International Cricket Council Grants Zimbabwe Women Test, ODI Status
The International Cricket Council (ICC) has granted ODI and Test status to all full-member women’s cricket teams.
The development means the women’s teams of Zimbabwe, Bangladesh and Afghanistan, join the other ten teams that had the privilege of playing Test cricket.
Before the decision to grant ODI and Test status to all full-member women’s cricket teams, only India, West Indies, Sri Lanka, New Zealand, South Africa, Netherlands, Ireland, England, Australia, and Pakistan had the privilege of playing Test cricket.
The ICC board was quoted by BDcrictime as saying on Thursday, April 1:
It was decided that Test and ODI status shall be permanently awarded to all Full Member women’s teams
Zimbabwe has been a full member of the ICC since 1992. The country’s men’s team has been playing Test cricket since then.
The granting of test status to the Zimbabwe women’s cricket team means they now have the opportunity to test themselves regularly against the best teams.
