Corey Anderson to represent USA in Canada T20Is

Must Read

Former New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson has been selected in the squad of the United States of America (USA) on Friday for the home T20 series against Canada.

The 33-year-old all-rounder, who last played for New Zealand in 2018 before moving to the USA in 2020, is set to make his debut for his adopted country.

Corey Anderson became eligible to represent the USA in international cricket last year.

He played 13 Tests, 49 ODIs and 31 T20Is for New Zealand since making his debut in 2013, scoring over 2000 runs and taking 90 wickets across formats.

He was also part of New Zealand’s squad in the ICC World Cup 2015, where they reached the final for the first time, but lost to co-hosts Australia.

The five-match T20I series between the USA and Canada will be played in Houston.

Monank Patel will continue to lead the USA, while Aaron Jones will serve as vice-captain of the team.

“With the ICC T20 World Cup looming, this series holds immense significance for our team,” Monank said in a USA Cricket statement.

“We have some new players coming into the squad, and these games will help us get the right combinations and prepare well for the World Cup.”
