There have been media reports that a senior player in the Sri Lankan team has been arrested by the Zimbabwe police.

Zimbabwe Cricket did not elaborate on the nature of the alleged incident.

"To the best of our knowledge, no player or team official was or has subsequently been charged with anything in relation to this incident," Mr. Rhuhwaya added.
