    Even if the USA team wins one of their remaining two games in the group stage, they will have a realistic chance of qualifying for the Super 8s round. Fans would have observed that almost every cricketer in the USA squad was born outside the United States.

    Most of the current USA team members were born in India or Pakistan, but here’s a list of two such cricketers who were born in South Africa and are now playing for USA in T20 World Cup 2024.
