The USA may well be readmitted to the international fold after talks between the warring factions battling for control of the USA Cricket Association (USACA) in Washington over the weekend.
The USA was suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) in March after two rival groups claimed to be the rightful ones to run the game in the country. The ICC asked the West Indies Cricket Board (WICB) to intervene and try to find a solution. Only when the WICB reported back that the dispute had been settled would a readmission be considered.
Ken Gordon, the WICB president, met with the USA Cricket Association and representatives of the regional league presidents and the two sides agreed to revise the review of the constitution so that all stakeholders could be consulted. There were deep concerns at the short time given by the USACA for examination and debate of the previous new constitution before it had to be approved.
While specifics are hard to come by, a statement said that “the USACA has agreed to the proposals for the way forward made by the ICC and will move promptly to remove all impediments to the lifting of the suspension from Associate Membership imposed by that body”.More on:Cricket, icc, USA Cricket Association, USACA, WICB
