Team USA on Wednesday, 21st August 2019 announced a strong squad for their chance at creating history as they look to qualify for the T20 World Cup to be held next year in Australia.

The USA Women’s Head Coach, Julia Price, is looking forward to the challenge in Scotland, “I’m very pleased with the build-up that we’ve had into this ICC Global Qualifier, after a really high-quality training camp the way we played in our 3-0 series win over Canada in Florida showed what we can do. Getting a full week in advance in the UK to adjust to local conditions is absolutely crucial and with two good matches lined up against the MCC and Essex it means we will travel to Scotland with perfect preparations. We have had a strong group focus on this tournament for more than 6 months now and we want to go and show our skills on the Global stage.”
