Zimbabwe calls off home series against Sri Lanka

Colombo: Zimbabwe cricket authorities have called off a home series against Sri Lanka scheduled to start in October, citing unspecified "challenging issues."

Sri Lanka Cricket said in a statement Friday that it has received a letter from the Zimbabwe Cricket Board in which it said the tour should be rescheduled to a "future mutually agreed date."

The countries were due to play two tests, three one-day internationals and two Twenty20 matches.

Zimbabwe cricket has recently been in turmoil over a player-pay dispute.
