Days after the announcement of a Twenty20 competition in North East region, Cricket Council USA (CCUSA) unveiled what it described as "the richest Twenty20 tournament in the United States".
"We will give $100,000 prize money to the winner of the UST20 Cricket Tournament '09," said MAQ Qureshi, the chairman and chief executive of CCUSA, adding that the event was open to clubs from anywhere in the world. "I'm sure that this tournament will bring the best cricketers in the USA and abroad to display their cricket skills and of course the opportunity to win the prize money."
The event is scheduled to be held between April 4 and 9, 2009 in Florida. Matches will be staged in Lauderhill and Delray Beach.
CCUSA is one of several groups that have emerged in recent years to try to fill the void left by the inaction of the USA Cricket Association. Some, like Major League Cricket, have come and gone, and outsiders will be looking to see just how successful this event is.
