New Zealand Cricket Association (NZC) is closely observing the political unrest in Zimbabwe ahead of their tour of Zimbabwe this month.  The African nation currently going through trouble as social and economic unrest grappled them this week.

The Black Caps’  departure  will not be delayed as of now, NZC public affairs manager Richard Boock told the New Zealand Herald, but the board will take a close eye on the situation in Zimbabwe  as the team prepares for two-Test series against Zimbabwe at Pretoria, South Africa.

“We are monitoring closely what is happening in Zimbabwe,” Boock said. “There are no plans to delay the players leaving New Zealand. While in camp in Pretoria, we will be able to keep an eye on what is going on. South Africa A are in Harare at present, and we will be liaising with South Africa Cricket and the British High Commission in Harare.”

At the moment the South African A team is touring Zimbabwe for a two four-day matches. The matches will be played in Harare and Bulawayo. In June India have toured Zimbabwe and have won the three ODI and T20 series without any unwanted incident.

New Zealand is scheduled to fly to South Africa on July 11, before moving to Zimbabwe in time for a three-day warm-up game in Harare from July 22. The Tests are set to be played in Bulawayo between July 28 and August 10.
