Aussie cricket pay row hits test matches
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.”
