New Delhi. The host US team has made a great start to the ICC T20 World Cup. The team, which played the first match of the tournament against Canada, registered a huge victory of 7 wickets on the basis of explosive batting. Batting first, Canada had set a target of 195 runs, which the US achieved easily on the basis of Aaron Jones' stormy innings. Jones has become the first batsman to score a half-century for his team in the T20 World Cup.
