SRC responds to Zimbabwe cricket suspension

Zimbabwe Sports and Recreation Commission (SRC) said they will not take any action until they receive official communication from the International Cricket Council (ICC) concerning their decision of suspending the Zimbabwe Cricket.

The ICC has suspended the Zimbabwe Cricket on the 18th of July 2019 citing political interference as reason , the decision was taken during the ICC Annual Conference in London.

In a statement the SRC said, “The SRC and the Interim Committee is yet to be formally advised in writing of the ICC’s detailed reasons for its decision. Once it is in receipt of the same, the SRC will activate the various contingency measures it had considered in the event of such a decision,”

The ICC has also suspended the funding of the game in Zimbabwe.

“We do not take the decision to suspend a Member lightly, but we must keep our sport free from political interference. What has happened in Zimbabwe is a serious breach of the ICC Constitution and we cannot allow it to continue unchecked,” said ICC Chairman Shashank Manohar.
