Cricket Peru attends ICC Americas Region 2010 Development Forum

Tags:, , ,   Posted on: May 22nd, 2010

Delegates from ICC member countries in the Americas region met in Rio de Janeiro, May 1st – 2nd for the annual ICC Americas Development Forum.

Representatives from fifteen ICC Americas member countries, members of the ICC Americas Planning Committee, plus staff from ICC head office and ICC Americas office attended the two days of meetings. Cricket Peru was represented by Secretary, Miles Buesst.

The Forum is an opportunity for representatives to meet and discuss issues relating to the development of cricket within their own countries and the region as a whole. This was the first time Brazil had hosted the forum and it was an outstanding success.

After the meetings, awards were presented to the winners of the Americas 2009 Pepsi Development Award: sadly, Cricket Peru’s outstanding efforts in 2009 were not recognized!

Matt Featherstone, Brazil’s National Development Officer, did a great job organising the event. Delegates left very impressed with not only Rio de Janeiro but with Brazilian cricket in general.
