We Are USA Cricket
USA Cricket is the sole governing body for cricket in the USA and is responsible under International Cricket Council (ICC) Regulations for approving domestic cricket played in the United States.

Subject to some exceptions, it is the exclusive right and responsibility of USA Cricket to retain control over cricket matches and events played within the USA (‘Domestic Cricket’), and therefore to determine whether or not such Domestic Cricket should be approved or not. 

The new USA Cricket Regulations for the Approval of Domestic Cricket (found here) adopt the ICC Regulations (which apply equally to men’s, women’s and junior cricket) to establish a mechanism by which Domestic Cricket played in the USA is to be officially approved and also to ensure the uniform application of rules protecting the sport and its participants.

USA Cricket allow automatic approvals for certain cricket conducted under the auspices of its registered members and this accounts for the majority of cricket played in the USA. Cricket that does not fit within that category needs to be approved by application to the Cricket Operations Director at [email protected]. Some cricket, usually due to involving players from other members, may also need to be approved by ICC.

Where cricket is ‘approved’, in line with the ICC’s regulations, participants are free to be involved with it.  Where cricket is not so ‘approved’, it automatically becomes ‘disapproved’ cricket and participants are prohibited from being associated with it. 


USA Cricket maintains a register of all approved Domestic Cricket, including automatic approvals through its members, and this is summarized in the table below. In the case of approvals through application, USA Cricket will also provide public advice to that effect.
