Ongoing pay dispute between Cricket Australia and the players set to miss deadline

Cricket Australia and the country’s players intend to miss a deadline to resolve a Friday wage dispute, which could allow players for unemployment and danger games, which include this year’s series of ashes.

The ESD current between CA and the Australian Cricket Players Association (ACA) expires at midnight (1400 GMT) in the hope of a late advance that fades quickly.

The parties to the conflict have been unable to agree on revenue sharing, and almost 230 players will be in breach of contract and will not be considered until a new MOU is agreed.

Players joining multi-year contracts that go beyond June 30 will continue to be paid and will play and practice as before.

The Australian A tour in South Africa in July is the first in the line of fire, with its unknown destination if a new agreement is not reached.

The test drive Bangladesh Australia in August and September and the lucrative international series one day in India in September are also threatened, and the series of shows in the series test ash against England later this year.

The women’s team is currently participating in the World Cup in the United Kingdom. They have a special contract that will run until the end of the tournament.

Players will meet in Brisbane for Monday practice before the scheduled Australian tour in South Africa. The first game of the tour is scheduled to begin July 12.

Reports said that it could distribute CA contract stars such as tourist contracts Glenn Maxwell and Usman Khawaja to ensure their participation in the series, although there is also the possibility of a boycott if no agreement is reached.

The ACA board of directors and executive must have a Sydney Sunday meeting where they will review the players’ response if the deal breaks down and the mass of the cricket players hired remains out of work.

The AC wants to change the current compensation model in which players receive a share (about 25%) of the agreed gross revenue related to cricket, and replace it with a new offer to split a portion of the surplus of all stakeholders And to increase the wages of men and women and the international of this national sport.

The updated offer, carried out last Friday, was rejected by the ACA remains firmly opposed to the elimination of a revenue-sharing model.

The players’ union issued its own proposal in March, which widens the definition of revenue and players receive a smaller proportion (22.5%).

This was rejected by the AC, which said it retained the “inflexible” income-based revenue model to distribute payments. Since then, the negotiations have remained virtually stagnant.
