Which regime change?

The head of New Zealand Cricket, Justin Vaughan, is trying to deal with the upcoming scheduled New Zealand tour of Zimbabwe in July 2009, having been told by Prime Minister Helen Clark that New Zealand should not be touring Zimbabwe in its current parlous state. The Herald reports that 'Vaughan says many things can happen in 12 months, such as a regime change, which would make them more sympathetic towards Zimbabwe'.

Would it be scurrilous and disingenuous to point out that that Vaughan's quote doesn't actually specify regime change in Harare, and that he could be talking about regime change in Wellington? Worth asking, I'd've thought.
