CA says no deal no pay for State players
CRICKET: State cricketers are staring down the barrel of months without pay as part of the fallout for their stand against Cricket Australia with confirmation players with expiring contracts will not get paid a cent until a new deal is done.
In a letter sent to all the state high performance managers and the Australian Cricketers Association late on Wednesday night the bleak outlook was made clear.
Cricket Australia high performance manager Pat Howard (pictured) confirmed those with contracts, either national or state, that expire on June 30 would be allowed to continue training in the absence of a new Memorandum of Understanding.
But while uncontracted players who take up that option will be covered medically and with insurance, they will not get paid, and there will be no back pay should the impasse continue well beyond the end of this week.
