US cricket team advances to second round in Twenty20 World Cup

LAUDERHILL, Florida — The United States cricket team made more history by reaching the second round in its Twenty20 World Cup debut after its last group game against Ireland was washed out Friday.

Rain meant the match at Broward County Stadium was abandoned without a ball bowled, advancing the Americans to the Super Eight stage and automatically qualifying them for the 2026 Twenty20 World Cup in India and Sri Lanka.

The U.S. qualified for this T20 World Cup only as a co-host with the West Indies, but it has used home advantage to make a stunning first impression in its first major cricket tournament.

While the Americans progressed alongside unbeaten India from Group A, former champion Pakistan and winless Ireland were eliminated from Super Eight contention.

Pakistan won the title in 2009 and reached two more finals, including at the last T20 World Cup in 2022. Pakistan has failed to get out of the group stage for the first time. Ireland was expected to be a threat, too. The Irish also reached the second round on debut in 2009 and repeated in 2022.

The competition point from the washout was enough for the U.S. to advance after beating Canada in Texas and stunning Pakistan in Texas during the first week.

Tying Pakistan in regular overs then beating it in a super over was one of the greatest upsets in the tournament’s history.

The Americans were thumped by India, one of the title favorites, as expected on Wednesday but the hosts’ progression without being able to play on Friday was still well deserved.

The umpires made four inspections of the wet outfield before heavy rain arrived at around 1:30 p.m. local time and the match was called off three hours after its scheduled start.

The 17th-ranked U.S. joined the West Indies, India, Australia, South Africa and Afghanistan in the Super Eight, with two more teams yet to qualify. The Super Eight starting on Wednesday splits into two groups, with each team guaranteed three games to try and reach the semifinals.

Nepal wins toss

At Kingstown, St Vincent, Nepal won the toss and chose to bowl in its later match against Group D leaders South Africa, the first international match between the teams.

South Africa already has qualified for the Super Eight stage after winning its first three matches against the Netherlands, Sri Lanka and Bangladesh. South Africa’s first match in the Super Eight playoffs is next Wednesday against the U.S. in Antigua.

Nepal lost to the Netherlands in its opening match, and its second match against Sri Lanka was rained out, meaning this will be its first game in 10 days. It is also the first match at the tournament to be played in St. Vincent.

Nepal captain Rauhit Praudel said he elected to bowl first to take advantage of easier batting conditions in the second innings. Proteas captain Aiden Markram said he would have chosen to bat first.

For the first time at the tournament, Nepal has been able to select its leading player, Sandeep Lamichhane. Lamichhane was convicted of rape in January and sentenced to eight years in jail. But his conviction was overturned in May by the Nepal High Court.

His application for a visa to travel with the Nepal squad to the United States was rejected. But he has been able to join the team in St. Vincent, bringing the Nepal squad up to its full complement of 15 players in the Caribbean.

New Zealand bowls first

At Tarouba, Trinidad, New Zealand won the toss and chose to bowl in a Group C match against Uganda. The West Indies and Bangladesh already have taken the two Super Eight qualifying spots available from the group.

New Zealand lost its first two matches at the tournament to Bangladesh and the West Indies and can no longer qualify. It sits at the bottom of the group behind Uganda, which has two points from a win over Papua New Guinea.

New Zealand’s failure at this tournament ends a run of success at white ball World Cups. It has reached at least the semifinals of the last six white-ball world tournaments over the last decade.

How to watch the US Open in the US

US Open coverage is spread across NBC, USA, and Peacock in the US. Round 3 coverage will take place on Saturday. Coverage will be available from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on USA, before switching to NBC until 8 p.m. ET. Peacock will also carry coverage from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. Final Round coverage will start on Sunday from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET on USA, before switching to NBC until 7 p.m. ET. Peacock coverage will also be available from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. Peacock subscriptions start at just $5.99 a month.

While Peacock will cover you for the portion of the tournament that airs on USA, you’ll need to explore other options to access NBC coverage. This is where a live TV streaming package like Sling TV or Fubo can come in handy. (When it comes to both of these options, you should double-check that NBC is available in your area by inputting your zip code before signing up.)

To get USA and NBC on Sling TV, you’ll need to opt for the service’s Sling Blue plan, which costs $40 a month. New users can get half-off their first month, so it’s only a $20 investment up-front. Fubo is another solid option that carries both NBC and USA. The service costs $79.99 a month, but new users are eligible for a one-week free trial.

How to watch the US Open in the UK

US Open coverage airs on Sky Sports in the UK. You can stream all the action through Now TV, where subscription prices and contracts vary. Now offers a single-day pass for £14.99, which is a solid option if you only want to tune in for a specific round.

How to watch the US Open from anywhere

You don’t need to worry about missing out on the action if you’ll be traveling away from home during the tournament. You can easily keep up with your streaming subscriptions via VPN. Short for virtual private networks, VPNs allow you to temporarily change your device’s location so that you can keep up with your usual websites and apps from anywhere. Since the services we’ve highlighted require country-specific forms of payment, this suggestion is best for people who are just hoping to keep up with their existing subscriptions while traveling abroad.

ExpressVPN is our go-to recommendation, since it’s easy to use and has a 30-day money-back guarantee. You can read all about it in our ExpressVPN review

Note: The use of VPNs is illegal in certain countries, and using VPNs to access region-locked streaming content might constitute a breach of the terms of use for certain services. Insider does not endorse or condone the illegal use of VPNs.
