Internal Mess In USA Cricket
There has been complete confusion on who is in charge of USA Cricket’s operations. News18 CricketNext reported on March 17, long before the rights were granted. The US Cricket Federation has either been banned by the ICC in the past or has been allowed to continue by another elected body for a very long time. The ICC still manages its business in the US by working closely with its staff members and consultants stationed abroad.
The commercial arm of American Cricket Enterprises (ACE), which is currently organizing the T20 League cricket in the US. Even deals directly with the ICC due to this.
ICC Nominations Committee
Sources in the ICC said
“Martin Snedden, Sourav Ganguly, and Ricky Skerritt were part of a Board sub-committee charged with reviewing all 28 proposals submitted with ICC management before making a recommendation to the Board. As part of the process, the ICC wanted to take World Cups to new territories and well-established markets to help deliver on the overarching strategic aim of growing the game. All bids provided extensive detail as part of the process”.
CricketNext had sent the ICC a questionnaire recently, but there was no official response.
Also, it is now official that Oman’s Pankaj Khimji, a member director of the Associate Nations in the governing body, will take Ricky Skerritt’s spot in the ICC nominations committee. Ricky Skerritt was instrumental in the USA’s candidacy as co-host for the 2024 T20 World Cup.
