ZC to go ahead with Pakistan tour


Zimbabwe Cricket says it will go ahead with its proposed tour of Pakistan to raise money for flood victims despite allegations of corruption involving players from the Asian team.

In a statement Tuesday, ZC managing director Ozias Bvute said: “Zimbabwe Cricket’s offer to tour Pakistan as part of that country’s bid to relieve the suffering of millions of flood victims remains unchanged following recent allegations of corrupt practises against certain members of the Pakistan national team in England.

“We made the offer to help on the basis that six million people in Pakistan are homeless and that doesn’t change because of allegations against a couple of players, albeit extremely serious ones.”

He added: “We have received many enquiries about whether we are reconsidering our position but, unless otherwise advised by the ICC or PCB, we are still ready and willing to bring some relief to the country, however slight, by touring and playing international cricket there.
