BCB 'delighted' after CA-ACA broker peace deal

Cricket Australia, players' union end pay dispute; Bangladesh series on

The longstanding pay dispute between Cricket Australia (CA) and the Australian Cricket Association (ACA) seems to have finally come to an end as both the parties have reportedly arrived at an agreement and signed a deal.

Players boycotted a developmental "Australia A" tour to South Africa last month and as the dispute become increasingly acrimonious there were serious concerns among Australian cricket supporters - from the prime minister down - about the potential fallout if it wasn't resolved this week. This process hasn't been easy and history will judge whether it was all worth it in the end.

"Relationships with the game have been tested and I know that has been a bit of a turnoff for fans", Sutherland said.

"To have retained the revenue-sharing model and increased the level we have and ensure that men, women, domestic and worldwide players receive a fair share is great news for the players and for the game", he said in a statement. We are restoring certainty and beginning to fix relationships, especially with the fans.

"We want the focus to be back on the cricket ..."

It was feared that tour, the ensuing trip to India and the Ashes series could be affected by the saga.

Mr Sutherland said that "both sides have compromised in order to reach agreement". Although the players had offered to sacrifice up to A$ 30 million (US$ 24 million) of their pay to grassroots cricket, CA stood by its stance and chose not to offer the revenue-sharing deal, which left the players disappointed. "The players did not choose this route and did not enjoy being on it".

"We should be looking to get the most out of the three-day match as by doing well over there you are expected to gain confidence and chances are high you will also carry that confidence when you take on the visitors", Abedin said. This was not a fight the players started.

The ACA, led by key players such as vice-captain David Warner, had initially been reluctant to accept a deal from CA which centred around replacing the existing revenue-sharing model with new contracts as part of a wider restructure of remuneration throughout cricket.

"But that's something we'll now work through together for the good of the game". "I look forward to Bangladesh, India and an exciting summer of Ashes cricket", he tweeted.
