Jones made it clear that despite having a slow over rate and a few hiccups, he was proud of team USA’s bowling unit, who made it possible to hold team India from winning until 18.2 overs. 

However, he also accepted that his team could’ve been better at batting and scored 10-15 runs more to have a better shot at winning the match.

“10-15 runs short. If we got 130 then it would have been a tough total, that’s how it goes sometimes. The boys were very disciplined, really proud of the bowling unit. Feels good, this is what we wanted for USA cricket, enjoying it.” Aaron Jones said

“We will recalibrate now, have a few meetings and come back strong. The wicket was a bit tricky, more suited for seam bowling. That’s why no spin. Mostly he (Monank Patel) should be fit for the last game, just got a slight niggle.” He added.

USA pays the price for a slow over-rate

Team USA had not only given team India a low target to chase, but the team’s miscalculation with the over rate, also costed them 5 runs.

As per ICC’s new policies, team USA faced the repercussions of bowling with a slow over rate, as team India was awarded with 5 runs.

India required 35 runs off of 30 bowls, when the umpire made it known to the USA captain Aaron Jones, that the USA team would have to pay the price of their slow overs. After the declaration, India had 30 runs to score off of 30 bowls.
