Caribbean Premier League cricket fans in North America will still be able to watch matches at the Central Broward Regional Park in Florida this summer despite the suspension of the United States Cricket Association.

The International Cricket Council gave the CPL organisers permission to stage matches at the ground which hosted six matches for the first time last year.

The stadium in Lauderhill, Florida, which is the only stadium in the USA to have one day international and T20 certification, will host four matches in August.

When matches were staged at the venue last June they were virtually sold out with spectators travelling from as far away as New York and Toronto.

The ICC suspended USACA in 2015 over significant concerns and recently proposed a new constitution which has stipulated that election for a new board be held by September 20 this year.
