Former New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson has been confirmed in the United States squad for June's T20 World Cup.

The 33-year-old made his debut for the USA last month, having qualified for the World Cup co-hosts after emigrating to the country.


Anderson played 93 times for New Zealand between 2012 and 2018.

He played the ODI World Cup (in 2015) and the T20 World Cup (in 2014 and 2016) for the Black Caps and is one of 19 players to have represented two countries in men's T20 cricket.

Anderson is arguably most famous for his 2014 innings when he set what was then the world record for the fastest ODI hundred with a 36-ball blitzkrieg against West Indies in Queenstown.

The USA are in a group with India, Pakistan, Ireland and Canada at the World Cup - a tournament which begins with a meeting with their North America neighbours on 1 June.

New York, Dallas and Lauderhil, Florida will host games in the United States with the other venues in the Caribbean.
