Mugabe hits another six

The Zimbabwe cricket team has cancelled its tour of England next year, amid growing unrest in Harare over the conduct of some BBC reporters, who are still transmitting reports from within the country.

The BBC is banned from broadcasting in Zimbabwe, but this has not stopped diehard journalists from hiding under bushes and in the backs of lorries to get their stories out and into your living rooms every night, so that you can "tut tut" whilst drinking your cup of tea at suppertime.

Now though, President Robert Mugabe has asked the nation's cricketers to demonstrate their disapproval of the BBC's practices by pulling out of the lucrative 2009 tour.

The English Cricket Board (ECB) is thought to be 'devastated', having at last found a country that England stood a chance of beating.

Asked what she thought of the decision, the BBC's Orla Guerin whispered from behind a sightscreen:

"It's a bit of a sticky wicket in Zimbabwe at the moment."
