USA vs Canada kicks off the T20 World Cup 2024 campaign. The match will be played on Sunday, June 2 from 6 am IST which is 7.30 pm local time. 

USA vs Canada Team Analysis


The USA is led by Monank Patel. He is one of the few experienced players to bank up as he leads this team into the World Cup. The USA recently won a T20I series against Bangladesh. The series win should bolster the chances of the team in this ICC event.

The hosts are placed alongside India, Pakistan, Canada, and Ireland in Group A. Ali Khan and Corey Anderson are the two most experienced players on the side. The side has several players of Indian origin. 


Canada is led by Saad Bin Zafar. They recently won against Nepal in the World Cup qualifier game. It was a very one-sided contest one in which the Canadian team dominated.

The win will give them a huge boost heading into a major tournament like the T20 World Cup. The USA team also has many players of Indian origin and hence they have a good bowling attack overall.

USA vs Canada Key Factors 

Pitch Conditions 

The Grand Prairie Stadium in Dallas will host four games in the T20 World Cup. Nothing much can be said about the ground conditions as of now. This being the T20 World Cup, the pitches are expected to be batting-friendly.

There should be enough for the bowlers to take advantage of as well. The first game should give a fair idea as to how the wicket will play. 

There are chances of rain that can play spoilsport in the campaign opener of the T20 World Cup. There is 70 percent chance of rain in the evening and scattered thunderstorms almost throughout the day. The match might well be a curtailed game. 

Form and Fitness 

There are no fitness concerns in both games. The USA recently played a T2-0I series against Bangladesh and won 2-1. Canada played the ear,m-up match against Nepal. There were no reports of injury concerns in either of the two teams. 

The two teams should be pretty confident heading into this contest. USA's win over Bangladesh was a significant one and Canada also dominated Nepal in the game. 

Tactical Acumen

This being a T20 World Cup game, the stakes are high. Both captains will be fully aware of what is at stake here. Their recent wins will come in handy in boosting the confidence of the side.
