Bangladesh breaths easy as Australia ends pay dispute

Cricket Australia have agreed in principle to a Heads of Agreement with the Australian Cricketers' Association that resolves key issues and provides the basis for a full Memorandum of Understanding for 2017-22.

The agreement was signed between Cricket Australia Chief Executive James Sutherland and players' union chief Alistair Nicholson.

Australia's global and domestic cricketers have been unemployed since July 1 as an agreement on a new Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) could not be agreed upon before the expiration of the existing deal.

The ACA had vowed no player would make themselves available for selection until the new MOU was signed.

Australia's men's Test team are scheduled to fly to Dhaka on August 18 to begin their two-Test tour of Bangladesh.

In March, CA made an offer, proposing that the average pay of Australia's worldwide women's players would rise from $A79,000 to $A179,000, while the average remuneration of state cricketers would be more than double to $A52,000.

"It's a sensible compromise from both parties".

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

In a modernised revenue-sharing formula, CA forecasts a player payments pool of $459 million, which covers all male and female players.

Players who have been uncontracted for a over a month will now be paid again.

The pay dispute between CA and the ACA ended with both parties finally coming to an agreement.

"In announcing this agreement we are restoring certainty, beginning to fix relationships, especially with the fans".

"We want the focus to be back on the cricket". Australia A's tour to South Africa was subsequently called off last month after the players announced a boycott, and there were concerns that the Test tour to Bangladesh this month would meet the same fate.

Australian Cricketers' Association president Greg Dyer says the sport must ensure there is no repeat of the acrimonious pay spat that threatened to bring it to its knees.

"Success in this negotiation for the ACA was achieving revenue sharing for all players, gender equity, fair remuneration increases, greater input on scheduling and more grassroots investment. We will conduct a player vote in the next 24 hours to follow past precedent, but we expect that to come back positive", he added.
