Johannesburg: Feb 15, 2014

The Australian national cricket team will reportedly tour bottom-of-the-rung Zimbabwe for the first time in ten years to play in a triangular one-day series that also will involve South Africa.

Australia last toured the African country in 2004 for a one-day series, which the visitors won 3-0, and has since avoided visiting the politically troubled nation.

According to Sport24, the tournament is likely to be scheduled for July or August, around the time South Africa was meant to visit its neighbor for a two-Test and limited-overs series.

Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) chairman Peter Chingoka said that the tournament will bring ”financial relief” to the country’s struggling board, which has been unable to play cricketers over the last five months and seen its national squad go on strike in the buildup to next month’s World Twenty20.
