Breaking: Zim Cricket Suspended From ICC Membership.


Zimbabwe Cricket  (ZC) has been suspended from the International Cricket Council (ICC) membership with immediate effect, the ICC has said.

The decision came after the conclusion of the cricket governing board’s Annual Conference in London, where the headline was the decision to suspend Zimbabwe Cricket with immediate effect.

The ICC Board unanimously decided that Zimbabwe had failed to fulfil their obligation to provide a process for free and democratic elections and to ensure that there is no government interference in its administration for cricket.

ICC funding will be suspended, and representative teams from the country will be barred from participating at ICC events, putting their participation in October’s Men’s T20 World Cup Qualifier in jeopardy.


“We do not take the decision to suspend a Member lightly, but we must keep our sport free from political interference,” said ICC chairman Shashank Manohar.

“What has happened in Zimbabwe is a serious breach of the ICC Constitution and we cannot allow it to continue unchecked. The ICC wants cricket to continue in Zimbabwe in accordance with the ICC Constitution.”
