London:

Rebel Zimbabwe players have requested the International Cricket Council's Disputes Resolution Committee to deal with their confrontation with the Zimbabwe Cricket Union. Although the players have paid heed to the ICC advice to approach the Disputes Committee, the ZCU is still reluctant to do so, saying such a body does not have the jurisdiction to deal with the matter. "The ICC has previously advised both the ZCU and the player's representatives of the ICC's view and the external legal advice that we have obtained that this procedure may be applied in this case," ICC President Ehsan Mani said in a press release. "At this time, the ZCU is not of the same view. It believes that a Disputes Resolution Committee does not have any jurisdiction over this dispute. However, the players have advised the ICC that they wish to take this dispute to this forum," he said. Zimbabwe cricket has been thrown into turmoil by a strike by 15 senior players protesting against the ZCU's selection policies, the make-up of the selection panel and the decision not to reinstate deposed captain Heath Streak.
