LONDON: The International Cricket Council (ICC) has suspended Zimbabwe from all forms of cricket over concerns of government interference in the running of the game.
Zimbabwe are barred from participating at all ICC events with immediate effect after failing to provide a process for free and democratic elections and ensuring no Government interference in cricket administration.
On the decision, a statement from the ICC read: “We do not take the decision to suspend a Member lightly, but we must keep our sport free from political interference.
“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.
