Tatenda Taibu has denied that he has been approached by anyone from Zimbabwe Cricket with a view to making a return to the side ahead of the World Cup.
Cricinfo learned from senior sources inside the board that attempts had been made to secure funds from sponsors to fund the payment of outstanding fees owing to Taibu which were believed to be the main obstacle to his return.
“That’s not true, I haven’t spoken to anyone in the Zim set-up,” he told ‘The Sunday Telegraph’. He added that even if he had been contacted, he would not have considered the proposal. “Too much water has gone under the bridge for me to consider playing for Zimbabwe again.”
It is thought that while Peter Chingoka, who did little at the time Taibu and his family were threatened, the incidents which led to him quitting the national team, remains at the helm of the board then Taibu will stay away.
