Belize and USA will cross swords in the first match of the ICC Men's T20 World Cup Americas Qualifier 2021 at Coolidge Cricket Ground in Antigua.
The Belize National Cricket Association has been an affiliate member of the ICC since 1997 and in 2019 the side gained international status in T20 cricket. The side has played only one T20I so far against Mexico. Opener Aaron Muslar is one of the players to watch out for. He can even bowl his four-over quota.
The United States of America cricket team has been one of the most improved sides of late. Led by Monank Patel, they have been impressive. Though they won just two encounters in eight T20Is, the USA took the game deep in most of the encounters. With a lot of big games coming up, the USA will start the tournament as strong favorites.
