New American governing body branded as USA Cricket
In one of the first tangible representations of progress in the reformation of American cricket governance in the wake of USACA's expulsion at the ICC annual conference in June, ICC Americas has announced that the new governing body being formed to replace USACA will be known as USA Cricket.
