Dubai: USA have booked their place in the U19 Men’s Cricket World Cup 2024 with an impressive display in the Americas Qualifiers.
They became the latest team to qualify for the event in Sri Lanka joining 15 others who have already sealed their spot.
The Qualifier campaign started with a comfortable win against Bermuda but a loss to Canada made things interesting.
But the USA bounced back in style, beating Bermuda once again and registering two wins against Argentina, including a score of 515 in one match, an ICC report said.
Their final match against Canada was affected by rain and reduced to 22 overs per side. The USA managed to restrict their opponents to 92/9 and chase it comfortably to ensure qualification for the World Cup.
Afghanistan, Australia, Bangladesh, England, India, Ireland, Pakistan, South Africa, Sri Lanka, the West Indies, and Zimbabwe have automatically qualified as the best-placed Full Member nations from the previous edition in 2022.
New Zealand from the East Asia-Pacific Qualifier, Nepal from the Asia Qualifier, Namibia from the Africa Qualifier and Scotland from the Europe Qualifiers are the others to make the tournament.
