USA vs IRE, SA vs NEP, NZ vs UGA: T20 World Cup 2024 team news

USA vs IRE news

With India already in the Super Eights, the second spot in Group A is up for grabs. Unfortunately, a flash flood emergency threatens the game. If the match is washed out (or the USA win), the USA will qualify at the expense of Pakistan and Ireland.

USA captain Monank Patel, who was ruled out against India due to a shoulder injury, may return to the playing XI. Ireland are unlikely to make any changes.

SA vs NEP news

With South Africa already in the second round and Sri Lanka out of contention, the second place will be contested between Bangladesh and the Netherlands despite Nepal being still mathematically in.

As coach Rob Walter confirmed, South Africa will probably play a full-strength team. Meanwhile, Sandeep Lamichhane's arrival after missing Nepal's USA leg of the tournament due to visa denial has bolstered their team. He is likely to come in straight into the side. 

NZ vs UGA news

Afghanistan’s win against Papua New Guinea eliminated New Zealand from the Super Eights race. They will play for their pride, eying to open their account in the tournament. Mark Chapman may return to the XI for Rachin Ravindra.

Uganda can take a lot of heart from their win against PNG earlier, marking their first victory at the T20 World Cup. Riazat Ali Shah and Simon Ssesazi are expected to do the bulk of their scoring, while Brian Masaba and Alpesh Ramjani will lead the bowling department.
