London:

World cricket's governing body has said that it would not interfere in the race row threatening to derail Zimbabwe cricket. A letter from 12 white Test players to the Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) has called for a shake-up of the way the game is managed following the dismissal of captain Heath Streak. Streak was sacked when he called for the removal of two selectors without first-class experience. The rebel players called for an independent mediator working at a neutral venue to resolve the crisis, amidst allegations that a quota system designed to promote the prospects of black cricketers meant Zimbabwe were not always fielding their strongest side. But International Cricket Council (ICC) president Ehsan Mani said it was powerless to intervene in the internal affairs of one of its members. Mani also said he would discuss the issue with Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) chairman Peter Chingoka when he arrives in London later this month. (PTI)
