Who is Monank Patel

Born in the Indian state of Gujarat in May 1993, the now American captain has played for Gujarat at the under-16 and under-19 level. During a conversation in 2022, he had told PTI that cricket is his full-time career. Among many players on the team who have Indian immigrant roots, Patel became one of the first to join the vast Gujarati population in the US in 2016, when he moved permanently to New Jersey. He got his green card several years ago in 2010.

The 2024 streak won't be the first challenge for him moving forward as team captain.

Patel shared his captaincy role with vice-captain Aaron Jones. , The same leadership hierarchy has been maintained for this year's Team USA team.
