|Bangla to host Zimbabwe despite ban|
DHAKA, Aug 8: Bangladesh will host Zimbabwe for a tri-nations Twenty20 tournament in September despite the African nation being suspended by the game’s world body, an official of the Bangladesh Cricket Board said on Thursday.
The International Cricket Council (ICC) suspended Zimbabwe in July over a failure to keep the sport free from government interference, putting the country’s participation in multi-nation events in doubt.
“We have been informed by the concerned officials that there is no bar on Zimbabwe playing in bilateral matches. They are only suspended from ICC events,” told a BCB spokesman. – AFP
