Let's check out the all the records from USA’s milestone triumph:

1. Third highest successful run chase in a Men’s T20 World Cup game

The T20 format calls for a lot of high-scoring games, which are exciting and nail-biting. In the history of the game, there have been such instances where high scores above 190+ have been chased with ease. Hence, in this game, the USA also chased down a score of 195 runs only to write their name in the history. This was the 3rd highest chase of the T20 World Cup tournament. 

2. Equal second most sixes in a T20 World Cup innings

The US hero Aaron Jones hit 10 sixes in his 94 runs, which became the second-highest sixes in an inning. His effortless batting led him to attack the bowlers with ease, which turned out to be a good game for the team. His confident approach helped him score an unbeaten 94 runs off 40 balls, which eventually proved beneficial for the team, and hence, Jones has equalled himself with Chris Gayle in the sixes tally. 

3. Second highest stand for the third-wicket in a Men’s T20 World Cup game

Andres Gous and Aaron Jones scored a 131-run standoff 58 balls, which became the second-highest stand for the third wicket in a T20 World Cup. They crossed South Africa and were behind England, where Alex Hales and Eoin Morgan scored 152 runs in 2014. The US batters were in no mood to let the match slip out of their hands and instead kept on scoring runs at regular intervals. 

4. Highest partnership for USA in a Men’s T20I match

Now, this 131-run partnership of Andres Gous and Aaron Jones is the highest partnership in the history of the T20I game for the USA. They have written their names on their nation's history by playing an amazing inning. This match and the innings will be remembered for quite a long time. 

5. Fastest half-century for USA

Aaron Jones has another record to his name. He has scored the fastest half-century in a T20I game for the USA. His innings consisted of four boundaries and 10 sixes, during which he scored 94 runs off 40 balls. Not only the USA, but this was so far the fastest fifty by any batter from the North American side.
