Ravichandran Ashwin was extremely affected by ICC’s decision to suspend Zimbabwe’s membership with immediate effect in ICC’s Annual Conference in London on Thursday. The decisions has put a question mark on the careers of current international as well as domestic players.
Ashwin in a tweet sympathized with the cricketers who had their livelihood destroyed by ICC.
In an emotional Tweet, Zimbabwean player Raza said this is not how he wanted to bid adieu to the sport.
Other Zimbabwe cricketers including Brendan Taylor, Kyle Jarvis, Solomon Mire, Natsai Mshangwe too shared their disappointment over the sudden suspension.
ICC made this harsh decision after Zimbabwe Cricket were unable to provide a process for conducting free and democratic elections. Zimbabwe was scheduled to tour India for three T20Is in January 2020. This would have been their first tour to India after a long gap of 17 years. Meanwhile, their suspension has also left their hopes of participating in ICC T20 World Cup 2020 hanging by a thread.
