USA have named a 15-member squad led by Monank Patel for the 2023 Cricket World Cup Qualifier in Zimbabwe that begins next month.
After securing the top position in the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup Qualifier Playoff, USA will head to Zimbabwe next month to look to wrestle their way to India for the ICC Men's Cricket World Cup later in the year.
Led by Monank Patel, and sporting some familiar names across departments, USA have named 15 players that will travel to Zimbabwe for the tournament that begins on 18 June.
28-year-old Aaron Jones will act as deputy to Patel while the squad also features the stars from the Qualifier Playoff. Ali Khan, who led the wicket-taking chart with 16 scalps, including a stunning haul of 7/42 in the key clash against Jersey, could miss the first two matches of the Cricket World Cup Qualifier.
The pacer had received a demerit point in the final game at the Qualifier Playoff against Jersey, leading to four accumulated demerit points, which meant that he would miss the next two games – either T20I or ODI, whichever came first – that USA play.
USA are placed alongside West Indies, Zimbabwe, Netherlands and Nepal in Group A.
USA Squad: Monank Patel (c), Aaron Jones (vc), Abhishek Paradkar, Ali Khan, Gajanand Singh, Jasdeep Singh, Kyle Philip, Nisarg Patel, Nostush Kenjige, Saiteja Mukkamalla, Saurabh Netravalkar, Shayan Jahangir, Steven Taylor, Sushant Modani, Usman Rafiq
