- USA to represent the Americas Region in the 2024 ICC Women’s T20 World Cup Global Qualifier
- USA dominated the Americas event with a clean sweep victory, 6-0.
USA Women booked their spot in next year’s Women’s World Cup Global Qualifier with convincing wins in all 6 matches at the Americas Regional Qualifier at Woodley Park Cricket Complex, Van Nuys, California.
Led by Interim Coach Charlotte Dickenson, Team USA progressed through the tournament comfortably and finished with maximum points and a net run rate of 2.67.
A total of three USA players scored four half-centuries in the tournament. Under 19 T20 World Cup players Disha Dhingra (63*, 58) and Anika Kolan (54*) registered their first career T20I half-centuries while Captain Sindhu Sriharsha registered her 3rd career T20I half-century (52*).
In addition to Dhingra and Kolan, more players from this year’s Under 19 T20 World Cup put in strong performances in this tournament. Isani Vaghela walked away with the best bowler of the tournament award with 15 wickets at an economy rate of 2.83 which included two 4-wicket hauls. Ritu Singh played the most destructive innings in Team USA women’s history with 37 runs off 16 balls at a 231.25 strike rate.
Going into the final day’s play, USA Cricket’s strong net run rate position atop the table meant that Canada had an improbable chance of advancing to the next stage even with a win over USA. At the end, USA proved too much for Canada with Dhingra’s 58 runs off 50 balls and Vaghela’s 4-wicket haul leading their team to a 30-run win.
Interim Head Coach, Charlotte Dickenson said, “Congratulations to the team for winning this important event. We developed clear plans in our camp leading into this event and I am really pleased to see the players worked on those goals and got better with each game. We have a great bunch of players who can do great things for the USA in the future and I wish them all the best in their next phase.”
USA will join other Regional Qualifier winners in the T20 Global Qualifier at a place and date to be determined in 2024.
