USA tops the points table
This is America's second win in T20 World Cup 2024. With this win, they have got 4 points. Now they are at the top of Group A in the points table. The Indian team is in second place with 2 points from one win. Pakistan (0) is third, Canada (0) is fourth and Ireland (0) is in fifth place.

America can go to Super-8
In the T20 World Cup 2024, 20 teams have been divided into four groups of 5 each. 2 teams from each group will qualify for the Super-8 stage. Anyone can get a maximum of 8 points in the group. Only America and India can reach 8 points from Group A, because both these teams have not lost a single match so far. Pakistan, Canada, Ireland have lost one match each and these three teams cannot go beyond 6 points. America still has to play matches against India and Ireland. If it wins even one of these matches, it will have 6 points and will be strongly present in the Super-8 race.

Every match is do or die for Pakistan
Pakistan has only 3 matches left in the group. Now it has to play against India, Ireland and Canada. If it has to reach the Super-8 without any hassle, then it will have to win these three matches. This will not be easy. Especially winning against India will be difficult for it. Ireland has also been adept at making upsets. Still, if we assume that Pakistan wins all its three matches. India also wins only three matches. America also defeats Ireland. Then India, America, Pakistan will have 6-6 points and the two teams with better run rate will enter the Super-8.

India-Pakistan match on 9 June
The match between India and Pakistan is on 9th June. If the Indian team wins this match then Pakistan will be in trouble. Then Pakistan will get maximum 4 points and that too only if it defeats Ireland and Canada. If this happens and America defeats Ireland then Pakistan may be out of the tournament. America will have 6 points after defeating Ireland. On the other hand, India will be at the forefront of the race for Super-8 after defeating Pakistan. After Pakistan, the Indian team has to play against America and Canada.

It is clear that the equation of Group A in T20 World Cup 2024 has become quite complicated. Cricket lovers would not have forgotten IPL 2024 when the equations of the playoffs changed every day. Finally a team like RCB managed to make it to the playoffs, which was considered out of the race after the initial defeat. Pakistan's team will also try to make a comeback like RCB. No one knows what will happen next, but America has made the World Cup interesting by defeating Pakistan.
