USA Cricket could become even stronger in the very soon as England fast bowler Liam Plunkett says he would be open to playing for the United States in the future.
The 35-year-old, whose wife is American, has not played for England since winning the World Cup last summer and was not one of the 55 players asked to return to training last week.
"It would be nice be involved in some sort of cricket over there," he said.
"My kids might be American, so it would be quite cool to say to them that I played for England and the US."
The USA earned one-day international status at the beginning of 2019 and can already call upon former West Indies batsman Xavier Marshall, Hampshire all-rounder Ian Holland and ex-South Africa pace bowler Rusty Theron.
Plunkett, who says he is likely to settle in the US, would have to serve a three-year residency period in order to be eligible to play.
Last year Plunkett was cleared by the International Cricket Council following allegations he may have tampered with the ball during the second one-day international against Pakistan.
