Following a detailed public application and assessment process over recent months, ICC Americas is pleased to announce the USA Cricket National Advisory Groups.
As previously outlined, the primary role of these volunteer groups will be to advise on the national implementation of each strategic pillar that was identified as part of the development of the USA Cricket strategy framework. The pillars of the framework – which received broad support during the regional Town Hall meetings in November 2015 – include:
3. Fan and Market Development
4. A Sustainable Foundation
Due to the significant number of applications received, it was unfortunately not possible to accommodate everyone within the advisory groups. It is, however, felt that those chosen have relevant skills and experiences, and are also representative of the large and diverse USA cricket community.
|Participation||Performance||Fan & Market Development||Sustainable Foundation|
|Brian Walters||Usman Shuja||Masood Yunus||Jim Isch|
|Michael Voss||Aditya Mishra||Venu Palaparthi||Vince Adams|
|Malika Frank||Sushil Nadkarni||John Aaron||Jagan Jaganathan|
|Jamie Harrison||Ricardo Powell||Lorna Austin||Gordon Alfonso|
|Rizwan Mohammed||Mir Ali||Kevin Hussain||Patricia Whittaker|
|Priya Singh||Dean Riddle||Shiraz Najam|
|Kinjal Buch||Julie Abbott||Syed Shah|
|Jamie Lloyd||Priyantha Liyanage|
|Ajay Jhamb||Donna Bowes|
|Shelton Glasgow||Dr Linden Dodson|
All groups will be coordinated by the ICC, while in addition to those named, the groups may be supplemented from time to time with other people, including some not directly involved with the USA cricket community. This may include individuals from the international cricket community and/or the American sports community, including the US Olympic Committee.
The advisory role of each group will vary, and will be discussed with each group respectively. It should, however, be noted that the Sustainable Foundation group will have an important role to play in considering the development of a future constitution for USA cricket. Further information will be provided in this regard in due course.
We sincerely thank everyone that applied to part of this process, and in particular to those that were unsuccessful in being appointed to one of the National Advisory Groups, further opportunities to assist the development of cricket in the USA will be forthcoming and we therefore look forward to your ongoing support.
