Take a look back at some significant USA Cricket moments on this day from down the years. We’ll be featuring the good, the bad, and the ugly, as well as prominent cricket people’s birthdays.
On this day 2 years ago, Alex Amsterdam scored a fluent 73 off 87 balls for the ICC Americas Combined team against Barbados in the opening match of the 2016 Nagico Super50 series in the West Indies.
Unfortunately, it was a bit of a lone hand with the bat, with the next highest score being 25, and the team only being able to post 183 as the innings was ended after strong spells of bowling from West Indies stars Sulieman Benn and Ashley Nurse leading the charge for Barbados.
A strong bowling effort from the ICC Americas XI wasn’t quite enough though as they went down by 4 wickets with 43 balls remaining.
Match Summary: ICC Americas 183 (Amsterdam 73, Kumar 25, Taylor 17, Benn 4 -40, Nurse 3-30. 43.1/50 ov); Barbados 184/6 (Carter 55 not out, Stoute 40, Patel 2-30, Allen 2-36. 42.5/50 ov) Barbados win by 4 Wickets
