Australia’s cricket board has warned players will not be given alternative contracts if they fail to agree to a new collective bargaining agreement in an escalation of a protracted and increasingly bitter pay dispute.Australia’s professional cricketers rejected a pay offer from the sport’s governing body last month, saying the proposal was “a win for cricket administrators but a loss for cricket”.CA released their proposal in March, offering large salary increases, particularly for women, but breaking with the 20-year model of a fixed percentage of revenue from the game going to the cricketers. In such a situation, the vice-captain of the team said Warner said that by one July we will be unemployed. Players will not be back on their demands. In such a situation, the Australia team’s tour of India has come in crisis.Tell us that the tour of Australia is going on in Bangladesh as well as the tour of Bangladesh and on the Ashes series. In this case, Australian cricketer is not ready to retreat. Star batsman David Warner has warned that the Australian players will not go back into a bitter wreck dispute, thereby suspending the upcoming tour.
Australia, however, can be the biggest loss due to not having visited India for 5 ODIs in October. An angry India can refuse to tour Australia in 2018-19, which is a huge amount of money for Cricket Australia.“To be very clear, in the absence of a new MOU, CA is not contemplating alternative contracting arrangements to pay players beyond 30 June if their contracts have expired.””This has further been demonstrated this week with some top players being offered multi-years deals one day only to now be threatened the next.”
Australia fast bowler Mitchell Starc hinted at a players’ strike for the upcoming Ashes, the lucrative five-test series against England which starts in November.Talking to the media, Warner said that by one July we will be unemployed. We are being threatened. We hope that the agreement will be done. This is a strange situation. Australia is scheduled to visit Bangladesh in August, for which the team has also been announced.
