CSA has proposed a Test
between South Africa and Zim-
babwe to be played before they
host Australia for a Test and
Twenty20 series that begins on
February 12, ESPNcricinfo has
Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) is
unlikely to be able to commit to
the fixture because of their
impasse with their players: they
are on strike over non-payment
and their domestic competitions
have also been put on hold.
With no end in sight to the
boycott, one player, who asked
not to be named, said he thought
"the chances of the match hap-
pening are very slim because we
have not been playing any crick-
et at all."
A second source from Zim-
babwe said even though some
players "welcomed the oppor-
tunity," others are wary of vis-
iting South Africa given the
team s long break from com-
Zimbabwe s last outing was
almost four months ago, against
Pakistan in September. Since
then, a tour by Sri Lanka was
cancelled for financial reasons
and although the domestic four
and one-day competitions
kicked off, they were stalled after
one round of the former and
three matches of the latter.
In case Zimbabwe are unable
to make the trip, CSA are also
considering an alternative.
Members of South Africa s Test
squad would play against a Zim-
babwe A side in Johannesburg
in early February.
That would most likely coin-
cide with the Australians tour
match in Potchefstroom against
a South African Invitation XI.
The Invitation team will prob-
ably not consist of South Africa s
next best as was the case on
2011, but promising players in
the set up.
Haroon Lorgat, CSA s chief
executive, has insisted that the
offer has been made for crick-
eting reasons and is not an
attempt to build support in the
ICC crisis over the future make-
up of international cricket.
Zimbabwe s players went on
strike in mid-December over
They also refused to restart
the fixtures in January, insisting
they will stick to the "no pay,
no cricket" policy. Their stance
led to the limited-overs incom-
ing tour of Afghanistan, which
was scheduled for January, also
Salaries are outstanding as of
November last year and ZC s
financial situation has meant
they cannot provide any guar-
antee as to when they will be
able to pay their players. It is
understood they are currently
in talks with a local corporate
to sign sponsorship and if they
manage to secure the deal,
domestic cricket could resume
by next week.
That would be the only prac-
tice Zimbabwe get ahead of the
World Twenty20, unless they
take up South Africa s offer to
play a Test, which could be
staged at the Wanderers.
There is a possibility that this
sudden move by CSA is to gain
ZC s support when the draft
proposal for a revamp of the
ICC s administrative structure
comes to vote at the Executive
Board s quarterly meeting in
Dubai on January 28 and 29.
CSA s position on the draft,
which will concentrate power
with the BCCI, ECB and CA, is
that the idea was "fundamen-
tally flawed" and "in breach of
the ICC constitution."
