Typical USACA, they make a bold statement and then there is nothing, no information on the reported marketing deal in any forum. I have no doubt that when Dainty releases any information it will be short on detail. And an important question is one of conflict of interest - do any of the USACA executive have a vested interest in the agreement?

USACA will never get things sorted. They have screwed so much up that all this will do is give them more money to waste. It needs a new bunch of guys running the show not the same wasters with more dollars.

This has to be good for the US and might be the last chance to get things sorted in the organization

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.
