New York:  Jan 19, 2014

Legendary West Indies cricketers Clive Lloyd and Michael Holding are amongst cricket luminaries announced in a recently established Honorary Advisory Board of the American Cricket Federation (ACF).

Lloyd, a former West Indies captain and Wisden Cricketer of the Year, is the latest addition to the board which also comprised of Holding, Ian Chappell, Alvin Kallicharan, Damien Martyn, Nathan Bracken, Stuart MacGill and Niall O’Brien.

“As someone who has always taken a keen interest in the success of cricket in the United States, it gives me great pleasure to see the positive developments coming from the ACF. The ACF’s leadership and its member leagues point the way to a brighter future, and I am happy to give them my full support, and to join its Honorary Advisory Board,” said Lloyd on Saturday.

Under Lloyd’s leadership, the West Indies appeared in three consecutive World Cup finals, winning twice.

The ACF anticipates that Lloyd will bring this same winning attitude to the American cricket.

“The ACF couldn’t be more excited to have someone of Clive Lloyd’s stature on the Honorary Advisory Board,” said CEO Jamie Harrison.

“Clive is not only a match-winning international cricketer, but is also someone who regularly spends time in the United States and follows events here closely. His insights will be significant as we grow the game in the States.

“We are delighted to have the support of these legendary cricketers as we move forward with the ACF mission to develop the game in the United States. The breadth of knowledge and experience that these individuals bring to the table will be of great value to us as we chart the future of cricket in America, and we are thankful for their backing,” added Harrison.
