Smith, Warner meet with ACA to reaffirm their stance for Bangladesh tour
Prolific Aussie performers Steve Smith and David Warner together led a meeting with Australian Cricketers Association dignitaries Alistair Nicholson, Shane Watson and Simon Katich in order to reaffirm their position about the forthcoming tour in Bangladesh.
After the meeting Shane Watson posted in twitter saying, “Players very happy to contribute up to $30 million to assist with funding grassroots cricket. Very fair now Cricket Australia need to be fair in #fairshare.”
“Not sure the players can do much more to solve the dispute. We are really proud to offer up to an extra $30 million for grassroots” – Watson further tweeted.
It is reported Aussie cricketers echoed their support for the ‘peace plan term shit’ submitted by ACA.
Australia ‘A’ team earlier boycotted their scheduled tour to South Africa in between negotiation meetings among the debating sides.
Pace man Pat Cummins uttered his sheer frustration said, “Players are as frustrated as anyone else. We want to play. Offering even more to grassroots to get a deal.”
The trial to reach a negotiation in the pay dispute of Australian cricket is going on between CA Chief Executive James Sutherland and players’ union chief Alistair Nicholson.
