  Zimbabwe cricket matches will go ahead
Updated 24 January 2003, 17.19
England in action against Australia
The six World Cup cricket games in Zimbabwe are to take place as planned.

The International Cricket Council has decided it's safe enough for England's cricketers to go there.

There were fears it was too dangerous to go.

The country's President Mugabe has been criticised for his policy of taking land owned by white farmers, and for using violence against people who disagree with him.

Safe enough

Zimbabwe's President Mugabe
But the ICC have visited Zimbabwe and said security arrangements are good enough so that the players will be safe.

The British Government doesn't want them to go but the first match will be played on 13 February.

But if things get dangerous, the matches will move to South Africa.
