A group of 39 players, mostly Indian Americans, have been invited by USA Cricket’s Selection Panel to attend the final men’s selection camp in Houston, Texas.

According to USA Cricket’s website, all 39 of the players have demonstrated the requisite skills, work ethic and commitment to the selection process as well as the desired player traits as outlined in the USA Cricket Selection Policy and will help the team win the World Cricket League Championship and the World T20 qualification.

In acknowledgement of the tremendous talent observed at the youth level around the country, six youth have also been invited to attend the camp and they will work with the national coaches alongside the full men’s squad.

“This set of Combines has been hugely rewarding, having uncovered many new faces in each city across the country. The upcoming week in Houston will be vitally important as we work hard to stake our claim on the international stage. It was also exciting to see how well the U.S. cricket community embraced these USA Cricket Combines,” said Ricardo Powell, the Chairman of Selectors.

Players will arrive in Houston for a series of T20 and 50-over matches, which are to be hosted at the Moosa Cricket Stadium in Pearland, Texas.
