The US produced an all-time World Cup upset with a dramatic five-run win in the super over against Pakistan on Thursday.

It was a nervy start by Pakistan, who lost two wickets in the first three overs, but captain Babar Azam eventually finished as their top scorer, limping to 44 after a slow power play.

However, the US bowled well, with Nosthush Kenjige proving a particular thorn in their side as he finished with 3-30. Pakistan ended on 159-7, with the help of Shadab Khan's 40.

Monank Patel brought up his 50 off 38 balls at the end of the 13th over before being caught by Rizwan, with the home fans starting to believe they could be watching a major upset.

Though two wickets in seven balls slightly dented the mood, the US finished the second innings strongly, with Aaron Jones plundering 36, including two boundaries, before Nitish Kumar struck a four on the final ball to keep the game alive.

Jones and Harmeet Singh caused more problems in the super over, impressing with an 18-0 as Pakistan failed to find any composure.

Ultimately, it was Kumar who proved the hero once more, as he caught out Iftikhar Ahmed as Pakistan failed to chase down the target, and the hosts sit top of Group A after two victories.

Another pick of the bunch in the US' bowlers was Saurabh Netravalkar, who finished on 2-18, before taking the all-important wicket in the super over. He has now become the top wicket-taker for the US in T20Is with 29, going past Nisarg Patel's 27.

Steven Taylor has also broken the record for the most catches by a fielder (10) in T20Is for the US, going past Patel's nine.

And despite being on the losing side, Amar created some history of his own as he became the top scorer in T20Is with 4067 runs, surpassing Virat Kohli's 4038.
