Team USA Arrives In Dubai
Ready To Rumble In The Desert

The USA Cricket Association’s senior men’s team arrived in the United Arab Emirates earlier today ready to do battle against Ireland, Scotland and Afghanistan in the Group A fixture of the 2010 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier Tournament.

Team USA at JFK Airport before departing for Dubai to participate in the ICC 2010 World Twenty20 Qualifier Tournament.

Led by Steve Massiah, one of the USA’s most prolific batsmen, the squad will be coached by former Guyana and West Indies batsman Clayton Lambert and managed by Imran Khan Suddahazai. New Zealand’s Dipak Patel is expected to join the USA team in the UAE, as part of the coaching consultant staff.

Team USA includes the hard-hitting Carl Wright and Sudesh Dhaniram, both of whom relish the shorter form of the game, and the experienced Twenty20 journeyman Lennox Cush, among the other talented players, all of whom are expected to give good accounts of themselves.

The USA is currently ranked at the bottom of the eight competing teams, but smart money suggests that that ranking will change at the conclusion of the tournament, as the USA seeks to qualify for the ICC 2010 World Twenty20, later this year in the West Indies.

The full squad is Timroy Allen, Imran Awan, Orlando Baker, Lennox Cush, Kevin Darlington, Sudesh Dhaniram, Glenmore Hall, Rashard Marshall, Steve Massiah, Sushil Nadkarni, Usman Shuja, Aditya Thyagarajan, Saurabh Verma, and Carl Wright.

The USA’s first match is against the number three ranked Scotland on Tuesday, February 9 at the Abu Dhabi Cricket Stadium, followed by Ireland seeded number one the next day, and the number six ranked Afghanistan on Thursday, February 11. The Group B teams include the Netherlands (2), Kenya (4), Canada (5), and hosts UAE ranked at number seven.

I wish our boys the best of luck. USA cricket is on the threshold of turning a new era. With the help we are now getting from New Zealand, and the hard work of Don Lockerbie. All we need to do now is to work towards the goal of uplifting the standard of cricket in this country. let us put aside our selfishness and needs to hold on to power. The game is greater than any one of us.
