The International Cricket Council (ICC) on Thursday confirmed that Zimbabwe would not take part in Test cricket for the remainder of 2004.

ICC president Ehsan Mani told a news conference at Lord’s: “They will continue to play one-day cricket as a pathway for the players”.

“The dispute between the Zimbabwe Cricket Union (ZCU) and the players is a worrying issue. It should have been resolved in Zimbabwe.”

Zimbabwe agreed to postpone their remaining 2004 Tests earlier this month after the ZCU became embroiled in a bitter row with 15 of the country’s leading white players over team selection. The players made themselves unavailable and were then sacked, leaving Zimbabwe with a side unable to compete at the top level.
