Cricket group's upheaval clouds Indiana tournament

Updated:

Concerns over the stability of the USA Cricket Association are clouding plans for Indianapolis to host the organization's national championship in August.

The Dubai-based International Cricket Council is set to vote in June on whether the cricket association should be suspended as an affiliate. The Florida-based association faces questions over high debt, the abrupt departure of its leader and a challenge from a rival group.

Indianapolis officials tell the Indianapolis Business Journal they are talking with both groups and are confident the August event will go on. But others say the association has lost a lot of members to the rival group and would lose $400,000 if it is suspended.

More than half of U.S. cricket leagues have spurned USACA and joined the American Cricket Federation.
