Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe has been criticised for taking land owned by white farmers and for using violence against people who disagree with the way he runs the country.
So the government was asking the players not to go, but it couldn't force them.
The Cricket Board has decided they should play on 13 February in Africa as planned.
The government said the decision is "disappointing".
The board's boss Tim Lamb said: "Sport alone does not have the ability to solve political problems, but it can sometimes help to bring people together."
To show they don't support President Mugabe, the team won't shake hands with him if he goes to the match.
