All 8 teams will have coaching and management roles in place for the National Championship, these will be announced in the coming days.


The 16 matches will all be played on turf wickets at the Prairie View Cricket Complex in Houston, Texas with the matches taking place between April 5th and 10th, with a training/practice day scheduled for the 4th and departure day on the 11th.

All matches start at 10am local time. (11am EST) 

Chair of the Cricket Committee and USA Cricket Board Member, Sushil Nadkarni, said, “On behalf of the Cricket Committee, national, and zonal selectors I would like to congratulate all the young men who have been selected for their Zonal squads. We are anticipating a very competitive first ever USA Cricket Men’s Under 19 National Championships next month in Texas. These pathway events and opportunities for our Men’s and Women’s cricketers at all levels are integral for the success of our National teams.

After such a long break with so little action on the field due to the pandemic, we are all hugely anticipating the return to cricket and giving our best young cricketers the opportunity to shine at a national level. All eight teams are scheduled to play four 50 Over matches on quality turf wickets in the same format as we will play in the ICC Regional Qualifier this summer, from which we are targeting qualification to the 2022 Men’s Under 19 World Cup.
