Mukuhlani named Africa vice chair, co-opted into ICC committee

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) Chairman Tavengwa Mukuhlani’s influence in the administration of the global game has continued to grow following his latest appointments.


He is now the interim Vice Chairman of the Africa Cricket Association (ACA), while the International Cricket Council (ICC) has co-opted him as a member of the ICC Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee.


ACA Chief Executive Officer Cassim Suliman said: “We are fortunate to have Mr Mukuhlani – a visionary man I have known from the days of the late Peter Chingoka who was the ACA Chairman for seven years – joining our leadership as interim Vice Chairman.


“We are looking forward to him being productive, like he is doing at ZC, to help the ACA move forward in terms of cricket development and growing the women’s game across Africa.”


Apart from his inclusion in the ICC Finance and Commercial Affairs Committee, Mr Mukuhlani also chairs the ICC’s Cricket Kenya Committee that has been helping Cricket Kenya in resolving its governance issues, including coming up with a new constitution.


He recently served on the ICC Audit Committee and chaired the ICC Membership Committee, while he has also been part of the ICC task force spearheading a bid for cricket’s inclusion in the Olympic Games from 2028 onwards.


At the helm of ZC since 2015, Mr Mukuhlani has overseen a turnaround that has brought financial stability to the organisation and is now steering cricket towards becoming Zimbabwe’s number one sport.
