On Sunday, the United States will cross swords against Canada in the opening game of the much-anticipated T20 World Cup 2024. This game marks the beginning of a thrilling tournament where twenty top T20-playing nations will collide for supremacy. 

This is the first time these two teams will meet in a group-stage World Cup game. The United States will start as the obvious favourites, having recently defeated Bangladesh in a bilateral T20I series. 

However, they shouldn't underestimate Canada as they punched above their weight to enter the main event. 

As both teams gear up for an exciting contest, let's see how the pitch at the Grand Prairie Stadium is expected to behave throughout the game. 

Grand Prairie Stadium Dallas Pitch Report

The surface at the Grand Prairie Stadium will offer a hint of seam movement to the pacers early on with the new ball. 

As it's the tournament's first game, expect a lively deck having a tinge of grass and offering some zip and extra bounce. As it's an evening game, the pacers, particularly the hit-the-deck ones, will likely be more effective than the spinners. 

Overall, it will be a decent batting track, with a moderate-scoring game expected in the World Cup opener.
