His exuberant celebrations make Jessy Singh hard to miss on the field for USA. Born in New York, Jessy's family moved back to Punjab when he was 3 before he returned to New Jersey at age 13. Jessy was one of the last players cut at trials for the 2011 U-19 World Cup qualifier squad that toured Ireland, but used that as motivation for developing into a medium-pace talent at the senior level.
One of his first highlights at senior level for USA was taking a hat-trick in the inaugural American Cricket Federation National Championship in Los Angeles in October 2012. After continuously plugging away in New Jersey league cricket as well as various private T20 competitions around the country, he made his USA debut at the 2015 ICC Americas Division One Twenty20 tournament in Indianapolis.
After bouncing in and out of the USA squad over the subsequent two years, he suffered torn ligaments in his right knee while fielding on the boundary in a warm-up match at Los Angeles in the spring of 2017 ahead of WCL Division Three in Uganda. The severity of the injury was not known at the time and Jessy played through pain in Uganda to take the match-clinching wicket against the hosts that helped USA avoid relegation. He had reconstructive knee surgery upon returning home and spent more than a year rehabilitating his knee before breaking back into the USA squad for the CWI Super50 tournament at Barbados in October 2018.
