Cricket South Africa (CSA) ended its bi-lateral agreements with the Zimbabwe Cricket Union on Monday until further notice.
In a media release on Monday 23 June 2008 the president of (CSA) Norman Arendse said that CSA has reviewed its position in relation to Zimbabwe cricket.
“In the light of worsening situation in Zimbabwe we have decided to suspend our bi-lateral agreements with the Zimbabwe Cricket Union until further notice” he said.
He elaborated in the past CSA has defended Zimbabwe cricket against heavy odds, but the general situation in Zimbabwe has now made this untenable.
CSA will otherwise continue to comply with the International Cricket Council’s future tours programme regarding Zimbabwe.
He further said that CSA is bound to this programmes as a full member of the ICC.
