Martin Williamson

USA lost their opening match in the Moin-ud-Dowlah Gold Cup in Hyderabad. In a match affected by rain, USA made 122 in 44.1 overs and Karnataka eased to a seven-wicket win with 20 overs to spare.

The US side have been given a warm welcome in the city and when rain prevented training they invited one of their opponents to a game of football which the USA won 8-1.

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.
