Zimbabwe Cricket will be in the center point of the global cricketing universe as it not only hosts the 2019 ICC Cricket World Cup Qualifiers in March 2018 but also will now host the Annual Conference meeting of the ICC in April 2018 at Victoria Falls.
A total of 104 member representatives will come together to participate in the ICC Annual meeting. Asia is represented by 21 countries, Europe have 33 countries with associate status and Africa has 22 countries listed as Associate members as well.
“There are 21 members of the ICC in the Asia region with Afghanistan taking the biggest strides over recent years,’’ the ICC said in an official statement before also noting the “strong performances at the global level from Oman.’’
“Europe as a region has the most number of members of the ICC, with 33 in total. There are varying degrees of growth across the membership in Europe outside of the Full Member England. From Ireland, Scotland and Netherlands . . . to the newest members Hungary and Serbia beginning to develop a fan base in non-traditional markets.”
The last Annual meeting held in June this year saw proposals made for Test & ODI leagues along with granting of test status and full membership to both Ireland & Afghanistan.
