Team USA Steps Onto “The Big Stage”

Thisis a very exciting month for US cricket and will see our National Team competing against the best nations involved in Associate cricket. Our National Men’s team captained by Neil McGarrell will compete in the ICC T20 World Cup Qualifier to be played in the UAE commencing November 15th. Our team represents a blend of experience and emerging talent that are hoping to give a good account of themselves in the T20 format of the game.

The Team leaves tonight and we know that there are some nerves from the players and coaches alike. Stepping onto the “big stage” of international cricket is daunting for anyone. For our team, it will be an especially large challenge, but I am confident of the determination and commitment that the team has to success. Our coaching staff have been working hard all year to arrive at an approach that they consider most likely to get the very best from Team USA.

Team USA will compete in Group A of the competition and come up against the likes of Ireland, Namibia, Italy and the UAE to name a few. This is a long tour for the team and it will require our players to perform at a consistently high level over at least 17 days. The schedule for the ICC T20Q is below;

This was the final match weekend of the season and both teams were playing for pride. Heading into the regular long Colorado winter on a winning note was on the minds of both teams and CCCC chose the attacking option of batting first when they won the toss.
