Aspiring to reach a solution, Australian Cricketer’s Association (ACA) and Cricket Australia (CA) have been engaging in discussions over the continuing pay dispute of the country but yet to reach in any agreed terms, said ACA sources.

Australia’s ‘A’ tour to South Africa has already been fallen apart in absence of a revised pay deal with cricketers.
Alistair Nicholson, the Chief Executive Officer of the players’ union said, “The increased involvement of CA CEO James Sutherland has been pleasing. A better understanding has been established on both parties’ positions.”
Cricket Australia, now, believes the two decade old model of revenue sharing is unfit, under which cricketers get a fixed percentage of revenue.
