Proper now, the concept of internet hosting an India vs Pak sport within the Americas is merely at a contemplation stage.

Who’s working cricket in USA?
As Timesof24 CricketNext had reported on March 17, lengthy earlier than being awarded the rights till the current day, there was no readability in anyway on who precisely is working the affairs of USA Cricket.
For the longest time now, both the ICC has banned the US cricket federation prior to now or has been helpless in permitting one other elected physique to maintain it. The ICC continues to run its affairs within the US by straight coordinating with its personal workers/consultants based mostly in another country. A lot in order that even American Cricket Enterprises (ACE), the industrial arm that’s placing T20 League cricket collectively within the US proper now, offers straight with the ICC.
CricketNext had despatched the ICC a questionnaire not too long ago however there was no official response. Sources within the ICC mentioned: “Martin Snedden, Sourav Ganguly and Ricky Skerritt have been a part of a Board sub-committee charged with reviewing all 28 proposals that have been submitted with ICC administration earlier than making a advice to the Board.

The transfer to offer a big-ticket match to a area which is clearly not ready but continues to lift query marks.
“What I can’t perceive is, why is the ICC so bent on “creating” a sport in a rustic that’s the main first-world nation on the planet and might afford to fend for itself? On prime of that, the US neither has an elected physique in place nor does it have an honest First Class tradition. So what’s the hurry to take the World Cup there? Why can’t the ICC put that a lot emphasis on creating cricket in Nepal or any of the African nations that really observe and play the game? One should ask the ICC to clarify their “love” for America,” say sources monitoring these developments.
It may possibly now even be confirmed that Ricky Skerritt, who performed a job within the USA being nominated as co-host for the 2024 T20 World Cup, will now get replaced within the ICC nominations committee by Oman’s Pankaj Khimji, who additionally occurs to be a member director of the Affiliate Nations within the governing physique.
