Zimbabwe Cricket Board has been readmitted by the ICC board after their suspension in 2019, while Nepal board (CAN) has been reinstated on a conditional basis after their suspension in 2016.

A transition plan will be put in place for Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) for them to comply with Associate membership criteria and will also involve controlled funding by ICC. Election of a 17-member Central Working Committee for the Cricket Association (CAN) of Nepal was completed recently as part of the procedure required for re-admittance of the CAN.

The reinstatement and gradual progress will also ensure Cricket Association of Nepal (CAN) to take part in the bidding model to host ICC events post FY2023. The 8-year cycle from FY2023 will consist of 8 Men’s events, 8 Women’s events, 4 Men’s U19 events and 4 Women’s U19 events, along with various sub-regional, regional and global qualifiers for the major events.
