The matches against Holland, Nepal, Oman, the United Arab Emirates and Scotland were one of three changes the team played in Texas in May–June, effectively replacing Ali Khan, who broke his right arm. He is recovering after the bone surgery.

But, after not being part of any squad for the men’s hundred, he has made himself available, opting to bypass two matches in the Royal London One-Day Cup. Matches in Scotland will run from 10 August to 17 August.

“There is no doubt that Ali Khan’s absence is a major blow to us,” USA Cricket Selection President Michael Voss said in a statement. “We wish him well and hope to be able to return to the USA colours. However, the return of Ian Holland, who was available for USA for the first time since the Americas T20 Qualifier in Antigua last November It’s a big boost for us.”

The other two changes in the ODI squad are a result of health and logistics.

The United States has two practice matches against the United Arab Emirates in Aberdeen on 11 August, before the first of four matches on the tour on 5 August and 7 August against Scotland A.
