"If we survive this, we still have a mountain to climb in changing the culture," he said. <p></p> <p></p>"To retain players and value players and put that all together to turn us into a winning combination. It's hard enough to win matches at the best of times. To make yourself a competitive team, you need all your ducks lined up in a row. I don't know how they're going to deal with it. They need a vibrant players body." <p></p> <p></p>Olonga, who announced his retirement in March 2003, has a good reason to leave the country. "Zimbabwe is a complex country. It's drawn along tribal lines. Shona vs Ndebele. Whites vs blacks. Rich vs poor. There's so many lines. All of this began way back. It's not a recent thing, he said. <p></p> <p></p><strong>ALSO READ: <a href="https://www.cricketcountry.com/news/sikandar-raza-speechless-after-icc-replaces-zimbabwe-in-world-t20-qualifiers-877222">Sikandar Raza 'speechless' after ICC replaces Zimbabwe in World T20 qualifiers</a></strong> <p></p> <p></p>Earlier this month, agreeing to a court order directed by the ICC, Zimbabwe s SRC (Sports and Recreation Commission) has decided to re-instate the board which was suspended and replaced by an interim body last month. In August, the ICC, in a letter had instructed ZC to formalise the meetings in which Zimbabwe was suspended over government interference. Additionally, ZC was also directed to re-instate board which was appointed on June 14, 2019 and led by Tavengwa Mukuhlani.
