Harare: Zimbabwe's cricketers have agreed to end their boycott over unpaid wages and are returning to training after being promised money by next week, coach Andy Waller said on Monday.
Waller told The Associated Press that the national squad will gather on Tuesday for fielding practice and fitness tests after striking for two months over unpaid wages and bonuses and refusing to play domestic games.
The Zimbabwe cricket board's financial problems also resulted in recent tours by Sri Lanka and Afghanistan being canceled, but the board has reportedly secured a USD 3-million loan from the International Cricket Council. Waller said the players were guaranteed payment by next Monday. Zimbabwe Cricket's leadership met with senior players and a players' representative on Friday.
