All the Zimbabwe cricketers will be paid by February 10
Zimbabwe’s domestic Twenty20 season is set to resume on February 10, ending a nearly two-month long strike by all the cricketers.
Zimbabwe’s cricketers decided to go on strike after they were not paid their wages, but it is understood that February 10 is also the day that all the players will be paid in full.
“Finally we start training together tomorrow! Don’t worry a lot of individual training has taken place since the beginning of the year,” Zimbabwe captain Brendan Taylor said via Twitter last night.
Zimbabwe coach Andy Waller announced that the team would be meeting today for fitness tests and fielding practice as they start preparing for the World Twenty20 in Bangladesh next month.
“Obviously I’m relieved that at least we can get on with the core business,” Waller said. “We are starting training tomorrow [Tuesday] as a squad. We lost quite a substantial amount of time that we could have used to work on a few areas, but we’ve still got six weeks [to the World T20], which can give us plenty of time to prepare.”
