A match was played between Pakistan and America in Dallas on Thursday night. Batting first, Pakistan scored 159/7. In reply, America's innings also ended at 159 runs for 3 wickets. After the match was tied, a super over was played. Pakistan gave the ball to Mohammad Aamir in the super over. The same Aamir who was once banned due to spot fixing. Call it a coincidence or misfortune, but Aamir proved to be a villain for Pakistan this time too. America batted first in the super over. Aaron Jones and Harmeet Singh took charge from their side.
