US Cricket Association tries to block CPL games

The USA Cricket Association (USACA) has filed a lawsuit to stop next week's CPL games in Florida. The six games to be played at the Central Broward Regional Park in Lauderhill, are the first set of CPL games to be played in the US.

The USACA argues that proper procedures were not followed to organize the games. Managing Director Kenwyn Williams said the CPL organizers evaded the proper cricket governing body, which he claims to be USACA.

He also says it ruins the economic potential of US cricket. However, the ICC took control over cricketing matters in the USA after suspending the USACA  last year.

Mayor of Lauderhill Richard Kaplan says he is confident the lawsuit will not be heard and that the games will go ahead as planned.
