Trevor Gripper and Barney Rogers, two so-called "rebels" who walked out on Zimbabwe five years ago, could be about to make a comeback.

Rogers, 26, and Gripper, 33, have been approached by the board of one of the franchises in the new domestic league which begins in mid-August.

"We have been speaking to many players with regards to joining the Northerns franchise especially the former internationals who want to return to the national team," Hugo Ribatika, chief executive of Northerns, told the Standard. "Barney has already agreed to sign on and we have just begun talks with Gripper."

Doug Marillier, who played five Tests and 48 ODIs for Zimbabwe, along with Campbell Macmillan are also believed to be interested in making a comeback. All the franchises have to sign their players by August 5.
