USA scores another own goal
So low is the USA Cricket Association's standing in world cricket - this was the organisation barred from the last ICC AGM in London - that you woukd think they would do all they could to show that they are now on the ball. Not so. At the weekend they held a meeting in Dallas which should have shown that all disputes are a thing of the past. The problem is ... nobody turned up.
The attendance was so poor that there were not enough people present to constitute a forum, and furthermore, only six of the 12 USACA directors turned up, so it was not even possible to hold a board meeting.
