Zimbabwe Cricket Squad Invited to Join Intercontinental Cup Tourney

The International Cricket Council has invited the Zimbabwe Cricket squad to participate in the 2009-2010 Intercontinental Cup which is normally only open to Associate members.

Although Zimbabwe is a full ICC member it could play against Ireland, Scotland, Canada, Kenya, Netherlands and Afghanistan in the four-day first-class tournament.

Participation could advance Zimbabwe's prospects of returning to test status.

Zimbabwe Cricket Media and Communications Head Shingai Rhuhwaya told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that that the organization has not decided whether to take part in the tourney but was honored to be invited.
