Zimbabwe's planned tour of New Zealand has been thrown into confusion, with the two countries disagreeing over whether it will take place or not.

New Zealand Cricket (NZC) said the West Indies would play a third Test to make up for the "cancelled" Zimbabwe tour.
But Zimbabwe Cricket (ZC) chief Ozias Bvute claimed the tour will go ahead.
"We're committed to engaging our New Zealand counterparts in New Zealand, just as they are fulfilling their commitments here," said Bvute.
"All tours operate on the basis of ongoing communication."
Zimbabwe, who are currently hosting New Zealand, are scheduled to play the reciprocal series in December.
But a statement from NZC chief Martin Snedden said the series would not be going ahead, with the West Indies playing an extra Test to help make up for the shortfall in revenue.
"Attempts to replace the Zimbabwe tour have been partially successful," said Snedden.
"The West Indies cricket board has agreed to a third Test match which will assist us to mitigate any potential losses from the cancelled tour."
New Zealand's government have refused to grant visas to the Zimbabwe touring party.
Under International Cricket Council (ICC) rules, tours can only be cancelled in the event of government intervention.
The West Indies are scheduled to play three Tests, five one-dayers and a Twenty20 match.
New Zealand Prime Minister Helen Clark had tried to stop the Black Caps heading to Zimbabwe for the current tour, because of concerns over human rights abuses in the southern African country.
But the tour has gone ahead, with New Zealand winning the first Test by an innings, after Snedden said the team had a "contractual" obligation and would be liable for a US$2m (£1.1m) fine should they withdraw.
