Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) was recently suspended by the International Cricket Council (ICC) over what is perceived as “political interference”. The decision has taken many by surprise and puts into jeopardy the careers of players and the overall future of cricket in Zimbabwe.
In these testing times, former Zimbabwe batsman and current batting coach of Pakistan, Grant Flower has declared that the decision by the ICC seems to be driven by the crisis-laden ZC.
Fed up with ZC’s slow progress over the years despite promises of improvement, the ICC finally had enough of the incompetent board.
“I can understand the player's frustrations, but unfortunately with Zimbabwe cricket, it sounds like the ICC have just had enough. Regarding money owed and money lent, and money the ICC gave Zimbabwe that they're probably never going to see again, it sounds like maybe they've run out of patience,” Flower said.
