USA has played in an international cricket event with the test playing nations only once. That was in the Champions Trophy of 2004, where they lost both their games to Australia and New Zealand by huge margins to crash out of the tournament.
Since then, cricket in the USA has been restricted to the ICC Americas Trophy and the World Cricket League, but nothing with the big guys.
The 2009 edition of the ICC World T20 will be played in the West Indies, and there will be 12 teams participating in the tournament. Ten of them will be the top nine test playing nations and Zimbabwe, whereas the remaining two sides will be obtained from the ICC World T20 qualifiers.
There are eight teams that will play in the qualifiers, which will be played in UAE. This will include the six sides from the World Cricket League Division I apart from the hosts UAE and a wild card entrant – USA. The teams are Ireland, Canada, Kenya, the Netherlands, Afghanistan, Scotland, UAE, and USA. The qualifier was supposed to be held in October but has been postponed to early next year. READ MORE
