England won the toss and opted to bowl first leading to the USA batters scoring a total of 115 runs in 18.5 overs. This was a commendable performance from the newcomers competing against the permanent England team. However, the English batsmen made it look too easy as they finished 117/0 in 9.4 overs.

Here’s what Aaron Jones said

USA captain Aaron Jones hopes to open the eyes of the American public towards cricket as his team has exceeded their own expectations in their debut at the T20 World Cup.

“Hopefully this will open the eyes of the American public. We’ve got a lot of calls and messages of support during this World Cup. I see us getting bigger and better from here.” Jones said.

“Hard game to get to grips to be honest. We did not have a good last two games, something for us to talk about when we go back to USA but that’s how it goes. Looking forward to playing more big teams.” Aaron said.

“Wicket was a bit sticky, Rashid very experienced, very good bowler. Our shot selection was not good, we knew he was the dangerman. Something to look into and we definitely will come back harder.”

He added.

Aaron Jones said all this as he addressed the audience in the post match ceremony after his side lost the match by 10 whopping wickets. He also praised Jos Buttler, the England captain for his exceptional batting skills.

“[on Buttler] Very experienced and he batted beautifully today. It’s very good for us, this is our first World Cup, lot of people did not think we will be here playing against England, West Indies and the big boys.”
