The USA vs Canada T20 series 2024 will start in Houston, Texas on Sunday, April 7. 

Organised by the USA Cricket (USAC), the United States national cricket team will host Canada in a five-match T20 international series in order to prepare for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024 in the West Indies and the United States in June.

As per the schedule, all five T20I matches will be played at the Prairie View Cricket Complex in Houston on April 7, 9, 10, 12 and 13.

Ahead of the series, USA have announced their 15-member squad to be led by wicketkeeper-batter Monank Patel.

Former New Zealand international cricketer Corey Anderson has been included in USA’s squad for the upcoming five-match T20I series.

After migrating to the United States following the announcement of Major League Cricket (MLC), Anderson is now eligible to play for the USA.

The southpaw has been in scintillating form in Minor League Cricket (MiLC), having scored more than 900 runs in 28 innings at a strike rate of 146.

Former India U19 cricketer Harmeet Singh, ex-Canada skipper Nitish Kumar and former South African domestic stars Andries Gous and Shadley Van Schalkwyk have also been named in USA’s squad.

Ex-U19 World Cup-winning captain Unmukt Chand was the notable exclusion from the squad.

On the other hand, the Saad bin Zafar-led Canada national cricket team last played in the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2 in Dubai.

Canada have been in impressive form, having won all their four matches in the ongoing ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup League 2.
