Three uncapped players set to debut for USA in Uganda

ICC World Cricket League Division III, Road to England 2019 Cricket World Cup 

The Team USA squad has been announced for ICC World Cricket League Division 3 in Uganda. 

Following on from the USA’s success at #WCL4, the extended squad of 31 players named in the lead up to that event were joined by 13 new faces at the March trial at Moosa Stadium in Houston. This group was then reduced to 19 for the recent Skill Development Camp in Houston where players were further assessed to reach the final squad of 14 players, plus one traveling reserve.      

Commenting on the squad for #WCL3, USA Chairman of Selectors Ricardo Powell said: “The selection panel believes we have selected the best possible squad to represent the United States of America at the upcoming World Cricket League Division 3. It was pleasing to see some significant improvements in individual players at the trials. There was strong competition for spots, meaning some quality players have missed selection. We encourage all players across the country to keep working hard on their game and as we continue to drive the standard of U.S. cricket forward.” 

“Four changes have been made from the squad that travelled to LA for WCL 4. We feel these players will boost the squad’s batting depth and also its flexibility, with additional spin bowling options. We wish the selected players and coaching staff all the best for their preparation and a successful event.”    

USA Head Coach Pubudu Dassanayake said: “I have been pleased to see the improvements in a number of players, both those who have been selected, but also those who are unlucky to miss selection. We have had two great camps in Houston to challenge our players and help to increase performance standards. We are looking forward to getting the group together in LA for some more practice matches before we head to South Africa for our pre-tour, on the way to Uganda. There is plenty more hard work to be done to prepare as best we can over the next month but I am confident this group can go to Uganda and win WCL 3.”   

Team USA squad: Steven Taylor (Captain), Akeem Dodson, Alex Amsterdam, Camilus Alexander, Elmore Hutchinson, Fahad Babar, Jasdeep Singh, Mohammed Ahsan Ali Khan, Mohammed Ibrahim Khaleel, Mrunal Patel, Nicholas Standford, Noshtush Kenjige, Timil Patel, Timroy Allen, Sagar Patel (traveling reserve).

The squad includes 11 incumbents from the Division Four campaign, with Abdullah Syed and Danial Ahmed both missing out, while Alex Amsterdam is doubtful due to work commitment. From the remaining seven only Mrunal Patel has represented the United States at the senior level. Wilson and Sagar Patel are both former youth players knocking on the door. The hype about the three First Class player carry through with Alexander (Windward Islands), Khaleel (Hyderbad) and Silva (Sri Lanka) all making it to the final round of trials. Noshtush Kenjige completes the list with his talent and ability keeping him in the mix since the USA Combines of 2016.

USA Cricket Calendar 2017

On behalf of the staff at ICC Americas, we hope everyone is enjoying a great start to the new year. We appreciate the work each of you do to help grow and support the game of cricket in the United States.

In response to many questions we receive, I wanted to get out a quick note to both update everyone on USACA and to also communicate upcoming programs that our office will continue to lead and oversee while USACA remains suspended.

With respect to USACA, over the last few months, our staff along with staff from ICC headquarters and the Sustainable Foundation Advisory Group (SFAG) have worked in good faith with USACA to continue to try to build a Constitution that will both unify the community and be a foundation for the continued growth of cricket in the U.S. This included a face to face meeting in Dallas on December 12 with leadership from USACA, members of the SFAG and staff from the ICC including CEO David Richardson and COO Iain Higgins.  We took some significant steps forward at that meeting and have continued to move forward in hours of subsequent calls and emails.  While we haven’t always agreed, I think we’ve all worked together in the best interest of the cricket community.

The ICC Board heard an update on the work to date on February 4 and sent a clear message that the revised Constitution should be finalized and provided to USACA as soon as possible so they can vote on it by no later than April 1 so the ICC Board can again consider USACA’s suspended status at their April Board meeting.

As mentioned above, given USACA’s suspended status, the ICC Americas office will continue to lead and oversee the selection and preparation for Team USA Senior Men, U18’s and Women’s squads who all participate in important global events this year.  Information on the activities planned in support of those teams is below.  We believe these plans, coupled with strong competition within local leagues and support from all US cricket stakeholders should allow Team USA’s men, youth and women the best chance at success in 2017.

Senior Men:

When Who
Team USA WCL 3 Trial Matches Houston March 16 – 19 Existing Squad, plus some players to be added by USA Selection Panel

Pre Qualifier Tour UK (TBC) August 5 – 12 Selected Women’s Squad
Europe / Americas T20 Qualifier Scotland August 12 – 20 Selected Women’s Squad

Further to these National programs, it is our hope that “zonal” high performance and talent ID initiatives will be rolled out later in the year to support the on-going development of cricketers within key geographical centers across the country.

ICCA is also partnering with Cricket Australia, the US Olympic Committee, other National Governing Bodies and US cricket stakeholders to create a specific USA Coach Education system. This is a major piece of work that will be rolled out in phases. The hope is that draft “Intro to Cricket (level 0)” and “Level 1” content will be complete in time for a Level 1 Course in Atlanta in May. Following this initial course, facilitators from around the country will be trained in order to roll out Level 1 Coaching Courses in Q3 or Q4 this year.

We hope the information above is helpful but please don’t hesitate to reach out if you have questions. Tom Evans (tom.evans@iccamericas.com) is the best point of contact for any questions related to men’s, women’s, U18 or coach education programs and I am the best point of contact for anything governance related (eric.parthen@iccamericas.com).

Thanks again for all you do to support cricket in the United States!
