Vermeulen charged with arson
02 Nov 2006
By: Richard Edmunds


Former Zimbabwe Test batsman Mark Vermeulen has been formally charged with arson in connection with attacks earlier in the week on both the Zimbabwe Cricket Academy and an office at Zimbabwe Cricket's headquarters.

Vermeulen, who earlier in the year received a lengthy ban from cricket following a bizarre and violent outburst while playing club cricket in England, had been taken into questioning soon after the attacks, which destroyed buildings at the Academy, and that has quickly led to a formal arson charge.
