USA Cricket and its American Cricket Enterprise (ACE) are currently on an international recruiting drive seeking new players for its recently launched Minor and Major Cricket League.

Since attaining One-Day International (ODI) status by placing fourth at the World Cricket League 2019 Division Two Tournament, USA Cricket is now on a global scouting campaign to gather resources towards increasing the sport’s popularity in the USA.

The Trinidad & Tobago Knight Riders Group majority owned by Bollywood superstar, Saha Rukh Khan, agreed to partner with AEC for a major long-term investment in US cricket.

A joint media release by Major Cricket League and Knight Riders said this long-term partnership will include financial investment and significant expertise to help ACE develop and launch Major League Cricket in the USA.

The West Indies and other international countries now risk of losing potential stars owing to attractive incentives by USA Cricket.

However, Cricket West Indies (CWI) President, Ricky Skerritt does not believe USA’s recent developments poses any risk towards the region’s budding cricketing prospects.
