Harare:

Zimbabwe national team cricketers have ended a two-month strike over unpaid wages and bonuses after the cricket union processed outstanding salaries, a players' representative said Thursday.

"The strike is over," Eliah Zvimba told AFP. "I have been advised by Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) that players' outstanding salaries have been processed."

Zvimba said he had advised the players to resume training in preparation for a domestic Twenty20 tournament that was boycotted this week.

The players went on strike two months ago over unpaid wages and bonuses dating back to last September and staged a sit-in three days ago at Harare Sports Club, the venue of the tournament.

Zvimba said the stand-off between the ZC and the players resulted in Afghanistan cancelling a match against Zimbabwe last month.

The national cricket body said this week that it was waiting for financial assistance from the International Cricket Council (ICC) to pay the cricketers.
