Cricket West Indies (CWI) president Dave Cameron has extended a warm welcome to USA Cricket after the organisation saw its application to join the ICC officially approved.

The USA, then under the control of the US Cricket Association (USACA), was one of the first ICC associate members.  However, the body was repeatedly suspended for violations of governance and expelled in June 2017.

USA Cricket was formed later in 2017 and facilitated the transition back to autonomous governance following more than three years of oversight from an ICC Americas caretaker administration.  In addition to being able to receive funding in accordance with the ICC development funding policy like other Associates, USA Cricket will also now be able to sanction domestic and international cricket in the United States.

"We welcome back USA Cricket to the international community. Cricket West Indies (CWI) stands ready to support efforts to move cricket forward,” Cameron said.

“We have done a tremendous amount of development in this region and we look forward to any reciprocal agreements and arrangements to enhance the current set of programs.”

The West Indies have already committed to playing at least T20Is per year in North America through to 2023.

    Rangpur Riders coach Tom Moody has warned that Windies stars batsman Chris Gayle is due a big performance with the bat, following a slow start to the Bangladesh Premier League (BPL).

    Life in the BPL this season has been a mighty struggle so far for the big left-hander.  In four games to date, Gayle the tournament’s record runs scorer has hit a total of 39 runs.  The player’s stay at the crease so far includes totals of one, eight, 23 and seven in the four games he’s played. 

    The total seems a far cry from the 485 runs Gayle racked up in 11 matches last season at an average of 53.88.  The performance left the West Indian as the tournament’s record runs scorer.  Moody has, however, backed the player to find form sooner rather than later.

    “I’m sure Chris is frustrated. Chris has got a record in T20 cricket that no one’s close to. He is also a very proud man and we know that a player of his quality is going to shine at any given moment,” Moody said.

    “Once Chris comes to the party with the bat, I feel for the side that’s gonna be in his way.”
