The International Cricketers Association is proud to announce an exciting, new partnership with 2XCricketUSA.
ICA will help to supply expertise and star quality through its impressive roster of international players to 2XCricketUSA latest twist on T20 cricket - a four innings match in which teams can be forced to follow-on.
So far, Saeed Ajmal, Fawad Alam and Asad Ali have signed up for the four-day tournament between 9-13 November 2016 in Houston, Texas.
Eight teams, a new spin on T20, and some of the world’s greatest cricketers playing in the USA for a U$60,000 prize. It doesn’t get much more exciting than that. So see you there.
The Kia Oval will be staging another high profile end of season charity match this year when a Surrey All-Stars side take on a Cricket United XI at the ground on Thursday September 22nd.
After last year’s event raised over £300,000 for Help for Heroes, this year’s game is set to the benefit the coalition of cricketing charities that come together every year as Cricket United – Chance to Shine, the PCA Benevolent Fund and the Lord’s Taverners.
With T20 tournaments flourishing round the world, ICA has enjoyed great success at finding franchises for talented cricketers. Many players on our roster have excelled in the Bangladesh Premier League and the Pakistan Super League. We also have good contacts with the Big Bash, the Caribbean Premier League and English counties.
With our extensive media contacts ICA can help cricketers gain commentary work with TV and radio companies. During the recent Asia Cup, we placed Misbah-ul-Haq and Saeed Ajmal with Gulf-based TenSports. Misbah also provided his excellent punditry for OSN during the World T20 tournament. Prior to that we placed Aamir Sohail at Sky Sports for their legendary “The Verdict,” a hard hitting programme about cricket.
ICA was on hand to help the famous Lord’s Taverners with their Wicketz programme in Luton last March. Centred around kids aged between 8-15, Wicketz seeks to provide underprivileged children with a sporting chance to enjoy cricket, the greatest game yet invented. With ICA’s Paul Nixon running the show, it was a pleasure to be involved.
ICA is involved with many fund-raising events. One of the most successful was the dinner in Luton held to develop a community centre there. We were able to provide Adbul Razzaq as a VIP guest, and everyone enjoyed a very successful evening. ICA can help organise any number of star cricketers to attend similar functions.
