The International Cricket Council (ICC) yesterday announced USA Cricket as its 105th member.
The development is a historical milestone for the governing body established in 2017 to unify and develop the cricket community in the United States following the expulsion of USACA, the ICC said.
USA Cricket's application to become the 93rd Associate Member in accordance with the ICC Constitution was approved by ICC Members following the Membership Committee's recommendation to the ICC Board late last year and is implemented with immediate effect.
As a Member of the ICC, USA Cricket is now eligible to receive funding in accordance with the ICC Development Funding Policy and can sanction domestic and international cricket in the United States.
A transition plan has been agreed for the governing body, which has, to date, been managed by the ICC Americas regional support programme.
This will see all governing body obligations transferred to USA Cricket under the auspices of the USA Cricket Board of Directors this month.
The recruitment of a Chief Executive and key management roles will begin in due course as the immediate priorities of the new Member.
