Bangladesh to host Zimbabwe despite ICC ban

The ICC suspended Zimbabwe last month over the country’s failure to keep the sport free from government interference, putting its participation in multi-nation events in doubt. 

Bangladesh Cricket Board spokesman, Jalal Yunus said, they have been informed by the concerned officials that there is no bar on Zimbabwe playing in bilateral matches as they are only suspended from ICC events. 

Afghanistan is the third team in the tournament scheduled to be held from September 13 to 24.

Bangladesh was originally scheduled to play a bilateral series against Afghanistan in September, but officials said Zimbabwe had been included in the series following a request from the strife-torn country.
