ESPNcricinfo carried an interview today with Nabeel Ahmed, a candidate for president of USACA in the forthcoming elections.
The interview covered a variety of topics including Ahmed's assessment of USACA leadership and Don Lockerbie's performance. Noting that Don had not done enough for the grassroots, Ahmed observed that Lockerbie had great ideas and vision but funding was a major constraint.
USACA announced in November that it was negotiating a deal that could yield over $10 Million dollars for cricket in USA. Ahmed asserted his belief that the aforementioned deal would go through and added that it had his full support despite his differences with the leadership.
Calling Gladstone Dainty's leadership approach 'very casual', Ahmed said: "The leader's quality is to keep the board together and move it forward, but this has been clearly lacking."
Ahmed believed that he had the experience to take USA cricket to greater heights. "I have established a track record over the years in the cricket community nationally and internationally," Ahmed said. Emphasizing on a democratic principles of transparency and fairness, Nabeel said: "I want to change USACA from the way it has been run." He said that right people would have to be elected at every level for such a transformation.
