London:The International Cricket Council (ICC) said it would not allow any official from America to attend the forthcoming ICC meetings due to the unresolved governance dispute within the United States of America Cricket Association (USACA).

ICC chief executive Malcolm Speed wrote to the cricket officials in the US that the step was taken since "ICC is unable to come to a clear view as to which party should be recognised as the legitimate governor of USACA."

ICC said the unresolved governance dispute within the USACA arose out of elections that were conducted in the US in March this year.

"Regrettably, despite having had three months in which to resolve these matters, you seem to be no closer to doing so," Speed wrote.

"The result of this is that, at this stage, ICC does not intend to recognise any of the current competing parties as being in undisputed control of USACA."

""In the circumstances, unless the matter can be resolved by mutual agreement in the meantime, we do not intend to recognise any party for the forthcoming ICC meetings."

If the matter is not resolved in time the USACA will miss out on the opportunity to be represented at the ICC associates meeting on June 26 and the ICC annual conference on June 28.
