No solution in sight

HARARE - Zimbabwe Cricket once again failed to break the impasse with the mid-week meeting that was expected to resolve the ongoing pay dispute with players ending with no solution in sight.

ZC chairman Peter Chingoka engaged the players on Wednesday and with the meeting spilling into the next day. The meeting has not been adjourned to Tuesday.

The domestic franchise league that was set to recommence this weekend has been rescheduled to a later date to be advised by the association after players refused return to work until ZC settle their outstanding dues. 

And now have vowed to register their players’ representative body under the laws of the land.

“Nothing productive came out of the meetings and unfortunately it has been postponed to next Tuesday,” Taylor told the Daily News.

“I don’t think there will be any games this weekend at least it buys time for ZC to try and gather their sponsorship they said were expecting from certain quarters while we carry on with the path that we set, to register our players’ representative with Labour so that we can concentrate on playing the game. In the long run, they (players’ representatives) will take care of any business that pertains to our welfare.”

ZC spokesperson Lovemore Banda confirmed the cancellation of matches.

“We have rescheduled the matches and we are currently working on the new dates,” Banda said.
