Team India Reaches Florida for Final T20 World Cup Group Match

Florida – Following their impressive performance in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, Team India has landed in Florida for their final group-stage encounter against Canada. In a video shared on BCCI's official media handle, players Mohammed Siraj and Yuzvendra Chahal were seen chatting during their flight. The BCCI captioned the clip, "Team India has reached Florida for their last group-stage match of the T20 World Cup."

India currently tops Group A, having defeated all three of their previous opponents. They secured a spot in the Super Eight stage with a perfect record. Their latest victory came against the USA, where they won by seven wickets.

In the match against the USA, Indian captain Rohit Sharma opted to bowl first after winning the toss. The USA managed to post 110 for 8 in their 20 overs, with notable contributions from Nitish Kumar (27) and Steven Taylor (24). India's bowling attack was led by Arshdeep Singh, who took 4 wickets, while Hardik Pandya and Axar Patel contributed with 2 and 1 wickets respectively.

Chasing a modest target of 111, India faced early setbacks as they lost Rohit Sharma (03) and Virat Kohli (00) cheaply. Rishabh Pant (18) also fell early, leaving India in a precarious position at 39 for 3. However, a resilient unbeaten 72-run partnership between Suryakumar Yadav (50) and Shivam Dubey (31*) guided India to victory. For the USA, Saurabh Netravalkar claimed 2 wickets, while Ali Khan took 1 wicket. Arshdeep Singh was named 'Player of the Match' for his exceptional bowling performance.

India will now face Canada in their last group match, aiming to continue their dominance and advance further in the tournament.
