If Rashid Khan & Boys' victory against Australia in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 has shocked you, there is even more shocking news coming from the USA Team. According to some reports, the USA Team denied Dwayne Bravo the role of bowling coach for ICC T20 World Cup 2024. 

Later, Dwayne Bravo was roped in by the Afghanistan team as their bowling consultant for the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. His excellence is quite visible as Afghans have beaten world champion teams like Australia and New Zealand in ICC T20 World Cup 2024. 

The Asian Giants made wonderful efforts in the Australia vs Afghanistan match of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. The AFG vs AUS clash took place on Sunday morning according to IST. Afghanistan showed an astonishing bowling effort to defend their 146-run total in the 2nd innings. 

Afghan bowlers outplayed Australia during the chase 

Notably, their bowlers showed impressive teamwork to outplay Australia this time, something they could not achieve in the ODI World Cup last year. Notably, Afghanistan almost defeated the Aussies during the match by dismissing their 7 batters before 100 runs on the board. 

Australia needed about 200 odd runs for victory at that time. Glenn Maxwell came to their rescue with his knock of the decade. Maxwell shattered an unbeaten double century at Wankhede Stadium in Mumbai to stun fans all over the world. 

This time too, Glenn Maxwell shattered 59 runs off 41 balls to score the most runs for the team during the chase with 6 fours and 3 sixes. However, the Afghan Army did not make the same mistake this time and dismissed Maxwell well in time. 

Dwayne Bravo contacted the USA team for a bowling coach role 

Dwayne Bravo has been getting a lot of credit for his work for the Rashid Khan-led side in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Bravo was roped in as an Afghan bowling consultant ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 with the advice of Head Coach Jonathan Trott. 

Journalist Peter Della Penna has revealed a major secret on his official Twitter handle. He has revealed Dwayne Bravo contacted USA Cricket for the role of bowling coach in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. However, they denied it. 

"True story: Dwayne Bravo reached out to USA Cricket to offer his services as bowling coach for the T20 World Cup. USA Cricket said thanks but no thanks", he tweeted. Have a look at his tweet below. 

USA outplayed Pakistan in ICC T20 World Cup 2024

Notably, the USA Cricket Team also showed a wonderful performance in their first-ever T20 World Cup. The co-hosts defeated Pakistan in their opening game and also snatched a spot in the Super 8 round from them. 

The USA defeating Pakistan was the first upset in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 while Afghanistan beating Australia has arrived as the latest. 

Meanwhile, Rashid Khan & Co. have unfinished business lying ahead. Now, they need to crush Bangladesh in their next game to grab a semi-final spot.

However, they would also pray that India outplays Australia in their next game as it is another condition for Afghanistan to grab a place in the semis.
