“There is no doubt that the enforced absence of Ali Khan is a major blow to us,” Michael Voss, president of the US cricket squad, said in a statement. “We wish him the best in his ongoing recovery and look forward to returning to the US colors. However, the return of Ian Holland, who will be available for the US for the first time since the Americas T20 Qualifier in Antigua last November, is a huge boost for us.”
The other two changes in the ODI squad are due to health and logistics.
The US has two warm-up games against Scotland A on August 5 and 7 before the first of four games on the tour, against the UAE, in Aberdeen on August 11.
American selection: Monank Patel (capt, week), Ian Holland, Aaron Jones, Nosthush Kenjige, Jaskaran Malhotra, Sushant Modani, Yasir Mohammad, Sai Mukkamalla, Saurabh Netravalkar, Nisarg Patel, Gajanand Singh, Jessy Singh, Cameron Stevenson, Steven Taylor.
