BCB Extends Condolences to Gladstone Brown’s Family & Friends
The Bermuda Cricket Board extends its deepest condolences to the family and friends of the late Gladstone Brown.
Brown was a great lover of cricket and was involved in many aspects of the sport serving on the Somers Isle Cricket League and the Bermuda Cricket Board in numerous capacities.
Brown was a seasoned player and stalwart of Devonshire Recreation Club. He represented Bermuda as Captain of the 1979 Cricket Team that played commendably in Bermuda’s first ICC Tournament recording three wins and one abandoned match.
As Captain, Brown led his team to finish top of their group that comprised of East Africa, Argentina, Papua New Guinea and Singapore. He also made many appearances for Somerset Cricket Club in Cup Match.
Lloyd Smith, President of the Bermuda Cricket Board said: “It is a very sad day as we mourn the passing of Gladstone ‘Sad’ Brown, a legend in the local cricket fraternity. Sad played a huge role in the development of our great sport, on the field as a player and off the field as an administrator. On behalf of the Bermuda Cricket Board I extend our sympathies to his family and friends. He will be sorely missed.”

In addition, there were hundreds of individuals who came to town hall meetings and roadshows to help shape the future for USA Cricket.
Other organizational highlights on the path to USA Cricket’s successful membership in the ICC include:
September, 2017 – USA Cricket’s logo & social identities released Fall/Winter, 2017 – Membership roadshows November, 2017 – Website at www.USACricket.org launched December, 2017 – USA Cricket’s Constitution approved February, 2018 – Membership opens March, 2018 – Historic Team USA Women’s tour to Australia and Rookie League program launched Spring/Summer, 2018 – Men’s, Women’s and U19 Combines Summer, 2018 – Eligible voter “Peer Review” July, 2018 – USA Cricket Board elections start August, 2018 – Full Board seated including three Independent Directors September, 2018 – Team USA Men win the T20 Sub Regional Qualifier October, 2018 – USA Cricket Board Chair elected November, 2018 – Team USA Men qualify for Division 2 & T20 Professional League RFP released January, 2019 – ICC Recognition
“This is truly an exciting day for USA Cricket and the entire U.S. cricket community,” said USA Cricket Board Chair Paraag Marathe. “On behalf of the Board of Directors, I’d like to thank the ICC and their 104 other members for their trust in us and we’d also like to recognize the work of all the volunteers and staff who have dedicated so much time and effort to reach this historic day. We realize the incredible responsibility that comes with this recognition and we are committed to working hard to be great stewards of the game both for the United States and global cricket.”
With RFP responses for the T20 Professional League due next week on January 18th, USA Cricket is excited to leverage this momentum to find ways to further raise cricket’s stature in the United States.
