British Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Wednesday he wanted the Zimbabwe cricket team to be banned from touring England next year and from the 2009 Twenty20 World Cup, which England are due to host.

"The Secretary for Culture is working with the English Cricket Board," Brown told lawmakers at the House of Commons during Prime Minister's Question Time on Wednesday.

"We want to ensure that Zimbabwe does not tour England next year and we will call for other countries to join us in banning Zimbabwe from the Twenty20 international tournament."
