“There is no doubt that Ali Khan’s enforced absence is a big blow for us,” Michael Voss, USA Cricket selection chairman, said in a statement. “We wish him well with his ongoing recovery and look forward to him being able to get back into USA colors. However, the return of Ian Holland, who is available for the first time for the USA since the Americas T20 Qualifier in Antigua last November , is a huge boost for us.”
The other two changes in the ODI squad are a result of health and logistics.
USA have two warm-up matches against Scotland A on August 5 and August 7 before the first of four games on the tour, against UAE, on August 11 in Aberdeen.
USA squad: Monank Patel (capt, wk), 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.
