D-Day looms in the USA

Martin Williamson

An end in sight for the shambles that has been blighting the USA Cricket Association for more than a year, or another false dawn? Cricinfo reveals that finally there will be an Extraordinary General Meeting in Dallas on December 10.

It is unclear how many members of the association will actually attend what could be a lively meeting, assuming that the officers are willing to answer questions from the floor and not fall back behind the legal agreement.

People from across the country have to attend as this could be one of the last chances they have to be heard and make a difference before US cricket, already something of a pariah, is irreparably damaged.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Martin Williamson
Executive editor Martin Williamson joined the Wisden website in its planning stages in 2001 after failing to make his millions in the internet boom when managing editor of Sportal. Before that he was in charge of Sky Sports Online and helped launch and run Sky News Online. With a preference for all things old (except his wife and children), he has recently confounded colleagues by displaying an uncharacteristic fondness for Twenty20 cricket. His enthusiasm for the game is sadly not matched by his ability, but he remains convinced that he might be a late developer and perseveres in the hope of an England call-up with his middle-order batting and non-spinning offbreaks. He is now managing editor of ESPN EMEA Digital Group as well as his Cricinfo responsibilities.
