Zimbabwe Cricket has postponed domestic cricket for the rest of 2017, in order to upgrade facilities ahead of next year’s World Cup qualifiers and allow themselves breathing room as they deal with another cash crunch which will cause salary delays over the Christmas season.
An internal memo, seen by ESPNcricinfo, was sent to all ZC staff on December 6, and stated that due to “adverse prevailing financial circumstances,” ZC was only able to pay 50% of November salaries and also indicated December salaries would not be paid at all. “While ZC is currently making all efforts to secure funding for December this cannot be guaranteed. Accordingly it is highly likely that staff will receive their December salaries in mid-January 2018.”
