LAHORE,Oct 10 (APP)  United States of America Cricket Association (USACA) is keen to seek technical support from Pakistan Cricket Board (PCB) and other test playing countries boards to evolve a system to establish its cricket under a solid base at various levels to eventually attain test status. This was stated by Senior Vice President of USACA, Nabeel Ahmed, a Pakistani American in an interview with APP from Detriot, USA on Saturday.

He said USACA’s ultimate aim is to attain test status in next five to seven years and for that they need technical assistance from PCB and any full member board(s) to achieve their ultimate goal.
“All the full member board(s) are technically sound because of ample presence technical officials in the field of coaching, umpiring and other departments of the game and we will like to acquire their services to consolidate our existing cricket structure”, he said.
Nabeel, a former cricketer who remained involved in playing cricket in US and Canada, is the first ever Pakistani American to have that important slot in USACA.
He was elected for the second time last year which speaks volume of
his cricketing managerial skills as an administrator and organizer of the game at various levels.
He said in the past Great Lakes Cricket Conference,a league of which he is the Chairman, has hired the services of nearly six Indian umpires annually to stand in the league matches.Now they will also like to have Pakistani umpires to officiate in the matches there, besides hiring coaches from Pakistan to improve the coaching standards in USA.
Regarding structure of USA cricket, he said they have implemented their cricket development plan in schools to motivate the youth to take up cricket as a sport.
“Today our cricket activities at early level are being attended by 60 percent native students and 40 percent expatriates from different origins and we are confident that we will be making a rapid progress in next five years to give cricket the status of a major sport in USA “, said Nabeel who is also the Trustee of Detroit cricket club.
“ We are also considering to hire the services of first class players to feature in our league which will be started in a couple of years on the pattern of league in England and by implementing league system we will be having a strong base of the game”,he asserted.

USACA official said their cricket structure revolves around 8 regions and majority states of USA are divided on these regions and leagues are associated with regions. The leagues are featuring in cricket activities on regular basis.  Around 40,000 players are registered with USACA.
“PCB is always looking for neutral venues for their series with other countries, I think it is in the best interest of PCB to develop a relationship with USACA more that any other full member board. PCB had an opportunity to bring Pakistan New Zealand series to USA. However,in future USACA will welcome to hold such international events.
