... this BBC story which goes on at length about the possible difficulties in finding top players to send to Zimbabwe not once mentions why so many players have qualms about going.
The story does include this graf:
Strauss told BBC Sport: "All the players have deep-rooted moral problems with going on the tour. It's not an easy situation for us to be in.
However there's nothing in this story that would let you know that the source of these "moral problems" for many of the players is that they don't want to be seen as lending legitmacy to a murderous dictatorship that has seizes farmland from people based on the color of their skin (white), routinely arrests domestic reporters and editors that criticize the regime (and deports foreign correspondnets that do the same), and has managed to destroy a once thriving economy forcing many of its poorest people to flee to surrounding nations.
Wouldn't want to give the story any context, now would we?
