In another step to provide more opportunities to players in the USA, the ICC has given the countrys womens team a wildcard entry into next years ICC Europe Womens T20 Qualifier, despite having suspended the USA Cricket Association in June, 2015.In an email sent on Thursday to the players announcing the move, which was obtained by ESPNcricinfo, ICC Americas Cricket Manager Tom Evans said the decision was taken following a recent meeting of the ICC Womens Committee to extend the invite to USA due to an increase in domestic womens cricket activity.USA has not had an opportunity to compete for qualifying berths in ICC tournaments since 2012 when they finished second to Canada in the ICC Americas Womens Twenty20 championship held in the Cayman Islands. However, the ICC cancelled the regional tournament in 2014, stating at the time that the money for the tournament would be better spent on grassrts development. It eliminated any chance for a representative from the region to compete for a spot in the 2016 Womens World T20 and the 2017 Womens World Cup.At the time, the USA had an estimated 100 female players nationwide, but the womens programme had stagnated in part due to the USACA not having organised a womens national tournament since 2011. Earlier this year, the ICC Americas office organised a series of scouting combines in eight cities, encouraging women to try out. Approximately 45 women attended, from which a 22-player squad was invited to a national camp in Philadelphia in September, which included matches against an MCC Womens touring side featuring Claire Taylor and Charlotte Edwards.As part of the preparation plans to get the national squad ready for competition next year, ICC officials have said they intend to schedule several camps and recruitment initiatives beginning in March, ahead of the ICC Europe Qualifier scheduled for August. USA will take on Scotland and Netherlands in the Europe qualifier for a spot in the global qualifier for the 2018 Womens World T20 in the West Indies.Among the recruitment initiatives tentatively planned to grow the womens playing base and strengthen the competition pl for the national team are two pilot programs. One is aimed at organising modified and/or co-ed intramural club cricket games on college campuses, while another is expected to target current or former, recent NCAA athletes who have played field hockey, golf, lacrosse and softball to gauge their interest in attempting a transition to cricket. kiesshop.com/Customized/" target="_blank">Custom Houston Rockets Jerseys .ca lks back at the stories and moments that made the year memorable. kiesshop.com/Ryan-Anderson-City-Edition-Jersey/" target="_blank">Ryan Anderson Rockets Jersey .

MIAMI -- Goran Dragic sat out almost the entire third quarter after picking up his fourth foul, and thats when the Miami Heat saw control of yet another game start to slip away.Dragic made sure that was a temporary problem.He scored 13 of his season-high 34 points in the fourth quarter, and Miami beat the Washington Wizards 112-101 to snap a five-game losing streak.We want him to make a lot of plays for our team, Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said. We have great confidence in him. I think hes really comfortable right now and we want to keep him in this place. Hes driving so much of what were doing right now offensively.Dragic made 14 of 23 shots, helping Miami kick off a six-game homestand with a win. The Heat outscored Washington by 26 points when he was on the flr, and were outscored by 15 when he was on the bench.We had a meeting and said this is our chance, Dragic said. We go on a run, we put together some gd games and win a couple in a row, this is a big opportunity for us to show we can play.Hassan Whiteside had 17 points and 16 rebounds and James Johnson scored 14 off the bench for Miami, which won for only the third time in 11 games at home.John Wall scored 30 points and Bradley Beal added 29 for Washington, which is 0-2 against Miami this season.Its just a tough loss for us because we battled hard throughout the game, Wizards coach Scott Brks said. A couple breaks here and there we probably could have won the game.Miami led 59-53 at the half, after making 10 consecutive shots late in the second quarter. Dragic went 4 for 4 in that stretch, plus assisted on two others.But he picked up his third foul -- a call he didnt like -- witth 38 seconds left in the half, then got his fourth early in the third quarter.ddddddddddddWhen he went to the bench, Miami was up nine. But a 23-7 Wizards run later in the third gave Washington a five-point edge, and it was a one-point game going into the fourth when Dragic returned.He got a lot of easy lks, Beal said. We were trying to figure out what we wanted to do with him. ... I have to give credit where it is due. He was shting the ball well and he played well tonight.TIP-INSWizards: Beal made two 3-pointers, giving him 496 in his career. Hes about to become the third Wizards player to make 500 3s, joining Gilbert Arenas and Antawn Jamison. ... Washington plans to evaluate F Ian Mahinmi (right knee) in the coming days. Mahinmi has missed 22 of the Wizards 23 games.Heat: Dragics 34 were a high for his Heat tenue. ... James Johnson (right shoulder) returned after sitting out four games. Luke Babbitt (right hip) was cleared to return, but did not play. Dion Waiters (groin) remains out.WINSLOW UPDATEHeat forward Justise Winslow missed his 16th game with a sore left wrist. Hes getting better. Hes doing more court work each day, Spoelstra said.BEAL AND WALLIn four games where the Wizards didnt have both Beal and Wall, they averaged 94 points. In 19 games with both in the lineup, theyve averaged 106.UP NEXTWizards: Host Charlotte on Wednesday, and will wear Stars and Stripes military appreciation jerseys.Heat: Host Indiana on Wednesday, after beating the Pacers twice in Miami last season -- both in overtime.
