Zimbabwe and Nepal were re-admitted as ICC members in a meeting held in Dubai.

ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar said in a press release: “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. Funding to Zimbabwe Cricket will continue to be on a controlled basis as part of a collective effort behind getting the game in Zimbabwe back on an even keel.”

Zimbabwe will now be able to take up their place in the ICC Men’s U19 Cricket World Cup in January and the ICC Super League later in 2020.

Zimbabwe Cricket had been suspended from membership of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with immediate effect in July this year. The decision was taken during the ICC Annual Conference in London.
