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 was a full member of the International Cricket Council (ICC) with Test and One Day International status. Zimbabwe played its first Test match in 1992 (against India at Harare resulting in a draw), becoming the ninth Test nation. Zimbabwe's early Test performances were consistently weak, leading to suggestions that they had been granted Test status prematurely. In the one-day arena, however, the team soon became competitive, if not particularly strong. In particular, world respect was gained for their fielding ability. After a series of poor Test performances following the resignation of several senior players, the Zimbabwean team was voluntarily suspended from Test cricket in late 2005 by its cricket board, with ICC encouragement. Zimbabwe is expected to resume playing Test cricket in May 2011 against Bangladesh, which will be the first time it has played a Test match in more than five years.
