Adding yet one more event to the ever-expanding program of US junior cricket, an official team representing Australia is to make their first ever tour of the USA in late August.

The USA tour is a stopover for the Aussies, on their way back from the West Indies after a series of matches with their counterparts in the Caribbean. Several matches are scheduled with the top US junior teams in California, on a tight and demanding schedule. The event should also serve to verify the abilities of US youth cricketers when faced with serious international competition, and this would as a benchmark for the future.
