Should the Black Caps tour Zimbabwe with the current situation under President Mugabe's rule? If they decide not to, they will be fined about $2.8 million by the ICC, who have refused to ban Zimbabwe from international cricket (their justification being that sport and politics should not mix). Even so, we must put pressure on Zimbabwe to change!
National have pledged to pay for any fines incurred if the Black Caps forego the Zimbabwe tour, which is likely to be above the $2.8 million fine as television rights etc. must be put into account. Why should taxpayers' money have to be spent on this? We shouldn't have to be paying anything to Zimbabwe. If this occurred President Mugabe would be smiling.
If the government bans the Black Caps from touring Zimbabwe, then the Black Caps would be exempt from having to pay the fine. OK so we have human rights, freedom of choice and so on, but surely this could be a feasible option? NZ Cricket would not have to pay out.
