The international cricketing body confirmed that Zimbabwe would not participate in The world T20 cup which is going to held in England next year and Scotland will replace Zimbabwe.
This decision came out after a joint meeting between the International cricket council official and the Zimbabwe cricket official held in Dubai. The main reason attributed by the Zimbabwe officials is the public apposition faced by the authority in Zimbabwe.
Considering the current political scenario in the country , where the president Mugabe is not willing to step down from the top post in the country despite of huge pressure from west.
so in this situation it is very difficult for the Zimbabwean team to get permission to enter in United Kingdom.
The ICC react positively to this and said that, there is need to create a strong optimism for the success of the event so they have dropped the Zimbabwe m the list of the participants. The ICC president Mr David Morgan confirmed the replacement of Zimbabwe by Scotland in the next year T 20 World cup.
