With International Cricket Council (ICC) sanction out of the way, the world is coming to play at the 2022 US Open T20 tournament which is carded for December 5 to 13 at the Central Broward Regional Park in Fort Lauderdale.
At the final hour the ICC has granted Cricket Council USA (CCUSA) sanction for the tournament which means that cricket boards all over the world have been notified and they will be granting their players No Objection Certificates (NOC) to come and play.
This year 12 teams will be participating for a total of US$150,000 in prize money. The winner of this prestigious tournament will walk away with US$100,000. A number of stars from the West Indies, Pakistan and South Africa will be taking part in what promises to be the best of 14 editions so far.
President of CCUSA, Sofian Qamar is happy: “We have gotten the ICC sanction out of the way and this paves the way for an excellent tournament. It means that we have now ticked all the boxes and we are ready for the action to get underway.
“Teams will be arriving from around the 3rd of December and we have a dinner and welcome reception for them on the 4th at the venue.”
