  Zimbabwe cricket matches will not be moved
Updated 30 January 2003, 18.18
England captain Nasser Hussain signs autographs
England's World Cup cricket match against Zimbabwe will not be moved to another country.

The International Cricket Council (ICC) ruled that the game on 13 February would go ahead as planned, and it would not be changed to South Africa.

England's players said on Monday they wanted the match moved.

The other matches scheduled to take place in Zimbabwe will go ahead too.

No formal request

This comes as the England team arrived in South Africa ready to take part in the World Cup.
Zimbabwe's President Mugabe
Zimbabwe's President Robert Mugabe

There have been weeks of discussions about whether England should play in Zimbabwe, because lots of people don't agree with the way the President, Robert Mugabe, runs the country.

And there are fears it might not be safe for them to play there.

New Zealand were also told their match against Kenya would go ahead as planned in Nairobi, even though they did request a change.
