Stuart Law played one Test and 54 one-day internationals for Australia

Former Australia batter Stuart Law has been appointed head coach of the USA men’s national team.

Law will be in charge for the 2024 T20 World Cup which is being held in the USA and West Indies in June.

The 55-year-old has previously coached Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, West Indies and Afghanistan.

“It is an exciting opportunity to join USA cricket at this time,” said Law, who also played county cricket for Essex and Lancashire.

“The USA are one of the strongest associate nations in the sport and I believe we can mould a formidable squad.

“The first task will be to prepare the team for a series against Bangladesh and then set our sights on our home World Cup, which will be huge.”

USA will host Bangladesh for three T20s on 21, 23 and 25 May in Houston, Texas.

They kick off the World Cup when they face Canada in the tournament’s opening match in Dallas on 2 June (01:30 BST).

They will also face Pakistan, India and Ireland in the initial group stage.
