ICC asked to back new US faction

Anyone who has followed US cricket in the last 18 months will be familiar with the shambles among those running the game there, with the USA Cricket Association slammed – and shunned – by the ICC and attempts to remove the executive quashed in court

Anyone who has followed US cricket in the last 18 months will be familiar with the shambles among those running the game there, with the USA Cricket Association slammed – and shunned – by the ICC and attempts to remove the executive quashed in court. Now Bernard Cameron, the man behind Major League Cricket, has written to the ICC requesting that his group be allowed to take control of the US game.

In his letter to the ICC, Cameron said:

"I remember the Gladstone Dainty [the USACA chairman] debacle, involving education, strategic development and promotion of cricket throughout the United States ten years ago. It certainly was a painful and bitter memory written in the annals of US cricket. Notwithstanding, that evil seems to befall us again and again."
