ICC to Lift Suspension on Zimbabwe Cricket

The team and its governing body was banned by the ICC on July 18

International Cricket Council chairman Shashank Manohar spoke about the future of Zimbabwe Cricket after being suspended on July 18. The body was found to have breached Article 2.4 of the ICC Constitution. Government interference was found in the body’s affairs which were held accountable for the ban.

‘We do not take the decision to suspend a member lightly, but we must keep our sport free from political interference’, Manohar said. The members had a meeting and discussed considering ZC’s membership in the ICC. 

Zimbabwe’s women’s team was barred from taking part in the ICC Women’s Cricket World Cup Qualifier. The men’s team was also not allowed to join in the 2019 ICC World Twenty20 Qualifier. Despite the ban, Zimbabwe toured Bangladesh and Singapore this year. If ZC gets reinstated, they will start receiving funds from ICC. 

The International Cricket Council is the governing body of cricket. To know more about cricket leagues run by the ICC, check out the page on Betwala.
