Zimbabwe suspended from ICC with immediate effect for breach of constitution

Zimbabwe cricket team celebrate taking a wicket

ICC chairperson Shashank Manohar said: "We do not take the decision to suspend a member lightly but we must keep our sport free from political interference".

"Zimbabwe in accordance with the ICC constitution". This is a developing story...

The ICC called for Zimbabwe's cricket officials to be reinstated within three months after which the suspension will be reviewed in October, it said.

The move puts Zimbabwe's participation in October's men's T20 World Cup Qualifier in jeopardy.

Men's and women's teams across all formats of worldwide and first class cricket will be allowed to replace concussed players during matches following a two-year trial in the domestic game, the global Cricket Council (ICC) has said.

"The ICC board heard from both the sports and recreation committee representatives of the Zimbabwe government, and Zimbabwe Cricket before making their decision", the statement added.

He noted that it is a historic moment for the first time two black coaches are meeting at a final. Liverpool manager Jurgen Klopp is concerned about winger Sadio Mane ahead of the new season.

The Croatia Cricket Federation and the Zambia Cricket Union have both also been suspended for continuing non-compliance with ICC Membership criteria, according to a statement released on Thursday.

The ruling will come into force from 1 August, meaning the first game for which they will be available will be the first men's Ashes Test at Edgbaston. A team that finishes behind the required over-rate in any of the World Test Championship matches will have to face a deduction of two competition points for each and every over it is behind.

And the ICC agreed that captains would no longer be suspended for repeated or serious over-rate breaches.

At the ICC meeting, it was all decided that Concussion replacements will also be introduced.

"It has allowed medical staff to assess players with a suspected concussion during matches free of the pressures of leaving a team one player short".
