Within the past 48 hours I have received over 39 phone calls from various parts of the USA. The gist of the calls was that it was time for the USACA to “go”. Most of my callers are of the opinion that in view of the latest USACA Board declaration that only 15 leagues are eligible to vote in the coming elections, the remaining 32 leagues, which have their franchise voting rights taken away, should get together and form an alternate cricket body to  represent cricket in this country.

They reasoned that once a case is presented to the ICC, that body would have to give serious thought as to which of the two cricket bodies in the USA best represent the majority of the leagues. With the “bad” vibes that the present USACA Board is sending ICC with its erratic, dysfunctional and poor governance, and with USACA now representing a minority of leagues, some substantial action would be taken by the ICC.

I spoke at length with my callers. I felt that it is time for the birth of the UNITED STATES OF AMERICA CRICKET COUNCIL (USACC) or some similar named body representing cricket at the international level. But to get our cricket back on track, we, the cricket holders must fight a unified battle. The people we elected to administer our cricket have earned an “F” grade, and you know what, I think they are proud of it.

If we want to develop cricket in this country we must have a strong and vibrant national body, one that would govern with honesty and integrity. Send me your comments at Ssamrajs@verizon.net or reply to this mini article.

    It take a man to do what you just mentioned let me see how many they have.

  2. Bobie, we have people like yourself and Dr. Atul who are more that capable. Additionally, we have numerous whose voices that have been stifled by the USACA Board. It would take a concerted effort by all who want to see changes, for the better, to effect this change. A networking co. has offered their help in reaching out to the public. I am in conversation with the principal at that co. We hope to get more support from fair minded people, and within this new week, or cricket in this country will continue to languish.
    We do not want this now: do we!

    Knowing Dainty’s dark 20+ history with USACA and knows how he operate, I predict that Dainty & his gang will take a “U” turn very soon, they will try their best to fool the upset USACA membership by allowing few more leagues to take part in the USACA election to farther divide the membership. Obesely they don’t want 401K to STOP!!!

    NOW the million dollar question is WHO WILL TAKE THE BONE? or WHO WILL STAND UP & DO THE RIGHT THING BY CLEANING THE MESS ONCE IN FOR ALL!!!

    GO; USACC or USACB or CRICKET USA!!!!
