Default ICC expelled USA

ICC expelled USA from intercontinental Cup. Since there is no other international competition scheduled for ICC associate countries USA will not able to participate in any other international competition for at least two years.

ICC came to this decision due to internal conflict over control of cricket administration in USA. ICC said, "Regrettably, the game of cricket in the USA and the cricketers who seek to play cricket for USA at the highest level are again the losers."

Cricinfo described the situation as “an inglorious end to forty years of history, which began when USA became one of the first three countries to achieve the newly founded ICC Associate Member status” They added, “All that is over now, and what is left are the memories.”

This is a big blow for many Bangladeshi and other sub-continental players are settled in USA and were dreaming to play international cricket for USA.

Most of the USA players are aged around 35 to 40.. So there would be less future.. They should have bring young players...

Development of cricket in USA is very poor...

ICC could get more profit and money if USA had come as good cricket nations.. because of the advertisement and lots of companies in USA which would come for sponsorship...

But there is series politics going aroud which does not allowing development of cricket there

Its a catch-22 i guess, Unless ICC recognises USA cricket its not going to improve, Unless USA cricket mend its ways its not going to be a part of ICC.

believe me i have played in leagues here, there is no dearth of talent, infact USA got this rare blend of players from all over the world. It just needs a start, once it is a bit popular in US, it wont take long for USA to become the super-power of cricket with the facilities and the money they have. Who knows we might see a world-series cricket very soon .

I am sure USA will just add more colour and flavour to
the wonderful game of cricket .

Cheers !

Tests could never take off in America IMO, because of it's slowish pace.

ODI's may also be too slow, Twenty20 could take off though, if the hits are as big as Baseball I suppose.

The americans will never like cricket: they get bored for 90' draw in soccer... how can they appreciate 5-days draw in cricket?

This game is far too intelligent for them...!

(that's why they invented easier baseball )
