Zimbbawe Cricket looks to Australia relief

Cricketers resume strike as ZC fails to pay

AUSTRALIA’S cricket team will tour Zimbabwe for the first time in a decade to play a triangular one-day series that also will involve neighbours South Africa.

The Australians are currently in South Africa.

The Zimbabwe tour has been scheduled for July or August, around the time South Africa was meant to visit its neighbour for a two-test and limited-overs series.

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) chairman Peter Chingoka told the media that the tournament will bring "financial relief" to the struggling board.

ZC has been unable to play players over the last five months and seen its national squad go on strike in the build-up to next month's World Twenty20.

Australia last toured the country in 2004 for a one-day series, which the Aussies won 3-0.

This is welcome news for Chingoka and company after they also finally ended a two month strike by players over the non-payment of salaries and bonuses from last year.

The strike disrupted the four-day competition in December and the T20 matches that were meant to start last Monday.
