World Cup finalist named in USA T20 World Cup 2024 squad

Hosts USA have named their 15-member squad for the ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2024

Former New Zealand player and 2015 ICC Men's Cricket World Cup finalist Corey Anderson has been named in USA's squad for the ICC Men's 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 series against Canada, has also been included in the squad.
