USA announce Stuart Law as men’s head coach

Foundational Plan

USA Cricket announced Stuart Law as men’s head coach on Wednesday, ahead of next month’s three game T20i series against Bangladesh at Prairie View Cricket Complex.

Stuart Law began his coaching career in 2009, following a playing career spanning over 20 years, totaling 27,080 first class runs across 367 matches in England and Australia, including 79 centuries and an average of 50.52. Internationally, Law cracked Australia’s one day team in 1994, and went on to appear in 54 ODI through 1999. His lone test came in 1995 against Sri Lanka where he scored 54, not out, in his only innings.

Law’s first international appointment was as an assistant coach with Sri Lanka in 2009, which he followed in 2011 with a stint as Bangladesh head coach, and in 2017 as head coach of West indies Cricket. In 2019, Law left the West Indies to coach at Middlesex in England’s first class County Championship. Stints as interim head coach for Afghanistan and head coach of the Bangladesh U19 team preceded his hiring as USA Men’s Head Coach.

USA, set to co-host the T20 T20 World Cup in June, have been without a head coach since the departure of J Arun Kumar at the end of 2022. Law was present at Prairie View Cricket Club in a consultancy capacity for USA’s recent 4-0 series sweep of Canada, USA’s first men’s T20 cricket action since the summer of 2022.

USA will host Bangladesh for three T20i at Prairie View Cricket Complex from May 21-May 25, a week before they’re set to launch the 2024 ICC T20 Men’s World Cup against Canada at Grand Prairie Stadium.
