USA Cricket have announced a 14-member squad led by Saurabh Netravalkar for the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 ODI tri-series, also involving UAE and Scotland, in Dubai.

The 16-member squad that played the Super50 Cup has been reduced to 14 members for the tri-series, with Sagar Patel and Jasdeep Singh the ones to miss out. The side won two out of their eight games in the tournament in Trinidad.

Ian Holland, Cameron Stevenson, Akshay Homraj and Nosthush Kenjige are in line to make their ODI debuts.

Speaking on the selection, USA Cricket chairman of selectors Ricardo Powell said, "There were some pleasing individual performances [in the Super50 Cup], and we were well led throughout by the leadership group.

"It was brilliant to finish with probably our most complete performance in the win over Guyana and we look forward to taking that momentum immediately into the matches in the UAE."
