Former Proteas pacer Rusty Theron is all set to make his ODI debut for the USA and become third South African cricketer to play international cricket for two countries.

It is pertinent to mention here that the United States of America will be hosting official ODIs for the first time ever as PNG and Namibia will be touring that part of the world.

Rusty Theron played 4 ODIs and 9 T20Is for South Africa and has picked 12 wickets in either format. He has also previously been a part of Kings XI Punjab, Rajasthan Royals and the now-defunct Deccan Chargers in the Indian Premier League. He became eligible to play for USA after fulfilling the three-year residential criteria.

Earlier, Proteas’ Roelof van der Merwe (South Africa and the Netherlands) and Kepler Wessels (Australia and South Africa) to play for two different nations.
