8:54 am on 25 February 2009

The trial of former Zimbabwe cricket captain Tatenda Taibu for assaulting a woman senior cricket official has resumed in Harare.

Taibu is accused to have roughed up Zimbabwe Cricket's general manager Esther Lupepe during a row over unpaid salary and expenses.

A prosecution witness says he found Lupepe with "obvious" neck pains, her hair in a dishevelled state and her blouse in disarray.
