The governing body of world cricket International Cricket Council (ICC) has dealt a huge blow to Zimbabwe Cricket by suspending them with immediate effect. This was announced during its Annual Conference meeting which was held in London on Thursday.
The suspension will have severe consequences as it will not only freeze funding to Zimbabwe Cricket but the representative teams will also be refrained from participating in any ICC events.
The reason behind this suspension was because of Zimbabwe Cricket's failure to fulfill their responsibility of making sure that there is no interference from the government in its administration.
This news was also confirmed by ICC on their official Twitter handle.
According to the media release, ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar has said that they do not take the decision of suspending a member lightly but must keep their sport free from political interference. At the same time, Manohar also added that what happened in Zimbabwe was a serious breach of the ICC Constitution which could not be allowed to continue unchecked.
After hearing the news, the cricket fans came forward to give their opinions.
