Cricinfo has learned that the reconstruction of Zimbabwe's Academy, which was burned down in an arson attack in late 2006, has stalled since work was suspended by the board in April.

In February, reacting to a Cricinfo report that little had been done since the fire, a Zimbabwe Cricket spokesman said: "The tender for the building was awarded at the end of last year and construction work is underway now. The contractors are doing the brick work. Subject to weather and the availability of materials, we expect the construction to be through by the end of April."

Lovemore Banda, ZC's media manager, told Cricinfo that work had been halted as a consequence of the country's dire economy. "We started the building operations with the hope that the economic situation would improve," he said. "We had expected, all things being equal, to have the reconstruction of the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy completed by April. However, that has not been possible, because of the hyper inflationary state of our economy.
