USA vs. South Africa: Start time, squads, where to watch T20 Cricket World Cup Super 8 match



USA vs. South Africa: Start time, squads, where to watch T20 Cricket World Cup Super 8 match

The U.S. cricket team’s dream run continues.

After triumphing over Canada and Pakistan, and gaining points in a washed-out match against Ireland, due to torrential rain in Fort Lauderdale, the U.S. cricket team has progressed to the second stage of the ICC Men’s T20 Cricket World Cup 2024: the Super 8s.

The Super 8 stage of the tournament will see eight teams split into two pools of four, with the top two teams from each to go through to the semi-finals later this month. The U.S., grouped with England, West Indies and South Africa, will clash with South Africa in the first match of the Super 8s stage Wednesday.

Though ranked number five in ICC’s latest T20 rankings, South Africa is searching for its first T20 World Cup, having never made it to the final stage.

The U.S. cricket team’s progression to the group stage also automatically qualifies them for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2026, which will be hosted by India and Sri Lanka. The team will also get a boost in prize money, with all teams reaching the Super 8 guaranteed a minimum of $382,500, according to USA Cricket press release.

Vice captain of the U.S. cricket team, Aaron Jones, in a post-match press conference last Friday said that for the U.S. to qualify for the Super 8s was “a big thing for us.”

“Over the last couple of years, we’ve been speaking about playing in the World Cup, playing more games against the former member nations,” Jones said. “And here we are doing it right now. Qualifying for the Super 8s is really good. It’s a big thing for us.”

“And not only for us, but [for] fans around America as well,” he added. “We really appreciate them.”

Here’s everything you need to know about the Super 8 stage match between the U.S. and South Africa at the 2024 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup, including the start time, players and how to watch.
