A SIGH of relief has come to the employees of Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) after its suspension from the international Cricket Council (ICC) was lifted this afternoon.
The announcement was made at the ongoing board meeting in Dubai, United Arab Emirate.
The lifting of the sanctions by ICC was revealed by Frank Mawodza, a social media troll believed to be Givemore Makoni, ZC’s acting manager, on his twitter account.
“Great news coming out of Dubai. The lCC has lifted the suspension on Zimbabwe Cricket; funding has been restored. God is faithful. Hearty congrats to the ZC chair T. Mukhuhlani and the whole cricket fraternity. Right has prevailed over might,” Mawodza wrote.
The local cricket board is expected to start receiving funds and commencement of international matches following the lifting of the ban.
The lifting of the ban is expected to help pay for the salaries of the ZC employees and players who had gone four months without salaries.
ZC was suspended from the international board following the Sports and Recreation Commission suspended the Tavengwa Mukuhlani-led cricket board.
ICC accused the government of meddling into its business forcing the SRC to reverse its ruling.
