Zimbabwe Team World Cup History
The Zimbabwe team World Cup history is not very long and profound, yet the team can boast of having played in six editions of the tournament.

  • Zimbabwe were not eligible to play in the 1975 and 1979 World Cups as the nation was not a member of the ICC.

  • Debuting in the 1983 World Cup, Zimbabwe paled very well and went so far even to beat the much stronger side Australia. Though Zimbabwe didn't get past the first round, they were immensely praised for their performance in the championship.

  • The 1987 World Cup saw another first round exit from Zimbabwe. They could not repeat their previous performance at the World Cup and finished the tournament without registering any wins.

  • The 1992 World Cup was as much of a disaster for Zimbabwe. They finished last at the tournament and once again failed to win a single match.

  • In the 1996 World Cup, Zimbabwe again did not get past the first round. They however won their match against Kenya, registering their only win in the competition.

  • The 1999 World Cup was marginally better for Zimbabwe and they finished the tournament at fifth place. The highlight of the tournament for Zimbabwe was them beating India by three runs in a league match. They also defeated Kenya.

  • Zimbabwe secured the sixth position in the 2003 World Cup. They played well to finish over stronger sides Pakistan and England in their group. In the 5 matches they played, they won 3 and lost 2. provides information on the Zimbabwe Team World Cup History and the World Cup history of other teams.
