Former New Zealand all-rounder Corey Anderson has been named captain of the Irving Mustangs for Minor League Cricket in the United States of America.

Anderson played 13 Tests, 49 ODIs and 31 T20Is between 2013 and 2018 before relocating to the US. He played for the Barbados Tridents in the 2020 Caribbean Premier League.

“Not only will I be playing for the Irving Mustang in Minor League Cricket this year, but I will also be leading them,” said Anderson.

“We have a lot of leaders in the side. It’s a really talented team. I’m super excited to get started in what should be a great competition over about 12 weeks.

“It’s exciting to have official Minor League Cricket in the USA. It’s going to be a great season with the Mustangs in Dallas and other states.”

Several South Africans will be involved in Minor League Cricket, including former Proteas players Dane Piedt and Rusty Theron.
