The Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) board has approved the payment of an allowance to cushion non-contracted women players of national interest.

The board has announced the establishment of a three-member national women's selection panel.

This was one of the resolutions passed during the board's first virtual meeting held on Sunday.

Former Zimbabwe internationals Julia Chibhabha, Thando Mlilo and Emily Njinjika will make up the national women's selection panel.

Chibhabha, the first captain of the Zimbabwe national women's cricket team, will be the convenor.

During the meeting, held online due to the coronavirus pandemic that is ravaging the world, the board was also apprised of ZC's business continuity plans during and after the national lockdown imposed by the government in an effort to contain the spread of the coronavirus that causes Covid-19.

The board also discussed the guidelines for the safe resumption of cricket published by the International Cricket Council to assist its members in restarting cricket activity as government restrictions owing to Covid-19 start to relax.
