Suryakumar and Bumrah help India start Super 8s on a positive note

Suryakumar Yadav’s inventive batting and Jasprit Bumrah’s consistency with the ball helped India begin their Super 8s campaign with a polished 47-run win over Afghanistan at Kensington Oval in Bridgetown, Barbados. When India decided to play, they lost early wickets, but Suryakumar spearheaded the team’s recovery with a 28-ball 53 and a 60-run fifth wicket stand off only 37 balls with Hardik Pandya. Afghanistan’s total of 182 was out of reach as they were bowled out for 134, with Bumrah’s 3 for 7 off four overs supplemented by the remaining bowlers.

Shubman Gill, who is currently with the Indian team as a traveling reserve, will return home after the US leg of the Indian team’s upcoming Twenty20 World Cup matches.

Nassau County stadium to be removed in six weeks

What will happen to the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium and its tough pitches? The solution is straightforward. The Pop-Up Stadium, built in just 106 days, will take almost six weeks to remove. That work actually began on Wednesday, just after the India-USA game ended in the afternoon.

Eisenhower Park, which contained the stadium and was made into a safe fortress for the games and spectators, will be restored to its former condition, with free public access to its muddy, grassy, and dusty surfaces. The entrances, which were tightly watched and restricted for the previous two weeks, will be free going forward.

Ruthless Australia wallop Namibia to secure Super 8 berth

Australia were clinical and ruthless in their first-ever T20I match against Namibia at the Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. Adam Zampa went 4 for 12 as Namibia folded for a dismal 72. The 2021 winners then chased down the score in 5.4 overs to advance to the Super 8s. The defeat meant Namibia was out.

Lamichhane to join the Nepal squad for the Caribbean phase of the T20 World Cup

Sandeep Lamichhane will join Nepal’s World Cup squad for the Caribbean stage of their campaign after missing the first two matches in the United States. The former Nepal captain was sentenced to eight years in prison for rape before his conviction was overturned on appeal during the World Cup.

McMullen and Munsey help Scotland knock Oman out

Brandon McMullen’s unbeaten 61 sent Scotland to the top of the Group B standings with a seven-wicket hammering of Oman, who were the first team officially eliminated from the T20 World Cup 2024. While Pratik Athavale’s solid half-century knock, aided by a 41* from Ayaan Khan in the second half, helped Oman to a competitive 150/7 on a slow Antigua track, Scotland’s top-order came out firing to make quick work of the chase, winning with 6.5 overs to spare after opener George Munsey’s rollicking cameo to set them up.

Damage control: ICC top-dresses NY pitches to reduce excessive grass veins

The International Cricket Council (ICC) is addressing significant criticism and concern over the drop-in pitches in New York for the ongoing T20 World Cup. While the ICC has stated that it will address the matter, officials privately dispute the concept that certain pitches are unsafe. It is, however, planning certain measures to ensure that the surface for the highly anticipated India-Pakistan match at Nassau County Ground on June 9 is even and fair, as well as for the remaining six games in New York.

Theekshana criticises Sri Lanka’s rigorous World Cup schedule

Sri Lanka spinner Maheesh Theekshana has criticized his team’s grueling World Cup schedule, calling it ‘unfair’. Sri Lanka is one of only two teams (the other being the Netherlands) that will play their four group-stage matches over four separate stadiums. It doesn’t end there: Sri Lanka’s hotel in New York, where they began their campaign against South Africa on June 3, was an hour and 40 minutes distant from the site. The Asian side has also had to contend with airline delays and long wait times at airports
