The International Cricket Council (ICC) on March 12 snubbed to give recognition to two bilateral series being planned by the expelled United States of America Cricket Association (USACA) with India.
Last year, the USACA was expelled by the ICC in June, and recently announced plans to host the Indian women’s and men’s team for a bilateral T20I series each in April and May respectively.
ICC media released stated that “Both the series are unsanctioned events within the ICC’s regulatory framework and neither is recognized by the BCCI or ICC.”
ICC further added that the participants of the event may be subject to disciplinary action.
“In accordance with the ICC’s regulations on sanctioning events, no person affiliated to a National Cricket Federation is permitted to participate in any disapproved cricket.
“This prohibition applies to players, match officials, coaching or management staff affiliated to a National Cricket Federation or any team affiliated to a National Cricket Federation,” the release further added.
