Team USA has surprised everyone with its performance in the T20 Cricket World Cup so far, but the real work begins now that it's in the Super Eight rounds. Its first of these post-group-stage matches puts together United States vs South Africa on Wednesday, June 19.

One of the two host countries of the 2024 T20 tournament, USA had never qualified four the tournament prior to this, so its elevation to the Super Eight (including a shock victory over Pakistan in the group stage) is impressive. Cricket fans in the country are expecting a great performance for the rest of the tournament, and they could be rewarded.

This could be tough now that US is up against South Africa, though, as it's the highest-ranked opponent it's faced in the tournament so far. The ICC puts it at the #5 slot (#6 prior to the tournament beginning) and after coasting through the group stage on some easier opponents, it's ready for a real fight.

The Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in North Sound, Antigua and Barbuda is hosting this match, but you don't need to travel to the Caribbean to catch the action. Here's how to watch United States vs South Africa online or on TV.

How to watch United States vs South Africa in the US

The main way to watch all the T20 cricket games, including United States vs South Africa, is by using the cable channel Willow. If you didn't know you'd want cricket when you bought your cable plan, or don't have a cable plan, then there's a live TV streaming service you can sign up for to get it.

This is Sling TV, which usually costs $40 per month for its Orange or Blue tiers. You can pick either of those for Willow, but you'll need to pay extra for the World Sports add-on; $10 per month extra to be exact. Here's how Orange and Blue are different.
