At London, the ICC suspends Zimbabwe Cricket with immediate effect in a annual conference saying that the Full Member had failed to prevent government intervention in the administration of sport in the country. Shashank Manohar (ICC's chairman) said that what happened in Zimbabwe is a 'serious breach' of the ICC Constitution.
Apart from this, many decisions were made during the ICC Annual Conference like concussion replacements will be introduced following successful trials in domestic cricket. This rule will be included in ICC playing conditions from August 1 this year. Further, the punishment for slow over-rate has been changed. According to new decision, not only the captain but the players will also be held equally responsible and be fined at the same level as the captain.
