India’s bowlers delivered an exceptional performance, restricting the USA to a modest 110/8 in their allotted 20 overs. Arshdeep Singh emerged as the standout bowler with remarkable figures of 4/9, but it was Siraj’s athleticism in the field that stole the show.

During the 15th over, Nitish Kumar attempted to break the shackles with a powerful shot aimed over deep square leg. Siraj, positioned near the boundary, timed his jump to perfection and grabbed a stunning catch, leaving cricket legends Ravi Shastri and Yuvraj Singh, who were commentating, thoroughly impressed.

“What a catch, what a catch that is! Mohammed Siraj has pulled off a blinder. This is magnificent,” exclaimed Shastri.

Yuvraj Singh, equally impressed, added, “I think that was a decent shot, but big boundaries, and Siraj took a blinder right there.”

Post the match, Yuvraj Singh presented the fielder of the match to the award to Mohammad Siraj. He congratulated team India for their win. The Southpaw praised Arshdeep’s bowling performance as well as his handy contribution with the bat against Pakistan.

Yuvraj acknowledged Suryakumar Yadav and Shivam Dube‘s crucial innings. He called Suryakumar’s innings as ‘very unlike Surya innings’ and also told Dube that scoring runs in the World Cup games gives you a lot of confidence. Further, he told the team not to take any pressure and enjoy each and every game. Here is the video of Yuvraj Singh presenting the fielder of the match award after the clash against USA:

Arshdeep Singh’s early breakthrough set the tone for India’s bowling performance. He dismissed USA opener Shayan Jahangir on the very first ball of the match, making history as the first Indian bowler to take a wicket on the first delivery of a T20 World Cup match.

Reflecting on the match and the team’s strategy, Indian skipper Rohit Sharma, who won the toss and elected to bowl first, said, “We will bowl first. It has played better in the last two games, but you need to assess the conditions quickly and then let the game take over. It’s all about constantly getting better and keeping the momentum going. It’s important to do the right things. That was a great game to play; we didn’t have enough runs on the board, but the bowlers came to the party and won the game for us. We’re playing the same team.”

With this victory, India is on the verge of securing their place in the Super 8 stage of the tournament. Both India and the USA remain unbeaten in the group stage, each with four points, making their upcoming matches crucial for progression.
