Cricket is the most popular sport in Zimbabwe. Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) is a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC).The Zimbabwean cricket team is a national cricket team representing Zimbabwe. It is administrated by Zimbabwe Cricket (formerly known as the Zimbabwe Cricket Union or ZCU). Zimbabwe is a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with Test and One Day International status. Cricket was introduced to Rhodesia in the 19th century and the Rhodesian Cricket Union was formed in 1898. Rhodesia participated in the Currie Cup, the South African inter-province competition in 1904/05 and then again from 1929/30 until 1979/80. In May 1980, the new post colonial country of Zimbabwe severed its Cricketing ties with South Africa and it became an Associate Member of the (then) "International Cricket Conference". Zimbabwe became a full member of the ICC on 6 July 1992 and played its first test match on 18–22 October the same year, against India at the Harare Sports Stadium in Harare. The match was drawn. During the 2003 cricket World Cup, the political situation in Zimbabwe came to the fore on the Cricket field. 2 Zimbabwean players, Andy Flower (white) and Henry Olonga (black), defied orders and wore black armbands during matches in protest against the "death of democracy in Zimbabwe" – a reference to their concern over the political actions of Zimbabwean President Robert Mugabe. Both players subsequently retired from Cricket and emigrated from Zimbabwe.
