In what can be termed as a massive relief to all stakeholders of Australian cricket, the ongoing pay dispute engulfing the players has finally come to an end.

With the last few months largely questioning the future of the cricketers, uncertainty loomed over the functioning of the sport in Australia. Both parties, Cricket Australia (CA) and the Australian Cricketers Association (ACA) have finally reached an agreement and we could soon see the Kangaroos back in action.

Cricket Australia’s official website and online portal, cricket.com.au, confirmed in a recently published article that the deal had been made between the two parties, and within some time, precise details would emerge about the deal.

The article further mentioned that with the deal being made, the upcoming tours of Bangladesh and India were no longer under threat and would go ahead in as planned initially. Had the deal not been made and had it led to the cancellation of any tour, there would have been a serious humiliation for CA.

cricket.com.au in its article mentioned,

“A deal has been reached to resolve Australian cricket’s protracted pay dispute, paving the way for the nation’s professional players to be re-contracted and for this month’s scheduled Test tour to Bangladesh to proceed as planned. The in-principle agreement was signed after a final round of face-to-face negotiations between Cricket Australia Chief Executive James Sutherland and his Australian Cricket Association counterpart Alistair Nicholson in Melbourne this morning.”

“Details of the deal and the new five-year Memorandum of Understanding that it underpins are expected to be revealed at a formal media announcement, to be held at the Melbourne Cricket Ground this afternoon. The central sticking point throughout the sometimes rancorous stand-off has been the model by which the players are paid,” the article added.
