ICC on Monday said appointment of an interim committee to administer Zimbabwe Cricket should not be seen as a solution to the issues faced by the game in the country and the matters must be urgently solved to support their participation in the international cricket.
"An email has been forwarded to us on behalf of the Zimbabwe Sports and Recreation Commission confirming that an Interim Committee has been appointed and we are in the process of seeking to obtain further details regarding this development," ICC President Ehsan Mani said acknowledging the decision of the Zimbabwe Sports and Recreation Commission to appoint the Committee to administer ZC.
"However, no-one should regard the appointment of this committee as a solution to the issues facing Zimbabwe cricket and there remain a number of outstanding matters that must be urgently resolved in an open and transparent manner to support Zimbabwe's participation in international cricket.
"These include addressing allegations of financial mismanagement; ensuring disputes between players and the board are effectively addressed; and providing certainty for other ICC members that the strongest possible Zimbabwe cricket team will be able to fulfil future international commitments, especially the forthcoming tour of the West Indies due to commence in April," he said.
