USA Cricket announces that Sanjay Krishnamurthi has been called into the United States Men’s National Team as a reserve player for the ongoing Tour of Oman with the return of the ICC Cricket World Cup League 2 getting underway next week in Muscat. Krishnamurthi has been brought into the squad as injury cover and arrived in Oman safely yesterday.
The 18 year old all-rounder was the leading wicket taker at the USA Cricket Men’s Under 19 National Championships in Texas in April and has been in fine form with bat and ball for the East Bay Blazers in the 2021 Toyota Minor League Cricket Championship presented by Sling TV.
