Jessy Singh, Sagar Patel dropped from USA squad for UAE tour

USA's selectors have kept faith with the side's touring party from Trinidad this past month by picking a largely unchanged 14-man squad for the ODI tour of the UAE. Medium-pacer Jessy Singh and opening batsman Sagar Patel have been dropped from the 16-man group that was selected for the CWI Super50. USA had won two games against Guyana and eventual champions West Indies Emerging team.

Jessy took 4 for 51 in his most recent ODI against Namibia on September 20 in Florida. But has struggled to maintain consistency ever since he was one of five players handed a 12-month central contract by USA Cricket in July. He managed just three wickets in four matches during the Super50 tour of Trinidad.

USA debutants Cameron Stevenson and Ian Holland put pressure on Jessy's place during that tour. Stevenson was clocked at a faster pace than Jessy, consistently above 80 mph, while taking seven wickets in five matches including a Man of the Match performance in USA's 43-run win over West Indies Emerging team.

Holland showcased his allround skills in USA's eight-run win over Guyana with an unbeaten 59 off 37 balls and contributed tidy middle-over spells as well as cagey variations at the death.

Sagar, 22, struggled in his first appearance for USA in nearly two years. He managed just 34 runs in three innings on tour before being dropped for USA's final three matches.

USA will play two ODIs each against UAE and Scotland. One match against each opponent will be played in Sharjah before the second round of fixtures takes place at the ICC Academy in Dubai. USA will begin the tour with a warm-up fixture against Scotland on December 6 before their first ODI against UAE on December 8.

Squad: Saurabh Netravalkar (capt), Karima Gore, Ian Holland, Akshay Homraj (wk), Elmore Hutchinson, Aaron Jones, Nosthush Kenjige, Xavier Marshall, Monank Patel, Nisarg Patel, Timil Patel, Cameron Stevenson, Steven Taylor, Rusty Theron.
