June[edit]

Australian in Zimbabwe[edit]

The Australian team were due to play 3 ODIs in Zimbabwe, but the tour was cancelled in mid-May by their government following John Howard's order. Howard proclaimed the tour going ahead would be an "enormous propaganda boost" to Robert Mugabe.[1] Cricket Australia was considering the option of holding the planned matches in a neutral location,[2] but the Zimbabwean government quickly ruled out the possibility of the matches being played outside of Zimbabwe. On 15 May, the tour was officially cancelled.[3]
