USA Cricket Team Players List and Salary – The USA team was formerly organized by the United States of America Cricket Association (USACA), which became an associate member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in 1965.

USA Cricket Team History

In June 2017, the USACA was expelled by the ICC due to governance and financing issues, with the U.S. team being temporarily overseen by ICC Americas until a new sanctioning body was established.

In January 2019, a new sanctioning body known as USA Cricket was officially admitted by the ICC as a new associate member. The United States made its international tournament debut at the 1979 ICC Trophy in England.

In April 2018, the ICC decided to grant full Twenty20 International (T20I) status to all its members. Therefore, all Twenty20 matches played between the United States and other ICC members after January 1, 2019, are a full T20I.

USA finished sixth in the 2001 ICC Trophy, their best performance to date. They have also played in every edition of the ICC Americas Championship, winning in 2002.

In 2004, the United States cricket team played a first-class match as part of the first ICC Intercontinental Cup. The matches against Canada and Bermuda were the first in many years.

The team won the ICC 6 Nations Challenge beating Scotland, Namibia, the Netherlands, and the UAE on net run rate by 0.028 of a run. Winning the ICC Six Nations meant that they qualified for the ICC Champions Trophy 2004 in England.

Here the USA played their first ever One Day International match against New Zealand at The Oval on September 10, 2004
