Batsmen Aditya Mishra and Clain Williams have been added to USA's squad for their three upcoming games against Jamaica at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, Florida. Their inclusion follows the withdrawal of two players, Sushil Nadkarni and Rashard Marshall, due to work commitments. However, both will return to represent USA in Americas Regional Division One Tournament in Bermuda at the end o the month.

"It's a great feeling to represent the national side, to get to play against a very good team," Mishra told "I think it's the result of all the effort that I'm putting in and I'm glad that I made it so I'm very happy."

Mishra, 28, had also represented Karnataka in India's domestic circuit in 2001-02.

Williams, 29, played just one game in the World Cricket League Division Five Tournament and was often used as a substitute fielder.

USA will play three games against Jamaica, including a 50-over game.
