Zimbabwe set to face Pakistan despite row over wages

The players took part in some planning sessions for Saturday's third ODI, but threatened to boycott the match if the money owed to them was not in their accounts by 5pm (1500 GMT). Although that has not happened, it is believed that transfers were made by ZC in front of a group of senior players on Friday afternoon.
