Zimbabwe’s cricket status is set to be discussed at next week’s meeting of the International Cricket Council (ICC) in Dubai after Cricket South Africa (CSA) suspended ties with its African neighbour on Monday.
CSA acted in light of the growing political turmoil in Zimbabwe, where the main opposition Movement for Democratic Change party has pulled out of the presidential run-off election in order to prevent its members being the subject of reprisal attacks by the government led by Robert Mugabe.
“The ICC has never concerned itself with how member countries are governed,” ICC president-elect David Morgan, speaking at the launch of the ICC World Twenty20 2009 at the Oval, said on Tuesday.
“However, yesterday [Monday] Cricket South Africa announced that they were scrapping bilateral contact with Zimbabwe cricket.
“It has been decided to put Zimbabwe on the agenda of the executive board meeting of the ICC, which takes place next Wednesday in Dubai.”—AFP
