Lol, thanks for the vote of confidence. I would if I could Googly. Would love to see cricket flourish in the West Indies (including the territories not under the WICB), New Zealand, Sri Lanka, Zimbabwe, Bangladesh, East Africa, Afghanistan, Ireland, Namibia, Malaysia and Singapore....
As I outlined in another thread
though, perhaps the solution could be achieved with people in the country already:
Perhaps the solution is to be found in the experience of another African nation over a decade ago....Kenya. The KCA was discredited and and new body organized to replace it, Cricket Kenya. Eventually the ICC mediated and facilitated new elections and a new constitution for the KCA which smoothed the transition over to Cricket Kenya formally. If the ICC suspended (but not demoted) ZC over misuse of funds, but set up a facility so that local Zimbabwean clubs could present their audited expenses to the facility and have those bills paid from ZC's share of ICC funding then this could enable local club personnel and cricketers who aren't corrupted to stay in the game so to speak and allow them to organize a rival body (let's call it "Cricket Zimbabwe")...or rather a pressure group instead of a rival body and call it the "Cricket Zimbabwe Committee" or "Cricket Reform Committee" with the aim to push for new elections in ZC and a new constitution which would wind up ZC and replace it with "Cricket Zimbabwe".
