The International Cricket Council has told the USA it will not be allowed to enter the Intercontinental Cup.

The decision came after the factions disputing who should control the United States of America Cricket Association failed to agree on a unified team.

The Cayman Islands have been invited to play in the event instead.

"The game of cricket in the USA and the cricketers who seek to play cricket for USA at the highest level are again the losers," said ICC chief Malcolm Speed.

The USA had been due to play matches against Bermuda from 27-29 August and Canada from 31 August-2 September.
