Cricket players sue board

HARARE - Lawyer Beatrice Mtetwa has been engaged by Zimbabwe's leading cricketers to sue the Zimbabwe Cricket Board for unpaid salaries and fees. They will pursue the Board for US$750,000 unless they receive money owed to them by the end of the month. It is unlikely that Zimbabwe Cricket will be

able to pay as the Zimbabwe under-23 side was excluded from South Africa’s domestic provincial competition because it could not pay fees for the second half of the season.

The players state that they have not been paid match fees for two Tests and six one-day internationals against New Zealand and India in August and September, plus salaries going back five months. They also say they are owed allowances and expenses. Mtetwa said she would only issue a summons against the board if they failed to meet the deadline.

35 players under previous contracts have said that they will not negotiate new ones until they have been paid.
