Former New Zealand all-rounder named in USA T20 World Cup 2024 squad

Srinagar: In a surprising move, co-hosts USA have named former New Zealand all-rounder and member of 2015 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup finalist team Corey Anderson, in its squad for the T20 World Cup 2024.

Led by 31-year-old wicket-keeper batter Monank Patel, USA’s squad features some familiar names alongside performers from the recent T20I series against Canada, which they won 4-0.

In a boost for the team’s bowling stocks, tearaway quick Ali Khan is fit for the tournament, shaking off a hamstring injury which kept him out of the Canada series.

The 33-year old, who has featured in several domestic leagues around the world, can also be spotted in the film clip for the official T20 World Cup anthem.

There are other familiar names in the mix, including Saurabh Netravalkar, the most capped USA player, Aaron Jones, and opener Steven Taylor, their highest run-scorer in international cricket.

Off-spinner Milind Kumar, who made his debut in the same series, has also been included in the squad.

USA squad: Monank Patel (captain), Aaron Jones (vice-Captain), Andries Gous, Corey Anderson, Ali Khan, Harmeet Singh, Jessy Singh, Milind Kumar, Nisarg Patel, Nitish Kumar, Noshtush Kenjige, Saurabh Nethralvakar, Shadley Van Schalkwyk, Steven Taylor, Shayan Jahangir.
Reserve Players: Gajanand Singh, Juanoy Drysdale, Yasir Mohammad.

All teams are allowed to make changes to their squad until 25 May, after which any alteration will require approval from ICC’s Event Technical Committee.
