The ICC has terminated the 9th Test playing-team Zimbabwe; as a result, no cricket team of the country can participate in ICC events. The decision was taken at the ICC annual meeting in London on Thursday. Besides, Zambia and Croatia have their ICC membership while Morocco has been expelled.

The ICC has banned Zimbabwe from cricket unanimously because of violation of Article 2.4 (C) and (D) of the Constitution.

It has been said in this law that there will be no government interfere in Cricket regarding democratically team selections with full independence and proper governance or administration. Brendan Taylor, Hamilton Masakadzara, have been banned indefinitely under the rules.

After taking back the membership from Zimbabwe, ICC chairman Shashanka Manohar said, "We do not want to ban any of our members easily.”

“But we must keep an eye on keeping away political interference from sport. What happened in Zimbabwe is a serious violation of the ICC constitution and we will not tolerate it,” Shashanka also said.
