US Cricket Team Defeated Asian team for Second time

The US cricket team defeated the strong Bangladesh cricket team twice in a row in the series of 3 T20Is. The United States won today’s cricket match by six runs against the powerful Asian cricket squad. 

The United States cricket team is not as popular as football, volleyball, or soccer in the US. However, the youngsters in the newly built team have no concerns about this. They are giving their best regardless of any big name, fame, or money. 

The US cricket team won spectacularly against the strong Asian cricket team, Bangladesh. While playing the second match of the three-match T-20 series against Bangladesh, America scored a poor 144 runs. 

Initially, it seemed to be an easy target for Bangladeshi cricketers. However, the bowling department turned it into a stern chase and restricted the opponent to just 138 runs. Ali Khan shined in the US cricket team’s victory. 

With the victory against Bangladesh, the US team has geared up for the upcoming T20 World Cup. Their second consecutive win is undoubtedly alarming for the rest of the teams participating in the World Cup. 

Although the US cricket team’s achievement is not enough to challenge big teams like India, England, and Australia, it will definitely boost their morale in the upcoming tournament.
