Zimbabwe's Detail

The Zimbabwean cricket team is administered by Zimbabwe Cricket. Formerly known as Rhodesia, the team was later renamed as the Zimbabwe-Rhodesia Cricket team in 1980. However, it was finally named Zimbabwe in 1981.

An associate member of the International Cricket Council since 1981, Zimbabwe participated in the 1983 ICC Cricket World Cup and went on to play in the 1987 and 1992 editions. The team was granted Test status in 1992 and they played their first Test against India at Harare, which ended in a draw. Zimbabwe performed poorly in the Test arena, but was a good team when it came to the ODIs. Their fielding ability gained a lot of respect around the world. Some of the world’s best cricketers have come from the country of Zimbabwe, like Andy Flower, Heath Streak, Grant Flower, Alistair Campbell and many more. For years, they were known as the face of Zimbabwean Cricket.

However, increasing politicization of cricket, selection policy, etc. led to a lot of internal conflicts between the team and the board and as a result, the management banned the team from playing Test cricket. Most of the senior players went on strike as a mark of protest and the entire team fell like a pack of cards. Though, they continued playing ODIs and T20Is and gave some decent performances in the 2007 ICC World Twenty20 and the 2011 ICC Cricket World Cup. Nothing spectacular took place in those big events but the team returned to the Test fold soon after beating Bangladesh by 130 runs in the one-off Test at Harare.
