USA vs Canada: Who is Aaron Jones? Player of the Match in T20 World Cup opener

In USA vs Canada T20 World Cup opener, Aaron Jones played a scintillating knock of 94 runs in just 40 deliveries.

T20 World Cup: United States of America (USA) won the opening game of the T20 World Cup played between USA vs Canada. USA batter Aaron Jones played a scintillating knock of 94 runs in just 40 deliveries to help his side gain victory. Thanks to his antics with the bat, Aaron Jones was also adjudged player of the match in the USA vs Canada T20 World Cup opener.

Who is Aaron Jones?

Born in Queens, New York to Barbadian parents on October 19th, 1994, the right-handed batter likely targeted playing for the West Indies. He debuted for Combined Campuses in 2016 in the List A format and made his first appearance in first-class cricket for Barbados in 2017.

The debut for the United States came in 2018 in the form of an ODI and received his maiden T20I cap for them a year later. The 29-year-old’s highest of 123 not out in ODIs came against Scotland in August 2022, while the unbeaten 94 is his best in the shortest format.

The USA batter also joined the Rangpur Riders ahead of the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL) 2023 edition but did not get a game and suffered the same fate during his stay in Seattle Orcas in the inaugural season of Major League Cricket (MLC) in 2023. Given his aggressive template of batting, Aaron Jones is expected to be a regular member in the T20 franchises across the world soon including the Indian Premier League.
