In a boost for the team’s bowling stocks, tearaway quick Ali Khan is fit for the tournament, shaking off a hamstring injury which kept him out of the Canada series.

The 33-year old, who has featured in several domestic leagues around the world, can also be spotted in the film clip for the official T20 World Cup anthem.

There are other familiar names in the mix, including Saurabh Netravalkar, the most capped USA player, Aaron Jones, and opener Steven Taylor, their highest run-scorer in international cricket.
