Curiously, Oman and Nepal were USA’s enemies in the group’s last worldwide task where they returned winless in each of the four installations in a tri-series in Nepal.
USA have rung in six changes to the crew that played in Nepal. Of course opener Xavier Marshall, wicket keeping batsman Akshay Homraj and veteran leg spinner Timil Patel have been named as the losses as an aftermath of the notorious visit. Marshall survived by luck alone subsequent to scoring at 17.5 in his last 12 ODIs since September 2019 and disappointed in the training games in Houston and Los Angeles this year. Homraj also was shown the entryway in the wake of being USA’s best option manager in the previous three visits. While being good behind the stumps, he neglected to move forward with the bat with only 212 runs in 11 innings up until this point. Patel, who has been irregularly utilized after the USA got their ODI status has been chopped out after he could oversee only six wickets in seven ODIs. Ian Holland decided to respect his Hampshire responsibilities while quick bowlers Cameron Stevenson and Rusty Theron quit because of individual reasons.
By and by, the losses and individual nonattendances have constrained the selectors to name four uncapped players and hand rebounds to revived Jaskaran Malhotra and an in-structure Jasdeep Singh. Among the four new faces is previous Guyana batsman Gajanand Singh. Turning 34 in a few months, Singh additionally showed up for the Guyana Amazon Warriors in CPL 2017.

He was under the tutelage of the current USA mentor for some time in India and proceeded to address Hyderabad U16s in the BCCI age bunch competition. He presently divides his time between the US and the UK where he plays for Leeds Bradford MCCU. Modani, initially from Pune, India shockingly stretched out beyond youths like Sanjay Krishnamurthy and Sai Teja Mukkamalla who have been in prime structure in the continuous small time cricket and regulars in the senior group camps. The 28-year-old Rikhi who hails from Guyana yet presently based out of New Jersey is a productive scorer in the tri-state region associations.
