Aus cricket on brink of peace

01 Août 2017

Cricket Australia is set to reach an agreement with the players' union over the pay dispute which has led to large scale discontentment among cricketers, Australian media reported. According to The Daily Telegraph, CA chief executive James Sutherland and ACA chief Alistair Nicholson are jointly set to announce a new deal to resolve the payment dispute that had left about 230 players unemployed.

This is a war that won't be over until it's over and both sides remain wary of last minute complications.

That would see the now unemployed cricketers re-signed immediately on short-term contracts so that they could proceed to playing cricket. Though both parties, who have been at an impasse for almost nine months over CA's move to dismantle a 20-year-old fixed-revenue-sharing system for player payments, dismissed these reports calling talks of a "done deal" as "premature", they finally seem keen on breaking the deadlock that's held Australian cricket at ransom over the last few months.

With the Premier League season approaching, it's no doubt a blow to Origi and Liverpool's preparations ahead of their clash at Watford next weekend.

Australia's ODI team is then scheduled to play a series in India against the host nation in October, with the five-Test Ashes battle that begins at the Gabba in Brisbane on November 23. With Australia's tour to Bangladesh - their first global assignment since the previous MoU expired on July 1 and left Steve Smith and 229 other cricketers without contracts - scheduled to start in the third week of August, time is after all running out to ensure that the crisis doesn't reach extreme levels where the series is called off.

The spat over cash has strained the relationship between administrators and the players, and it is expected to take time for trust to be restored between both parties.
