ICC restors Zimbabwe membership


International Cricket Council (ICC) on Monday has restored Zimbabwe’s membership following a three-month suspension over political interference.

The move followed a meeting in Dubai involving the Zimbabwe Cricket chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani and sports minister, Kirsty Coventry, ICC said in a statement.

ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar said, “I would like to thank the Zimbabwe sports minister for her commitment to the reinstatement of Zimbabwe Cricket. Her desire to work in support of Zimbabwe Cricket was clear and she has unconditionally complied with the conditions set down by the ICC board.”

Zimbabwe will now be able to take up their place in the men’s Under-19 World Cup in January and the ICC Super League later in 2020.
