Australia cricket: Players unemployed as pay dispute deadline passes

(AFP) – Australia’s top cricketers are effectively unemployed after a deadline for them to agree new pay and conditions passed without resolution.

The previous agreement between Cricket Australia and the country’s leading players expired on Friday, and no new deal has been struck.

Money set aside by the governing body will be re-routed to the grassroots.

The players’ union will meet on Sunday to discuss a possible boycott of the ‘A’ team’s tour of South Africa.

That tour comprises two four-day games, with the first beginning on 12 July.
The board, however, was offering increased pay deals for both the men’s and women’s teams.

If a deal cannot be struck, it places this winter’s Ashes series against England in doubt.
