USA Cricket and its Board of Directors and staff would like to recognize the efforts of the ICC Americas Regional office staff, alongside the hosts, Bermuda Cricket Board in putting together an excellent ICC Men’s T20 World Cup Americas Final 2019 tournament.
The teams from Canada, Bermuda, Cayman Islands and the United States all represented their countries with pride and respect both on and off the field of play. USA Cricket would also like to congratulate the teams from both Canada and Bermuda for their successful qualification and wish them the best of luck at the Global T20 World Cup Qualifier in the UAE this October.
USA finished third in the four-team event, missing out on the two qualification places available despite two wins from their six matches, defeat to hosts Bermuda in the fourth-round by 4 Wickets cost Team USA the chance of qualification.
“Although we are disappointed in our own performance, we’d like to congratulate all the countries and the Americas Regional Office staff for an outstanding event,” said USA Cricket CEO Iain Higgins. “We will reflect carefully on how and why we fell short of our targets at this event and we now have an opportunity to put together a longer-term high performance program for the men’s national squad that will help the team to return better prepared during the next T20 World Cup cycle.”
