<div style=' background:#FFFFFF;color:#000000;font-family:Verdana;width:auto;padding:5px;max-height:100%;'><span><p>The USA Cricket team, with a surprising number of players with Indian heritage, is ready to take on cricketing powerhouse India in the T20 World Cup. This unique team makeup has caused a stir of excitement among Indian immigrants in the USA.</p><p>Leading the American team is Monank Patel, the captain and a wicketkeeper-batsman. Originally from Gujarat, India, Patel has captained the USA team since 2018 and is known for his calmness and cricket knowledge.</p><p>The batting order has a strong Indian influence. Parthiv Patel, a middle-order batsman with Indian roots, brings experience and composure to the batting line-up. Youngster Aditya Singh, another Indian talent, is a player to watch with his elegant strokes and ability to score quickly.</p><p>Adding depth to the team is the experienced all-rounder Nisarg Patel. Born in Ahmedabad, India, the 36-year-old contributes with both bat and ball. His left-arm spin bowling provides valuable control, and interestingly, he also holds a master's degree in pharmaceutical sciences.</p><p>Pakistan is also represented on the USA squad. Right-arm fast bowler Ali Khan is a nightmare for opposing batsmen with his express pace exceeding 140 kmph. Shayan Jahangir, a batsman and wicket-keeper with Pakistani heritage, offers batting flexibility and can also keep wickets if needed.</p><p>Several other players of Indian origin are part of the team, including Harmeet Singh, Yasir Saeed Mohammad, Nitish Kumar, Jasdeep Singh, and Nosthush Kenjige. Interestingly, Kenjige, though born in Alabama, was raised in Nilgiris and Bengaluru, India.</p><p>These players' stories are inspiring. Saurabh Netravalkar, the hero of the Super Over against Pakistan, left Mumbai for higher studies in the US. Captain Monank Patel chased his cricket dream and opened a restaurant in New Jersey after limited opportunities in India. Milind Kumar, a veteran Indian domestic cricketer, now works in the USA but displayed his skills with a crucial catch in the Super Over against Pakistan.</p><p>This USA team, with its mix of talent and deep Indian connections, is sure to put on a determined performance against cricketing giant India. The match promises to be a display of passion, skill, and maybe a touch of friendly competition.&nbsp;</p><span></div>
