Tremain, Garrick, 1941- :"But you called off a tour of Sri Lanka without batting an eyelid!" Otago Daily Times, 27 June 2005.

Reference Number: DX-022-285

The scene shows the office of Martin Snedden, the CEO of New Zealand Cricket. Martin Snedden is sitting behind his desk being interviewed by a reporter who sits opposite. The reporter asks why it was relatively simple to call off a tour of Sri Lanka, when doing the same thing in response to the cricket tour of Zimbabwe seems so difficult. Martin Snedden replies that the Sri Lanka tour risked the lives of the cricketers as opposed to the Zimbabwe tour where it is only the lives of the local people which are at risk. Refers to the increasing pressure being placed on the New Zealand Cricket team to cancel its August tour because of the human rights abuses of Robert Mugabe against his people, the most recent one being the destroying of shantytowns so that thousands of people have been made homeless.
