USA bater Aaron Jones hammered a mammoth 103m six against Canada, sending the ball soaring into the stands. Co-hosts USA made a dazzling beginning in the T20 World Cup 2024, securing a comeback victory against Canada in the tournament opener.

Competing in Texas on Sunday, 2 June (IST), USA showcased their batting prowess, successfully chasing down 195 runs in just 17.4 overs. In pursuit of a challenging 195-run target, USA encountered early setbacks with a couple of wickets falling as the required run rate escalated rapidly.

The boundaries kept coming as the duo took some risks and played some great shots. But the most exciting moment was when Jones hit a huge six off Saad Bin Zafar.

The Canadian captain bowled a good-length ball that was perfect for hitting, and Jones took advantage of it. With perfect timing, he hit the ball with the middle of his bat, sending it flying out of the ground.
