroughs, including the first-ball wicket of Shayan Jahangir, setting a dominant tone for India. Maintaining high intensity, the Indian bowlers seamlessly mixed fuller deliveries with back-of-length balls.

Arshdeep, the left-arm pacer, excelled both at the beginning and the end of the innings, delivering an impressive 17 dot balls. The USA batters, buoyed by previous strong performances, struggled against the superior Indian pace attack. Despite being unbeaten and level on points with India, the United States could only muster 18/2 by the end of the powerplay, thanks to Arshdeep’s stellar performance. Aaron Jones, leading the team in the absence of injured captain Monank Patel, was on 10, while Steven Taylor was on 5.

The hosts rarely felt any relief as India kept the pressure on. However, with contributions from Nitish Kumar (27), Steven Taylor (24), and former New Zealand international Corey Anderson (15), the USA managed to add 68 runs in the final 10 overs, reaching a total of 110.
