Why not congratulations to Mr Krsh Prashad? He has done more to uplift cricket in NY region than you and all your cronies at the USASCA. Krish, my friend, congratulations for an outstanding job and being a part of the US Cricket Hall of Fame. Your continued involvement in Cricket at all level in the USA is second to none. Good luck my friend

Mr Hall,

Please stop using your title as USACA media officer on this web-site. If you want to congratulate Mr. Hammie, please do it on your defunked USACA web site, and please also mention that you and your friends not only stop Mr.Reid's further involvement in any ICC events but thousand of young cricketers are also suffering from this current gang, which you are also a part of. What a friend!!!!!

In congratulating Hammie on his most recent achievement, let me say that it's a recognition that is well deserved.I have known Hammie ever since he migrated to the USA, and have had the distinct pleasure of playing with and against him during his playing days with Somerset Cricket Club. I have subsequently had the opportunity of seeing him in his current capacity as an umpire. In every instance, Hammie has displayed the type of professionalism and character which appears to be a rather scarce commodity in today's sporting arena.I applaud him for his many accomplishments, and hope that he will continue to impart his expertize for the betterment of the game wherever he is involved. Once again, congratulations my friend.

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Will Luke
Assistant editor Will opted against a lifetime of head-bangingly dull administration in the NHS, where he had served for two years. In 2005 came a break at Cricinfo where he slotted right in as a ferociously enthusiastic tea drinker and maker, with a penchant for using "frankly" and "marvellous". He also runs The Corridor, a cricket blog where he can be found ranting and raving about all things - some even involving the sport. He is a great-great nephew of Sir Jack Newman, the former Wellingtonian bowler who took two wickets at 127 apiece for New Zealand.
