USA Cricket has officially announced the appointment of former Australia international Stuart Law as their new head coach. While Law had a notable playing career with Australia, including participation in the 1996 ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup, he has gained recognition for his coaching expertise in recent years.

Having served as head coach for Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, West Indies, and more recently Afghanistan and the Bangladesh Under 19 team, Law brings a wealth of experience to his new role with the USA team. He is set to lead the side in the upcoming three-match T20I series against Bangladesh at home and will also guide them in co-hosting the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup alongside the West Indies in June.

Law expressed his excitement about the opportunity to work with USA Cricket, acknowledging the challenges ahead while also emphasizing the potential for growth and success. He sees USA as one of the strongest Associate nations in cricket and believes in building a formidable squad for future competitions, starting with the series against Bangladesh and aiming for success in the upcoming home World Cup.

Venu Pisike, Chairperson of USA Cricket, expressed confidence in Law’s ability to lead the team effectively, citing his extensive coaching experience and track record of developing international sides. Pisike believes that Law’s appointment will contribute to the team’s growth and success, and he looks forward to achieving significant milestones together.

USA Cricket’s schedule for the T20 World Cup includes matches against Canada, Pakistan, India, and Ireland in the group stage, with the opening match against Canada scheduled for June 1 in Texas. With Law at the helm, USA Cricket aims to make a strong impression in the tournament and continue its progress in the international cricketing arena.
