Harrare: Zimbabwe's cricketers have gone on strike again and refused to start a domestic Twenty20 tournament after payments promised by the national board weren't received.
Players on Monday decided to boycott the six-day T20 competition after a meeting at Harare Sports Club, the venue for the tournament.
Zimbabwe Cricket had promised players long-overdue payments by Monday, but when they didn't receive them, players from all five of the country's provincial sides held a meeting with their players association at the ground and then decided to go home.
Zimbabwe haven't played international cricket since September, when a test series against Pakistan was undermined by threatened strikes over non-payment. The struggling board recently canceled tours by Sri Lanka and Afghanistan because of its financial problems and turned down a test against South Africa.
