Zimbabwe readmitted as ICC member

The International Cricket Council (ICC) has reinstated Zimbabwe as a full member after they were suspended three months back for political interference. Zimbabwe, who could not qualify for the World Cup conducted earlier this summer, faced a ban from ICC events and freezing of their funding in July when the government suspended the country’s cricket board.

Following the ICC meeting involving the high-profile Zimbabwe Cricket officials, the decision has been revoked after assessing the progress made by the board. 

Despite the lifting of the suspension, Zimbabwe will miss out on a chance to register a spot in the ICC T20 World Cup next year as they cannot participate in the qualifiers this month.

They are, nevertheless, eligible to play in the Under-19 World Cup in January. "I would like to thank the Zimbabwe sports minister for her commitment to the reinstatement of Zimbabwe Cricket," ICC chairman Shashank Manohar spoke on the occasion.
