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.
It was the opening match of the 2013 World Cricket League Division 3 tournament in Bermuda, and young Steven Taylor was in some sort of mood! He smoked 162 from 102 balls including a dozen maximums.
Timroy Allen then chimed in with 67 not out from just 34 balls to help USA record an imposing 366/6 from their 50 overs.
In response Nepal never really threatened, with the U.S. bowlers taking wickets at regular intervals. In the end they prevailed by a mammoth 94 runs to get their campaign off to the perfect start.
Match scores: United States 366/6 (50/50 ov); Nepal 272/10 (49.5/50 ov)
