ICC summit in Dubai on Zimbabwe crisis

Kolkata:

In a bid to resolve the Zimbabwe imbroglio, the International Cricket Council has convened a special two-day meeting of cricketing heavyweights in Dubai beginning tomorrow. Confirming his participation, BCCI chief Jagmohan Dalmiya said the ICC as well as the parties involved in the dispute wanted him to attend the extraordinary meeting called by ICC President Ehsan Mani. Apart from Dalmiya, Cricket Australia's Bob Merriman, United Cricket Board of South Africa President Raymond Mali and some of the leading Zimbabwe players would be attending the meeting. The meeting would also give an opportunity to Dalmiya to discuss with UCBSA president the "confusion" over the itinerary of the South African team's tour of India in November this year. Last month also Dalmiya had been invited to mediate in the Zimbabwe crisis but after hectic telephonic discussions the crisis could only be averted with the Zimbabwe-Australia Test series scrapped at the last moment to avoid the series being stripped of Test status.
