NZ cricket tour to Zimbabwe postponed

8:39 am on 25 February 2009

A cricket tour to Zimbabwe by the Black Caps in July has been postponed because of concerns about the political situation there.

The tour was due to take place in July and has been delayed by a year.

The decision came after discussions between the chief executives of New Zealand and Zimbabwe Cricket during an ICC conference in Johannesburg.

New Zealand will now tour in June 2010.
