Zimbabwe cricketers two months strike ends
Harare: A two-month-long strike over unpaid wages and bonuses by Zimbabwe`s cricketers has ended after the cricket union processed the outstanding salaries.
Sports 24 quoted a players` representative, Eliah Zvimba, as saying that the strike is over.
Zvimba said players have been advised to resume training in preparation for a domestic Twenty20 tournament that was boycotted this week.
The players went on strike two months ago over unpaid wages and bonuses dating back to last September, and staged a sit-in three days ago at the Harare Sports Club, the venue of the tournament.
Zvimba said the stand-off between the ZC and the players resulted in Afghanistan cancelling a match against Zimbabwe last month.
The national cricket body said this week that it was waiting for financial assistance from the International Cricket Council (ICC) to pay the cricketers.
