In a huge development for USA Cricket, the International Cricket Council has confirmed that the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 will happen in America and West Indies. Since they are the co-hosts of the mega event, both USA and West Indies have automatically qualified for the mega event.
Here’s what the International Cricket Council wrote in the press release to confirm the big news:
“In June 2024, the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup will go somewhere it has never been before, with USA hosting the event alongside the West Indies, which staged the tournament in 2010.”
Many fans would know that some international players have shifted to the USA to advance their careers. Here’s a list of five popular international stars from other nations who may represent America in ICC T20 WC 2024.
1. Unmukt Chand may play for USA in T20 World Cup 2024
Former India U-19 cricket team skipper Unmukt Chand retired from Indian cricket last year. He has moved to the USA and is likely to play for America when the country hosts the mega T20 event in 2024.
2. Corey Anderson may represent USA in T20 World Cup 2024
Corey Anderson has played international cricket for New Zealand in the past. But in 2024, fans may see him in the USA jersey at the T20 WC.
3. Sami Aslam
Former Pakistan opener Sami Aslam left his nation due to a lack of opportunities. He is in the USA now, and may play for the country in the 2024 T20 WC.
4. Juan Theron
Former South African fast bowler Juan Theron has already made his debut for America. It should not be a surprise if he is named in the USA team for that mega event.
5. Liam Plunkett
2019 World Cup winner Liam Plunkett is another pacer who may turn up for America in the T20 World Cup scheduled to happen two years later. Thus, USA will have a lot of international experience.
