The International Cricket Council (ICC) said it's representative will soon visit Nepal to address the ongoing crisis at the country's cricket governing body.

ICC had suspended Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) on April 25 due to a dual existence of the cricket governing body after a disputed election invited the government to intervene and form an ad-hoc committee.

In its board meeting in Scotland on Thursday, ICC's 53-member full council unanimously ratified the suspensions of CAN and USA Cricket Association. ICC had also suspended the USACA on June, 2015.

ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar annoucned that ICC delegations comprising Board Directors and senior management will visit the two countries to the meet with the relevant stakeholders and provide an update during the October meetings, the world cricket governing body said in a release.

“Both Nepal and the US are important members of the ICC as they have tremendous talent and potential. The ICC, as part of its game and with as much support as possible so that they can put in place good governance and cricket structures," said Manohar.

“An ICC delegation will visit Nepal and will meet with the Nepal government and cricket officials, while I will lead an ICC team including Mr Dave Cameron, Mr Giles Clarke, Mr Imran Khawaja and Mr David Peever to the USA to meet with various stakeholders in that market and help them lay the foundation for the effective development of the sport (at grass roots and international level) and implementation of a governance structure that unifies the entire cricket community in the USA,” ICC release quoted Manohar as saying.

Meanwhile, the ICC also unanimously elected Saudi Arabia as its 39th Associate Member.
