CA offers new deal to break pay impasse

Cricket Australia on Friday revised its offer to players in a bid to resolve a bitter pay dispute that threatens to disrupt upcoming tours. The governing body said it has offered a number of concessions, including a greater share of surpluses for both international and domestic players.

The offer comes just a week before the current Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) expires on June 30. But the players' union responded that the latest offer was "unacceptable" and has been staunchly opposed to CA's plan to modify the existing MoU that provides a flat share of revenue for the players. CA had instead offered international men's and women's players a share of surpluses up to Aus 20 million while increases in domestic players' payments would be capped at 18 percent (men) and 150 percent (women). The letter did not say how much more CA was prepared to offer. But it did confirm that new contracts have been distributed to all Australian men's and women's players that are conditional upon a new MOU being finalised. Agencies
