Sydney: The 15 rebel Zimbabwe cricketers are said to be planning what they call a social tour of England to raise money for their legal costs. The players all of whom have had their contracts terminated by the Zimbabwe Criket Union (ZCU) say that they need to earn money for their legal costs. The rebels, led by sacked captain Heath Streak are considering playing games against various club sides. The players, all white, are on a strike to protest the sacking of Heath Streak as the captain as well as the ZCU's selection policy. Andy Flower and Henry Olonga who currently play in England could also join in. Meanwhile the ICC will take a final decision on the issue at their next meeting at Lord's in June.
