United States Squad For World T20 Cup 2024

The United States squad for the upcoming World T20 Cup has been named. For the first time in the history of the tournament, the USA will not only play but also co-host the event. As they are one of the hosts, they automatically qualified for the tournament. Apart from the World T20 Cup, they have played only in one global event, i.e Global Champions League 2004.

Meanwhile, it is expected that the US might beat a higher-ranked team. They have been slated in the Group A with 2007 and 2009 winners, India and Pakistan respectively. Apart from this, the home side will also compete with debutants, Canada. The US will play at home in the first round.
