Kamau Leverock joins Titans for US Cricket Open
Kamau Leverock will have the opportunity to again showcase his talent in US Open cricket after being signed as part of the Titans squad.
The International Cricket Council approved Twenty20 franchise league, which is organised by Cricket Council USA, features a total of 12 teams battling it out for the $150,000 prize money over nine days of competition at the Central Broward Regional Park in Fort Lauderdale, starting on Wednesday.
As well as the Bermuda captain, players from countries including the United Arab Emirates, Scotland, Netherlands, Nepal, Namibia, Oman, Malyasia, Germany, Canada and Spain were registered for the draft to be signed by Clarion County Asia United, Dallas All Stars, UMMC Knight Riders, CVUCC, SAMP Army, Stallions, Masters and Virginia Bears, as well as Titans.
“The US Open T20 remains the most popular league in North America and we are always looking at ways of improving it,” said Mahammad Qureshi, of CCUSA. “We are looking forward to great cricket from the 12 teams we have chosen.”
This will be Leverock’s second stint playing in the tournament, having previously played for Florida Scorpions alongside compatriot Delray Rawlins last year, in which they helped the team reach the semi-finals before suffering a crushing eight-wicket defeat against US All Stars.
Earlier this year, Leverock also represented Scorpions in the Alberta Cricket Association’s Champions Cricket Open.
