Zimbabwe is set to co-host the 50-over Cricket World Cup in 2027 along with South Africa and Namibia.

The decision to award the hosting rights to the three countries was confirmed by the International Cricket Council (ICC) on Tuesday.

The ICC confirmed the host nations of the eight men’s white-ball tournaments to take place from 2024 to 2031.

Zimbabwe successfully co-hosted the global showcase in 2003 with South Africa and Kenya.

Recently the country has successfully hosted the 2018 World Cup qualifiers, having already been given the rights to stage the same qualifiers for the next edition next year.
