Aussie cricket pay row hits test matches

Irish Sunday Mirror - - STYLE ON SUNDAY -

AN Aus­tralian cricket pay dis­pute may see play­ers refuse to travel for in­ter­na­tional test matches.

With talks be­tween the union and the gov­ern­ing body dead­locked, around 230 play­ers were left ef­fec­tively un­em­ployed when a five-year agree­ment ex­pired last month.

At the heart of the row is Cricket Aus­tralia’s in­sis­tence the two-decade-old model, un­der which play­ers get a fixed per­cent­age of rev­enue, should be jet­ti­soned.

The union said: “The Aus­tralian Crick­eters’ As­so­ci­a­tion con­firms that agree­ment has not been reached for a new Mem­o­ran­dum of Un­der­stand­ing.”
