    Aaron Jones makes unbeaten 94 from 40 balls in an extraordinary display of power-hitting for United States in opening match of T20 World Cup

    Aaron Jones has made an unbeaten 94 from 40 balls in an extraordinary display of power-hitting to lead the United States to a seven-wicket win over historic rivals Canada in the opening match of the T20 World Cup

    Co-hosts the United States seemed under pressure when Canada made 194 for five batting first and then lost a wicket to the second ball of their innings.

    The total demanded the United States achieve their highest-ever run chase in a T20 international to win the match, eclipsing the previous best of 169.

    In the end they reached the target with ease and with 14 balls remaining courtesy of Jones' 10th six.
