Pakistan to Kick Off T20 World Cup Campaign Against Hosts USA in Dallas

Pakistan is set to kick off its T20 World Cup campaign on Thursday with a match against hosts the United States of America. The match will be played in Dallas, Texas, and will begin at 8:30 PM Pakistan time.

Pakistan heads into the World Cup on the back of recent defeats against England, which may affect their confidence. Additionally, the team is dealing with the setback of losing Imad Wasim to an injury. Despite these challenges, Pakistan is looking to make a strong start in the tournament.

Pitch and Conditions

Dallas experienced heavy rain in the days leading up to the tournament, but the weather has been mostly dry since the World Cup began. This trend is expected to continue on Thursday, allowing for a full game without interruption.

The pitch has provided early seam movement and good bounce in the first two matches, making it a challenging surface for batsmen. However, the opening match at this venue saw the two highest scores of the tournament so far, suggesting that there is also potential for high-scoring encounters if batsmen can navigate the initial movement.

Overall, both teams will be looking to leverage their strengths to secure a win in this crucial opening match.
