Stuart Law Roped in as New Head Coach of USA Men’s Cricket Team

Former Australian cricketer Stuart Law has joined the USA Cricket team as their new Men’s head coach ahead of their Bangladesh T20I series. Stuart was also a member of the Australian squad which finished as runners-up at the 1996 Cricket World Cup.

Before joining the USA Cricket team, Stuart Law coached Sri Lanka(2009), Bangladesh(2011-12), West Indies(2018-19) and Middlesex(2019-2021).

He was also named as interim head of Afghanistan in February 2022 and also served as head coach of the Bangladesh national under-19 cricket team in June 2022.

Stuart will join the USA team ahead of their three-match T20 International (T20I) series against Bangladesh scheduled next month just ahead of the ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Speaking on his appointment, Stuart Law said, “It is an exciting opportunity to join USA cricket at this time. The USA is one of the strongest Associate nations in the sport, and I believe that we can mold a formidable squad going ahead.

The first task will be to prepare the team for the series against Bangladesh and then set our sights on our home World Cup, which will be huge.”

The first match of the Bangladesh tour of USA 2024 will be played on May 20 while the second and third matches will be played on May 22 and 24 in Prairie View Cricket Complex, Houston.

Expressing his thoughts on the appointment, Venu Pisike, Chairman of USA Cricket said, “Stuart is one of the most accomplished coaches in the sport. He brings a lot of experience to USA Cricket with his varied assignments, particularly in developing international sides over the years.

His appointment will only help the team grow to their full potential. We are excited to have Stuart on board just before the World Cup and look forward to lots of success together. We wish him all the very best.”

He played one Test and 54 One Day Internationals (ODIs) for Australia. Law also captained Queensland to five Sheffield Shield titles and two one-day trophies, making him the most successful captain in Australian domestic cricket. He is also Queensland’s all-time leading run scorer in first-class cricket.
