Former Zimbabwe Cricket Player Rep Field Backs Call For ICC Audit

Former Zimbabwe Cricket player representative Clive Field said Monday he supports former Zimbabwe cricket coach Phil Simmons’ call for the International Cricket Council to look into charges of financial mismanagement in the national administrative body.

Simmons urged the ICC to audit the local cricket board before providing fresh funds. He said no new facilities have been built, raising questions as to the use of funds.

Field told reporter Marvellous Mhlanga-Nyahuye of VOA's Studio 7 for Zimbabwe that an audit could bolster the integrity of the game and halt the exodus of seasoned players to South Africa and beyond due to nonpayment of player bonuses.
