Los Angeles, Dec 2 (IANS) USA Cricket on Monday announced a 14-member squad led by Saurabh Netravalkar for the World Cup League 2 ODI tri-series, also involving UAE and Scotland, in Dubai.

Ian Holland, Cameron Stevenson, Akshay Homraj and Nosthush Kenjige are in line to make their ODI debuts.
Speaking on the selection, USA Cricket chairman of selectors Ricardo Powell was quoted as saying by ICC: “There were some pleasing individual performances [in the Super50 Cup], and we were well led throughout by the leadership group.
